Pros and Cons

Pros4

The juice is worth the squeeze. Take the time to read the manual and make some adjustments for your room. The subwoofer is very good actually have to turn it almost all the way down just to make it to where it wasn't shaking the whole house.

Dual surround is great as well depending on the mood im in and which movie or show im watching. This time around both the subwoofer and speaker are more compact.

It's an affordable and easy-to-use soundbar system that produces great sound quality. The soundbar comes with a remote control that makes it easy to adjust the volume. The remote is very nice with a backlit display.

One of the best things about the vizio v-series 5. Home theater sound bar is its ease of use. The one thing i really like is it is really easy to customize the sound for what i need and yes the 5. Home theater sound bar is a great feature.

Cons2

Not at all happy with this product or seller. Some techs tell me because it doesn't have a hdmi input and can't allow the 4k signal through correctly. Vizio says the serial numbers should match.

The sound is either too loud or not loud enough. The bluetooth feature is terrible. While great for bluetooth, unfortunately not being able to use the soundbar unless i'm blasting audio makes it not work for my modified use case.

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.
