Not with a bang, but a whimper
"OK, action!" As the actors dive into the scene, the director closely monitors their performance. Every nuance is carefully examined to make sure nothing betrays the story being told or the characters who tell it. Once filming has wrapped, hours will be spent in post-production tweaking the look and sound of every scene. Eventually, the finished work will play in living rooms across the country, where it will sadly be mangled by those miniscule speakers built into the sides of your HDTV. What a waste.
Give this story a happy ending
But you can do something about it. You can get the Harman Kardon SB 26 and recapture the director's original vision. This attractive sound bar and wireless subwoofer work together to bring movies and TV shows into your home the way they were meant to be experienced: with explosive sound effects, clear dialogue, detailed music scores, and enough volume to fill large rooms. Rest the bar on your TV stand or mount it on the wall with the included hardware. A single cable from your TV can get you up and running, so you never have to rely on those underwhelming, overmatched TV speakers again.
Discover the bass you've been missing
Your TV's speakers are not only small, they're ill-equipped to deliver the low frequencies that add depth and power to movie and TV soundtracks. That's where the SB 26's wireless subwoofer comes in. With a 10-inch down-firing driver and wireless connectivity to the bar, you can place it virtually anywhere it your room. Worried about too much bass dominating the sound? Dial down the sub's volume with the included remote.
HDMI and Bluetooth connections
The SB 26 isn't just for movies and shows. Connect your Blu-ray player to one of the sound bar's two HDMI inputs and play your CDs or concert Blu-ray discs through this system. The bar's HDMI output lets you take advantage of this system's on-screen guide, so you can easily view system settings like virtual surround listening mode or Harman Volume to keep commercials from playing too loudly. The SB 26 also features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless music streaming. Pair your smartphone, tablet, or computer to the bar and instantly play music stored on your device or in the cloud.
