Upgrading your TV sound is not a really cheap solution. If you want to have great sound on your TV, you must decide how much money you want to spend. If you are thinking at approximately 400 dollars, than probably the best solution for you is a sound bar. If you want to spend a little more, let’s say 500 dollars, well, then you can buy a receiver and inexpensive 5.1 speaker set, capable to bring a better sound.
At 250 dollars, Denon AVR-S500BT can be bought for an affordable price for anyone who wants a great sound in the living room. At this price, most models have the same features, but Denon comes with a couple of features that competitors don’t have. We are talking about 4K compatibility and Bluetooth. Talking about the sound, it is pretty good for the price, and much better than any receivers costing more. Denon AVR-S500BT comes with some great features and impressive value that can make it one of the greatest quality budget home theater system.
When you hear “budget”, you will think at a home theater system that doesn’t have a great design or it’s made of some bad materials. Well, this is not the case for Denon’s. This home theater system looks more expensive than it is and it also has some great features. Most of these systems come with a flip-down panel with the purpose to hide the ports and buttons on the unit’s fascia. Denon doesn’t have this panel, but it manages to look clean and the buttons are really useful. The menu system is simple, featuring a white text on a black background and a blue highlight. It is quite nice and everything is easy to find. Its remote is filled with buttons, but at least it is not hard to use, featuring dedicated source buttons. If you don’t like the remote, you can always opt for a universal remote, making your task much easier.
This home theater system is a 5.2 channel receiver which delivers 70W per channel. The front-mounted USB port will decode WMA and MP3 audio tracks and the Bluetooth connectivity will allow you to put any audio service or local file right from your phone or tablet.
