Cons: Sound quality is ordinary at best. Unit shuts off after 30 minutes of inactivity. No control over bass or treble.

Summary: I wanted something to enhance the sound of our TV. This item got many great reviews and its simplicity to install was appealing. It was overly easy to install, but I was expecting more of a "wow" difference when this was on.
