Summary: This is a nice soundbar for the size and the price. Packaged in a very beautiful case/cabinet. The sound quality is good but don't expect home theatre quality. If you need it to improve on the sorry onboard audio built in to your television it works well. Nice equipment for the price.

Summary: The sound is a many step upgrade over the built-in speakers. To hear channel separation one sits less than ten feet away, otherwise the sounds blend as with no bar. Being refurbished, it shows a few "smudges" but they have zero effect on the sound.
Summary: Bought it because I live near a street & couldn't hear the TV easily. Yes, you need to be careful removing from the box or you'll tear the speaker covering. Easy hookup. Yes the TV remote works past the soundbar. I am having trouble getting the Yamaha remote to learn the TV volume.
