    The sound quality is excellent, when it works. I'm constantly getting an Alexa message telling me I have no internet connection. You have to go through the setup process every time. Sound bar has great audio performance but the integrated Alexa dot is kind of a useless annoyance

    I bought this soundbar in-store along with a couple TVs and was excited to use it as I have several Amazon Echos already and lots of smart home devices that work with it. This system was pushed very hard by the home theater "expert" working there. First thing I noticed after linking with my Amazon account is that the microphone array on the Command Bar would require that I was literally six inches from the speaker or yelling at it to even get alexa to respond. I tried a couple things like rebooting and whatnot thinking it could just be a fluke but I never could resolve that problem. The biggest issue I had was that I could not get it working AT ALL with multiple TVs, using multiple connection types including HDMI ARC, optical, and both HDMI ARC and optical together as was oddly suggested by the manual. When I finally somehow got sound to come out of the bar from my televisions it was INSANELY quiet even turned up to full volume. I ensured that my TVs were not set to variable audio and they were in fact set to fixed so that was not the issue. I went back to the store this morning and returned it and instead bought the Samsung HW-N450 and it blows the Polk Command Bar out of the water on sound, both highs and lows, and was $20 cheaper! While the Polk Command Bar is a great concept, the actual execution of the product is horrible. I wouldn't recommend this thing to my worst enemy.
