Default Soundbar + Mono and Dragon Ball

Hello. I've been curious for a very long time, and I'd like to resolve some specific questions. I have a 4K samsung 40 in TV. Just to give you some idea, it is not new. It's a really good TV! I've always kind of wondered, especially as long as I've owned shows from the Dragon Ball series, with it's Japanese mono, if a soundbar was capable of improving that? I don't have sound issues for 99% of my collection, but Dragon Ball and old super sentai shows are the exception.

I always watch the original Japanese and would never bother with the dub. Besides, any benefit to this would be a benefit for my entire collection! Really though, the greatest need is only because of a couple shows. Still super cool though, if everything's better with a soundbar! Thanks!

You have to tell us what you a listening to now. Are you listening to TV speakers? If so most certainly a sound bar would be better than TV speakers.

If you want help with suggestions for a soundbar it would be helpful if you gave us a budget. Some soundbars cost hundreds of dollars while others cost thousands.

Maybe someone just wants a soundbar to sit under the TV than 6-8 speakers in living space. I agree for $ 2000 I would want discrete speakers but to each their own.

Apologies for the late reply. In fact over a few months, all my equipment has been upgraded. This includes a new 4K 43 inch Samsung TV and my first soundbar, a Yamaha. Do I even have to say everything is awesome? And yes, the soundbar does it's job extremely well, and even helps old mono like DBZ! Where before I just wondered if it would help improve just a few things in my collection, now it was a REALLY good idea to have something for sound for this TV! Don't get me wrong! The picture is the best of the best! Practically impossible! But these days I hear plenty of comments about the need for audio equipment because you're expected to get some as today's flat TVs are built to do the job of the picture.

All this is true! And now I'm outrageously happy because I'm getting the whole presentation I always wished for! The image is what your looking for, the sound is more than I could have expected, I have my entire collection to run through it, and I'll be getting other fantastic movies I was already anticipating like Kamen Rider Revice! All these things make my collection and equipment invaluable!

Additionally, my new TV is said to display "100% of available color", and it shows! Before this there were shades of colors I had never seen on a screen, so for a million reasons, I'm delighted!
