I have always wanted an external sound system for my TV, but am unwilling to pay a lot for it. Recently I found this Maxell SSB-1 Maxsound Soundbar Tabletop Speaker with Built-in Subwoofer and a sexy High Gloss Finish on sale for $49.99, originally $129.99 at Shop.ca.
The Maxwell Soundbar can go under flat screen TVs that are up to 40″, or 55lbs. Evidently you can also use the soundbar for other electronics than your tv:
Connect your iPod, iPhone, iPad, TV and other MP3 players using the included 3.5mm cable. Maxell has taken the home audio experience and simplified it. No need for expensive receivers, amplifiers or messy wiring. Simply plug and play media from your favourite device.
I price compared and though finding the system was difficult, the sale prices around were quite similar. Amazon doesn’t have it in stock themselves, but a marketplace seller does. The system from them will cost you around $65 including shipping (excluding GST). Amazon.com also has the system at a similar price, but it will not ship to Canada. Overall, this was the best price (and with free shipping) I found.
There are many great reviews on the product, most citing that at this price point the system is a steal.
So I’m getting one! Can’t wait till it comes in.
