Exceeded my expectations
I have had a 60" Sharp for 12 months which I love but the sound output of a flat screen is limited. I trialed the Bose equipment which was incredible but it came with a $1500 price tag which I could not really justify. So, I read and watched the online reviews and the Vizio seemed to be reasonable quality for the price.
This weekend I set it up which was as simple as they say.
Exponentially better than built-in TV speakers
We never had any doubts that Vizio's latest audio solutions would be appealing from a value standpoint. What was at question was whether or not these sound bars would sound good enough to keep folks from feeling urged to spend a little more in hopes for better sound quality. Having spent some quality time with the system, we have to say yes, it can
The average listener will be very satisfied with a SB4021M purchase.
Surprisingly rich sound
Got this to augment the sound coming from our 52" LCD TV, which has meager speakers. HD set top box and Blu-ray player connected to the Yamaha with optical toslink cables. For action movies the sound has good punch with the bass remaining tight and manages to fill all corners of a spacious open floor plan living room-kiitchen area. Shows with dialogue emphasis get the "voice" option and this works very well.
I bought one on sale from Dollar General for $35. I never heard a tower speaker before and bought it to plug in to the head phone out jack on my 24 inch led TV. The remote is one of those bubble button ones, so I don't have much confidence in it. The sound is great! I put my USB memory stick that I coppied all my CDs on to and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon came on. I don't remember hearing it so well before! The sound is great!
This is easy to install and for a small unit I was impressed with the sound quality -- that does it for the Pros. On initial set up the sound was clipping in and out. The directions read that the input amps can be trimmed using as small switch on the back with three settings, but this was only supposed to work for the Aux-1 input? After much frustration, even though I was using the fiber optic input, I tried to change the setting and the clipping ceased so that problem was solved.
Simple installation with no need for a receiver
Overall, I believe that Boston Acoustics achieved their goal of building a simple, user-friendly, full sounding audio system. When you factor in the cost and the ease of setup, it's hard not to give it a hearty recommendation - particularly if you are still listening to the awful audio from your flat panel television's integrated speakers!
A solid offering
If we had to describe the Klipsch HD Theater 600 is a few words, we'd call it a solid offering. While the 33Hz low end rating seems a bit optimistic to us, the price tag certainly is right. At $600 for a full 5.1 system, the Klipsch HD Theater 600 is sure to introduce a lot of people to the Klipsch brand and, more importantly, the Klipsch sound. And once they get a taste for it, they'll be more likely to stick with it.
Decent sound for budget-conscious consumers
I moved into a new townhouse with my wife and we've been hosting a good share of house parties, where music was a mainstay. We were using a small 2.1 speaker system with an AUX in for playing music, but it was a mediocre arrangement at best. I've seen these tower-style speakers before, but was skeptical of how they'd sound. I took a chance on the iCraig, and I'm glad I did.
Not what I thought it would be
Still do not have it working. Instructions are almost nothing and I have had two other people look at doing it for me. They think something may be wrong with the bar. Another friend has offered to try it at his house to see if he can get it to work. So far its been a wasted purchase.
Nice Sound but lacks Adjustment
This is the 3rd sound bar I have tried for my LCD TV and so far, it is the best. Had the new Bose Solo, Samsung with sub and this one beats them if you don't want the thump, thump thump of bass when you just want clear speech.
Still wish it had a way to adjust bass, Mid's and high's, then it would be perfect.
Great system for the price
I bought this to go with my Panasonic TV and Panasonic Blu-ray player- I wanted brand consistency and I don't think I missed out on anything by sticking to Panasonic. The sound is great and loud - wireless subwoofer is great and the bluetooth reaches really far with my phone. The "surround" sound doesn't give quiet as good an experience as the multi-speaker system but if you are looking to not have wires everywhere or a ton of cost this is the way to go.
Effective dialog enhancement
Let's take a moment to put things in perspective: The SC-HTB350 is a roughly $250 system that is miles ahead of any TV's built-in speakers, and stronger sounding s than many larger HTIB's we heard over the years. While it suffers from some sonic weaknesses that won't pass serious scrutiny, this system is sure to please those who want a simple and flexible speaker system with the convenience of a wireless sub and the capability to produce big sound with muscular bass.
Innovative multi-positional speaker system
Although SC-HTB350 doesn't produce the extra sparkle in the high frequency range, blow-your-socks-off bass, or immerse you in a true surround sound environment, that you may get in a 5.1 or 7.1 channel speaker home theater audio system, it definitely does provide a listening experience that is a major improvement over having to put up with inadequate TV speakers, without taking up a lot of extra space.
