You look like a movie. You sound like a song
To begin with, I was happy enough to lament – along with everyone else – the horrible sound the vast majority of TVS make. It often seems the better the picture, the more undermined it is by the thin, shrill, entirely unsatisfactory noises that accompany it. Lately, though, I’ve come to realise the solution is in our own hands. We are far from short of brilliantly effective, beautifully discreet ways to put a rocket up the sound of our TV – check out the mix of six soundbars and soundbases at a huge range of prices (p36) and realise you needn’t suffer the zizzy wasp-in-a-bottle sound your TV makes a moment longer. There’s no longer an excuse: soundbars and/or soundbases are now as affordable and as compact as you need, and as expensive, as multi-purpose and as aurally stunning as you’d wish.
