Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. There’s lots of competition in the soundbar business….and while Roku may not be the most obvious choice over some well known speaker brands…it may be the best choice for many. Roku’s Streambar Pro….with streaming capability built in…is very good as a stand alone…but you can easily build onto the system with two add on speakers …or four….and a sub-woofer too. An app makes set up simple. And Roku has hired a team in Denmark to create high quality, yet affordable, sound. Brian Moller is VP of Engineering..a veteran of Bang and Olufsen…built the team..
“We have sort of a performance goal ..what type of audio quality or the power. And it’s finding the right compromises if you want and the right optimizations to achieve that in our product.”
The enhanced remote with a headphone jack is a plus. Pricing starts at under 180 dollars.
