Always been in two minds about buying a soundbar? Well, how about we add the word ‘smart’ to it? Enticing enough, now?
If you are one of those people who have been stumped by the possibility of a ‘smart soundbar for TV’ existing, then you’ve come to the just the place. Yes, smart soundbars exist...and they are indeed as awesome as they sound (both in name and literally ;)). Soundbars are a must-have if you want to turn your TV sound up many notches. They’re cool, they’re thumping, and they’re all about turning your favourite music, shows and movies into the most memorable, life-like audio experience ever.
But...wait for it...smart soundbars are a different beast altogether.
You: ‘So, are you saying there is an Alexa soundbar out there and I have not even heard about it?’
Well, yes indeed. Time to make you hear about them loud and clear...
What is a smart sound bar for TV?
Imagine your favourite soundbar and your favourite smart speaker had a baby. That’s when you get a smart sound bar for TV.
A smart soundbar comprises an onboard voice assistant, like Amazon Alexa, that allows you to control it with your voice. What this essentially means is that:
- You can change its volume and settings with voice command.
- You can connect it to various devices with your voice.
- You can ask it updates, news, questions and more – and it will reply back promptly.
- You can even use the smart soundbar with Alexa or any other voice assistant to control your TV! Sorry, remote.
You: ‘Wow! But...why don’t I just buy a smart speaker, then?’
Of course, you can...as long as you are okay with your buddy Alexa not being able to hear your voice commands from far away. Or don’t really care if you can play your favourite morning jam in 120 W booming, immersive sound by uttering a small sentence as soon as you wake up.
To us, that sounds like giving up on a lot of fun, mate.
You: ‘So, you are saying that I can...’
