    Help Looking for a soundbar

    Hi guys.
    I'm thinking of getting a soundbar.
    I'm currently rocking a 40" Sammy tv which doubles as a pc monitor too.
    Sound is ok, but I want a bit more oomph

    Was looking at this one [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    I know Samsung do their own but I don't want a separate sub

    Presumably, if I connect via optical, the TV remote will control the sound bar volume? - don't want a separate remote either.

    appreciate any advice or recommendations

    Default Looking for a soundbar

    I just got this bar off gumtree local yesterday for 80 quid excellent sound for a budget bar and the 60 watt built in sub does the job.

    Also watch the review on YouTube it's a very good budget sound bar no hdmi ports tho just optical inputs also has an IR bar sensor so your tv and all other remotes still work if blocking the tv one

    Ive got a Yamaha YSP2200 with my Panny (so VIERA link works) once you've played around with the settings after the MIC setup its bloody witchcraft how it does the surround. You can pick these up for about £500 now!... even cheaper 2nd user! The Sub looks like a fat centre speaker. and its got two opticals, 3 out x 1 in HDMI full 1080p.

    DONT BUY CHEAP you'll regret it..

    Hope this helps
