After the Xiaomi Mi TV Soundbar was a big flop for Xiaomi fans in the World, there is now a second 33 inch TV Soundbar Bluetooth Speaker from the Chinese manufacturer. Unlike Xiaomi’s first TV Soundbar, this one is not equipped with an operating system and should work well with your TV or smartphone.

Compared to the Xiaomi Mi TV Bar, which we have already tested, the new Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker with a weight of 1.925 kg is half as heavy and with the dimensions of 830 x 87 x 72 mm also more handy, so also a wall mounting is possible, On the back of the speaker are located at a distance of 416 mm two designated attachment points.
Behind the chic textile cover there are a total of four speakers . Two tweeters with a size of 0.75 inches, which have been implemented on the left and right outside and two mid- and low drivers, each 2.5 inches in size. In addition, Xiaomi has given his TV Speaker four passive emitters, which should provide for deep and rich bass.
Xiaomi indicates the power of the speaker with 2 x 14 watts, which sounds like little power first. In our experience, the performance of Chinese manufacturers anyway is not a good indicator to make statements about the sound quality. To do this, there is only one thing left to do: wait until we have the opportunity to hear the Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker.
The Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker is equipped with a variety of connectors. In addition to the standard connections such as AUX and Bluetooth 4.2, the speaker can also be connected via RCA, Toslink or S / PDIF with a TV / receiver.
The scope of delivery is unfortunately only mains plug, screws + dowels and a S / PDIF cable included. If necessary, additional cables must be procured on own account – here Xiaomi was already generous. In addition to the audio connections, there is also a DC power plug connector, via which the Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker is supplied with power. A battery was unfortunately not implemented, so the speaker is designed only for stationary use.
Overall, the speaker has seven control buttons . Each playback source has its own button, very clear! There is also a volume up or volume down button. Whether in Bluetooth mode, the next or previous title can be selected, we can not say yet.
Since Xiaomi sold the speaker as a TV Speaker, a remote control would have been desirable. According to our current information, a remote control is not part of the delivery – a pity!
The new Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker is a TV bar that is also interesting for Xiaomi fans in Europe. Thanks to the various connectivity options, the Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker is in principle compatible with any TV or receiver, an annoying operating system like the Xiaomi Mi TV Bar falls away.
As with ever thinning TVs less and less space for internal speakers remains, I lean so far out of the window that the Xiaomi Mi TV Speaker probably represents a sound update for every flat screen. How good the sound bar compares to comparable speakers, however, remains to be seen.
