What is the Best Bluetooth Soundbar for Me?

Due to their sleek design and ergonomic space saving capabilities, the go to here is definitely a soundbar. While these can sometimes break the bank, we got our hands on this AV Link Bluetooth Soundbar to prove that a great soundbar doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Grab some snacks, some mates and your football shirts – it’s time to live the game from your living room!

Not Just a TV Soundbar

Fresh out of the box the first thing we notice is how light the soundbar is. There’s not too much bulk to it meaning it slots nicely under your TV. Don’t despair if you have a wall mounted TV as the soundbar can also be mounted using the screws provided. The speaker itself is hassle free to set up (literally plug in and go), with minimal fuss connecting up any device through either the AUX in, TV line in, USB or Bluetooth. The speaker itself delivers crisp and clear immersive audio with an exceptional volume range for its size. When connected up to Bluetooth we did find it necessary to have a play around with the EQ to find our preferred sound (similar to the AV Link Headphones), however this is easily done via the remote. After giving the speaker a good road testing we were pretty amazed by the audio quality that it delivered, proving you get a lot of bang for your buck from this little bar.

Skinny On the Outside, Beefy On the Inside

Whether it’s hooked up to a gaming rig or coupled with the England vs Tunisia game, the AV Link Bluetooth soundbar makes the perfect addition to your set up to fully immerse you in all of the action right there in your living room. Once the actions over, switch back to the Bluetooth input (using the remote provided) so you can blast out your favourite party playlist or this football classic through the wireless speaker. It’s clear that practicality and functionality were both taken into consideration here. The end result; a cracking soundbar at an even better price!

The Verdict: A Cheap Soundbar That Doesn’t Compromise Quality

Summer is fast approaching and the World Cup is nearly upon us. We know it’s difficult to nip out to Russia for the group stages, but why not immerse yourself in the action right there in your own home? Grab the AV: Link soundbar, a couple of mates and some light refreshments, and you’ll have the next best thing to the Luzhniki Stadium! Not a football fan? This is the best soundbar to produce crystal clear audio quality when watching films or gaming. For the price of the soundbar it’s well worth the money and definitely gives the big boys a fair fight!

*pssssst ladies! Let’s not forget, Love Island 2018 is also back at the same time as this year’s World Cup so we’re sure you’ll be able to get some use out of this one too!
