I suppose you could do your national insurance number.
In terms of what it is actually supposed to do then it is analogous.
In terms of what it actually does in the US/gets used for by the clueless and desperate then we have internet videos
@Sicklyboy decent soundbars do give *some* surround effect but this isn't surround and it doesn't try to be, so it's nothing more than ordinary stereo speakers put into a plank form factor which is bigger than separate speakers would be and not any more convenient since it's only stereo anyway. and you pay extra for the oversized case with nothing inside it
@The Real Jdbye, sure, my AKG headphones give a bit of a surround effect too because they've got a great fucking sound stage despite being stereo by nature lmao. But yes that's my point exactly. The only benefit to a sound bar is they generally "just work" (except for when they don't)
