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.

Panasonic Viera TX-L55ET61B LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55" with Freeview HD and 2x 3D Glasses 4.6 5 8 8
Great TV for the price. Purchased this last week to replace my less than 6 month old Samsung tv which had died on me. Was a bit apprehensive going from a Plasma to an LED but i shouldn't have been as this tv, once calibrated, is excellent. Sports look great and the kids are loving the 3D. I would have given 5 stars for the picture but the only letdown is the speakers which are some of the worst i have heard from a tv but i have a surround sound setup so not an issue for me but may be for some. 28 March 2014
Amazing 3D TV Watching 3D movies on this tv has exceeded my expectations. The picture quality is excellent and colours are very natural. Really pleased with my choice! And the current price is very good for what you are getting. Highly recommended! 22 March 2014
Excellent Smart Tv Very pleased with the Tv ,Fantastic picture , good sound now I have the souround sound up and running. First class service from john Lewis 16 January 2014
hugely impressed Can't fault this TV. Must admit that I have not used the smart features yet or the sound. However the picture is first class connected to my ps3 and sky HD. Sound output via my sonos sound bar is incredible. Have not experienced any motion issues with sport content. Passive 3d is incredible. Very glad I didn't spend more as I don't see what extra I would have got for the money. Only quibble is that the glasses are cheap plastic and you only get 2. However glasses from the cinema work perfectly. 27 December 2013
Excellent TV but not so Smart Warrants 5 stars as a TV Pros: Great display in 2D and 3D Intuitive remote and menu system Great connectivity Cons: Pathetic speakers - at least a sound bar is needed Limited low quality apps - connect an Android TV Box instead, much better result Really annoying app market - hit mute! No setting for this. Beware if you have the sound up! Home screens - a tablet does the job better (while watching the TV!) PS I wrote a much better, more informative review than this but space is very limited here 24 December 2013
Happy viewer We are very pleased with our new TV. It was easy to set up, the only dodgy bit was actually connecting the two pieces of the stand together. It was just a bit difficult to manoeuvre. We then had a problem because we didn't have an HDMI connection from our Sky box but we soon remedied that with a HDMI to scart converter box. All in all a very good reception and a very smart looking TV. 04 December 2013
brilliant value product Great product ,great value dilivered with service you can trust and just for extra security you get extended warranty.For a great nights sleep i always shop with John Lewis. 19 November 2013
Average quality Bought this on the remommendation of JL. I've been disappointed with three things; the blurring of moving images, especially with sport, I can see a strange colourless squiggle that moves across the screen, and finally the sound/picture synchronisation. I managed to fix the latter by setting a 40 millisecond delay on my Sky+ box. Last time round I bought a Panasonic Plasma. It was much better for sport, even if it did conk out beyond repair after only six years. 11 August 2013
