My brother has JBL SB400 which I feel is, while usable and pretty decent and nothing much to complain about, but just feels like it simply doesn't beat the sound of normal speakers.

Turns out it is actually one of the better performing soundbar sets in a sea of wtf soundbars.

Hi all,

I have a LG 65" 4K 65UJ632T using it mostly for regular TV from Singtel Box. I watch news and drama and lots of football matches.

I wanted to improve the sound from the standard TV speakers.

Besides that, I also wish to play TuneIN and Spotify to the soundbar when I am not watching TV.

I have space constrains and may have problem putting in a sub. While I understanding soundbar without sub may be underwhelming but I am hoping there is one that would work well with just the SB alone considering my moderate usage.

What would be your recommendation? Budget may go up to $1,000 but wish to spend less if there are good cheaper options.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks! Will certainly check it out.

I read online review of MS650 also highly rated and that seems to work well even without the sub. I do have limited space so adding a sub may have some constrains.

CFO dun allow lah... :sad:
你當時就唔應該買SONOS聲叭。
SONOS聲叭嘅價格,就算打佐折,都可以俾你買到其他品牌全套,包含低音箱嘅聲叭。而且音質仲可以贏過SONOS添!
