Excellent in my small room!

  • Summary: Excellent Surround sound!!! But then again, I have it mounted in a small room with closed walls, not an open area, but works great!!

Not fooling anyone about surround -- silly connection design -- awesome sound

  • Summary: This sound bar is not going to fool anyone into thinking there are rear speakers, but sound is very good. I'm a sound snob and this replaced an outstanding 5.1 system because a move made rear speakers impossible if I wanted to continue my 33 year marriage -- which I very much do.

There must be better solutions out there

Phil Dattilo, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: I suppose you get what you pay for...the voice discrimination on this unit is pretty poor. The surround sound not surprisingly is nonexistent. Mostly I just hear a lot of relatively muffled sounds. I'd care less if the unit cost $250 or so, but it cost just enough for me to be annoyed about it.

Great Speaker Bar

Lowell Handy, Amazon

  • Summary: Great sounding speaker bar. Wanted to replace my tower and center speakers. The DT was a great choice. Sounds terrific and the surround sound is solid. Came with comprehensive directions on how to properly configure my receiver. Very satisfied.

Not surround sound, just awesome sound

JMac, Amazon

  • Summary: A sound bar is a sound bar, not a 5.1 system placed in the correct locations. moving past that fact, this sound bar is EXCELLENT for music, movies, and regular TV. we watch a lot of sitcoms in the evenings and the issue many times with a 5.1 or 7.1 system is getting the dialog loud and clear.

Highly Impressed

TomM, Crutchfield
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I recently moved into a new home. The family room did not support my existing 5.1 speaker configuration. It was going to cost thousands of dollars to have in-wall speakers installed. Rather that do that, I decided to take a chance on a sound bar.
  • Pros: Sleek design. True audio receiver support (front, surround, and center channel speaker support). Sound quality. Sound imaging and effects.
  • Cons: None

Not As Expected

LindaG, Crutchfield
9 November 2012
  • Summary: We purchased this sound bar because the reviews seemed to indicate it produced sound quality close to that of true surround sound for those who didn't have the room for (or want to deal with) installing multiple speakers.
  • Pros: Sleek design.
  • Cons: Sound wasn't better than that coming from our TV.

Not that impressed

LDStudio, Crutchfield
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I have a small space and wanted to avoid wires with my usual home theatre set up.i spoke with the rep at Crutchfield and he recommended this for amazing sound and convenience. The surround sound , even with the additional subwoofer I bought, not realistic at all.
  • Pros: Not really any
  • Cons: Poor surround sound quality even in a small room; bar very heavy and anchors for wall not included.
