Bold sound yet unobtrusive in presentation, the Wharfedale Vista 100 is ideal for those seeking a more subtle soundbar.

Wharfedale sound for your TV

Who better than loudspeaker expert Wharfedale to bring the sound of your TV to life? A six unit driver array with neodymium magnets gives the Vista 100 a full and broad response that's leagues ahead of a typical TV's sound quality. Ensuring the speakers sound their best, a 60W amplifier punches hard, meaning that sound fills even larger rooms.

Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D
With Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D technology, everyone in the room gets to hear a spacious, three-dimensional sound, wherever they sit. While the results will never be as good as being surrounded by physical speakers, this technology is the next best thing, and an improvement on typically flat-sounding TV speakers.

Bluetooth streaming
With an onboard Bluetooth receiver, the Vista 100 is equipped for streaming music from your smartphone, tablet or other device. Simply pair the device and stream your stored or streaming music via Bluetooth. With Bluetooth, the Wharfedale doesn't just improve your TV's sound, but it makes the most of your music, too.

Easy to use
The advantage of a soundbar over a home cinema system is its ease of use and convenience, and it's here where the Wharfedale Vista 100 really scores. Your TV connects to the soundbar via a single connection, either analogue or digital, and the Wharfedale has both optical and coaxial digital connections, so guaranteeing compatibility with your TV's digital output.

Wall mount option
With rear-mounted slot holes, the Wharfedale Vista 100 is easy to wall mount, if you need to. Thanks to unobtrusive dimensions, it's also easy to place without being visually intrusive.

Delivering all you'd expect from Wharfedale, the Vista 100 is an impressive all-rounder.

WHARFEDALE VISTA 100 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb value soundbar At this price, where you'd barely get a decent portable wifi sound device, it is a steal. Easy setup, looks beyond price tag, worthy tv sound upgrade and you can play audio straight to device without tv on - what is not to like. Is it an emersive, surround sound experience? No. But will it do the job of creating a better audio experience above the TV speakers - yes, unless you've an very, very expensive tv. For gamers without fat wallets, well worth the outlay too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money As a soundbar it is great value for money - bought as a present it was gratefully received set up quickly and easily and produced great sound for a small room. To get a better sound you would need to spend 3 times the money which might be needed for a bigger room. It easily accepted blue tooth and my granddaughter was soon dancing away. great sound great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best £60 I ever spent. In the past I have been a bit of an audiophile - surround sound with Onkyo amp, Accoustic Energy speakers, gold interconnects and miles of copper wiring. That all stopped of course with marriage and kids. I had shied away from soundbars as I thought that they couldn't compete with real surround. However I saw the soundbar in the shop clearance at £60. On line reviews were a mixed bag. Excellent deep rich bass, but with an intermittent bass distortion. I thought £60 worth a risk. In my years as an audiophile I had come to the conclusion that unless you had a specialist room, and high end equipment, many reviews were suffering from the Emperor's new clothes phenomenon. Once home I ran through some tests! The Matrix on Blu-ray sounded excellent...no distortion.Then I tried U2 Live in Boston on DVD - excellent..no distortion. This with a Panasonic DMP-BD80 with an optical link. In short, a very definite step up from the TV sound. And after 4 months, not a trace of distortion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing great but ok for the discounted value I bought this item to supplement the TV which nowadays due to slim design have woefully poor speakers. The sound bar itself is reasonable in terms of sound output and volume. Nothing outstanding though. It would depend greatly on the size of the TV room too. The 3D surround feature is nice. But the best bit is probably the Bluetooth connectivity which allows to one play music straight from iPhone etc. I think this is a good buy at its current discounted price of 70 odd but not for its original listed price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price I needed something better as the TV had no depth. After reading the other reviews I decided to try, I'm glad I did. I've not found it to have too much bass like others have said but you can adjust bass and treble to suit yourself if you need to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for the price. Bought this soundbar in Romford, good service in shop. Soundbar has good sound and easy to set up, however I would like to turn the bass down more as even on it's lowest setting it still booms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product at a good price The enriched sound from the sound bar compared with the inbuilt TV speakers complements the quality of our newly purchased 4K TV. The benefit of excellent in-store personal advice received at Richer Sounds on selection of a unit appropriate for the customer's needs should not be underestimated.
