    "One of the best soundbars under 200. Great overall sound with powerful bass considering its size. 2 tweeters, 2 woofers, and 2 subwoofers for this price and size is amazing."

    "Great sound with the inclusion of that sub that makes it a good option outside of just movies and games. My music actually sounds good on this as well. That power save mode is a little annoying though."

    "This has more of a 3.1 channel setup as voices have their own dedicated center channel. Not having to deal with speaker wires is such a convenience and you can even upgrade it to a 5.1 setup down the line if you want to."

    "A decent option to replace your TV's built-in speakers. The amount of bass that this thing pumps out is good. It may be a bit much depending on the scene as the bass can bleed into the mids occasionally."
