"Tested MANY soundbars, opted for this 1 - Read review!"4.5 starson by Supergenie
Pros: WAY better sound then one would think for the price! Toslink , SRS works very well, Sub and 2 RCA inputs. Great looks to boot! Solid construction. Decently loud. Clean sound - not a tin can performer by any means!
Cons: Would have been really nice if it had a headphone out jack! Remote usually needs to be directly in line.
Summary: OK, I tested many soundbars including Yamaha, Sony, Panasonics and others. They are all good, but here was a hands down winner. What makes this soundbar so good?
Firstly, for those who like their sound quality, this will surprise even the audiophile enthusiast. The 20 Watts/per Channel is a serious 20 watt. So it has a very good punch. As far as its ability to reproduce highs and lows, extremely impressive. In fact, if you close your eyes, you will in no way believe the sound is coming from that small speaker!
Also, if you buy the soundbar by itself without the wireless sub,you can save tons and that particular soundbar has a Sub-out. That is the one I opted for. I was able to plug my own choice of Sub to it. Having done that, all I can say is "WOW!!!!!!. THe 2 soundbars are identical for specs and sound. Just that one has the wireless Sub.
Having said that, I tested several types of music on this soundbar. Country, rock, pop, metal, jazz. Reproduction of Horns was impressive. High notes had no harshness. This unit does not sound like it is in a can. The SRS adds that third dimension that really works extremely well. Movies sound great too.
I was surprised that this entry level is upper end sound, upper end looks and upper end quality build. Hats off to VIZIO on such a great product! I would strongly recommend this to people whose budget is not way up there but don't want to compromise their ears!
