Pros and Cons
Pros5

The sound is rich, resonant and thunderous and is so amazingly priced. The sound has depth, the surround experience is nothing short of fantastic. This speaker is perfect for a sony bravia tv.

It connects automatically and quickly. Easy to install and i really like that it has bluetooth connectivity.

Remote is way better than samsung and i prefer sony remotes. The surround feature and bluetooth makes it awesome for music playing in addition to film and television. Only complaint is that i can't use my amazon firestick remote to adjust the volume. ...  Read More

Bar is large for 2. It is well mated with the bar. Using their e-arc hdmi port automates the sound bar. Only issue is the audio delay on it especially with the sony tv models that released this year and last it has trouble keeping sync.

This soundbar is great. That’s the only downside. Was never disappoint us. Silly me lol.

Cons1

Sony sound bar has no bass and zero mid range. I would return it if it wasn't such a hassle to send back. My echo speakers have more bass and higher sound quality.

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
