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

- Verified purchase
Good entry level sound bar
Bought this soundbar in March 2019. Was easy to setup for Optical and Bluetooth. Worked flawlessly until August 2019. The disappointing part of this purchase was the burning hoops that had to be handled in order to get a replacement.
ASBWS 0719 (July) A box full of rubbish BUT 0919 (Sept) works.
I set the 0719 one up for TV. Achieved success only to find sound out of synch with picture also as you changed Channel it popped loudly and lost sound and had to be completely reset each time you changed channel. Help desk had little success with assistance so I returned it. Sound was better than TV sound when it worked
A few months later ALDI had another model -ASBWS 0919- 2.0 Premium Bluetooth Soundbar. $129. In view of the fact I could return it if it was as bad as the previous one - I took the risk. It works well on optical cable as I...
We stopped using this because of the sound and picture mismatch despite connecting it through all available modes. The sound seems to lag behind the picture on television. So we only use it to play music, which happens once in every few months.
Not bad for price.
Really needed a soundbar as our tv speakers were shocking. It has great sound for what it costs. Unfortunately we couldn't connect via HDMI so it's connected by optical so you lose some quality but it still better than tv.
Sometimes we have lag with the audio to video but it hardly happens just turn it on and off and it's then fine.
Piece of junk
Worst speaker I have ever bought . Connection is terrible and has alot of problems connecting . Had nothing but troubles with this speaker since I got it . Wish I never wasted my money
Purchased for $100.00.
Junk: I took it back
The optical input had a terrible lag behind the video. Analogue lagged less but didn't sound as good. I tried all the TV settings and could not correct it enough to matter.
After a couple of weeks the right speaker developed a vibration that was getting steadily worse so I took it back for a refund.
Good sound but drops out
I was very happy easy to set up with HDMI auto on/off and sound quality is great. But from new after about 10 minutes of use it continues to drop in and out between the woofer and eventually altogether. Have to restart tv/ soundbar in order to work properly again. But will eventually start dropping out again. Last night trying to watch a 3hr movie, it occured 4 times.

Auto turn off is infuriating
- cheap (July 2019, $129 AUD)
- relatively easy setkup
- decent look
- Auto turn off if there is not sound that it needs to output. This was annying enough when I was surfing Amazon Fire Stick of content BUT It ACTUALLY autoturned off during a movie 3 times!
- Lack of display, too hard to tell if it is on or not. Especially if speakers are on the floor - needs to be eye leve of you to see the little lights.
- Subwoofer was delayed when playing songs on youtube - might be a youtube thing.
- Subwoofer would sometimes get signal even though it was right next to main speakers.
Overall: I don't recomment. Returned the unit after about a week. The auto turning off turing movie was the last straw.
OK except for Sub Woofer Popping
OK for the price, when it was working via Spotify , but lately the sub woofer makes a loud POP, POP, Pop noise even before Spotify is played. If anyone knows has a solution please reply.
I love my sound bar so much, it has such great sound perfect for having a small party. Love it and can not live with out it! thanks :) x x

For $129 you can’t go wrong
Disappointment was my initial emotion when it came to this product.
But please, give it a chance. Set up was a breeze just plugged it in and it worked. At first there was a few problems with the Bluetooth connection to the subwoofer dropping out repeatedly but I persevered and this problem seems to have fixed itself. I have now been using it for several days and it is working perfectly. For $129 I don’t think you could do any better. I am definitely happy with my purchase.
Red light on soundbar keeps flashing, can’t seem to get it to work? Had only purchased this yesterday and it worked fine and left it on came back from work and it’s like this.. nothing in the manual says anything about a red flashing light on the sound bar?
Purchased in May 2019.
almost but not quite....
bought from aldi last week
setup worked fine
connected to samsung tv 7100 series
worked ok with optical cable.
did sub woofer test (see YouTube) and performed well. though no where near samsung n950 7.1.1.
tried HDMI arc but results were unsatisfactory.
when playing from s10 phone Bluetooth, unit paired ok but Bluetooth output faded in out for no reason. I given it a failure on this count.
went back to 2016 bauhn single sound bar, the original, connected via Bluetooth and worked perfectly!
so progress is backwards....

Good but with faults
When attaching it to a wall mounted Samsung TV with an optical cable the sound was improved however we experienced fade in and out that made it unacceptable. Selecting either of the two EQ options did not correct it and in fact we did not notice any discernible differences in the sound settings. It may have been an incompatibility with the TV perhaps but I will be returning it to Aldi.
better than I expected
People who have been disappointed/had problems seem more likely to write reviews, so I thought I should put something on the other side of the scale.
This sound bar is better than I expected it would be. I have a bit of hearing loss, which, despite hearing aids, means I have trouble making out what is being said on the TV. So my concern was good, clear sound, rather than lots of bass. I got this soundbar today and it is delivering in spades. I can understand every word. A huge improvement on the speakers in my (quite high-end Sony) TV. Excellent value.
Also, no problems setting up.
On the issue of durability, of course, it's too soon to say.
Very poor item all round - big disappointment from Aldi
Never had any problems with Aldi products previously. But this sound bar - dreadful!
Instructions are absolutely appalling - are not instructions - really just a list of items. WARNING - all the leads are VERY short! Barely 1 metre long, which makes any reasonable set up almost hopeless. Went out and bought a HDMI cable - still no luck. I spent nearly 3 hours following the so-called easy installation instructions - dreadful! Having no luck, I then paid a TV expert to assist with set up - even he was beat. Luckily, he only charged me a small fee...
Purchased in April 2019 at Queensland for $129.00.
Waste of time and money
So disappointed in this product
Firstly the mini remote does not work even after installing a new battery, and secondly the optical link doesn’t work either. I guess I shouldn’t have expected much for $120.00 I’ll be returning this on Monday...
Aldi Bauhn Soundbar with Bluetooth
On sale at Aldi on the 23rd March 19 for $119. First impression was that it was quite a solid build and visually appealing however only one colour. About 90cm long, 8 D, 6 H.Comes with a couple of cables, an optical and a 3.5 jack. Sits on either its feet or wall mounting brackets (included). I found it easy to set-up with cables attaching to the back. The sound is crisp and clear even at louder levels. What I was disappointed in was the fact that it doesn't have that rich deep bass sound which I can get in my cheap $20 Bluetooth Speaker despit...e having an "Enhanced Bass" as part of its description. The remote's EQ and Bass/Treb functions make little or no difference to the sound. There was no problem connecting Bluetooth to my mobile phone and laptop. Not a bad attempt and it will be interesting to see the durability of it.
Sound drops out
A bit disappointing, just purchased a Bauhn soundbar a few weeks ago and the sound / connection keeps dropping out

Questions & Answers
I can’t get it to work on HD tv or Netflix....any ideas?
The remote has stopped working even after changing batteries. Off/On hasn’t worked for ages & we have to use button in middle of sound bar manually. Now the volume control isn’t working either.
Worked fine for a couple weeks, now all of a sudden when connected via Bluetooth to my phone my music keeps dropping in and out every couple of seconds!
Does anyone know how to fix this as it is extremely irritating?!
