Summary: I bought this sound bar not knowing what to really expect sound wise when I got it. I plugged it in, set it up and then with minor tweeking I was able to get a sou7nd that makes you watch TV even more than before. The sound is awesome and I didn't have bad sound before on my Sony 52 inch Bravia TV. I found that if you just disable the effects that the sound you get is perfect both base and treble wise. And the volume level is more than you would ever want. Good job Sony!
Summary: It is an excellent sound system,Booming bass and crystal clear audio perfect match for Blue tooth. Make sure go in the menu then audio and turn the effects off, it will make the sound bar much louder.
Performance far exceeds price- A no-brainer. (Read Chris K's review 4/13 and David Ceremuga's review 6/13)

Summary: Read the review by Chris K. from 4/13. The man knows what he's talking about and did way more research than I. And David Ceremuga's settings recommendation is TOTALLY right on. You may want to play w/ the bass and treble levels a bit based on your room, but DEFINITELY use the Music setting. I was tempted by the Movie setting, but the mids were all wrong. As a result your ears cause you to overcompensate by cutting the bass and jacking the treble.
Summary: I never thought a sound bar could be this good! I've recommended this to a number of people. I use it in my bedroom which is about 200 square feet and it sounds amazing. I have the sound bar and tv mounted directly to the wall and the subwoofer is next to my bed. The bass is amazing and having the option to connect my iPhone / Nexus to the sound bar via bluetooth. It also works as a universal remote for my 42" Vizio TV.
I was hesitant, but glad I joined the Sound Bar Revolution!

Summary: I was a bit hesitant about the soundbar revolution and the move away from 5.1 systems for many people—myself included. I did my research to the point that I was overwhelming myself (the usual process I take when investing in new electronics), so I decided to trust the other reviews and the general reputation of Sony devices, which I have had all positive experiences with.
