Summary: i originally purchased a LG NB3520A sound bar simply because it had the best ratings, 300W output & had awesome features like bluetooth capable. This was a good soundbar but with one major problem which is the sound quality which i started to notice when i started watching movies.
Summary: I bought this after doing a lot of research online and in big box stores. I researched both traditional home theater (with Blu Ray) systems and sound bars from almost all leading brands. Traditional home theater comes with its own pain for arranging speakers and adds to living room clutter.
Summary: The design goals for flat panel TVs is to manufacture them to be as thin as possible and to minimize the boarders to optimize the viewing area. Unfortunately, this leaves very little room for built-in speakers and the consequence is "tinny" or "shrill" sounds from the TV's tiny speakers.

Summary: I bought this for a second TV in a bedroom. I have a higher-end built-in surround sound system including a Yamaha receiver in my living room. That living room receiver has "pass-through standby" or standby pass-through, which is to say that, when the receiver isn't on, the TV speakers still produce...
Summary: I install audio / video on the side. I do it because I love it. I also take great care and pride in my work. Part of what I bring to the table for the people I help is advisement on equipment (usually saving them thousands by recommending alternative brands / dealers).
Summary: After seeing 51 out of 91 reviews being 5 stars, and lots of 4 star reviews as well, I had high expectations for this unit. Unfortunately, it really isn't that impressive. I had an old JVC THC-5 DVD playing unit that recently died, and I've been looking for a suitable replacement.
Summary: Adjust your expectations for this sexy little unit and I think you will be pleased. My viewing room is 15' X 15' and only has half-walls at the back. The system sounds very good when we moved the couch to within ten feet.
Summary: I just set up this system and it is a great deal for such little money. My apartment living room is about 15'x15' and this setup fills it with deep, rumbling movie theater sound. The receiver/sub woofer is fairly large, but it is exceptionally well-built and looks like a high-end piece of audio gear...
