Review: Teac's Sound Bar Is What Every PC Is Missing

By Tony Ibrahim | Friday | 17/08/2012

Like most things Teac, the Enforcer (SB01T) sound bar is best described as simple. It's a 42cm speaker that has been dressed down, and all of this works to its advantage.

The sound bar is an ideal companion for any notebook, PC and at times, a TV. It's a complementary device that is meant to be heard, not seen.

For that reason, it sports a black uniform that is only interrupted by Teac's branding and a subtle white light that glows on its side when plugged in via USB or mains.

The white light traces the large volume knob, and is the only control you'll find on the sound bar. There's no remote, but the truth is it's probably best to control the volume from the device you're using.

For a product you're not meant to interact with, it is built surprisingly well. The sound bar feels solid and the front has a passive radiator design that imbues it with retro charm. This simple approach works.

Behind the passive radiator lies an integrated 2.0 speaker and dual 2" full range drivers.

Dialogue is a no-brainer for this speaker, sculpting each syllable effortlessly. It's ideal for watching YouTube clips or genres of music characterised by dynamic vocals.

Crank the volume and it's immediately apparent this little unit has plenty of fight. It exudes loud tunes, hits notes with precision and creates a convincing atmosphere.

Technically Teac is right in saying it can be used in conjunction with a TV, but combining it with an all-in-one PC—and other small screen devices—will reap the best results. This is because the small sound bar isn't virile enough to envelop you in sound when you're sitting far away.

More expensive rivals handle the mid-range a little better, but at $99 this unit fulfils its duty amicably and then some. It's the perfect addition to any home or work PC, delivering big bang for small buck.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
