Another great feature with this MusicCast BAR is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Simply pair with compatible MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you’ve got speaker cable-free rear speakers – perfect for when you’ve hard floor coverings that won’t accept cable underneath.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No bass or low end whatsoever - buy a subwoofer! Brought this yesterday from Bournemouth. Very ably assisted by Robert, who was polite, knowledgeable and knew his stuff. Took a bit of a punt on this one, gambling this might have enough of an impact over my existing tv speakers to not need a separate subwoofer. Sadly I was wrong. You can purchase the Yamaha Bar 400, which comes with the subwoofer (twice the cost), or purchase the separate Yamaha SUB 100 with this. Without either of these options, this sounder alone feels quite tinny. It expands the sound space and the quality of the midrange for sure, but has absolutely nothing even approaching a low end. Nicely made, looks good, and good connectivity (very rare to get Airplay at this price). With a subwoofer, I think this would sound great though, just can't stretch that far. Took it in next day, easy swap for a Denon, no problem from Richer Sounds (read all the other reviews, very common theme!). Will leave a review for that one. Thanks to all at Bournemouth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, Great service. I bought the soundbar a few weeks ago and have been very impressed by it. Brilliant service and £120 cheaper than Currys Wow

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound I bought this sound bar last week and am really pleased with the sound and ease of use. The good point is that you don't have buy additional bracket to attach it to the wall. The only downside is that the lights for information is on the top which you can't see.
