Not fooling anyone about surround -- silly connection design -- awesome sound
9 September 2014
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. Adding a small subwoofer from one of my old setups, this works great and looks perfect in the room. We bought a cabinet with a sound bar shelf and it is perfect.
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.
Summary: Do to some issues with wiring I could not install a traditional surround sound system in my family room. I was highly skeptical of the soundbar for two reasons. 1) one wall was mostly glass, the other open to the foyer. 2) the space in my bookshelf only allowed for the 42 inch and not the 50 inch soundbar. All I can say is WOW!!! My family room is 16 x 18 with the above mentioned challenges and the DT rocks.
