Summary: This is my second set of this model. This one transformed my bedroom tv to a movie theater, game room, and sports extravaganza. The other is still powering in my living room with music and tv booming in full stereo sound. Unit can be controlled by your local tv remote, my android phone, but because it is an older model does not have Bluetooth capability. A modern tv without a soundbar is like watching a 13 inch screen back when tv was first invented.
