Philips Model HTL1180B Soundbar
Bought this from Kogan my second purchase from this company. The sound is better than I even expected. The surround sound works well with my Sony 55 inch TV with an optical cable I purchased from the warehouse for $8 all-in-all excellent. I would definitely purchase from Kogan again I have found them very helpful in all respects.
Good quality and value
Got this on special for under $100. For my TV setup (Kogan 55" curved screen) I had to purchase a separate optical cable for the connection. Works well, remote is easy to use. Sound is really clear. Haven't needed to try full volume yet as it's plenty loud enough for the 12 x 6 m shed I have I have it set up in. Very happy with this purchase.
It no longer works!!! How unimpressive is that!
I purchased the Philips HTL1180B soundbar in February and had it installed in late April. By June 2017, it was not working at all. I am not a technician, but when no sound came out of the thing I stopped using it. I am exceedingly disappointed and definitely will not buy anything of this kind from Kogan again. I would prefer to go to a shop, where it will be easier to return faulty equipment.
Much Improved sound
Had some difficulty which way was best to connect. RCA connection wasn't my first choice but easily managed the Optical cable option. The sound is clear, has a quality sound from an older TV. Since discovered a sub woofer is available. (Dick Smith)
