Decent Quality Sound Bar for The Price

mwayne, Amazon

  • Summary: This was purchased as a christmas gift for my parents. The design was well done (it all flows together, very square, hard lined elements in a matte black finish), the sound was sub-par because the subwoofer stopped working (we don't know exactly when).

  • Summary: I'll keep this short: the sound from this unit is adequate, but nothing phenomenal. I actually prefer the quality of my older Sony HT-CT150. It had better bass and clarity. This one has weaker bass and a slightly muddled sound. Here's my major gripe though: why the external receiver?
