It can be a bit contradictory, but something that is smaller does not have to sound less strong or of lower quality. However, space is something very precious no matter what time we are in. If we can make the soundbar half full, that is something we will appreciate. For that reason we wanted leave you with this selection of compact sound bars, with stereo audio and with technical features very up to par.
Choosing a sound bar
As with any gadget, choosing a soundbar may not be an easy task. The market is full of makes and models. In addition to its sound performance, nowadays purely aesthetic aspects are taken into account, since in most cases they are kept fully visible, in watertight such as the living room. With the list that we show you below, the least of your worries will be the space, so you should take more into account this section of the design, the technical performance according to the space where it is going to be put and of course the price.
Another aspect that we can take into account is its connectivity. Our television may not have Bluetooth, but the soundbar is only compatible with this technology. Fortunately, the vast majority continue to integrate other options like 3.5mm auxiliary input connection. If we intend to hang the sound bar on a wall near the television, it is also convenient to make sure that the product has this option, although it is also usually present in the vast majority. However, the objective of the compact bars is more aimed at a low position, in front of the TV.
