This simple soundbar from Bose will boost your TV's audio without breaking the bank. It comes with Bluetooth connectivity, a 3.5mm AUX input, and a dialogue mode to make mumbling actors sound clearer.

While we haven't tested the Bose Solo 5 for ourselves, our friends at What Hi-Fi?commended it for its compact size, ease of use, and good clarity when it comes to dialogue. 

The Bose Solo 5 isn't the best-sounding soundbar on the market, but it will certainly offer an improvement on your TV's built-in speakers, and its simple setup makes it ideal for anyone looking for an easy way to start building a home cinema system. 

It comes with a universal remote that lets you control your Blu-ray player, Bluetooth connected devices, and games consoles – which is handy as this soundbar doesn't offer HDMI connectivity, which means you can't use your regular TV remote to control it. 

Having launched in 2016, the Bose Solo 5 Sound System doesn't come with some of the specs you might expect from newer soundbars, like Dolby Atmos support or HDMI eARC connectivity. However, higher-spec soundbars cost considerably more than the Bose Solo 5, and it's a cheap and cheerful option for anyone on a budget.
