Streambar- is speaker always enabled?

Jump to solution

Silly question perhaps,but is the speaker always enabled on the streambar? I do not own one of these yet but considering a purchase.

For example, say I'm watching a programme via the Roku where I don't want the sound to come from the streambar, but from the TV speakers. Is it possible? Or is everything watched using the streambar speaker?

Roku Streambar 

Also, what is the power consumption?

Thanks for the post.

If you are using the Streambar to stream content, then the audio will come from the Streambar and not the TV speakers. In the event that you are looking for a Roku streaming device and simply want the audio to come out of the TV speakers, we would recommend purchase a Roku player as opposed to a Roku Streambar.


Thanks,

Thanks for confirming. Have not actually heard a streambar in action, but would be nice to have the option to switch audio back to the TV, as probably would not want to watch all programmes with the audio power of the streambar.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Yes, you can use the Roku Streambar just for audio enhancement.
