Summary: I got this unit to use in an apartment living room on a Vizio 55" E-Series TV. Set up was pretty easy and I had it going in about 15 minutes. It looks great on the stand with the TV, and it sounds wonderful. The first thing I did was to play some music from my laptop . Not bad.
TOSLINK / Digital Coas if you don't have HDMI ARC output
2 January 2014
Summary: Sound is awesome. I have a tv that doesn't have HDMI ARC output - so this requires a TOSLINK cable - which wouldn't be an issue - but my tv only has S/PDIF output (tv is 1 year old - 55" LED) Therefore, I have to buy a TOSLINK cable, a coaxial cable and a coaxial cable / toslink convertor box.
Summary: I have had this for about a year. I chose this because I had bought a Panasonic TV. From the very beginning I thought the sound was lacking. We normally just use the TV speakers. It sounds a little better after warming up, but there is something wrong in tonal balance.
For $215 and change this is GREAT to use with a Panasonic Viera TV

Summary: I think this 2.1 setup was a really good value for what I wanted/expected. I specifically chose this system because it is Panasonic like my TV and supports the HDMI ARC (audio return channel) which is needed for the Viera Connect to work.
Great home theater audio system for small room/apartment

Summary: This product is definitely not for audiofiles or for listening to orchestral or choral music. However, it does exceed our expectations for comparable products in the same price point. We're impressed with the quality of very high and low frequencies.
Summary: My new TV speakers were very poor and I needed to use a wireless headset to hear clearly at a reasonable volume setting. After installing the soundbar I cound not believe the sound quality; better than my Sennheiser headset and much better than the local movie theater.
Summary: Got this brand new for a steal off of CL. I was a little apprehensive due to the lack of reviews of this product but decided to roll the dice...and I am glad I did. Like other reviews, the sound that this bar produces is clear and crisp. Super easy to set up.
Summary: We were tired of having to ask that question whenever we watched shows on our flat screen TV. This adaptable sound-bar system gives you "the rest of the story" back, filling in the bass more richly. The price was quite reasonable considering all that the system delivers.
Summary: System was very easy to hook up and the sound quality was a huge improvement over the tv speakers on our new 60" Panasonic plasma. We tried the sound bar initially laying down just below the bottom of the tv.
