Summary: I like the sound of this speaker set a lot. It sounds great and the presets work well. I don't find it too boomy or too thin. The controls are out of date. The old LCD display could use an update.
Really good all-in-one but does not have Bluetooth
26 March 2013
Summary: As mentioned, I thought this model would have Bluetooth since it's standard on almost every other soundbar out there. As other reviewers mentioned, this unit does need setup well and is not ready (audio wise) out of the box.
Summary: I bought this because of the integration to the Sony Bravia television. The sound is much better than the built in speakers and the bass really rumbles. The sound bar is not true surround but sound good anyway. One downside to this unit is mounting options.
Summary: my Samsung flat screen does have tinny speakers, which most people complain about. After setting this up, it was a real delight. With 6 different sound settings,( standard, movie, sports...etc.) I'm able to key in on the one that gives me the best dialog sound.
Summary: This sound bar met all our expectations except one - the remote does not sync up with our RCA TV. If we had a Sony TV it would have, but as it is we have to use the remote for TV and the soundbar back and forth.
