One of the easiest ways to improve the sound of movie and TV shows in your home is to get a sound bar like the one from Toshiba we are giving away in this contest. Sometimes a simple solution is all you need. And what could be simpler then plugging it into your televisions HDMI port for instant amazing audio. Sound bars are extremely popular because many people want to improve the sound from their television without having to fuss with multiple components of a full audio system. There are a huge variety of them, with a range of features. Enter this contest for a chance to win one, and check out the full range of sound bars at Best Buy.
How can you improve your home theatre
Here are a few things you can do to improve the movie or TV experience in your home:
- Buy a new TV: okay this is the most obvious and one that many people do at this time of year. Why now? Fall is when most new TV shows launch and when many of the big sporting seasons either begin (hockey, basketball, and my favourite, football) or, and I’m thinking of baseball especially, end and announce their champion.
- Improve the viewing experience around the TV: As Shelly discusses in the article that I linked to here, with the TV as the hub, the rest of the room can be enhanced in many ways to improve your home theatre. You could mount the TV, get amazing home theatre seating, or add some smart lighting. Or perhaps a new popcorn machine is all you need in your home!
- Boost the audio: some televisions produce pretty good sound on their own, but amazing sound often requires add-on speakers.
Point number three in that list leads me to the important point of this article. You don’t need a degree in audio engineering to improve the sound in your home. Even the simplest audio solution, a sound bar, can make a huge difference. You’ll be amazed at the difference!
How to set up a sound bar in your home
Most sound bars are designed to set up quickly, usually with a single HDMI cable connected to the television and a power cable plugged into the electrical outlet. The Toshiba SBX-1020 is a great example of a simple audio enhancement for any TV watching situation. It’s quite small, to easily fit beneath most televisions. It’s a single component, so you aren’t concerned with placement of other components (like a subwoofer, for example). It’s also multi-functional, enabling you to also send audio to it from your mobile device over Bluetooth.
There are fancier sound bars with more built-in speakers and enhanced audio capabilities, even Dolby Atmos. Even those sound bars setup very easily though. When shopping for a sound bar, you should look at the range of options available within your price range and decide which model will best work in your home. For example, my living room has a high angled ceiling and Atmos just doesn’t work well. So, I’d focus on a sound bar without that feature. For my bedroom though, the Toshiba prize offered in this contest would be perfect!

the TOSHIBA SBX -1020 sound bar would add a lot more quality sound to our TV
I could really use some good bluetooth headphones as i am hard of hearing and do not like to have to turn to the tv up so i can hear as it blasts everyone else out of the room. that would really make everyones movie and TV watching experience better.
I’m definitely missing a sub woofer but have held out living in an apartment and respecting my neighbors. Wish I could still get a 3d tv but would settle on upgrading my 15 year old 1080p tv to any of the new oled 4k-8k tvs.
This would be an amazing addition to pour movie night. The sound would be amazing.
My elderly Parents are getting hard of hearing and this would be ideal for them !
