Would not recommend it

  • 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"..

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.

  • Summary: I got this sound bar as a discounted price when i bought my plasma TV. I have problems ever sine I got it. First, there is no remote, and trying to get the buttons programmed onto my universal remote was poorly designed and did not function properly.

  • Summary: Wow, this units could have been amazing except for one key fatal flaw. Beware!!!! When I hooked it up to my TV, I wanted to use the Digital Optical link. I tried both the analog and digital. The digital sounded much better.
