I normally never write reviews about anything but I thought this deserved a good one. Let's get right to the point for those of you considering getting this soundbar. The sound is amazing obviously with the 5.1 difference from a 2.1 and with the extra 2 speakers, wow it's like a theater in my house....  see moreof MrMoz's review

    I was hoping the satelite speakers were also wireless and just needed power to opperate. They instead plug into the wireless sub. Not a big deal, but who likes wires? Sound is great, bass is great. Only negative is the volume steps are far apart at low levels. Remote functions are easy after rea...  see moreof Andyman's review

      So the sub is a downwards facing sub to make sure it on a solid surface that doesn't echo or vibrat. Then ir say wireless but the sub is wireless and the two rear speakers have a rca cable that connects them to the wireless sub...overall it is better then my old 2.1 system I had.  see moreof Awagner103's review

          Soundbar stopped working in less than 90 days. Target was great processing the replacement. I'm just worried that it could go out again and maybe I should have bought a different brand.  see moreof jobbersteve's review

            This system sounded very good considering the price, and worked great with our Vizio TV. It was convenient being able to use the TV remote to control the sound bar. However, the sound bar completely died in less than 3 months. It seems others have run into the same problem. It was nice system while ...  see moreof SDK's review

              All speakers crackled within 10 days, will be returning. Not happy with the loud bass either. It's possible I couldn't figure out how to adjust everything, but this is not for me. In addition I couldn't program it to work with the TV or cable remote, so I was always searching for the remote when I n...  see moreof suzinAZ's review

                Connected everything and the rear speakers didn’t work. Also the subwoofer is pretty weak.  see moreof KB's review
