Give your TV a substantial boost in sound with the Roth Sub Zero soundbar.


Utilising high quality drive units and powerful HD amplifiers, the Roth Sub Zero soundbar gives a detailed and spacious sound that most TVs can't hope to match. Designed for low distortion, the Sub Zero can be turned up to high volume levels without the boxy distortion and harshness that you'd find with TV speakers. Fractal Expansion sound processing gives an enveloping sound that you wouldn't credit from a single speaker cabinet.


In addition to the standard stereo speakers, the Sub Zero also comes with two built-in Ultra-Bass drivers. These negate the requirement for a separate subwoofer and give the Sub Zero a genuine full-range sound. Action movies now have the impact that TV speakers simply can't replicate.


With a choice of two analogue and a single digital optical input, the Roth Sub Zero has the ability to connect up three devices, such as TV, games console and Blu-ray player. At just 89mm deep it's easy and unobtrusive to position. Both wall mount brackets and table stands are included, giving you a choice of position.

Neat and easy to use, yet packed full of quality Roth technical knowhow, the Sub Zero is the no-compromise soundbar.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Roth Sub Zero Soundbar Purchased this unit from Richer Sounds in Newcastle. It is Small Compact and powerful enough shake the room. Bought this as open box deal as previously on display. This is an astonishing piece of Audio equipment with quality build and sound for the money paid. No regrets whatsoever. Compliments my Sony televison. Best result use an optical cable. Thanks to all the staff at Newcastle Richer Sounds. I always have an excellent service from my local store. 06 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Best Value Sound Bar! I have a Sony BD player connected via optical, a Sonos Connect via RCA and a Sky Now box connected via 3.5mm jack. For the price it performs very well. I've played a couple of films and the sound quality was surprisingly immersive and detailed. There was also a slight feeling of surround sound. It's worth mentioning that I also have a Yamaha YSP-3300 in the living room and have been very disappointed with both surround effects and music quality. I expected much more from something that retails for ú1,000. So pound for pound the Roth seems to perform as well if not better than the Yamaha. Be aware you may need to change some audio settings in your blu-ray. I had to set DTS to downmix. Also tried the Sonos and was impressed with the quality. Audiophiles will obviously not feel the same way, but as background music while in the shower and getting changed it is more than adequate. It can be quite bassy, but thankfully you can control the bass level independently of the main volume. 25 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby sound bar Did quite a lot of research on soundbars, chose the roth as it measured up perfectly to fit into my tv stand, the guys as RS were honest with there advice as it isn't the best on the market but comparing it to the rest in that price bracket it does stand out, I was impressed witrh the output and a vast improvment on my sony tv speakers. Had a demo instore which persuaded me to buy it, thanks for that guys. Simple to set up and the base was powerful enough to feel it through the floor. for the price its woth a punt on this one 13 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby It's All About The Connection!!! I connected the Roth via an optical cable to my Blu-Ray player, the RCA cables to the TV and the jack to my MP3 player. I put it through its paces with 'Pacific Rim' and it sounded clear and bombastic with the dialogue holding its own. The 'surround' mode widened the stereo channels beautifully and every now and again created an 'illusion' of surround channels. Music-wise, I played 'Prophecy' by Solstice and it was rich, crisp and vibrant with lovely bass tones. I then let my 6 year old son play 'Lego Pirates of the Caribbean' on the Wii. The Roth brought out nuances that I hadn't heard before. If you've got a large living room and a big TV, I'd always head towards a 5.1 or more set up. However, for a standard living room and modest sized TV, the Roth Sub Zero does the business. However, it's all about the connections. Where possible, use an optical cable. It brings the whole thing to life, particularly on Blu-Ray. All that in addition to the price; I can't recommend it highly enough. 20 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good value for money Awesome bit of kit, sound and bass amazing not like other sound bars that don't have any sub woofers built in. have bought 2 ( bought other as present ) 13 December 2013
Rated 4 out of 5áby Good value for money Bought this unit to enhance the sound from my five year old Sony Bravia TV. I have connected it up to the TV's headphone socket with a mini jack plug. I can wind the sound up and down via my Sky controller. Generally it does a reasonable job for the price that I paid. My only real complaint is that when the volume on the TV is wound down to less that 20 (on the Sony scale) the unit can go into sleep mode. To get it going again you have to wind the volume up or use the Roth's own little controller to power up the unit, quite irritating!!! Overall apart from being a bit bulky it is a good little soundbar. 19 November 2013
Rated 2 out of 5áby So disappointed i took it back A sound system to accompany you new smart TV is essential. The Roth looked good but after setting it up it soon became annoying. Firstly you can only adjust the volume by using the Roth control. there is no ARC on the Roth. Its a bit chunkier than most soundbars because it doesn't have a sub woofer, so it physically blocked the remote to TV sensor. As reported in other reviews I noticed a strange sound accompanying speech. You could only hear it if there was no background noise but once i could hear it, it bugged me. Finally the unit was faulty and failed to work a few times. I took it back and Richer sounds were great. I upgraded to a Panasonic SC-HTB20 and it sounds much better and volume works off the tv controller 15 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Why pay more? Visited the Weybridge store to purchase a Yamaha sound bar but Lee ascertained that we had no optical connector on our old flat-screen TV and wouldn't, therefore, benefit from the best sound available. He suggested the Roth, (ú70 cheaper than the Yamaha and ú251 cheaper than our original choice of a Bose Solo). We are both delighted by the clear, well-defined sound of the Roth Sub Zero. Speech is clearer, music sounds superb and the option of adjusting the base separately means we were quickly able to set everything up to suit our taste. We will be returning to Richer Sounds to replace our TV. A shop demonstration by knowledgeable staff meant that we could buy with confidence and will return. 14 August 2013
