Summary: The sound quality is good and is directed to you in front of the TV set. The TV speakers are located to the left and right sides, not directly to you. This was the reason we wanted a sound bar and we were not disappointed.
Summary: Set up is a breeze. One optical cable from TV to Solo is all that is needed. Great sound, but over-priced. I could not get my Panasonic to work with the remote either. I will keep it because ii is a space-saving device.
