Tech Roundup: choosing soundbars in 2020

Qobuz News On February 6, 2020
Over a few years, the home cinema has changed from multiple speakers positioned around a room to one single speaker placed underneath the television, a soundbar. This elongated speaker alone is capable of reproducing all channels of cinema soundtracks and simulating surround-sound. They are sometimes accompanied by a subwoofer, sold in conjunction or as an optional extra. Their quality has largely improved over the last few years and the players of the Hi-Fi world have invested themselves in the domain. Because soundbars no longer only tend to cinema, they can take the place of a Hi-Fi system. All they need is to offer Bluetooth, or better, a network connection, to be capable of reading most audio files and accessing streaming services. Read on for ten remarkable soundbars that are comfortable with handling both music and video.
