Good performing pedestal soundbar


Bought this as its now lower in price then originally when it came out. The sound bar does not disappoint - clear sound and good bass from a pedestal. I needed my TV to sit on top so it could still rotate and this thing works perfect at a great price....

Good rich sound

big ... but what do you expect from a pedestal

Great sound


It was very easy to setup. Quality of the sound is great for our living room. Supposedly the best sound from a quality blue-ray player should be transmitted over HDMI to the speaker. I am passing the sound from the blue-ray and directv through the TV...

Functional and looks good


I bought this speaker because it was the right size. Another brand was too large to fit my corner cabinet, and another was too small for the TV stand. This is the one that fit. But I'm very pleased. It works well and looks good. And I got it on sale! I...

Right size

Outstanding speaker


Great speaker for vastly improving sound quality off a big screen TV. Get a universal remote to go with it though as the included remote is tiny and cheap compared to the very high quality of the speaker itself.

Very good sound & easy to set up


Saw the bad reviews and got the 4 year plan. Set up was a breeze. Sound is good with iPhone music using Bluetooth. Sound is also very good with TV.

Great price & easy to set up

Sound blown 4 days later


I purchased this product on March 7, 2014. This was my first time buying a sound bar for a tv. Sound was incredible and really enjoyed it. Like the previous comment, I've had this for 4 days and the bass seemed to work but it started cracking and I...

Bad right out of the box


After reading reviews on this model I was hesitant on purchasing this unit. I went to the store and after listening to it ,my mind was made up, the sound was great and from $599 down to $299 couldn't beat the price. Brought it home, set up according to...

great all-in-one sound system


Ideal sound system for a good sized room without having to run wires all over the house. Easy to use for the electronic challenged. Not a boombox sound. Does not vibrate your floors like a subwoofer system does.

easy set up, no extra wires
