Re: Bose home speaker 500

Home Speaker 500 or SOundbar 500?


The home speaker isn't designed as a TV speaker, so does not have any of the wired inputs you normally require.  If your TV has a headphone out (3,5mm) you could connect it.


Wirelessly, some TVs may connect via BT however there are often issues with latency (lag) when you do.


Stereo speakers designed for music generally aren't great for TV anyway.  While they add volume and a bit of clarity, they won't separate the center channel (ie vocals) as something like a Soundbar will.  As well as that SOundbars can cope with the better audio formats to give you better sound.
