Summary: I purchased my first Polk Audio speakers back in 1977. They were a small, little know company back then. But I took the advice of a savvy stereo salesman (music lover). I wasn't then, nor have I ever been, disappointed with any of their speakers. I have a massive set for my stereo system & I have this sound bar system now for our work training room. This was so inexpensive & puts out a great sound w/o having to crank up the volume.
Summary: Excellent product for the money. Easy to connect, good instructions, great sound. I am no stranger to high-end sound systems so when I connected this small unit In a basement den I was really surprised at the quality of this product for the money. You can actually feel the base at sound levels that have very little distortion.
Summary: It took me a long time to get the sound turned on the the instructions were poor. After many times of trying to get the sound, I almost gave up and sent it back. I turned the unit on, but not the tv and went by the instructions and then turned the tv on and be hold, a sound. the remote on my tv works only part as the turning the sound up works great, but to turned the sound down, it does not work.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend who was in desperate need of better sound at her house. The bar is easy to program with any remote and I was really surprised by the sound. Crisp highs, surprising bass from such a small sub and it took about 5 minutes to setup. Make sure your TV has an optical output and that your components such as a set-top box, DVD, Roku, etc are connected to the TV via HDMI.
Summary: This system is pretty darn easy to set up, and wow, I had no idea how much sound I was really missing. The directions, though, could use a little work. Just because you turned on the power to the sound bar and the subwoofer, doesn't mean you have turned the bar on. Of course, you must use the remote to turn the bar on. If you don't see blue lights, it is not on. If you are unable to have the volume "learn" a quick call to the number in the directions can solve that.
Summary: Unboxed and set up in less than a half an hour. Being directions aren't for men I attempted to connect the optical cable between the TV and soundbar, not knowing there's a rubber cover over each end of the optical cable. No wonder it didn't work or plug in very well. After removing the covers on the optical cable, everything worked great. The DirecTV remote gave me some trouble, however the new remote we got with the new Genie DVR works perfectly.
