Sound bars have become the most popular way to improve your entertainment sound experience because they are reasonably inexpensive, simple to setup, and don’t take up much room.

Flat screen TV’s keep getting thinner, which makes for fantastic aesthetics, but makes it difficult to provide great sound. Tiny skinny speakers just can’t cut it! Although I am impressed that the sound is as good as it is, TV sound doesn’t create a very good entertainment experience. The best way to enhance that experience is with a surround sound system that will immerse you in the scene. The next best option is a sound bar – the sound won’t be quite as immersive as a surround system but it might fit your space better, is much simpler to set up, and can provide excellent sound. But if you can’t get it together for either of those options, another way to improve your sound experience is connect some stereo speakers to your TV. You won’t get the surround effects or possibly other great features like Bluetooth or WiFi streaming that you can get with those other systems, but you can still make the TV sound better.

At the top end of their line is the Harmony Ultimate, which has amazing capabilities – in fact more than the average person will likely need. Logitech just introduced welcome additions to their lineup with the Harmony Ultimate One and the Harmony Smart Keyboard. They are both priced much more favourably than the Harmony Ultimate but have everything you will likely need. I got a chance to test them both so here is my full report.
