I don't see why not. Many people don't have every TV in their home attached to an AV or hi-fi system.mightyquin said:
I agree - I have mentioned this option to my Dad who watches films in a bedroom - not sure my mother would let him install a 5.1 speaker set-up - so a soundbase maybe the best compromise.chebby said:I don't see why not.

Similarly I don't have every radio in the house playing through it's own hi-fi system. (I use a couple of decent Ruark portables outside of the living room.)
A smaller TV in a bedroom or spare room or conservatory or study could well benefit from a compact solution like a soundbase to improve it's sound.
In which case, isn't the latest issue a bit wide of the mark? Or is it part of the marketing, d'you think?mightyquin said:They seem to me to be a marketing gimmick, although if you just want a bit better sound quality from your telly then I guess they offer a neat solution as the TV sits on top and there's not too many wires.
I can't really see anyone who buys What Hifi magazine buying a soundbase though.
Yep. Two sets of these (left and right), actively driven too...mmg said:High-end brands like B&O and Loewe still have their speakers in the front, so they don't need a separate soundbar or soundbase.
