Summary: This was by far the most amazing soundbar, I have plenty of parties and this is all you need (and a sub) to get solid quality sound for music and or movies. HIGHLY impressed. I would recommend this to everyone!
Summary: So-so performance but high quality build and components. Even though I like the clean look in our family room, I would probably not purchase again. I would buy a self powered version that plugs into TV.
Summary: I have had my SurroundBar 50 for several weeks so it is broken in and I have had ample time to evaluate its sound. I am using it with a Samsung 46" flat screen monitor and have played many movies both from DVD and BluRay. The SurroundBar is powered by a Yamaha receiver.
Summary: I had a set of 5.1 surround sound speakers in my living room, but my living room is rectangular shaped and relatively "small" and I was just never truly satisfied with the placement of the rear speakers behind the couch.
Summary: Amazon and Polk are both guilty in this situation. They advertise a purchase special (buy a Sound Bar and receive a free sub woofer), at check out the item says it will ship in 5-8 business days. Then you receive an email saying it will take 1-2 months....then they ship the sub woofer first..
Summary: I was hoping for high quality 5.1 surround sound from the sound bar just like I would get with speakers spread around the room. The sound quality is good, but I am not blown away as I had hoped.
Summary: VERY easily installed without any difficulty. NO BASS with surroundbar but did not expect any. Paired with wireless 8inch downfiring Polk subwoofer i225/Harman Kardon AVR 1600 with great result.
Summary: bottom line: i got this sound bar for half off, it can handle a whopping 150w/channel, and almost takes the place of having surround sound speakers. almost. my story: i have this paired up with a receiver that can dish out the wattage this sound bar can handle, and the level of sound is so...
