Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As


Panasonic Viera TX-L42E6B LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 42" with Freeview HD 4.6 5 42 42
Smart and sleek but mild bugs I've found that the system can get into a muddle using some of the clever features like youtube or streaming media from a PC. It's a classic "have you tried turning it off and on again". Once you lean to turn it off at the mains if it gets in a muddle, everything else so far is absolutely great and I plan to buy a second one for another room. 08 April 2014
Buying two as really happy with product I bought this television for myself. The stand needs two people to attach it to the tv, but is not difficult to do. Tuning was so simple, the controls for the television are really easy to operate. The sound quality without a sound bar is excellent, though it does need to be slightly higher when using the Blu-ray player. The blu ray player can be controlled using the tv problem. My son was so impressed with this tv that he is going to buy one shortly. The delivery men were lovely and very helpful, free delivery included. Well done to John Lewis and team. 06 April 2014
More than pleased Purchased this TV back in December at a special offer price. So pleased with it - easy to set up, brilliant picture, and although it replaced a 40inch Sony TV, it is actually smaller and looks so much neater. Great buy. 03 April 2014
Impressive features and screen image. Impressive features and screen image. Sound quality ok considering thin depth of TV but good with a Sony soundbar. 01 April 2014
