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.

Excellent TV Very leased with this TV,excellent clear picture and sound is good enough not to warrant a sound bar. Linked it up with an old Panasonic video player & Panasonic DVD recorder/ player via John Lewis hdmi leads all working well 15 April 2014
SUPERB TV AFTER LOOKING AT TV,S FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS, READING REVIEWS AND CHECKING PRICES I DECIDED TO BUY THIS TV. I HAVE NOW HAD IT FOR A MONTH AND AM DELIGHTED WITH MY PURCHASE. IT IS A GOOD SOLID TV WITH AN EXCELLENT PICTURE. I HAVE BOUGHT A SOUND BAR WHICH DEFINITELY IMPROVES THE OVERALL SOUND WHEN WATCHING SPORT,FILMS AND MUSIC CHANNELS. FOR GENERAL PROGRAMMES THE SOUND WAS FINE. THE FIVE YEAR GUARATEE FROM JOHN LEWIS WAS A BONUS AND I COULD NOT FIND THE TV AT A LOWER PRICE ELSEWHERE. THE 3D (FOUR PAIR OF PASSIVE GLASSES PROVIDED WITH THE TV) IS STUNNING. THE SMART TV IS EASY TO NAVIGATE EVEN FOR A DINOSAUR LIKE ME. ALL IN ALL TOTALLY DELIGHTED WITH MY PURCHASE. 14 April 2014
average well it is Sony a well known make, but bad point with this product is, you can not download and install any new apps unlike other smart tvs such as Samsung etc... 02 April 2014
Great smart TV The tv's smart features, colour's and sound are all amazing. I was skeptical on the passive 3D as I also own an active 3D tv but that feature is also equally as good 26 March 2014
Fantasy Football The Sony Bravia delivers in every department. With a sleek design and great picture quality once again Sony delivered and I will continue to make Sony my TV of choice. 18 March 2014
Excellent tv Excellent tv all round picture excellent .sound excellent price.excellent j Lewis excellent so get your butt down to j Lewis and buy a top sony 805 25 February 2014
More than what's listed After seeing a demo in store we decided on this TV. No doubt it is extremely good. Added features which aren't mentioned in JL's description is that both the "One-touch" and regular remotes are included. and also this TV also has a satellite tuner too. Anyone with a satellite dish can watch all the free to air programmes as well as the FREEVIEW and internet based ones. Recording to portable hard drives is easy to do. Set up for all features is very very easy, This TV is very good value, very well built and designed and offers years of entertainment. 19 February 2014
Sony.. Does what is says on the tin!! Four months of research into which Smart TV to get, I have a professional broadcast background, so quality of Vision is very important. I changed my mind so many times, cause there is so much options out there, but I all depends on what you want in a TV. I finally narrowed it down to 3 choices, LG, Panasonic & Sony. Went to John Lewis in Stratford centre in London to see the TVs in action. LG quality was poor so lost out as soon as I saw it action. The Panasonic Viera TX-L42ET61B was really good, but the Sony Bravia KDL42W805 was amazingly so good, that even my Mrs said this is one!! So order the next day online, and delivery was amazing. Even got a phone call from John Lewis to confirm my order. TV was easy to set up and looks amazing mounted on wall. TV is so light and looks so cool. The sound to be honest is not bad as everyone has said, it all depends on the size of your living room, but I got a soundbar as well. The Sony HT-CT60 2.1. I will not always turn it on, cause it will upset the neighbours. Soundbar a must purchase, just based on the value of price. The picture quality Amazing. The 3D feature Amazing. Already had two family members go and purchase this TV just based on seeing it at my flat. :-) This TV is amazing for sports, the smart application are good, as I am an avid Netflix Fan, so it has it on it. Sky Sports HD is such a treat. I can see what every one was saying about the black levels, but if the TV is wall mounted you don't even notice it. Trust me this is a TV to be wall mounted cause it gives a different feel to you living room. Honestly if you want amazing picture quality, this is the TV. I have not even changed the picture settings caused I am actually very happy with the factory settings. 09 February 2014
