Pros and Cons
Pros2

The new remote is probably the best remote control i’ve seen in a surround system. The backlit keys are also brighter so controlling it in the dark is a breeze. the menu utilizes the small led panel on the speaker strip to scroll through settings.

Ghz is the recommended frequency for a 5-fi router. Ghz is the most common 4.

Cons5

This soundbar still roars and it is far better than this nakamichi. This system lacks any directional audio detail. The center speaker is far inferior to my tv speaker and i am constantly shutting it off.

System has sync issues from bar to both subs. The subs crackle randomly even when no audio is being played. Bluetooth subs and side speakers lose connection for about 2 seconds.

After months with this unit, it is just unsatisfactory. That is why you see so many people trying to dump this garbage. Not one of the 3. Poor execution nakamichi.

The bass is the biggest disappointment. I'm very glad i returned it and went with the sony htz9f.

If i pause a movie it will take 3 to 7 seconds to get sound again after hitting play. If i fast forward or rewind the movie it takes 5 to 10 seconds for the sound to come back on. When you rewind 10 seconds it is pointless.

Pros3

The sound quality is immaculate, and the sound matches up perfectly with what's going on, on the screen. Kinda simulates dolby atmos, it’s perfect. The built-in subwoofers deliver to our liking; we’re not fans of window-rattling sound but we enjoy the...  Read More

Comes with everything you might need to mount this under your tv including drywall screws and a handy stencil. Does works fluently with my tcl tv and easy setup configuration startup.

I was on the fence to try a different brand, and per rtings review, tcl alto 8i is the best 2. Breeze bar. Do not consider the negative reviews here.

Cons4

Tcl alto 8i consistently makes a really loud grating buzz noise when i switch from cable to streaming or vice versa. Whenever there’s a slight pause in audio over hdmi or optical, the device shows “pcm audio’ and then drops out. The bar is extremely g...  Read More

Highs are not ear piercing sharp and roll off nicely. The built-in subwoofers hardly produce any bass at all. This feature also presents issues when navigating menus, as sounds associated with highlighting and selecting various menu options on nvidia ...  Read More

No returns without original packaging. Mounting process would've been nice if the mounting hardware provided any leeway in the spacing of the holes. This is completely ridiculous when you have two brand new tcl products that are supposed to be compati...  Read More

It's a shame this feature was implemented so aggressively. Wednesday, a loud screeching sound. It still powers on and you can navigate the menu, just no audio.
