      The Pioneer SBX-500 is a unique amplfier that showcases its superb, portable design which gives you its elegant looks and has 2 hidden subwoofers in the back. It also features a easy to display There’s an ARC-compatible HDMI output, two optical digital inputs, an Ethernet port and a socket for the IR extender. Add these to the 3.5mm input and USB on the front and your all set to play those movies. The main purpose of this device isn't sound though. It is a multipurpose Internet tool, that allows you to use your Wifi to stream the latest videos on Netflix and listen to the latest music like pandora, or if you are really a audiophile I would choose Tidal instead of all the others because Tidal is the only company that stream lossless audio .. the musical quality is not lost. I have personally tested it with movies such as avatar, and the matrix trilogys and the sound quality is impeccable, its like your really there sitting in a movie theater, the sound is really that good. The price though is a little high at 249 euros, you could get a little bit more bang for your buck if you were to shop around.. I would definitely recommend this product..

      Advantages

      • connectivity
      • "great sound"

      Disadvantages

      Great product and connectivity

      I bought it since years ago for my birthday ( thirty years old).
      It certainly is a huge improvement of existing sound that comes out of my LG 47 inch smart Tv (although to be fair to LG,the tv's sound is not as bad as some) My main purpose to purchase this soundbar was for its good connectivity ie bluetooth to other family gadgets like I-Pads and the like and the fact the Tv does not need to be on at all for the soundbar to function with the other gadgets ect. The only slight niggle is if you want to change any functions of the soundbar itself (other than basic volume and connection inputs) you really need the Tv on to see any detailed changes you want to make to the soundbar settings. Connection directly to a router via cable or wireless works without any problem. If you are a novice then its also no problem,no complicated set-up procedure.
      Sound wise,well its not as good as a real 5.1 surround set up, but the sound that comes out of the speaker is robust,solid and clear. It is located in a fairly large lounge/diner room and fills the room with no problem. The soundbar lenght wise is about 46 inches,so compliments my LG Tv at 47 inch perfect.
      There is no problem on this sound bar, very robut and solid one. you can purchase it without a doubt, don't care about this. You can use it with a large widescreen TV.

      Advantages

      • "Great value for the money"

      Disadvantages

      • "No HDMI input"

      Great option for the price

      The Pioneer SBX-N500 it's a speaker bar with network, direct wi fi, DLNA streaming, bluetooth and integrated twin subwoofers, so it'd ideal if you don't have much space available or you just hate seeing a subwoofer lying there on the ground.
      So, even if you have the most expensive tv there is, you will still feel a big improvement and you will like your movies better.
      It can also be used for your music stored on your i-Phone, i-Pad or a USB stick, even if the tv it's turned off.
      It's also wall mountable, if you don't want to put it on a table.
      With Miracast program you can mirror files like pictures, videos, music, directly to your tv from your smartphone, laptop, tablet.
      Speaking of smartphone, Pioneer has an application called "ControlApp" which transform your smartphone in a powerful remote control able to control not only this sound bar but any compatible Pioneer product.
      It comes with a optical digital audio cable, remote control and a IR cable.
      Lenghth of the soundbar it's around 46 inches.
      The impedance of the SBX-N500 it's 4Ω. The weight also, around 10 lbs., denote a good indication about the sound quality.
      It's performance can't be perfect, because that soundbar doesn't exist and will never do, but it's still a good improvement over the tiny little speakers of the tv.
      As now you can find this soundbat at a very good price, it's a very good moment to buy it because it's a great option for every budget.

      Advantages

      • " room-filling sound"
      • Loud
      • "Discreet design"
      • "Superb feature list"

      Disadvantages

      • "Some sound modes only accessible onscreen"
      • "Could be more composed at loud volumes "
      • "No HDMI inputs"

      Good ¨Product

      The SBX-N500 is a good-looking and reassuringly robust unit. Its black plastic bodywork with a grey metal speaker grille is classy yet discreet, designed to sit on your TV stand without drawing undue attention. The gently angled front face is a nice touch.

      In the middle of the speaker grille is an LED display panel, either side of which is a 3.5mm minijack input and a USB port for on-the-fly media playback. The LED clearly displays selected inputs and volume levels, while a row of lights just above the panel indicates which sound modes are selected. For up-close control, a row of buttons runs along the top edge, offering volume, input selection and power. It’s all very clear and straightforward

      loud.clear sound.

      At 900mm wide, the SBX-N500 is a little small for TVs over 50 inches – it looks best in front of a 40 or 46in set. When placing the unit on a TV stand, you can make it 20cm higher by fitting the supplied feet to the bottom.

      If the Pioneer blocks your TV’s the infrared receiver, the SBX-N500 features a pair of built-in IR repeaters that fire commands from the back. But if that doesn't work for you, there’s an IR sensor cable in the box that can be placed in a more suitable location. If your TV is wall-mounted, you can hang the Pioneer on a pair of screws using the holes on the back.
