Vizio S5451w-C2


The sound bar is best seen as a reaction to home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems, which promised all-in-one simplicity, but often resulted in the same speaker clutter and nest of wires most buyers were trying to avoid.

The Vizio S5451w-C2 sound bar includes two rear speakers, allowing it to deliver a real surround sound experience from a sound bar system. The sound bar itself is jumbo-size, creating more stereo separation than traditional systems, and the plus-size...

Truly massive system, especially compared with other sound bars. The sound bar's height might block your TV's remote sensor. And you can get similar surround-sound effects from Vizio's smaller 5.1 sound bar for half the price.
