KÖNIG König Piano 4 : Replaced my 5.1 surround sound set up!

Soundbar Speakers
1

Excellent price for money, obviouly at this cost you simply cannot evaluate it to a bose, but it definitely does increase the seem from films and singing artists and so on. The optical cable supplied in the box is 2nd fee, really bad, wont hold its connection. They could charge just a few kilos more and box a decent cable.

This is a relatively hefty 80cm very long soundbar in glossy piano black. It is provided with an assortment of cables which include hdmi, optical spdif, aux & rca. There is also a wall mount if you will need it. But:shiny piano black = fingerprint/dust magnet. The instructions are terrible – practically nothing a lot more than ‘look at the illustration & make the right connections’. This is great if you are av savvy. If you are not you are probable to wrestle. You may not for example realise that the optical spdif cable may well not deliver any seem on hd channels unless you modify the hdmi configurations on your tv set.

Normally poo-pooed the thought of a soundbar. Both go with the speakers with your television or a whole blown encompass av procedure. You is not going to get any encompass effects or a good bass punch. I failed to know how anaemic my tv set audio sounded just before the könig. The soundbar alone is a glossy black, about 32 inches long. It is not that considerably of a dust magnet and feels properly produced. The box contains a wall bracket so you can mount it below your tv if you have that set up, and a collection of audio and video cables for all the connections on the soundbar (pretty beneficial). There are guidance, but while they’re extremely essential, it can be not complicated to get the job done out. On the right stop there are 4 buttons for electrical power, quantity up/down and audio decide on. The distant has far more buttons, but there is certainly no lights / exhibit on it to clearly show what you have picked or seem stage. On the soundbar itself there are lights to display what input you’ve got picked out and a crimson led for ability. An on/off swap rounds out controls on the again, so you can change it entirely off. In use, the difference in seem high quality evaluate to just the television was astonishing.Here are the specifications for the KÖNIG König Piano 4:

  • Enter your model number

The soundbar structure is nicely accomplished, and while it is major, it fits in very well under/in front of my television, so it isn’t going to look much too intrusive in the space inspite of its dimensions. (there is a wall mount integrated in the offer if you favor to hang it on the wall)it is simple to set up and which is fortunate due to the fact the user handbook is relatively simple. There is an illustration with the figures from one – 29 (all depicting buttons on the soundbar/remote) and then the upcoming webpage offers the description of these figures. Very simple set up suggestions are offered for using the bluetooth operate, but other than that you have to use the illustration and button descriptions to operate out how to set it up, but as it is pretty self-explanatory, i guess which is alright for most end users. I began with the bluetooth setup and it was truly straightforward: swap on the soundbar, set the supply to bluetooth on the distant, and simply pair the soundbar with your cell phone or other bluetooth device like you would typically do. I then analyzed the soundbar with my television set. I had some challenges placing it up with the rca cable, but the aux cable labored fantastic, so that is not a trouble. Inputs on the again of the soundbar are clearly marked which all over again makes for quick setup.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Makes sound sense.
  • A quality and value solution to poor TV sound
  • Low budget, high quality sound.

Current led televisions are brilliant for picture and aesthetics, and one particular with a forty inch monitor is now only marginally even bigger, but a good deal lighter, than a seven calendar year old 32 inch set. (it is mainly down to the dimension of the bezel. ) where they can not compete with more mature styles is in seem. The slender edges indicate there is nowhere for a company to incorporate nearly anything extra than a pair of extremely smaller speakers that emit similarly compact and slender audio. To strengthen that seem, some type of exterior gadget is desired, and there are three possibilities accessible. A soundbase has a fairly confined alternative while a encompass technique is impractical for several individuals, so what do you do?. There is often the 3rd alternate that of a soundbar. There is a huge range of alternative for these, with an similarly broad assortment of prices, and dutch company konig has a new just one out that sits at the reduce conclusion of the spectrum, the piano 4. There is a virtually similar soundbar from a united kingdom company referred to as kitsound and konig also have a less expensive model of the a single reviewed right here (with no the connections), but this is an updated model of each individuals. It is really black and shiny (therefore the ‘piano’ in the identify), which appeals to the two dust and fingerprints, whilst the front is mesh and incorporates too shiny led’s to present what resource you might be employing, however it really is privileged these are only lit for a several seconds. On the ideal hand finish are 4 buttons on/off (from standby), volume up, quantity down, and method. As this is 80cm vast, 9cm substantial and eight.

Good value for money, obviouly at this price you cannot compare it to a bose, but it really does enhance the sound from films and singing artists etc. The optical cable supplied in the box is 2nd rate, very poor, wont hold its connection. They could charge just a couple pounds more and box a decent cable.

My concerns on the hav-sb500. . A must buy even with issues. Read on?i thought this be a good buy, i wished i’d listened to my friends. From that day i got the sound bar i got problems, i knew by the reviews issues can accrue. Nothing like i experienced, i got no sound what so ever from the unit, people will say this is an unfair review but i’m being honest. We eventually got sound but only by the bluetooth, headphone jack nothing by hdmi, optical cable’s this is the reason why i wanted this model hav-sb500. At leased i had sound now, but not the way i intend. I even sent an e-mail to konig for help as the manual was next to useless. Its been 3 days since, i have now got full sound through hdmi, optical, aux and headphone jack. Not due to konig e -mailing me, just by thinking logically it must be the leads supplied; it was.

Great but responds to other device’s remote controls. I love the sound output from this, i have used it on bluetooth, optical and aux connections (all the cable are supplied making it easy to play 🙂 ) for ease of use, despite lack of detailed instructions, and sound i’d give this bar a 5. However it has a huge issue for me in that it responds to my remote controls for now tv, freesat (humax) and my samsung tv. For example using the 0 on my samsung remote changes the input channel used by the soundbar whether or not it is connected to the tv, hence when changing channels / selecting programs on any of the mentioned devices i lose sound and have to re-select the correct input. Worse if i use the hdmi inputs and connect to the tv via the hdmi out then using the humax remote (or the now tv remote) loses me sound and vision as the soundbar changes it’s input channel. Note that none of my devices responds to the soundbar remote it is a one way issue. Amazon were great and sent out a replacement but it now seems that the issue is with the design as the new soundbar does exactly the same. Note that despite the above i have decided to keep the soundbar as i like the soundi now only use one of the optical connections (connected to tv)and bluetooth for music and accept that i lose sound and once i have selected my channel / film etc then i need to use the sounbar’s remote to reset the input channel.

Excellent product, good replacement for pc speakers. . Bought this to replace my pc speakers (4. It feels solid and well built and the hard plastics do not ‘creak’ like some cheap products do. Set up was simple; just a plug and adaptor and it came with all the connections you need. I was sceptical at first as i attempted to plug the optical lead in and nothing worked. 5mm audio lead into the front of my pc and that worked and so did the supplied hdmi cable connection (incidently the hdmi cable has a right angle ‘folding action’ which allows you to save space behind the speaker and butt it up against a wall). I paired my samsung note 3 with the soundbar and that was also very easy and worked as it should. Sound replication had crisp and clear treble with good bassy tones however this was at a mid range volume.

Easy to set up and gives much better sound quality. Easy to set up and gives much better sound quality than my panasonic viera. The kit comes with a myriad of cables and connectors so should provide you with multiple ways of connecting. Build quality is good and it also comes with a wall bracket. Mine is mounted on this bracket above the tv so the sound bar does not block any of the remote sensors for the tv sky box or dvdvery good value for money.

Replaced my 5. 1 surround sound set up. This is a very impressive and versatile speaker for the price. It’s primary purpose is clearly to use with tvs which typically have rather weedy audio reproduction (usually the almost inevitable result of flat panel screens not being able to house decent-sized speakers). Actually that’s not always the case: my sony bravia sounds fine as it is, however the tv i use for gaming (an led toshiba) has very thin sound – so much so that i had rigged up a creative 5. 1 surround sound system to it to compensate. Whilst this was a huge improvement (producing thunderous bass yet still managing to produce a reasonably balanced sound throughout the range) it was still – like all similar systems – saddled with the reams of unsightly cabling that they require, worse, even though the surround sound effect was excellent when the speakers were correctly positioned, the practicalities of arranging them this way often prohibited this (so they were generally position near or to the front of the tv hence significantly diminishing this effect). Anyway, to cut a long story short i set up the konig sound bar to compare and contrast it with my existing 5. I wasn’t expecting much but i was hoping that if it was anywhere near the quality of the creative audio i might well consign all the separate speakers and wiring to the loft (or find a good home for it elsewhere). In short the sound the konig produces in view of its dimensions is excellent.

This has really good sound quality and can go very very loud. This has really good sound quality and can go very very loud. It took me a little while to work out which bit of cable to plug into which input socket on the tv. Well actually i had to get someone to help me. But they did it very easily. I love it now it is working. It doesn’t look intrusive, intact you can hardly tell that it is there until it springs to life. Very glad i had the chance to try this.

Always poo-pooed the idea of a soundbar. Either go with the speakers with your tv or a full blown surround av system. You won’t get any surround effects or a decent bass punch. I didn’t know how anaemic my tv audio sounded before the könig. The soundbar itself is a glossy black, about 32 inches long. It’s not that much of a dust magnet and feels well made. The box contains a wall bracket so you can mount it under your tv if you have that setup, and a selection of audio and video cables for all the connections on the soundbar (very helpful). There are instructions, but although they’re extremely basic, it’s not difficult to work out. On the right end there are four buttons for power, volume up/down and audio select. The remote has more buttons, but there’s no lights / display on it to show what you’ve chosen or sound level. On the soundbar itself there are lights to show what input you’ve chosen and a red led for power. An on/off switch rounds out controls on the back, so you can switch it fully off. In use, the difference in sound quality compare to just the tv was astonishing.

Ordered yesterday arrived today. It was purchased as a christmas gift for my husband and i thought it ought to be tested to make sure it worked. It will be staying put in front of the tvthe sound from the tv is great but i hadn’t banked on the great bluetooth sound from my ipod. I have put it through its paces with a range of genres and i love it. Pop, classical, opera and jazz all sounded fantastic. Hubby tried to claim ownership of the remote put i pointed out it was a christmas pressie and he can have control of it as of christmas day. I would recommend it as a booster to your tv sound or as a standalone speaker for bluetooth devices. Yes it is substantial in size, but it is a solid and robust piece of kit and i am more then happy with it for the price.

Most users seem (quite fairly, i suppose) to be using this with a television. Personally, the only tv i have access to is in the communal area of my student house, so that’s not happening. Before this, i had an amazonbasics bluetooth speaker that i use with my phone and, more recently, sony smartwatch 3 to listen to music while at home. Hardly a fair comparison, i know, but that is the only comparison i can make. Unsurprisingly, this is incredible next to the amazon model. It’s probably overkill for my needs, but if you want something really crisp and frankly, awesome sounding, this is the soundbar to get. By comparison, other manufacturers seem to be charging a lot more for the same kind of quality. To me, this was an unknown brand and it’s worth remembering that a lot of the brands we as consumers know about and buy from have spent a lot on marketing to get that mindshare. That cost is built in to their products.

A quality and value solution to poor tv sound. I recently installed a comparable soundbar from a major tv manufacturer for my parents and was therefore pleased to try this version from konig for comparison. This hav sb-500 soundbar is a single piece unit measuring 80cm x 9cm x 8. 5 cm and has 4 upper/mid-range units with 2 sub-woofers delivering up to 60w rms. The sb-500 does not have a separate sub-woofer box or satellite units. The up side of this approach is there’s no satellite speakers to find room for and cables to trail. To me, this is the sort of solution that will make good the inevitably tinny sound from today’s wafer thin tvs but stops short of going down the route of a home theatre installation. The soundbar looks well-made and is finished in piano black with a black mesh at the front through which you can glimpse the profile of the driver units etc. Its low profile design isn’t too intrusive and its rubber feet make sure it remains in position. The first thing that is encouraging is that in the box you get everything that you actually need to get going – the soundbar, a power cable, remote (with 2 aaa batteries), an optical spdif cable, audio cable, rca cable, wall mount plus mounting screws etc.
