Boston Acoustics TVee 10, Tvee 26 sound bars offer sound upgrade

The Boston Acoustics TVee sound bars offer a sonic upgrade to flat-panel televisions and can be wall mounted.

The Boston Acoustic TVee 26 includes a subwoofer; the TVee 10 does not. Boston Acoustics

Boston Acoustics has unveiled its two latest sound bars designed to combat the poor sound quality of budget-to-mid-range TVs.

The TVee 26 is an upgrade to the TVee 25, and the TVee 10is a new model. Though the TVee 26 is the same $350 price as last year's model, it makes some important and welcomed changes.

The two new sound bars are essentially the same, but the more expensive product adds a wireless subwoofer. The 2011 TVee 25 was a decent speaker, but one of reviewer Matthew Moskovciak's complaints was that it didn't offer a remote. The new model adds a credit-card-style remote, but the company still recommends programming your own TV remote for convenience. Both sound bars also include a 3.5mm input and digital optical.

The sound bars feature two oval 5-inch drivers with the company's BassTrac technology for stronger bass, which is supplemented by the sub in the case of the TVee 26. Both models include an updated design with front-mounted controls and keyhole mounts on the back.

The sound bars are available now. The TVee 10 retails for $199.99; the TVee 26 is available for $349.99.
