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.
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.
Summary: Any one could say that this is not the best sounding system on the market, no doubt. But for the money, it is a very good value. I have had mine for 18 months and have always been glad that I bought it. The set up took no time at all. I have never had to adjust anything but the volume.
Summary: We got this sound system because we wanted to get a good sound system, not too expensive.. we decided on this polk soundbar.. we aren't tech wizards, we're just simple people who like to watch tv and have it sound nice..
Summary: I purchased this soundbar after reading reviews and also because it was wireless. I have a 24" LED HD TV I purchased from Walmart. The brand is Element. When deciding to buy the Polk system I was unaware that it did not have a connection for coaxial audio, it only had RCA and optical.
Summary: The good: - You can't overstate how convenient it is that the main soundbar is so thin and light. My TV is in a corner on an angle, so I needed a unit that could sit at the same angle without protruding too far. This fit the bill perfectly.
Summary: We bought this after a lot of research. The sound is good coming from the bar and the subwoofer and we love that the subwoofer is wireless. However, the device to control on/off, volume and sub is TINY and it already doesn't work well. I have contacted Polk Audio to see if they will replace it.
Decent, and a big step up from LG's TV pitiful attempt at sound

Summary: Recently I purchased a 65" LG LCD 3D TV. The sound from this TV was about a 2 on the 10 scale. One dimensional, terrible. So, I started the process of reading endless reviews. Like always there are reviews that say "this the best ( ) ever, only followed later by someone else who thinks that same...
Summary: The Polk IHT 6000 Instant Home Theater does not deliver an "astonishing performance" as advertised, and I'm still looking at my flat panel TV the same way. In general the system works fine and the set up is easy. The surround rendering is at times erratic.
