Gear Of The Year: Best soundbar of 2021

As TV screens get thinner, we look to soundbars to restore the cinematic boom in our viewing experience – this one was the best of 2021.

Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar

WINNER: Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar

Price: £ 2,199.00
Contact: Sennheiser

Sennheiser’s Ambeo goes big at home, and if you’ve wondered how capable a single soundbar can be at delivering a surround sound experience, here’s the benchmark.

13 speakers help it to support a wide frequency range of 30 Hz to 20 kHz (-3 dB) which will give you a good enough bass performance without the need for a separate sub – though there’s the option to add one if you want to.

If you have the cash to splash on a heavy-duty unit but not the space for a big setup with lots of speakers dotted around your living room, then it really is hard to fault the Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar.
