Summary: Bought this 3 days ago to place it on TV stand in-front of a VIZIO 70" TV. First thing it block off bottom 1/2" of the TV screen. Its just <40" long and little big in size compared to Yamaha sound bars. Does Sound really good compared to TV speakers. But its NOT very LOUD and there is no volume indicator to show if I am at 75% or 80% of the full volume. Its might be because of the room size.
Summary: I listened to quite a few sound bars and read a lot of reviews before chosing this produce and its the best by far for the price range. Energy has a $3000 sound bar the is incredible but this one is very good too. I have it in my bedroom and I and very pleased with it. I have the sub at half volume and the power is incredible.
Summary: I was sold by the previous reviews and the recommendations from a audio specialist at Best Buy but when I got it in my home and hooked it up the sound quality was awful. The soundbar is tinny and has poor sound output and the subwoofer is barely audible. The "learn" function in the system does not work and the soundbar is huge and unless you are hanging it on a wall, blocks any remote functions on your TV.
Summary: I recently bought the Energy Sound Bar for my apartment to go with my LCD TV and iPod. I had some difficulty with setting it up as my TV lacks an optical output. I had to order a digital coax to optical converter on-line. Once I got the converter, the setup was easy. The sound is very good for both music and TV. The bass is pretty good and the sound bar automatically located the subwoofer. I wish that it had bluetooth but I was able to easily connect my iPod.
Summary: Bought this unit to supplement the TV sound from my new Samsung plasma. Produces great sound quality for my small living room. More than adequate for my purposes (maybe even overkill). There is a larger unit available for bigger spaces, but I think this unit will do the job for most living spaces unless your a super sound freak. I'm completely satisfied. Waiting for the new Samsung blue-ray players to hit the shelves to really test out the sound.
