Bose Solo 5 vs LG SL5Y

Bose Solo 5 review

There are 2.0 built-in channels. To add, this playbar has the power output of 100W. Especially to achieve a comfortable viewing of movies and TV programs, the manufacturer implemented a dialogue mode, thanks to which the listener can get the most distinct voices of the main characters of the film or show. A wide range of sound reproduction options with the ability to conveniently adjust the bass thanks to a separate button offers a functional remote control. The universal remote control included in the acoustics package also allows you to conveniently interact with a TV and Blu-ray player. Bose Solo 5

LG SL5Y review

The total output power of the soundbar is 180 watts. There are 2.1 channels. The LG SL5Y soundbar with DTS Virtual:X technology creates sound with an impressive presence effect. With three front speakers and a subwoofer, DTS technology makes the presence effect even more tangible, and the sound envelops you from all sides. Soundbar LG SL5Y has various input connectors and additional options such as HDMI, optical cable and Bluetooth. I control with a smartphone. The subwoofer is wireless, by the way, it supports many different formats. You can say it is universal, but this is a big plus. The power of the speakers is impressive. It has a convenient digital optical input. The sound of the speakers envelops from all sides, creating the effect of presence. I like everything from design to sound in it. LG SL5Y
