Summary: The quality of sound is excellent it looks great the one bad thing is the remote control system is way bellow adequate basically it just doesn't work. I hope they have fixed this problem with the newer models. I would buy this product again if they do fix remote.
Summary: great sound but unit turns off on its own and will not turn back on. try it again in an hour its fine, for a bit. contacted Harman online for new unit its under warranty will update when Harman responds update: customer service is awful I was told new product would be shipped in 4 days, two weeks later still did not ship, I was told it was out of stock after being put on hold for 30min. funny part is its still available on manufacture site.
I like my SB 16, but there is a note or two to consider
25 November 2013
Summary: I bought an SB16 this past weekend from a local retailer. I typically buy from Amazon for items like this, but I paid less than $300 for it, so I couldn't be happier. Users buying this device typically don't use Amplifiers This is a powered sound bar. You want a non-powered sound bar if you have an amplifier for your home theater system. Unless you have an audio out of your system that is non-powered, you'd best continue shopping.
Summary: Absolutely perfect for my home. I have a Sharp Aquos 60" LED. Many reviews on this sound bar complain about not having a volume indicator or a separate remote control. I found there is not reason to have either. I plugged my unit in, programmed my uverse remote for volume of sound bar and turned off speakers of tv. Even when tv speakers are off, i still have a volume level indicator on screen of tv.
Summary: Near audiophile sound quality at an affordable price point. Easy set-up with no connection issues. Enjoying it thoroughly. Still expensive at the big box retailers so grab it off Amazon definitely!
