  • Summary: Set thisup9in15minutes.The only. issue I have with this is the volume is too loud. Tough to adjust with TV volume control. Now about the sound, incredible keeps with Harmon Kardon reputation. I have wireless sub-woofer upstairs in my loft and the effect is amazing.

Would not recommend it

Elie Ferzli, Amazon

  • Summary: Really good sound quality but there's no remote control, no mute button and that's annoying it only mutes when you lower the volume to the end, and finally the lowest level you can get it down to before muting level is equivalent to this statement: "everyone in the house can still hear it"..

I bought the sb16 in "Used - Like New" condition

  • Summary: I bought the sb16 in "Used - Like New" condition. This is a very good product. It is replacing my Klipsh Promedia 2.1 because the foam on the subwoofer started to tear and made a flapping noise after nearly three years of heavy use. This is quite the upgrade for me though.

  • Summary: Good system. You've got to have theater sound with a big screen TV. I am pleased with the quality of sound, but due to the acoustic layout of my living room, it doesn't seem to give optimum output. I was expecting a lot more. I am enjoying it during movies and football games.

  • Summary: This is a good midrange soundbad/woofer option. The SB16 will deliver better sound than the Sony, Phillips, or JBL soundbar you could buy at Best Buy, but falls short of audiophile quality.

Expensive paper weight

B. Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased last Christmas at Fry's for $199. It was difficult to set up with Samsung 55" HDTV. Tried everything. Researched, called customer support. Ended up going back to a set of Bose computer speakers that plugin through the headphone jack. Maybe i can pull the magnets out of the harmon speakers.

Soundbar generated virtual surround sound is a joke if you only trust your ears.

Mrinmay M., Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: I returned the product after using it for two days and replaced it with a Bose Acoustimass 10 with Onkyo Amp. No complaints about the product in particular. In addition I did not expect a soundbar create a surround sound which can match the real surround speakers but I had expected something better.

(Tries to) operate over congested 2.4GHz WiFi .

Trevor Lien, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: Read Reviews before you buy! Awesome sound, horrible implimentation. When it works, it sounds great. Unfortunately, there are some un-recoverable flaws: 1- BIGGEST flaw - the wireless connection runs on 2.4GHz wi-Fi and requires a lot of bandwidth in spectrum that is all but used up in urban...
