Sky Soundbox review

 

Sky Soundbox brings premium sound to your Sky setup

Premium sound ; Easy setup process ; Intuitive sound modes

Box-like chassis not for everyone ; No Dolby Atmos ; Only one HDMI in

The Sky Soundbox is a fantastic-sounding speaker that packs premium technology into what is a puzzling form factor. When bought as an existing Sky customer, though, it offers great value for money.

Sky Soundbox

 

Sky and Devialet's Soundbox deserves to be a real hit for Sky Q customers.

Weighty bass ; Clear speech ; Sky Q optimisation modes mostly work well ; Large-scale sound from a compact unit

Sound lacks the subtlety for music ; Awkward form factor makes it difficult to position ; Not worth the higher price to non-Sky customers

A good soundbar that makes sense if you’re a Sky customer – as long as you have somewhere to put it.

Sky Soundbox review

 

Sky and Devialet combine talents to take on the soundbar market.

Clear, expressive, widespread sound ; Well built ; Easy to use ; Good integration with Sky TV ; Ample connections

Shape won’t suit all ; No Dolby Atmos ; Shockingly poor value to non-Sky customers ; Bass lacks definition ; Tough competition

Sky’s soundbar-cum-wireless-speaker delivers a big sound from a small box

Sky Soundbox review: Hands down the best value TV speaker on the market (for Sky customers)

 

Sky's Soundbox isn't perfect, but it delivers great sound quality for a speaker this small and cheap

Powerful sound from such a small box ; Easy to use and connect ; Reasonable price for Sky customers

A bit on the tall side for a TV speaker ; Too pricey for non-Sky subscribers

On the other hand, if you're a Sky customer, it's a far more tempting proposition. For the discounted price of £299 or, even better, at £249 for Sky multiroom customers, it sounds utterly amazing and it’s a firm recommendation.

Sky Soundbox review: Incredible audio quality at a bargain price

 

Great sound quality makes this a bargain for Sky subscribers, but limited connectivity means it isn't worth paying full price

Basically, that last line sums it up. The Sky Soundbox is a very good TV speaker indeed, and if you're a Sky subscriber stuck using your built-in TV speakers or a cheap and nasty sub-£200 all-in-one soundbar, then this is about as easy a recommendation...
