Home theaters tend to be expensive. First of all, you need to have the space to be able to accommodate the home theater equipment. You also need a large-screen HDTV for a crystal-clear picture and video delivery. However, the problem with HDTVs today is that the thinner they get, the tinier their sound delivery is. There is no real feeling to it; there is no depth in the delivery of audio. This is where sound bars come in. Unlike large bulky surround sound systems before, these technological wonders offer you both price and space without compromising the delivery of sound. There are actually plenty of systems out there, so it’s a bit hard looking for the right one for you in the budget soundbar bracket. So, why not start with the RCA RTS735E Home Theater Sound Bar.
Enclosed in a handsome, piano-black finish, this sound bar is actually one of the more attractive gadgets in the market. It’s definitely not an eyesore, and with its dimensions of 33.2” in length, 5.25” in height and 6.5” in depth, it doesn’t block the view when placed in front of your television. This lightweight sound bar at 4.3 pounds can also be placed either freestanding on the television table or, for space- saving conditions, the removable stands can also be used to mount this audio system on the wall.
There are several features on this system that make it stand out from the competition. One that audiophiles with plenty of gadgets will like is that it has a line-in for an Apple iPod, iPhone or iPad that allows you to listen to music from your devices. This line-in will also connect and play media from other devices that are 3.5mm-enabled. This system is easy to use and connect to your television thanks to the 2 sets of analog audio inputs. A remote control is also included in the set to allow you to adjust the specifications, such as those of the treble and bass, according to your preference without having to get off the couch.
The sound delivered from this audio device is actually more suitable for middle or smaller sized living areas as evidenced by its output wattage of 25 Watts. However, if you are planning to provide a better sound quality for your television, then this is the speaker for you. The impedance of 8 Ohms also ensures that you get a good output.
In conclusion, in terms of power, this beauty may not have much against some of its counterparts, but it is one of the better sound bars in the market for the price range. High-quality sound with style and an affordable price, this gem is highly recommended for those with small or medium living spaces.
