Summary: We didn't want to spend alot for a sound system but knew, unfortunately that with the newer TV's you pretty much have to buy a sound bar. We have a large square shaped living room and this sound bar helps project the sound much better. We would have to blast the TV and it wouldn't help. so for the price, we were happy. You just have to make sure you that in addition, you separately order the wires that match your TV.
Summary: It's been 3 months since I have purchased this sound bar & things have gotten worse, the sound goes out or either gets so distorted you can't hear anything. No need to worry though, I have purchased another sound bar by Coby, let's see how this one works out. Dropped my intial rating of 4 stars to 3, I feel the inevitable time is coming were the sound will be gone for good.
Summary: This is awesome if your tv's speakers stink, and we really love it especially because unlike most sound bars, the amp for it is inside and it has the remote. Works very well. If you like music, this is NOT FOR ME, but I have a great 2 channel system for music so it works great for me. Highly recommend if you want simple and effective, but not a real surround experience.
Summary: I have a Sharp LC-52LE700UN and hooked up the audio cables on line input 1 and I was off and running. It really helped me out because I was running the volume on the tv up to 32 and it sounded low. Now I usually have the sound bar set at 14 to 16. The only problem I have is since I programmed it into my Logitech Harmony 600 remote the tv doesn't suppress the volume on commercials which was a nifty feature my Sharp Tv has.
Summary: I was NOT looking for a full blown home theater system. I was looking for something that was energy efficient and would add a nice, full richness of sound to my LED TV. As we all know, the speaker system for LED TVs leaves a lot to be desired. This unit fit my needs and desires perfectly. It was easy to set up right out of the box and on first use I was more than pleasantly surprised.
Summary: Like most other folks with their first HD TV, we were disappointed with the sound quality of the tinny speakers (it's an AOC if that matters...). After considering the options and limited space we have (corner hutch) I settled on this model first because it fits exactly in the front of the hutch lengthwise with about 3/4" left on either end, the cabinet posts keep it from falling forward, a perfect fit.
Summary: This Sharp HT-SB 250 Sound Bar is definitely better sounding than the speakers from my Sony Bravia KDL-37EX503 TV but only if the Subwoofer level is turned right down to the minus 5 level and the bass is set at zero. If you set both the Subwoofer and Bass levels to the '0' position then to my ears the Sharp Sound Bar produces a very nasty distorted bass sound. Of course this unit does not produce surround sound but merely makes voices a bit clearer.
