    "The bad is that the wireless sub doesn't produce a lot of bass or produce mid range sound and after my 2nd week of ownership the wireless subwoofer was stuck in standby mode and wouldn't work even after being connected to the sound bar securely as stated in the set up instructions manual I'm a little tech savvy so I was able to get the subwoofer reconnected to the sound bar but overall being a loyal Sony customer I did expect more...I have been a Sony fan since I was a kid, Sony never disappoints me, it a great small home theatre and I enjoy watching movies and tv with my wife, the sound is so amazing it makes you feel you are in theatre"

    "Despite the sound being Ok, I think having a readout window showing the modes the sound bar is in, is a helpful feature when making adjustments and would recommend looking for that feature when selection a sound bar...Over the past few years the quality of low end sounders have seemed to diminish, but I believe this is a good intro bar for someone that got a new TV with lacking speakers"

    "Now if you want to upgrade and you're not on a budget and you want a very wide surround sound, especially if you have a really large room then you might want to consider a different soundbar...So I spent time watching movies, listening to music, and playing video games and what I gathered is the soundbar produces great clarity with a lot of details in the mids and highs and has a great tight punchy bass which is a little on the leaner side"
