Sound bar vs streambar

Jump to solution

Can someone please explain the difference between the Roku Soundbar and Roku streambar?  I need one but don't know which one OR if I just need the Roku Speakers.  I have a new Roku Westinghouse TV.  Thank you for any help.

Thanks for the inquiry.

For the most part, both Roku audio devices do the same thing, with the major difference being the size of the device.

Interesting. I originally had a Sound Bar. It had issues and Roku replaced it. I received a replacement, exact same footprint and looks exactly the same. The software however identifies it as a Streambar.

Smart Soundbar or Streambar (with or without sub?) for TCL 6 Series?

Jump to solution

Recently got the TCL 6 series (love it) and have had some issues with the internal speakers, but I can’t find any in stock for a replacement so I’m just looking to get a soundbar. What is generally the preference between these two? They seem virtually identical aside from the size of the drivers, so I’m inclined to get the Streambar due to its size and because it’s newer, but the reviews seem pretty mixed regarding audio quality. Also not sure if you’d need the Sub for it to sound good. I would primarily be using it for watching TV and playing PS5. The rest of my home has Sonos and a HomePod mini, and is centered around Airplay 2. I like that these bars are HomeKit-ready and should work seamlessly with my Roku TV, and the price seems good enough but I’m not confident enough to pull the trigger yet. I’m also considering the TCL Alto 8+. Anyone able to provide their experiences/insight?
