Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great soundbar. Sub lacks bass. Well like others have said in other reviews it does lack bass. I went from a high end Onkyo to this unit trying to save space and having wires running everywhere. That being said after playing with several settings I finally got it to where I am happy and don't have the feeling like I need to return it. I will share what I figured out. I also have the rear wireless speakers connected. Like many I had changed my settings to sub +6 Treble -6 Bass +6 First I reread the specs. I noticed that if you have your audio set to PCM the unit thinks it is receiving DTS. In the specs it says for DTS it will only give you 2.0 stereo. For 5.1 it says to use Dolby Digital. Change TV audio output I changed the output of my TV to Dolby Digital and noticed an increase in volume about 1/4 more and noticed bass response also increased. Again referring to specs PCM was only 2.0 NOT 2.1 so sub was only receiving stero input. I then played Jurassic Park and hugh difference in the surround sound especially the rear speakers and there was a noticeable thump in the bass with the T-rex . Now knowing that I had it set to PCM before the back speaker were just stereo copying the front left and right with Dolby Digital the back speakers now are really working in surround mode. Re-position Sub Another thing I noticed is the sub is very directional. Which I would not believe at first thinking bass shakes and is a low should hear it no matter where the sub is placed. I had mine to the side and behind my cough. When I walk over to where it was there was a noticeable difference standing in front of the sub. So I moved it next to the tv and pointed it towards the couch. Again noticeable difference. To the point now I was able to reset the speaker settings to sub +6 Treble 0 Bass 0 and retest the speakers with several movies. I was happy with the results. Again the bass was not body shaking bass but there was the deep thump in the movies where it is suppose to be. One final note when watching DVD or blu rays double check the movie audio settings to make sure that DTS is not selected and Dolby Surround is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound paired with rear speakers but broke after 4 months Loved this soundbar when I first got it and hooked it up to the subwoofer and rear wireless speakers but then one afternoon it just stopped working. I only had the soundbar for 4 months. I was able to ship it to their support center to get it repaired but really surprised that it would just quit working. Thankfully it was still under warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing! This soundbar is the perfect thing I needed for a projector setup! It works great, sounds amazing, and, my favorite words, 'The Price is Right.' Now I did notice something with this item and I'm unsure if its me or if all soundbars do this, but there is a 1/2 to 1 second delay between the sound coming from the soundbar and the TV (for example, with no soundbar connected to a TV/Projector, the sound is on point with the picture, where as if the soundbar is connected to the TV/Projector, then there is a slight delay between the sound and the picture). Is this normal for most soundbars to do this type of thing?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a solid performer with both pros and cons To be quick, this sound bar is solid for the price. Of course if you get the Atmos one, you'll get much better sound and bass, but again, if you go cheaper, you'll hear the difference. This is a middle of the road, high value unit. The sound and volume are great, and bass can be adjusted. It's not your local XD earth shaking bass, but contrary to some here, the bass is decent. The look is sleek, and the connection via BT was easy and has maintained. Using it with a 65" Q7 and 4K Blue Ray player. Performance is everything I want it to be. I would definitely recommend this unit, especially if you want a great soundbar without going over $500.
