Summary: It is as close as you'll get to a true 5.1 surround sound system in a sound bar! You don't hear sound behind you if you are seated against a wall, but you hear the sound coming from the front and sides. Only the Yamaha sound bars sound better, but they are VERY expensive.
Summary: If you want to greatly improve the sound quality for your TV (DLP/LCD/Plasma), then this is the ticket. The "Dialogue" sound is absolutely excellent. Even the sound of the musical content and background special effects of regular TV broadcasts are awesome. As far as a "True 5.1 or 7.1 Surround System" goes, this unit is not capable of producing, due to the design. It does do an excellent job of "Simulating Surround Sound" as designed.
Pros: Attractive Design, Crisp Sound, Easy To Connect, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Ideal product for those that have to compromise sound for aesthetics. Looked at many sound bar solutions. Denon have indeed raised the bar (no pun intended). To top it off, I bought an Alphason ARC-FS3 AV table that the whole thing fits into. Now I can watch the 40 inch Sony with quality sound without the huffing and puffing about wires.

Summary: J'ai acheté cette barre de son pour une utilisation quotidienne "Plasma, PS3 & DVico" en complément d'un ensemble 7.1. J'avoue que je suis vraiment bluffé par cet ensemble qui me ravit littéralement.
