I've got a Sony 49" TV and would love a sound bar for better audio.

 

Budget only allows for something around $200 - $300.

 

What can be recommended?

 

I'm no audio geek. I just want better audio from the TV, compared to what I currently have.

If you're in Wellington it'd be that unused one I have available for a really good rate :-)

 

Seriously, I do have a Panasonic SC-HTB485 SOUND BAR for sale, $100.  Actually does have quite good sound.

Any warranty left on it?

 

Boxed or unboxed?

I saw a Sony one for $167 on special at Noel Leeming the other day...

 

 

 

Had a sound bar and subwoofer and the sound wasn't half bad for an old set of ears like mine.

Might be a dumb question, but is there a huge difference between a soundbar with a subwoofer ($200-300), compared to a soundbar ($200-$300) only?

There will most likely be some great second hand soundbar deals out there...

 

New entry level soundbars (especially those without subs) tend to be 'sound re-inforcers' rather than units that really improve audio performance.
