Pros and Cons
Pros5

Now i’m no audiophile but this system is just wow. Ever calibration works all the time, except when you place the rears out of the soundstage range. If you are looking for a room filling sound stage you may want to go with an avr.

The wireless subwoofer and detachable (and rechargeable) surround speakers transform the room quickly for movie nights and sporting events. The magnets that attach the true wireless sides are powerful.

Easy setup first of all. Easy set up and syncing with entertainment system. I am not tech savvy but it was pretty simple hooking it up after watching a few you tube videos.

To reiterate, the bass is amazing! The sub woofer is such great quality. The bass complements the sound and hits hard when it must!

The bar is nice and has a nice profile. It's nice but the drivers are a bit undersized for the price. There aren't many good atmos soundbars with legit wireless speakers. Had been for over 30years. Sonos arc, vizio elevate or samsung hw-q950t.

Cons3

At times it has errors on which interrupt the sound. There is considerable hiss and static in the detachable surround speakers. A charge lasts for around 3 or 4 hours before they start to crackle and need to be charged.

Sometimes it simply stops working and my sound switches back to the tv. This is when it required pulling power to reboot it. If the soundbar is plugged in, it says load and no sound comes out of it.

A supervisor said he doesn't know when they will refund my money.

Pros4

Bluetooth connectivity is flawless within 30 feet. I love it like a fat kid loves cake. The left to right separation is incredible.

This thing is perfect as my garage workbench stereo. This thing cranks.

Bass is really good and not overpowering. No distortion.

Better than any portable speakers. Has paper tweeters which don't sizzle the highs, but still has good sound. Being a audio file person, very particular ear and pro musician, blows my huge and heavy equipment away.

Cons4

Subwoofer is a joke. No bass or treble, only funky equalizer. It has no bass at all more like a regular woofer.

Pos, keeps cutting off and on. It freezes up while music is playing. Worst thing about it is the continually flashing red light.

There is nooo way this bangs out 700w. Poorly made, does not put out 700 watts at all. The wattage is at odds with the volume output capability.

It's oversized for the sound it produces. No led or any other indicator on the stereo. Your only salvation, and only while playing from bluetooth sources, is an equalizer app on your phone.
