Pros and Cons
Pros5

It took me three days to get the sub and back surround speakers set to my liking. Movie mode is like being in a movie theatre as those twin 10” subwoofers literally vibrate the room. The surround speakers fill the space and create the movie theatre ex...  Read More

The sound is extremely clean and full. Clears up voices that were hard to hear before. Literally exhilarating sound. I couldn't be happier with it.

You won't be disappointed with this system. Almost 40 years later and many changes from the 2 channel days, this system rocks!

Nd subwoofer expands the soundstage and immersing you in bass and mid-range sounds. I have a very larg living room and this really immersed the entire room.

Dual bass subs sound thundering at the right times. The bass rattles my room.

Cons5

Yamaha advertises the ysp-5600 as supporting 7. Definitive audio tests show this unit can truly only handle 7. Nakamichi advertises this unit as supporting 9. My amazon fire 4k tv will not play 4k videos from amazon as the hdmi is not certified 2.

Another * is that the shockwafe doesn't output and display the settings on the tv. It’s embarrassing how many times it glitches when i have people over during a movie night and i have to reset the system every 20 minutes. Often when i switch from one ...  Read More

Having this kind of inconsistency is not acceptable for such a high dollar product. These numbers are not to be used for marketing gimmicks. If the manual was updated and written correctly there would be no need to even get in touch with them.

I have been completely underwhelmed from day one. The dual subs are underpowered and soft. The bass is terrible. It's nothing that couldn't be replicated with any single mid-range subwoofer.

It sounds tinny and muddy at the same time. Says the sound source is dolby atoms on the display on the soundbar. The sound is muffled and lacks clarity.

Pros2

You're not going to rattle the rafters with it. Sound clarity is very good, and that's what we needed for our old ears.

The s60a handily eclipses the denon 216, polk signa s2 and sony htx 8500. It's still not atmos, but it outperforms the sony 8500, which does support atmos. A great example of exemplary customer service.

Cons5

Sonos allows ok google to interrupt arc signal interrupts google assistant playback. Wont pair with brand new samsung tv. When i ask alexa to play music from spotify, it says this device does not support spotify playback, and yet i can play music if i...  Read More

Used new batteries, tried taking batteries out of the handset, power off/on etc. Didn't work at all most of the time. It is especially annoying when you usually turn your computer on at 5 am for work and everyone in the house was sleeping.

It fails on the registration after spinning for 2 minutes. Everything inside had been opened and then tossed back in except the remote. Ended up having to pry the case to slide it off.

I am supremely underwhelmed at the sound quality. It has decent sound quality, but about 6 months into having it im already starting to hear some distortion. My biggest complaint though are the volume and bluetooth settings.

Many of the samsung sound bars have this flaw. The only way to update firmware on the sound bar is with usb. The app is * - it's smartthings, takes time to get to the soundbar page, and also there is no widget. Seems similar issues occur on multiple s...  Read More
