6 Reasons For for Choosing the Razer Leviathan

Subwoofer Included

The Razer Leviathan has a subwoofer included, and so do the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Samsung HWJ551, whereas the Bose Solo 5 and the LG SK1 do not. More ...

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Razer Leviathan

Smaller Audio Output Channels

The Razer Leviathan is 2.1 channels channels (as does the Samsung HWJ551), whereas the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini is 5.1 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'.

260W Smaller Power

The Razer Leviathan has a power of 60, but the Bose Solo 5 is a 1W soundbar (59W smaller), the LG SK1 is a 40W soundbar (20W smaller), the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini is a 150W soundbar (90W bigger) and the Samsung HWJ551 is a 320W soundbar (260W bigger). 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.

$54 More Expensive

The Razer Leviathan is more expensive than the LG SK1 by $54.

Fewer Sellers

Only 5 stores sells the Razer Leviathan, but 11 sellers sell the Bose Solo 5. More ...

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

4 Reasons For for Choosing the LG SK1

Handheld Remote Control

The LG SK1 has a handheld remote control (as do the Bose Solo 5, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Samsung HWJ551), but the Razer Leviathan does not have this feature. 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!

$54 Cheaper

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG SK1

Only 2 Channels Channels

The LG SK1 is 2 channels channels (as does the Bose Solo 5), but the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini is 5.1 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'.

Vastly Smaller Power

The LG SK1 has a power of 40, however the Bose Solo 5 is a 1W soundbar (39W smaller), the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini is a 150W soundbar (110W bigger), the Razer Leviathan is a 60W soundbar (20W bigger) and the Samsung HWJ551 is a 320W soundbar (280W bigger). 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 Feature Audio Return Channel (ARC)

The LG SK1 does not feature Audio Return Channel (ARC), whereas the Bose Solo 5, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini, the Razer Leviathan and the Samsung HWJ551 do. More ...

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

Does Not Have a Subwoofer Included

The LG SK1 does not have a subwoofer included (As does the the Bose Solo 5), whereas the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini, the Razer Leviathan and the Samsung HWJ551 have this feature. 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.

Not Wall Mountable

The LG SK1 is not wall mountable, but the Bose Solo 5, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini, the Razer Leviathan and the Samsung HWJ551 are. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG SK1 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Bose Solo 5 scored 84 and the Razer Leviathan scored 86.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 stores sells the LG SK1, however 11 sellers sell the Bose Solo 5, 3 stores sell the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and 5 stores sell the Razer Leviathan. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this soundbar remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Fewer Awards

Whilst the LG SK1 has received 1 award, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini has received 6 awards and the Razer Leviathan has received 43 awards.

Slightly Lower User Review Score

The LG SK1 has an average user rating of 83%, but the Razer Leviathan has an average user rating of 87% (based on 171 reviews).
