At some settings there is noise in the background. It also occasionally refuses to give any output at allwhen it works, it has better sound than the tv.

Great value for money and a worthy 5 stars. We have a tv that’s getting on a bit and the sound was not up to the type required for modern films. So, when given the opportunity to try this sound bar, i jumped at the chance. * it has a 60w total music output* this is a six-speaker (2 x bass reflex, 4 treble) soundbar to connect tvs or receivers* the aux input can be connected to smartphones, tablets or notebooks to serve as a stand alone component – i play and record my own music and the sound reproduction from an ipod through this system is phenominal* there is a separate on/off switch if you want to save power when the system is not in use, or you can set it to standby mode using the remote. * remote control & user guide (unfortunately not that detailed)* it includes these cables: aux, optical, aux to rca, and both an eu & uk power cable* the sizes are 80 x 9 x 8. 5 cm and it weighs in at 3 kgthe hand set controls the amount of both bass and treble required separately, as well as volume. It also includes three settings – music; movie; late-night (lowers the bass levels as well as the volume)i must admit that i’ve heard sound bars that almost blow out the windows when on full power. This is not in that category, but for the normal sized house, this is a great addition to the entertainment room, be that lounge, living room, bedroom or wherever. Great value for money and a worthy 5 stars.

If you’re spending a lot on a new tv, spending a little on improving the sound makes sense. I’m please with this purchase. I wanted a soundbar roughly this size with an optical input, so i took a chance despite it not having too many reviews (i think about 30 when i bought it). My tv had okay-ish sound but lacked ‘oomph’, so i wanted to get something that could add a bit more bass and generally provide better quality audio. The difference is noticeable. It’s not going to cut it for audiophiles, but it’s £65, so audiophiles aren’t going to be buying this. Basically, i just spent £780 on a nice new tv. I figured that i might as well spend a fraction of that (the aforementioned £65) bringing the sound up to par. Here are the specifications for the KÖNIG König Piano Soundbar –:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Six-speaker soundbar to connect TVs or receivers and provide the ultimate home cinema experience
  • The AUX input can be connected to smartphones, tablets or notebooks to serve as a stand alone component
  • Remote Control & User Guide
  • Cables Included: AUX, Optical, AUX to RCA, EU/UK power cable, Connection: AUX 2x, Optical, Coaxial S/PDIF

I was delighted to have had the chance to try this soundbar after our old speakers finally died after several years of faithful service. However, i did have doubts because the könig piano soundbar is considerably cheaper than our old kit and i worried about the quality. A few details before i give my verdict. This soundbar has 60w total output, has six speakers (two base reflex and four treble) and has an aux input which will allow you to connect to just about any sound-bearing gadget you have around the house. 5 cm, it will sit comfortably near or around your tv screen. Setting up may take a while, depending on what you intend to do with it but once up and running this little gem is a cracker. The sound that comes out of it is fantastic, with the bass and treble handled very well. The sound quality does not quite rival that of our old and more expensive speaker system but i did not expect a soundbar in the ‘budget’ bracket to give such an impressive performance.

This is the best thing we have bought in a long time dose everything it said on the pkt.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent, low cost & subtle way to boost your home cinema set-up
  • For the money its a cracker
  • Good bit of kit – don’t settle on your telly’s inbuilt sound – you don’t know what you’re missing!

If you dont have a lot of devices to connect then this is a great choice for its price. Tried this through my ps4 running netflix and found the sound to be a definite improvement over my tv speakers. The night time mode worked well at thinning out the background and emphasising the voices so as to make it less disturbing for those trying to sleep. The only negative i have with this is the connection options on the back seem a little limited but for the price point this can be overlooked somewhat. If you dont have a lot of devices to connect then this is a great choice for its price.

This soundbar didn’t come with any clear instructions and i didn’t manage to connect it to my television, despite trying various methods but i did manage to connect it to my laptop and mounted it on the wall. The sound is very good and the bass is particularly impressive, much better than i thought it would be. Well worth buying but just wished i could have connected it to my t. Does anyone know if you can download an instruction book for it?. Other people don’t seem to have this problem, so maybe it’s just me.

Limited presets and no user presets makes this far less than ideal but for the price. . Fiddly setup – no user presets. Limited in-built presets and bass set way too high on all of them. Doesn’t like my tv and remote interferes with tv. Can’t really recommend this to others. But you get what you pay for.

The sound bar provides a much better experience than the standard speakers built into many flatscreen. The sound bar provides a much better experience than the standard speakers built into many flatscreen tvs one the market. It is easy to set up and the remote control is simple to use. The downside is that the ir system has some issues. I bought this for my father who has an lg tv, when he uses the lg remote control, certain button presses will cut the sound of the sound bar. He has to quickly turn the sound bar off and on again to have the sound back on. It’s a minor inconvenience which really shouldn’t be there. Luckily, the sound quality makes this item worth keeping.

Sound from speakers has now become. Sound from speakers has now become distorted and impossible to use. At price of sound bar will not be worth repairing when sound bar is in use you can not tell how high the volume is. Would not buy again sorry to say.

Lovely piece of kit, i didn’t buy it to blow down walls as i just wanted to enhance tv sound and this does it superbly.

Good but faulty one sent, had replacement, and now other visual issues,. This was brought in advance a week early and given a week later to someone as a birthday present. From the onset it looked impressive and as a cheaper version of a similar soundbar i know. It had many positive features and things included. Unfortunately it kept turning it self off, as if there was a short. For example it would work for 10-15 minutes and then would turn off constantly. I had to calk amazon and ask for a replacement. They did a quick turn round, collecting the faulty one and sending anothert , but the replacement has a dent and a small patch of the paint work missing. I wasn’t happy at all, but this one appears to work after setting it up again for the person it was intended for at there home. I will be contacting amazon as not completely convinced it is brand new.

And the sound quality is great. I’m using this to supplement my tv in my room which i mainly use for gaming, and the sound quality is great. Obviously, it’s not a wall shaking speaker, but the surround sound is immersive and good quality. The set up was very easy and intuitive. It is long than i had expected, but that was no problem. It even came with a wall mount if i wanted. Simple but great, with three modes for different purposes.

I got this last week and i’m seriously impressed so far. With inputs for optical (and a free toslink cable), coax, and 2 aux inputs (and another free cable), it was easy to connect to my tv, bluray and youview. Not massively loud, but then it doesn’t have to be, it adds bass and depth to the otherwise tinny tv audio. There are settings for movie (surround sound of sorts), music (not bad) and nightime (takes down the bass), all of which make it quite versatile. Very pleased that i bought it at such a reasonable price.

Very surprised by the quality of the sound for the price, yes its not bluetooth or have a separate booming bass, but for day to day tv watching on a modern slim set it enhances the sound no end, great value for money. It has the added bonus of a remote control to which you can adjust the bass and treble, not just preset, the night mode is also handy as it drops the bass down completely. You can spends hundreds on a sound bar, where do you draw the line, for everyday use its ideal, and complete, all connection leads are in the box just plug in and use. *********update*********have since bought another as a gift for my father in law, that is how happy i have been with the performance of my first one, on a side note however this one came from a different supplier and was posted fully wrapped in a plastic bag which protected the box, ideal as was a gift, my original one just had a postage label slapped on the outer of the items original box. Well done carmarthen cameras.

Made a massive difference to my 50″ panasonic vierra viewing experiences. Tip – don’t forget to remove the small clear tips from the ends of the optical cable.
