Summary: It's takes a bit of tweaking and a good subwoofer. Do the automatic thingy and then go back and tweak it yourself, you will be amazed. So will your friends, everyone is always amazed with this thing. I have it paird with a Velodine sub and it is incredible even after 3 years. :)
Summary: Good: -Great simulated sound -Good alternative to wiring several speakers for surround sound -Soundbar correctly switches sound (cable box to ps3 or vice versa) when I change HDMI source on the televsion.
Summary: I have been investigating "sound bars" for close to two years. This unit is NOT a sound bar, its a sound projecter and there is a HUGE difference between the two. I owned a 200w 7.1 surround sound system (200w per speaker).

Summary: Coupled with a subwoofer, this is perfect for the person who wants a movie experience without the overload of multiple speakers, receivers and wires. You can't go wrong, best surround bar on the market.
Summary: Purchased this product 2 weeks ago, very pleased with it. I wanted to avoid alot of wires due to brick walls and no atic in tv room, soundbar seemed logical. I tried the sony hct 100, it had teenie tiny sound and i promptly returned it.
Summary: If you do not want to run cables all over your room for a surround-sound system, this is the option for you. It's a nice looking unit - it complements my TV very well - and the sound is fantastic, especially when paired with a subwoofer.
Summary: 1 speaker does it all! Many features to make this a good investment. While the current going rate of about $1600+/- I got it for free..yes free. I won it w/a 50" Samsung Flatscreen plasma 1080p hd tv, Yamaha YST-SW315 10-Inch Digital Pro Series Subwoofer and a blu-ray dvd player all from Pepsi!

Summary: Great solution to surround sound when you don't want a complex installation or are unable to run wires to surround speakers. Easy setup, upscaling looks fine, audio sounds much better than tv speakers.
