3 Reasons For for Choosing the Promethean ActivSoundBar

Handheld Remote Control

The Promethean ActivSoundBar has a handheld remote control, and so does the Samsung HWJ250, whereas the QFX SBASE2000, the Razer Leviathan and the Yamaha YSP5600 do not. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' denotes whether the soundbar comes with a remote to control the device from afar.

A remote control makes it far easier and more convenient to use the soundbar - you can turn it on/off and tweak the volume without having to get up and walk across the room!

Wall Mountable

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is wall mountable, and so are the Samsung HWJ250 and the Yamaha YSP5600, but the QFX SBASE2000 and the Razer Leviathan are not. More ...

'Wall Mountable' denotes whether the soundbar can be mounted on a wall, or whether it has to rest on the floor or on a stand.

Newer by Nine Months

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is 16 months newer than the QFX SBASE2000, two years newer than the Razer Leviathan, 23 months newer than the Samsung HWJ250 and nine months newer than the Yamaha YSP5600

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Promethean ActivSoundBar

Smaller Audio Output Channels

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is 2 channels channels, and so does the QFX SBASE2000, which is 4 times as less audio output channels as the Yamaha YSP5600 (7.1 channels). More ...

'Audio Output' denotes the number of individual channels for the soundbar to use. Specific sounds and parts of the screen are assigned to individual channels, allowing the soundbar to simulate surround sound and create a deeper audio depth.

More channels mean that the sound will be more spread across the channels, leading to a richer surround sound 'effect'.

Smaller Power

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is a 40 soundbar, and so does the QFX SBASE2000. That's 20W smaller than the Razer Leviathan (60W), 40W smaller than the Samsung HWJ250 (80W) and 88W smaller than the Yamaha YSP5600 (128W). More ...

'Power' denotes how powerful the soundbar is, measures in watts.

Generally speaking, the higher the power level of the soundbar, the louder the maximum volume, and the better the sound quality will be.

Does Not Support Bluetooth

The Promethean ActivSoundBar does not support Bluetooth, whereas the QFX SBASE2000, the Razer Leviathan, the Samsung HWJ250 and the Yamaha YSP5600 support this feature. More ...

Whether the sounder has support for wireless Bluetooth connections or not.

Bluetooth support allows you to stream music from your phone or laptop directly to the soundbar, without the need for wires.

Does Not Have a Subwoofer Included

The Promethean ActivSoundBar does not have a subwoofer included (As do the the QFX SBASE2000 and the Samsung HWJ250), however the Razer Leviathan and the Yamaha YSP5600 do. More ...

Whether the soundbar includes a subwoofer, which is a loudspeaker for low frequencies (bass sounds).

A subwoofer boosts the bass quality of the soundbar, allowing it to have far more powerful bass than would otherwise be possible.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Promethean ActivSoundBar has only received a Kagoo Score of 61, whereas the Razer Leviathan scored 88 and the Yamaha YSP5600 scored 77.

More Expensive by $37

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is $37 more expensive than the QFX SBASE2000 and $4 more expensive than the Samsung HWJ250.

Fewer Sellers

The Promethean ActivSoundBar is only stocked by 1 shop, but the Razer Leviathan is stocked by 8 shops and the Yamaha YSP5600 is stocked by 4 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Worse Brand

Promethean soundbars have an average rating of only 54.9%, but QFX has an average rating of 56.5%, Razer has an average rating of 77.3%, Samsung has an average rating of 70.3% and Yamaha has an average rating of 86.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the ActivSoundBar in the US is $99.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Yamaha YSP5600

4 Times As Many Audio Output Channels

The Yamaha YSP5600 is 7.1 channels channels, however the Promethean ActivSoundBar and the QFX SBASE2000 are both only 2 channels, the Razer Leviathan is only 2.1 channels and the Samsung HWJ250 is only 2.2 channels. More ...

'Audio Output' denotes the number of individual channels for the soundbar to use. Specific sounds and parts of the screen are assigned to individual channels, allowing the soundbar to simulate surround sound and create a deeper audio depth.

More channels mean that the sound will be more spread across the channels, leading to a richer surround sound 'effect'.

A Lot Bigger Power

The Yamaha YSP5600 has a power of 128, whereas the Promethean ActivSoundBar and the QFX SBASE2000 are both only 40W soundbars (88W smaller), the Razer Leviathan is only a 60W soundbar (68W smaller) and the Samsung HWJ250 is only an 80W soundbar (48W smaller). More ...

'Power' denotes how powerful the soundbar is, measures in watts.

Generally speaking, the higher the power level of the soundbar, the louder the maximum volume, and the better the sound quality will be.

Bluetooth

The Yamaha YSP5600 supports Bluetooth (as do the QFX SBASE2000, the Razer Leviathan and the Samsung HWJ250), whereas the Promethean ActivSoundBar does not support this feature. More ...

Whether the sounder has support for wireless Bluetooth connections or not.

Bluetooth support allows you to stream music from your phone or laptop directly to the soundbar, without the need for wires.

Audio Return Channel (ARC)

The Yamaha YSP5600 features Audio Return Channel (ARC), however the Promethean ActivSoundBar, the QFX SBASE2000, the Razer Leviathan and the Samsung HWJ250 do not feature this benefit. More ...

An 'Audio Return Channel' (ARC) uses an HDMI connection to send audio to the soundbar without the need for separate audio cables.

Subwoofer Included

The Yamaha YSP5600 has a subwoofer included, and so does the Razer Leviathan, however the Promethean ActivSoundBar, the QFX SBASE2000 and the Samsung HWJ250 do not. More ...

Whether the soundbar includes a subwoofer, which is a loudspeaker for low frequencies (bass sounds).

A subwoofer boosts the bass quality of the soundbar, allowing it to have far more powerful bass than would otherwise be possible.

Wall Mountable

The Yamaha YSP5600 is a wall mountable soundbar (as are the Promethean ActivSoundBar and the Samsung HWJ250), whereas the QFX SBASE2000 and the Razer Leviathan are not. More ...

'Wall Mountable' denotes whether the soundbar can be mounted on a wall, or whether it has to rest on the floor or on a stand.

Better Brand

Yamaha soundbars have an average rating of 86.8%, whereas Promethean only has an average rating of 54.9%, QFX only has an average rating of 56.5%, Razer only has an average rating of 77.3% and Samsung only has an average rating of 70.3%.
