Sounds Great


I purchased this soundbar as it was recommended by Which, and I am not disappointed. The sound really fills the room and speach is clearer. It was easy to set up and the advice from Richer Sounds to purchase a HMDI cable made operating much easier.

Great sound


I was almost driven to despair by the lack of clear set up instructions but someone from Richer Sounds miraculously managed to take me through the set up on the phone. The results are stunning. Thank you.
