You get what you pay for...

Gyroslynky, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound bar first off works as advertised and sounds good. However, the sound bar itself has issues within itself. Meaning, I am at times unable to turn on my sound bar from the power switch on the sound bar instead I have to use the remote. And if your batteries are low your remote will not work. The sound bar control occasionally lock up up and do not respond. Meaning the volume, power and input selection does not work on the unit itself.

Not horrible, not great. Not worth $500 +

K. Albarron, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this system at BJ's wholesale for $500, which in my personal opinion, I expect pretty good sound for that price considering my last system was half that and sounded great for the time. This thing really never prodiced surround sound, so do not be expecting a surround sound experience too much. It was loud and the subwoofer wasn't bad, but overall I had wished that the clarity of the sound was better.

Good subwoofer, but not much of a Surround experience

Philipp, Amazon
5 June 2008
  • Summary: The Surround sound experience is somewhat ambiguous, there are moments during a movie where you are indeed tricked into thinking you are hearing sound effects from the side or behind, but 90% of the time you won't. In addition, just having one digital input (and co-ax!) seems a bit outdated to me. And what's the idea behind having it in the subwoofer rather than the main bar, where all the other plugs are?

Not Bad !!

  • Summary: I bought this system about 3 months ago to go with my 42" Philips Ambilight Plasma. The looks when combined with the tv is excellent. The sound with video is very good for what I want and excellent for my bedroom, I have a high dollar home theater system in my livingroom already. The one thing I will say is if you have the slightest bit of audiophile in your blood don't count on this system for critical listening.

Deep Sound, but where's the surround?

Ian M. Readman "Bunker Mentality", Amazon
6 December 2007
  • Summary: Always a tricky one when reviewing something which sounds great, but doesnt really do what it says on the tin. I read a few reviews on the Phillips sound bar and decide to go for it rather than the Yahama, due to its inclusion of an upscaling DVD player being built in. My house just doesnt lend itself well to placing 5 speakers, particularly rears, so I thought what the heck I'll try this.

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Ljudåtergivningen är superb när det gäller musik, mindre bra när det gäller tal. Det blir för basrikt oavsett hur mycket man skruvar på inställningarna. Jag har konstant diskanten på MAX och basen på MINIMUM. Ändå blir det för basigt! Surroundljudet lämnar en hel del övrigt att önska, men det är kanske inte helt limpans fel. Har märkt att det varierar från film till film. På Independence Day är surroundljudet uruselt medan den på United 93 är riktigt mäktigt.

Acceptabel

  • Summary: Enkel att installera och bra ljud, men det är inget annat än ett 2.1 system. Det är helt omöjligt att få surroundljudskänsla med detta system. Efter en helgs pillande utan att bli riktigt nöjd så lämnade jag tillbaka systemet till Onoff.
