Rich basses are not only essential for the home cinema experience in current streaming hits like “Echoes”. Almost everything on Netflix, Disney+ and Co. is even better with bass. Two Philips soundbars offer just the right package and are currently heavily discounted on Amazon.
Two Philips soundbars stand out from the mass of deals in the September sale on Amazon. The Philips TAB8505/10 soundbar with subwoofer is currently available for less than €200. The compact sound miracle has never been cheaper. Here you get a 200 watt soundbar that stands out visually from the black models of most manufacturers and offers a surprising number of connection options.

The soundbar is set up with the associated smartphone apps. Yes, there are two apps that you have to install. Once the setting is done, you can look forward to a good sound. The Philips soundbar unfolds its full potential, especially with feature films. The bass in particular is convincing. Note, however, that the subwoofer should not be placed too far from the soundbar, otherwise the wireless connection will become unstable.
The TAB8405/10 is a little cheaper than the TAB8505/10, which is already on sale at Amazon for just under €185. It differs only in color from the sister model. Otherwise you get a wireless subwoofer and many connection options. The dark gray version is also a real eye-catcher thanks to its sloping front.

As with the 8505, the 8405 also shows its strengths in film operations. Thanks to Dolby Atmos support, the sounds are always rich and bass-heavy. And that despite the relatively space-saving design. You can also use the soundbar as a music player thanks to Bluetooth.
