Soundbar vs Soundbar 2

Post by roadeye » Tue May 07, 2019 7:54 am

Hello.

Are there any significant differences between the Soundbar and Soundbar 2? I suspect there are a number of subtle changes that go along with a new version, but are there any deal breakers for some that are enough not to consider picking up an older original?

Thanks,
Rob

Hi Rob,

if not mistaken, main updates are hdmi (incl e-arc and cec), dual band wi-fi, two-way bluetooth, airplay 2 and improved wall bracket. There should be no sound improvements over the original bar, but operation via hdmi cec could be important enough to some.

Best, KriHad

Just bought a used Soundbar (first gen) for about half the money of the 2i.
For me the extra features don't justify the extra €450, but that's of course personal.

I really like it I must say! :)
