The subwoofer connects the rear speakers via wired cables, and there's a ton of length between them. This is the best surround sound system i have owned. We have a relatively small house and this package fills the space with sound.
Remote control is poorly laid out, its instructions are difficult to understand, and the display on the soundbar presents text in a non-intuitive way. The audio systematically cuts off in the middle of a movie, show or sporting event. Only works half ... Read More
There’s just no crispness. Channel separation is weak.

There's what looks like a wi-fi light on the top. The app is horrible and you expect them to set it up with this app? Still no connection to the iphone. Can't get phone app to work either.
The sound out of the sound bar tends to be very muddy. At this point the app is useless since it can't find the soundbar. No real improvement from the tv's speaker quality.
