Samsung HW-MS650

Samsung's HW-MS650 soundbar might be one of the best soundbars of 2017. It is tremendous, achieving not just a wall-shaking volume but also a quality of sound that you’ve no right to hear from a one-body audio product.

Creative Labs Sound BlasterX Katana

However, the Creative Sound BlasterX Katana is still a great soundbar and it’s much more flexible than the TV2. For keen gamers who want something flexible for movies and music as well, it’s a great buy.

LG SJ9

The sound quality of LG’s debut Dolby Atmos soundbar is pretty incredible. The power and scale of its sound beggars belief considering how attractive and compact the system is, while the sense of height in the audio mix is uncanny. The UK price feels a...

Philips Fidelio B5

The Fidelio B5's ability to instantly transform from a traditional soundbar into a wireless surround system makes it a seriously smart bit of kit. It may not be super-loud, but it offers quality, usability and versatility in spades.

Canton DM 75

Canton's DM 50, reviewed last year, is perhaps best used with TVs around the 48in mark; the step-up DM 75 on test here supports screens up to 60in (or up to 40kg in weight). Bigger screens need a bigger sound and the DM 75's roomier cabinet should...

Samsung HW-J8500

Neither of those models are curved, however, and the HW-J8500 is definitely the best-sounding 'bar Samsung has produced. Worth a punt if you need a sonic tonic for your new curved TV.

Canton DM 900

We like the idea of the Canton DM 900. The space-saving design of the bar is to be appreciated, and there are clearly benefits to being able to position the subwoofer as you see fit. But in practice, and at this price, this set-up is inadequate against...

Philips Fidelio B8

It doesn’t sound as good; it doesn’t produce as convincing a height effect; and it doesn’t offer as comprehensive a list of features. It would have to be £200 cheaper to even start to offer a tempting alternative.
