Does what it says


For $200 it does what it says. Easy hookup-I did soundbar to tv via HDMI and I also my Sat receiver to soundbar. No problems so far. Love the USB port. Can watch avi, wav, divx, and listen to music directly from a flash drive without having to burn to...

Unequaled JUNK!!!


This was, by far and away, the worst product I have ever purchased. Tiny, tin sounding speakers that were flopping around inside of cheap plastic cases. Two of these dinky speakers were not even screwed down right and you could heard the screws and the...
