    Sound bars ? 17th Oct 16 at 1:53 PM
    i bought a 32" Sony TV back in the summer and I am quite happy with it , but the sound isn't that loud. The chap in the shop said I would probably need a 'sound bar' and tried to sell me one at 180 odd bearing in mind that the TV was 290 that seemed a bit excessive . I know very little about these things so would appreciate any ideas about how much I should have to pay for one of these I live in a fairly small cottage and my sitting room is about 12x14 so basically I just want to be able to perhaps have it a little bit louder than I get at the moment.The salesman said if I turn it up too much I will 'blow' the TVs existing speakers Any advice chums would be welcome

    Just need to make it a little louder, as at the moment I have the subtitles on ,more so in the evening so I don't disturb my neighbours, I am a little deaf in one ear and if the music soundtrack is on I find it difficult to hear the dialogue

    If your tv is connected to a set top box just check that the volume on this isn't turned down.
