Buying a soundbar for my dad as he's hard of hearing and complained that the TV speakers very crappy. I don't know much about such stuff hence asking for advice here.
Budget hopefully below $300 but slightly flexible. A very basic soundbar would suffice I think. He mainly watches mediacorp TV shows and some movies occasionally. It will be placed below/in front of TV in the living room. Wanted to get the xiaomi soundbar but no remote.
He would need to have remote control for sure. Doesn't need many features as my dad would not know how to use them.
Sound quality wise doesn't have to be amazing as my dad can't be much of an audiophile now with his hearing issues.
Thanks in advance guys!
I'm using Yamaha YAS-108, comes with remote, has ARC so volume can be controlled by tv remote if tv has ARC. Height is 5.4cm so quite low, didn't block my tv ir sensor.Sound not bad, pretty limited EQ capability though, only way to control is through surround sound modes (eg TV/Movie/sports) which are only available on phone app. I bought for $299 on Qoo10 when they had $30 voucher off during Christmas. Seller was Audiohouse. I just checked their Qoo10 page they have $50 voucher for $300+ purchase. Offer ends today.

K Qoo10 coupon works, managed to reduce to $279. But availability it says end Jan, so if you are in a hurry to get might not be suitable.

$760係全套夾埋無線後置喇叭?或無?
規格方面我認為Nakamichi SockWave7.1有得同新力爭。而且美金宜家跌少少,計埋運送,價錢方面可以同新力爭!

如果係二手,夾埋後置喇叭,我就必撐! 無後置喇叭,新機,Mustafa賣$829祗是貴個幾十蚊。二手抵唔抵就睇個人啦。

Mustafa嘅衹係標準聲吧+低音箱配套。既然$760嘅係新機,你考慮下嘍。。。我自己本身依然偏向Naka。

如果視聽範圍細,低音箱一個就掂啦。唔駛去到7.2。基本上7.1,7.2聲吧都係一樣構造,一樣單元設計。所以以價錢,配置嚟講,Naka7.1與z9f(加埋環繞喇叭)都一樣。但係效能方面,Naka喇叭單元位置上就比新力更加有效果。

Mustafa賣嘅Naka聲吧,無論$1++(2.0),$2++(2.1無HDMI),$3++(2.1+HDMI)款都係無多多聲道。

繼續留意Nakamichi嘅易俾網頁嘍。。。尋日我更新佢地嘅易俾頁面,發現佢地嘅第一代舊款有補貨。咁。。。7.2elite應該有希望重新銷售。
過佐年再睇囉。。。
