  • Acoustic Research All-In-One Virtual Surround Spea
    Verified Purchase

    Easy hook-up, attractive design. Being used in a small bedroom where it works fine. 3D 'effect' doesn't seem to do much of anything. Subwoofer more than adequate for our room, though there's an output for a separate subwoofer if desired. Wanted something more than the speakers that came with the TV and this does the job.

  • Perfect for my needs

    It's a pretty simple system with rich, dynamic sound--way better than my built-in flatscreen HDTV speakers (which blew the first week!)--and affordable and cool looking. And it's got it's own amp so you don't need to run it through your stereo system, which is perfect for me because I prefer stereo to surround when I listen to music. The subwoofer sounds great, and there's a subwoofer out port if you need more of a rumble for a sci-fi movie. Oh, and also it's shorter than it says here--just 32". I use it in conjunction with my TV speakers. That way I can keep them down low so they won't blow and get great movie sound turning up the AR system. The downside is it does not have a built in equalizer, so your stuck with just two "effect" settings, but they're fine for me.

  • Exceeds expectations!
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this for surround sound without all those speakers of the home entertainment systems because we are limited on space. It was easy to install and sits nicely in front of our TV, when people come over they are amazed at the great sound. Satellite music channels are exceptionally crisp and you can add more bass when necessary. This Sound Bar is worth every Pennie!

  • Don't Waste Your Money on This Product
    Verified Purchase

    Even though this product was slightly more expensive than I wanted to pay, I purchased it anyway based upon the previous reviews. I'm disaappointed that the previous reviewers were not completely honest. The sound on this product is mediocre at best. The size of the sound bar is nice in that it's not too burdensome, but for the price, I expected more. Further, while setting the time, I discovered that the manufacturer designed this product for military time only. Any product sold in the U.S. should have the option of displaying standard time. Finally, not only is the display small and difficult to see at night, it is so bright that if placed in a bedroom, it would disturb one's sleep. In a nutshell, find another, cheaper product.

  • Dont think twice
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this after looking into various types of speaker bars. Didnt want to go for the expense of some others and wanted a built in subwoofer. After reading the reveiws and checking the specs I figured I would try it out. plus the price was right. Out of the box I was impressed with the asthetics. Very sleek and unobtrusive. Matched the gloss on my samsung plasma perfectly. Also very light for what it is. Hook up was a breeze. To hang on the wall I purchased two black brackets that are hidden behind the T.V. so you dont see them. Turning on the unit I noticed a dramatic difference from my T.V. speakers right away. After a few slight adjustments I was amazed at what this inexpensive speaker system could do. Now three things that brought my features rating to three stars. The remote is sooo small and kind of cheap ( but for the price something has to give) No rear mounting holes, so if you want to hang on the wall you must use brackets. No HDMI hookups only analog. I dont think on a unit like this that a HDMI would make much of a difference anyway. Overall this product is very good. For the price it cant be beat. very happy with purchase.
