1. Focal Dimension

Audio specialist Focal has finally entered the ever growing and increasingly popular soundbar market, with the Dimension – a customisable speaker that looks to give you better sound quality and a cheaper price than the other high-end alternatives. Instead of just being confined to a soundbar, the Dimension can also be easily turned into a soundbase, giving your 50-inch or above TV a place to sit, while improving the sound at the same time.

A Bluetooth dongle adds in wireless audio streaming from a smartphone or tablet, while a wireless subwoofer is also available if you’d prefer not to go down the soundbase route.

We’ve been big fans of Focal products for a while now (its Spirit headphones are very impressive) and from our initial time with the Dimension is sounds awesome – with sharp and well balanced audio whether you’re watching explosion filled action blockbusters or listening to music.

It’s well designed too, sleek and black, and we especially like the motion sensing buttons that glow when you wave your hand over them and disappear when you move away.  

Price: Dimension Soundbar inc Bluetooth Receiver £889, Dimension Soundbar inc Sound Base and Bluetooth Receiver £1199, Dimension Soundbase £329 | Focal
