Philips HTL1520B 2.1 Channel Soundbar & Subwoofer

The Amazon reviews are… suspicious. ALL of the old ones are nothing but raves while ALL of the new ones are absolutely dreadful. Did something on this soundbar change in the last 2 years for such dreadful reviews?

I think they have different models under the same listing. I bought this last time and didn’t have high expectations for $60. It’s decent, have it hooked up to an Apple TV via Bluetooth. Other than an occasional connection drop it has been fine. Bass not overwhelming but present if you’re looking for it.

Overall not a bad $60 if you want some extra audio clarity. Basic model, one BT connection, three audio modes, no Atmos, 5.1 etc. Pretty straightforward. Im glad I only spent $60 considering prices for sound bars can go up to $800+. I feel I could be just as whelmed if I spent triple and it satisfied my desire to have one. YMMV
