Summary: The sounds bar is extremely easy to setup and get up and running. TV sound quality is excellent for every day shows. No problems hearing dialog. There is an option to make speech clearer though I don't feel like I need to use it. Music sound quality with the soundbar alone is good. The speakers can't seem to handle very much base though overall sound is crisp and clear.

Pros: Expandable, Streams All My Music, and More, Superior Sound
