Boat Aavante 1160 Soundbar Audio Quality

So firstly, its miles better than any TV Speaker, while testing the audio, I played a trailer on my TV and enabled the movie equalizer mode.
I noticed that the highs and the mids are really good, crisp and clear.
The Bass is not like the one we usually get when a sub woofer is connected, but it is quite decent, you can hear the beat but will not feel it.
But overall the Bass is much better than what I expected. It creates a good sound experience when you are watching an action scene. We could differentiate between the left and right channel which is really good considering its size.

Also you can control the Treble and Bass levels from the Remote as per your preference.
I would recommend you to keep both the Treble and Bass at half to get a more balanced sound.
Overall the sound quality is quite good if you want to enjoy movies or dramas on this Soundbar .
Coming to the Music quality, firstly it gets quite loud. I switched the Boat Soundbar to Music mode while playing music and it made the audio sound far more richer.

Excellent mids and highs for its size. Surprisingly the Bass is also above average even though there is no separate subwoofer. Actually I expected it to be a lot flatter but it sounded pretty good.
You wont ever use your TV speakers again, if you have this.
This Boat Aavante Soundbar also comes with a news equalizer mode which basically enhances the vocals which comes very handy at times


Although there are some minor cons such as the missing optical input and the overbright LED indicator but its not a deal breaker. Overall for the price of RS 3999, its hard to complain.
