If you’re looking for a high-quality sound experience yet want to maintain a clutter-free living room, a soundbar would be a perfect indulgence for you. Keeping it compact, clear and minimalist, a quality soundbar almost matches the calibre of a sub-woofer-powered home theatre system yet so much more. While being a compact home accessory, the soundbar’s sleek silhouette adds another layer of style to your living room. From Bose to Yamaha ere are 5 soundbars perfect for minimalists who value high-quality sound.
At first glance itself, you’ll notice that the Sony HT bar is packing tons of bass. With 800W of power, this Sony soundbar boasts 4K HDR support, a touch panel and an in-built sub-woofer. With seven audio cones, we’d expect the same power and bass as a full-blown home theatre system. But incase, you’d like to take it a step further, there’s an external sub-woofer that comes with this.
