Pros and Cons

The sound is amazing and the fact that the rear speakers are bluetooth and not wired to the tv or receiver is so cool. Great depth to movies and shows with the subwoofer and surround sound speakers. No delay in audio with the bluetooth satellite speak...  Read More

Sound is amazing for my smaller livingroom setup. Subwoofer is powerful enough to make a decent size living room shake. Only complaint (and may be just a limit of a mini 2.

Cons4

Not at all happy with this product or seller. Sound is ok my other vizio blew it out the water not even close.

Each time we turn off the tv we have to reconnect it through the settings. I reset the whole system and still it did not work. It also refuses to stay connected to our samsung tv and if you google why, it states to simply download a firmware update.

There is a persistent static issue going on with the device at low volumes. It comes and goes with no understandable reason and sometimes gets so loud it sounds like the garage door is being raised.

Vizio box was clearly previously opened and reused. They are willing to reimburse me for the sound bar. Off it goes to the thrift shop.

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.
