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

rustyredcab, Amazon
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.

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.

Good sound bar, need a subwoofer

Jason Giroir, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: I've had this unit for a few months. I replaced larger floor-speakers and a dedicated center channel. Replacing all that is a tall task for a soundbar. Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. However, having a separate powered-sub is a must for me.

Overall a very good system

Pete C, Amazon
7 November 2010
  • Summary: Purchased with a new Denon receiver and 60" Sony LED, great package. Installed directly under the TV, basically OK but the actual mounting bracket seemed a bit flimsy as I had to bend back into shape after a couple tries at mounting.

  • Summary: Solid construction, very appealing design, I am still tweaking the receiver settings to optimize sound. The sound is a little dull with standard Denon equalizer configuration.

Better than expected

D. Mikan, Amazon
24 May 2009
  • 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.

SPAW

Vernon M. Turner, Amazon
14 December 2008
  • Summary: Good product, but overpriced considering it has no amplifier or subwoofer built in. I suspect in 6 months it will come down to $399, when the competition catches up.
