Pros and Cons

Pros4

This is unlike the sounddock clicker remotes. Open it up, plug it in and use it. There is a huge difference, they aren't concerned with sound for a tv.

The bass heavy mode is very good for a unit without a subwoofer. Because i love gaming, i want something that's going to give me some spatial simulation in addition to good theater-quality sound. Its sound simulation is excellent and i've been very ha...  Read More

The seams are smooth and the surfaces are smooth. It fits that bill perfectly. And my solo proves it.

For most newer movies and sporting events this speaker does the job. Great dialogue enhancement feature.

Cons3

Excessive bass is compounded by an appalling lack of treble. No base or treble adjustment. No equalizer type adjustments either.

The cpu fails to ramp-up the power supply. Having to disconnect & reconnect drives me insane. Sometimes if i disconnect cables and reconnect it will work.

Months after the purchase it is always going out. We have to unplug it from the back & reconnect. The seller's return policy won't replace the product so we are stuck with an unreliable, expensive product.

Pros4

For a smaller subwoofer, this thing pumps out some serious bass. It's punchy, but not deep. Subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room. Only complaint is sometimes the sub can drown out the speaker.

The sound is certainly an upgrade from the regular tv speakers. I keep mine in surround mode for movies and most tv shows. Many people are satisfied with the speakers in their tv, and they won't be looking here.

Once in use, the sound is phenomenal. Clear and crisp. The sound is really good for a smaller setup.

With the advances and advantages of bluetooth, long gone are the days of large cluttered component systems. I own a few newer sony tvs with the bluetooth using a2dp. I have it connected to my benq ht 3550 projector that doesn't have the arc hdmi.

Cons2

Sony tv (sony) defaults to tv speakers. If connected using earc, it turns off your tv too. Not enough input connections.

Speaker quality is horrible. Tinny sounding all the way through. Subwoofer is just like the cardboard, light as the air around it and just as nonexistent as my lovelife. Soundbar arrived bent with a couple of caved in spots.
