-- I'm Matthew Moskovciak from CNET and we are gonna take a look at the Toshiba SPX 4250. This is a budget sound bar with wireless -- for and it's currently selling for around 270 dollars. Overall this is a pretty generic looking sound bar as a black plastic cabinet with a matte finish and it feels a little -- when you pull it out of the box. And there's almost no styling to differentiate it from others sound bars. At 2.2 inches deep it's not ultra thin but it will fit comfortably almost -- -- -- There is a display on the front panel which is nice they can get some visual feedback as to what input your honor how -- -- blindness. Included remote is actually quite good as a clean simple design. It also has a substantial feel plus you get direct access to bass treble in subwoofer controls right on the -- -- -- -- subwoofer is wireless although it does need to be plugged into a power outlet. And again the design is pretty pedestrian except for the accented silver base -- on the front. What makes the SPX 4250 unique is its extensive features that. To start it has built in Bluetooth which makes it easy to wirelessly stream audio from most Smartphones and tablets. There's also a tunnel ports on the back panel including two HDMI inputs to optical inputs and analog input and a mini Jack and it. Now all those inputs may sound nice especially if you have a lot of home theater gear. But they're not absolutely necessary. A lot of sound bars these days expect you to connect all your devices directly to your TV. Then use -- TV's optical output to get audio to the sound bar. So the extra ports on the Toshiba -- nice if your TV doesn't have that many inputs but for a lot of people that are not the most important feature. As for sound quality the SPX 4250 is about average it's gonna sound a lot better than the built in speakers on your TV. -- put it up against other top performing sound bars it didn't compare quite as well. The Toshiba has -- -- detailed sound. But the -- for isn't as powerful as some other systems so it lacks some of the impacted one from a true home theater experience. So overall -- sound quality isn't bad but you can find better sounding systems at this price. So altogether the real reason you buy the Toshiba over other sound bars is its feature set which is a cut above most sound bars. Personally I think most buyers are gonna be better off prioritizing sound quality or design. Especially if you end up using accuse switch between devices but if you want a lot of inputs the SPX 4250 is worth checking. I'm Matthew Moskovciak and this is the Toshiba SPX 42.
