With the Monitor Audio SB2 you get to keep your AV receiver while enjoying the style and compact convenience of a soundbar.

Passive soundbar; you choose the amp

If you like the idea of a soundbar - and who wouldn't as they're a sleek and neat solution to improved TV sound - but are loathed to get rid of your existing AV receiver, then the Monitor Audio SB-2 could be just what you're looking for. With no amplification built in, it's ready to plug straight into the left, centre and right channel outputs of your existing amp/receiver. This way you get the full benefit of your existing hardware with the addition of superb Monitor Audio speakers.

High quality Monitor Audio sound
When it comes to sound quality, the Monitor Audio SB-2 shows its hi-fi heritage. With a powerful bass, accurate mid-range and detailed treble response, the SB2 sounds every bit the quality hi-fi speaker. Making use of three C-CAM gold dome tweeters and separate C-CAM woofers, you not only get precise audio but also a sound stage that's wide enough to fully immerse.

Powerful bass
To make sure that explosions can be felt as well as heard, the SB-2 also features three ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Reflex) speakers. These are dedicated to giving you a deep and powerful bass although, if you really want to 'go low', then a separate active subwoofer is still the best option.

Sleek good looks
Rather than having front left, centre and right speakers scattered across your wall, the Monitor Audio SB2 places them all in one, sleek casing. With its black grille and contrasting brushed aluminium side panels, the SB2 looks discreet yet classy.

Easy placement, optional wall bracket
Although its slim height and depth makes it easy to place by your TV, an optional wall bracket is also available. The low profile BASB2 bracket keeps the speaker close to the wall, meaning those sleek good looks aren't spoiled.

The perfect size for TVs between 50 - 60", Monitor Audio's SB2 passive soundbar offers the best of all worlds.

Colour Black
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good-quality and good-looking sound bar I wanted to keep my AV amp and some rear speakers for a 5.1 surround-sound experience, but "room aesthetics" meant my front speakers had to go when we purchased a much larger TV. My sound bar is simply placed directly in front of the TV, not wall-mounted. The sound bar, being passive, is of course easy to 'set up' ie just insert in the banana plugs (had to remove the plastic inserts in the sound bar first, the usual story) for the centre and L+R speakers. 30 seconds, all done. Then calibrate sound levels using the AV amp's microphone, sit back and enjoy..... The sound is good, surprisingly so given that I had good-quality front speakers beforehand. Vocals are particularly clear, bass is (probably) OK but since I have a separate sub-woofer, can't comment. No audible distortion, no 'nasalness' in the vocals, silky upper frequencies, reasonably-wide sound field ie not too directional, just about right.
