Poor quality control. A few critical flaws. I do not recommend.

Summary: I originally bought a polk sound bar 5000 because it seemed to have decent audio came with bluetooth. The bluetooth constantly cut out and dropped the signal even with my device 10-15 ft away. I returned this flawed unit (and paid $50 return shipping) and upgraded to the Polk Audio 6000 instead, which is supposed to have better sound quality. Well, it does have better sound, when it works.
Summary: I was so excited to get this sound bar, but my enthusiasm quickly wore off after having it for a couple days. I had recently wall mounted my television onto my plaster walls, this caused the built in speakers to create almost an echoing effect. So I went online and found the Polk Audio IHT 6000, and thought it looked like a good option for me without spending crazy amounts of money.
Summary: I installed this soundbar today for a client. The setup is so easy, and the sound is undeniably worth the money. When you open the rather large box, you find a sound bar that does not have RCA inputs on it. This was concerning to me at first, until I found that Polk had the presence of mind to include an adapter from 3.5mm (The jacks that are on there) to female RCA. Also they included an optical cable, which is what I ended up using.
Summary: Excellent sound for a sound bar. I use it in my family room with my TV setup. There was no way to wire in a full surround sound system and wireless systems cost more than I was willing to spend. This product has been the perfect solution for me.
Summary: Although it wasn't particularly difficult to set up, it stopped working within a couple of days of installation. I would definitely not recommend this product. Amazon was very good about the return, however, and we were able to ship it back at no charge and received a refund in a timely manner.
Perfect upgrade for our home! Polk customer service is AMAZING!

Summary: I bought this system yesterday off Craigslist for $100. Before I bought it I called Polk customer support to ask a few questions. (This is something I like to do before buying products I am new to) The product is only as good at the CSR thats willing to help you in my book! Within 2 minutes I was connected to a LIVE person that actually answered all my questions. I figured that in itself was worth buying into!
Summary: For all of you having issues with the WiFi connection, you need to get a better router. It is not the equipment. Upgrade to a WD or Linksys 900 HD series or AC router. The routers in your home were not designed to run such high-def signals.
