Benefits of Monitor Audio Mass SB-4 Passive Soundbar:
Stylish design but good sound quality
SB-4 gives you a stylish product that takes a bit of space. Nevertheless, it delivers a good sound that suits most. The bass is there despite the small dimensions, but as usual, we recommend that you complete with a separate subwoofer. The C-CAM elements originally come from the Gold Series so they maintain a very high level of audio quality.
A passive soundbar has no built-in amplifier for the speaker elements. This means that you can connect a home cinema receiver to it. The advantage is that you get all the functionality of modern receivers, such as acoustic space correction, Spotify Connect, HDMI switching and scaling, etc. You can also choose to connect to surround speakers (use Monitor Audio for best sound matching).
