Our home was prewired for 4 speakers when we bought this home we we figured we should use them. I don't know what surround sound is supposed to sound like, and I'm sure I dont have our speakers configured exactly as it should be to our receiver, but no matter, we LOVE watching movies now.
The sound on this system is pretty amazing. Wasn't quite sure how much sound it would put out bc of the smaller speakers but it's so crisp and clear and we just love it in our theater room.
Needed a new sound system option after moving this year as my 10-yr old receiver did not really fit the setup of our new home. Researched soundbars and learned that Vizio seemed to be very popular and highly rated. Debated whether to go w/ the 3.1 or 5.1 system, but ultimately chose the 5.1 since we have endtables positioned perfectly to set the satellite speakers on. Setup was a cinch. The system came with ALL possible input cords. I chose the optical cable as my TV's HDMI inputs were already occupied. The satellite speakers were smaller than expected, which actually was a good thing. They came with their own wiring which is run from the subwoofer. I estimate the wires are about 20'-25' in length which is somewhat limiting, but fit our space pretty well. I am sure you can purchase extensions if needed. Bluetooth pairing was also very easy. I have used the system for about 3 weeks now and have not had any issues. Very pleased with it as the satellite speakers really enhance the sound and it certainly is a more efficient version of my old AV receiver.
