Great Sound Bar for a Great Price
I was in the market for a better sound system since my TV speakers weren't loud enough for me. I decided on a Sound Bar because I wasn't looking to spend a huge amount for a home theater system. Also, sq footage-wise, my living room is not that big. I ended up with this Sony HTCT260, since my TV is a Sony as well and I wanted to pair up the remotes. I chose this particular model because of the wireless Sub.
Overall The sound is great. Very clear and crisp dialogue.
Ease of set up
The Sony HTCT260 offers some good features like the Blu-tooth option that works really well when streaming audio from a iphone or any other Blu-tooth device, which makes this an ideal docking sound system but without the dock. Set up is very straight forward and you can be up and running in minutes, the functionality of the wireless sub is ideal for those that are short on space and donâ?? t the untidiness of wires running everywhere as this can be placed anywhere in your room.
Good connections and features
The Samsung HW-E551 is an impressive soundbar system that gets it right on many levels. The split soundbar design is a genius touch, appealing to those who want a traditional two-speaker setup as well as people who like the idea of a single wall-mountable unit. The wireless sub, with its array of useful inputs and compact dimensions, is hugely convenient, while on the aesthetic front the silver finish makes it one of the best-looking soundbars around.
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.
Great for home theaters!!!
Set up was straight forward. Speaker wire supplied was not great, invested $10 in seperate spool of RCA wire. After setting up and running the microphone sound set up utility, started enjoying right away. Have a 15'x20' room that I'm able to shake the pictures off the wall pretty easily, so volume levels are no problem. Great sound for TV, movies and sports. Remote supplied has (what feels like 100's of) tiny buttons.
I did many hours of research on which sound system I wanted to purchase. I currently have a Samsung sound system in my living room and like it a lot except for the software aspect of it is a little sketchy. I decided to go with the Harmon Kardon BDS 370 2.1 for my bed room because it is a simple and elegant system. I have no regrets on the purchase of the Harmon Kardon. It produces excellent sound at all volume levels and has all the features I need in a simple 2.1 sound system.
Awesome sounding, replaced wires
I have been using this Harman Kardon HKTS 16WQ 5.1 Channel Home Theater Speaker System for about 3 months now. They sound awesome, and make the home theatre and music listening experience very enjoyable. For their size, the surround and center speakers provide better range and solid tonal quality than I had guessed they would. And the subwoofer, although with a smaller driver than my other subwoofer, adds that low end sound tightly so its not mushy at all.
Awesome value and performance for the money!
The Vizio VHT215 is amazing and an excellent value for the sound and performance that it delivers. I am a huge fan of all Vizio products and own the Vizio 3d SVT554 and a Vizio tablet. Quality, performance and service have all been exceptional. The sound bar was an unexpected upgrade from the Sony surround sound system I had. I recently had some renovation work done and removed the wall speakers to streamline the living room. The Vizio sound bar is simply incredible.
Solid, adjustable audio
If you're in the market for a budget sound bar and don't need chest-thumping bass or HDMI ports, critics slightly prefer the Yamaha YAS-101 and its integrated subwoofer. It doesn't pack the same punch as the Vizio VHT215, but it nevertheless delivers a satisfying wallop -- and it doesn't run into the Vizio sound bar's subwoofer woes, either.
Wide array of inputs and a wireless subwoofer
The VIZIO VHT215 2.1 soundbar system performs admirably in clarifying dialogue, amplifying action movies, and simply elevating your TV's sound quality. With a wide array of inputs and a wireless subwoofer, the VHT allows you to easily and inexpensively install and expand your home theater sound system.
Good output. Automatic power on.
I bought a Toshiba 40" LCD HDTV several years ago when it was on sale with a very good price (at that time). Then I realize the sound quality of it is really bad as a result of cutting cost. I found this sound bar and the Vizio one on sale at around the same price 2 years ago. After comparing the style and reviews, I decided to keep this Samsung one. I am using the optical output from the TV to connect to the sound bar. It has 2 optical digital and 1 analog input. The mounting is easy.
