"Good...but there are issues that can be avoided."2.5 starson by AudixDIY
Pros: Price, easy to program TV remote to control sound, sound is decent.
Cons: Bass quit working after first week, analog only audio input complicates hook up to HDTV with digital audio output only.
Summary: I bought this model after hearing it at a retail store compared to other similar models, It had superior sound to most other soundbars and at least the same quality of sound to higher priced soundbars. The price was less than those comparable models, so far so good. At home I discovered that my brand new Panasonic Viera HDTV has only a digital audio output, this soundbar has only an analog audio input. In order to connect the two you must have a converter. According to tech sheets/comments, not all converters will work and they cost >$75. You have to do your research and buy the right one. While doing my research the bass quit working, likely a blown fuse but that is a guess. It could have been something more. Anyways this was my excuse to return the item for a full refund. I will now search for a digital audio output compatible soundbar or possibly a surround sound home theater that is wireless. If this model is updated to include a digital audio input hook-up, then even considering the bass quit working, I would buy another one, if there is a good return policy. Right now I am recommending not to buy it unless your tv allow for analog audio output, no reason to deal with the hassle and added expense of a converter. I will have to see if Boston Acoustics sells a soundbar that is digital compatible. Get the point.
