I'm looking for a compact, economical solution that will sound better than the TV (Panasonic 32" D400) in our small apartment.


The TV has inbuilt Freeview and we also use Netflix and Spotify.


I have the TV and a MiBox 4K Android TV box and that's it.


The TV has two HDMI inputs, one of which has audio return channel and it has an optical audio output. 


The space is a small lounge (~<10sqm) in an apartment and I don't want to blast the neighbours with bass.


One thing I don't know is whether the HDMI ARC will output audio when watching Freeview?

I'm sure your TV has digital audio out, so your best bet is to get a soundbar or small stereo with digital audio in, or if you want to use hdmi arc a home entertainment system.
