Good for the cost
Works OK, Price was OK & Sounds OK too,
For those expecting $500 buck sound, this soundbar is not for you, Go buy a $500 dollar one.
For those just wanting a better sound than your TV speakers then this might be for you. It sounds better than my 2020 65" Samsung TU8000 speakers by miles. I have had no issues & I have had it for 6 months or so.
And for the person who said in their review that before their purchase they were spectacle about the purchase , maybe you read the add wrong & need to get a new set of skepticals.

2.1 Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer
A great sound system for the price. If you interested to have the sound effect of a movie while watching one this is what this sound system does. Connected my phone to the Bluetooth and it gave excellent sound as well. Just remember it needs to be within a certain distance nor else the Bluetooth connection drops. I was able to go safely one room away before I could hear the music dropping out.

Provisionally, great (awaiting longevity)
It's been a painful journey here.
I've got an Aldi non-smart TV through which I could hear bugga-all. About a year ago I bought the Aldi Soundbar that splits into two vertical cylindrical speakers. That was aesthetically elegant and convenient for the tight corner it all needs to fit into. But the remote was beyond useless and on all settings the bass was absurdly over-emphatic. Unlistenable. Also, cust serv said it couldn't receive digital radio, which was the third deal-breaker.
Fast forward to now. This one's just a bar; no shape morphing....

Don’t always believe what you read!
I purchased this after reading the reviews, I thought what’s the worse that’s going to happen, it’s no good I’ll return it ! Best decision I made it’s absolutely brilliant we smash it all the time and it always performs. Can’t wait until they return, I’m buying another this was retailing for $129 has a built it subwoofer excellent sound even better than I imagined it to be especially for the price.

It must be cheap for a reason. Very disappointed with this product.
Not very happy with this product I have tried everything I can & I’m not getting what I want. Just the same has it was before just that the volume comes out the Soundbar

Very happy....especially for the cheap price!
Needed a sound bar for an 60" tv for a 2.4 X 3.5m room in it's new home after a renovation. We were sick of the echo from the tv speakers in the new room. This cheap unit from ALDI has made such a difference. The whole watching tv in this room is now a pleasure.

Not Worth the Money in the Long Term
The sound was better than what was produced from the speakers on my LG TV but after 2 1/2 years the bass speaker has stopped. Had I spent $100 more I would have had a better more reliable brand. Now I am going to have to donate it to landfill
Purchased for $150.00.
Crap cheap product
Cheap product that only lasted 13 months then the speaker packed up. I got what I paid for. I should have bought a better more expensive brand that would have lasted. I wouldn’t touch other electrical items of the brand like their TV.

Great sound , dynamic bass and great virtual effects.
Am so happy with my purchase, excellent product that delivers way beyond my expectations. Bass is powerful and articulated,top end is clear with a wonderful soundstage. This product has exceeded my every expectation. 5 stars

ALDI Soundbar excellent performance, awesome value: Bauhn Soundmax Soundbar USMSB-1117
This soundbar is awesome value. The music it produces is punchy, well defined, airy with great acoustics and separation. A must buy! Bought on 13JUN20 for $169 at ALDI. I use it with Airplay and HDMI ARC on my 55" QLED HDTV. Even though it is a soundbar I am mostly using it for just playing music and have re-discovered my old favourite tunes. I cannot fault it. Highly recommended.
The auto turn off feature is simply stupid. Especially when the remote needs to be within 1 metre of the speaker to pick it up. If you have auto turn off you also need auto turn on. My family struggles with this all the time. Also the return to default settings when it does is not good. I would not recommend this sound bar. I have a bauhn tv as well they don't have anywhere to mount the speaker on the tv.

Making popping noise just after 1 year
I had bought Bauhn 2.0 Premium Bluetooth Soundbar with Enhansed Bass from ALDI store. I had it connected to my Bauhn smart TV using optical cable.
While in operation it suddenly starting producing popping noise (similar to hammering soind).
I switched it off completely and restarted the soundbar without any improvement. I even tried using other inputs mode: coaxial, bluetooth, AUX, USB drive. In all mode it is still producing the knocking sound. After leaving it on for sometime, it sometimes do produce normal output sound but again after few seconds the popping noise starts.Faulty substandard product. Do not buy

Total Garbage: I took it back
I didn't have high expectations for this soundbar, but even so, the sound was dreadful.
The main reason for getting a soundbar is that it will provide better sound than the TV's inbuilt speakers. In our case, every member of our family unanimously agreed that the TV's inbuilt speakers had superior sound to the soundbar. I took it back for a refund. Would not recommend.

Stopped working after only a few months
This product was never all that great with mediocre sound quality, but the speakers suddenly stopped working. No sound. Checked all the connections, but to no avail. Don't buy this!

Not worth it.
This unit is very easy to set up and works really well connected HDMI-ARC as you can then control the volume, mute and on-off with your TV remote.
BUT the standard sound setting is terrible as voices are muffled. You must use the supplied remote or buttons on the bar itself to change to the voice mode then its not too bad however when you turn it off it loses the setting so when u power up again you need to go thru the setup again.
Another issue is volume - there is simply not sufficient for an average size room ie 4m x 5m with 2.5m ceiling. The TV (Samsung 34 inch flat) in built speaker actually is louder and has clearer speech than this soundbar.
I recommend you look elsewhere

15 months old and now faulty
The sound bar was quite good for the price. Worked well for 15 months. Now out of warranty. Sound is scratchy and goes loud then soft without reason. At times hard to hear then deafening.
Purchased in July 2018.
I have had my sound bar and woofer about 2to 3 years. It has great sound quality and can get party loud without losing quality. I have recommended this product to friends and family. I connect only spotify to it.

Good for the price
I was a bit spectical after reading the reviews here, but still went ahead and bought the sound bar. I have to say it hasn't disappointed at all considering the price. The only down side is the tiny remote which we don't even use.

Brought as a gift. Works fine, great sound quality.
Looks great and easy set up. Fits well with tv. Easy to use.
The brand is good for the price. Good quality item

Questions & Answers
The remote for the soundbar not working , even with new battery , it has always been intermittent since I had it , ca barn replace the remote
@Martin_c, if the product is faulty, contact Aldi's supplier. If you believe it's only the remote, they will send out a replacement which they have done for me for other Aldi (Bauhn) products.
I'm unable to hear Netflix thru the soundbar. I have the TV although NOT HD channels. I'm using the supplied Opti cable. Any help out there please?
