Best soundbar for 2021: Yamaha, Klipsch, Vizio, Sonos and more

 

While we really like the Roku Smart Soundbar, the Roku Streambar does essentially the same job for $50 less. With a full-fledged 4K HDR Roku streamer built in and a single voice remote controlling everything.

Roku Streambar review

 

This streamer-cum-soundbar represents very good value

Direct, well-projected sound ; Great feature list ; Can go loud

Doesn't sound cinematic

The Roku Streambar is not quite a soundbar, but it is a talented audio booster with 4K HDR streaming built-in

Roku Streambar Review

 

Crisp, clear audio ; Works as a 4K media streamer ; Small size is easier to place under a TV than a full-size soundbar

Weak bass ; No Dolby Vision

The Roku Streambar is a small soundbar that makes for a big improvement over your TV's built-in speakers, and it doubles as a 4K media streamer.

Roku Streambar review

 

The Roku Streambar is an affordable two-in-one solution for great 4K/HDR streaming and solid sound quality.

Full, clear sound Bluetooth connectivity 4K/HDR streaming Easy to setup and use

No Dolby Vision or Atmos Bass is weak Can't program the remote No audio jack on the remote

The Roku Streambar easily adds good sound to any TV along with Roku’s well-known streaming interface and ridiculously simple setup. This versatile compact soundbar sells for $130 /£130, making it an excellent way to upgrade without having to re-arrange...

Roku Streambar review: A one-box upgrade

 

Streaming skills with an audio boost.

Loads of streaming services ; Everything you need in the boost ; Good sound for the size

No Ethernet connection ; No Dolby Vision

This soundbar slots into a position where its offering is somewhat unique: it kills two birds with one stone, boosting audio performance without costing a lot of money, while providing access to one of the most complete streaming platforms available.

Roku Streambar Review

 

The Roku Streambar is a budget-level 2.0 setup. This impressively small soundbar allows you to access different streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu in one ...

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, and Wi-Fi compatible. Dialogue enhancement feature available. Four EQ presets available.

Poor surrounds performance. Doesn't get very loud. Really lacking low-bass. No room correction.

The Roku Streambar is disappointing for mixed use. Its sound profile really lacks low-bass. It also struggles to get loud and doesn't support Atmos content. Its surrounds performance is bad, as it has to downmix surround content into stereo. However,...

Roku Streambar review: Powerful sound and 4K streaming in one neat package

 

This affordable soundbar/streamer is arguably the simplest way to improve your home video and audio at the same time

4K HDR streaming ; Great, room-filling sound ; Roku is still the best streaming platform

No eARC support ; No Dolby Vision or HDR10+

For anyone looking to improve their streaming experience and enjoy better audio without breaking the bank, the Roku Streambar is the obvious solution. It’s an all-in-one fix, adding great sound and a practically unlimited library of apps for only £130...

Roku Streambar review: A very good streamer inside a pretty good soundbar

 

There are better soundbars at this price, but none that incorporate a quality media streamer.

A pretty good soundbar integrated with a very good media streamer ; Excellent remote control, with support for voice ; Can be upgraded with a wireless subwoofer and surround speakers ; Can also stream content from a NAS box or USB drive

Not as good as a speaker as it is a streamer ; A little weak on bass response ; No Dolby Vision support

If you’re in the market for both a media streamer and a soundbar, but you’re working with a tight budget, the Roku Streambar is excellent on the first count and very good on the second. It’s not quite as good at streaming as the Roku Ultra (which...
