Roku Smart Soundbar (2019)

A tale of two Smart Soundbars

Roku just released a Smart Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer priced at $179.99 each along with a lower spec “onn.” version sold exclusively at Walmart for $129.99 each. So there’s the Roku model and the onn. Roku version that look almost identical. However, the onn. Roku Smart Soundbar offers 40-watts of peak power versus 60-watts, different drivers, and an IR remote instead of a voice remote.

Sound and Streaming

Both 32-inch Soundbars are powered by the Roku OS which provides access to 500,000+ movies and TV episodes and millions of songs from a simple home screen. Advanced volume modes enable consumers to reach for the remote less often. Automatic Volume Leveling offers uniform audio level across various types of content, including quieting loud commercials. Night mode lowers the volume for louder scenes and boosts it for quieter ones. Speech Clarity boosts voice frequencies to address intelligibility for crisp, clear dialogue. Automatic software updates will deliver new capabilities over time.
