Best sound bars under £100
We're really impressed with this big-brand model. It manages an impressive sound and even comes with a separate subwoofer for a bit of extra bass. It's easy to use, just make sure you have it set up dead-centre for where you'll be listening from, as quality drops off as you move off-centre.
This compact sound bar comes with a built-in subwoofer and works well wirelessly, whether it's wall-mounted or sat on the TV table. This model sounds bigger and richer than you'd expect, although audio quality suffers slightly during music playback. Even so, ease of use is where this sound bar really excels, especially if you're connecting via Bluetooth.
A no-thrills sound bar, we still think this model is worth a look because of its remarkably low price. It might not have received the highest scores from our panel of audio experts but it's the best you'll find in the budget category We reckon it's great for speech, so if you don't frequently watch heart-pumping action movies and spend your time watching daytime TV, panel shows or documentaries, it could be a good choice.
