    Bought this along with the 900F 65" TV as a package deal. Figured this would be better matched electronically being the same brand. A little overpriced compared to others but splurged anyway. Really nice sound. Friends wish they had a sound bar.

    Sound went out, & unable to fix over the phone. Two week wait for Geek Squad to come out to see what happened. A phone number was given, but it isn't set up for messages. Brand new everything & there's no sound--3 days now.

    I replaced my old Sony sound bar with this. It has a lot more power and sounds really good. Much better than my old 150 watt system. The only con is it occasionally goes muffles the sound when someone gets up off the couch for some reason.

    I like the sound bar - it does the job. However it isn't as spectacular as the in store display was. The volume has to be turned up to loud on the TV for all 4 of the speakers to come on. If you want the volume soft, it doesn't give the full range of sounds.

    Purchased this for my living room. I have vaulted ceilings, so I don’t quite get the full immersive audio experience. However, it still sounds great plenty of base. However, rest of the system doesn’t get quite loud enough. Definitely get the optional rear speakers.

    Good basic home theater system If you need a system with Good sound and music reproduction along with excellent ability to hear conversational Interactions on TV this is an excellent and relatively inexpensive choice

    Was a little difficult to figure out how to set up, with there were better instructions. With a little hep from YouTube was able to figure it out without calling support. Let’s just say I’m glad I don’t work in IT!

    I have a SONOS system with sub and I bought this system for the basement. If you have the extra cash and if it is a system you will use a lot get the SONOS with base otherwise this is a decent option.

    I don’t have the rear boxes only audio bar/subwoofer. The audio is not synchronized sometimes and it had a weird configuration that from 10 and 10 min it would set its volume for 33. After resetting it, the auto volume set stopped though. Nice design, easy to clean.

    I got this not only because it is surround sound but because I’m simply did not want to turn my TV volume so high. That has to be at 0 when you are using this. Easy to use, sounds excellent.

    Got a new soundbar to go with our new tv. Worked great but then stopped working. Had to return it for a new one. So far no issues with this one. The external Bluetooth speakers are kind of a pain to pair up if they get disconnected.

    Sounds great. Only drawback is it doesn't seem to work as seamlessly with Sony TV as it should. Not sure if problem with sound bar or tv. Sometimes it doesn't switch to sound bar and sometimes it does

    I was not able to give out 5 stars because of the set-up sheet. I have a dish box and had a lip-sync problem until I used the HDMI (ARC) input through the speaker to the tv. love it now.

    This is a very good soundbar. It has a vertical sound that simulates a 7.1 and works fine. But the sound quality could be a bit better. Maybe if it had tweeters and the subwoofer worked with low frequency's could be much better.

    This sounded great. Wireless sub connected with no effort. Was not happy that it had no on screen display. Also there was a major delay when turning up or down the volume through the Sony TV’s ARC connection via HDMI.

    Great sounding speaker, but you need to purchase the 300 dollar rear speakers to really enjoy it. I love it but wish it had real upfiring speakers for a better experience.

    Top of the line pricing, however expected a little bit louder for $900 price tag. I just copped the $300 rear speaker add on. Hopefully it’ll be all the way yammin when they’re hooked in too.

    Sounds great but u definitely need volume up to enjoy features of Dolby atmos.. Adding the rear speakers isnt needed but definitely makes a difference

    So far, we really like this unit and feel we are getting a better sound than we did with the ZVOX. I really like that it is plug and play and no complicated installation.

    This sound bar was a little expensive for my taste, but we tried it anyhow. It ended up being a pretty good choice, but maybe could have done as well with a less expensive model.
