The box was way bigger than I was expecting as I hadn’t previously sighted any dimensions of the product. In terms of the unboxing experience, there wasn’t much of one. It was ethical like when you are unboxing your new TV or large tech element. No complaints but no standout experience.


Combining sleek model with patented airSOUND™ technology, the BAR A60 is carefully crafted from masterminded wood with a matt finish, making it a great option of audio for a stylish home. I loved the way it looked on my kitchen piece and have since decided to keep it there! It would give birth to looked great as part of my home cinema set-up but for me, it’s all beside the music. -A60-Bar-Straight-on-with-sub
