    I have had a Vizio sound bar for about 5 years…more than happy. It’s pretty hard to go wrong with Vizio…price point and sound are great. I would like to see Vizio and Amazon Fire team up to create their own version of this sound bar. I would seriously think about upgrading from my current Vizio sound bar eventually.

    My Roku TV has terrible sound, so I put a cheap sound bar on it. My LG Thinq tv has excellent sound.

    Nice review! Question: Did you test the feature that automatically lowers the volume of commercials? Does that only work when streaming, or does it work with a TV antenna connected and watching over-the-air television? Thanks.

    This is an excellent little soundbar for the price. I have this hooked up via ARC on my old 47’ LG 3DTV and it works like a champ. I’m really missing having surround sound hooked up to it like when I had my original AVR hooked up to it so I might invest in the Bass module and surround speakers so the tv has another lease at life

    Speech clarity isn't always reliable sometimes dialogue is treated like a sound effect and non dialogue vocal sounds are treated like speech.

    Would you mind measuring the footprint of the streambar, please? Would it sit safely on a 10'' shelf?

    Sound comes out mostly from one side. I guess that is the way it is made?

    They should have included an ethernet jack. Streaming 4k content over wifi doesn't work to well.

    Thanks for your informative and clear presentation, as ever. I will pick up this cute soundbar combo, possibly the sub-woofer too. Even though there was no speech demo on the device I am counting on your expert opinion that I'll be blown away.

    Small rooms as in kids, office and kitchen is the Best areas for this. And as he says adjust sound in setup.
    I enjoy mine in the kitchen listening with bass boost music while I cook…
