Soundbar itself is high quality and feels very nice. You definitely get what you pay for and it's still the best soundbar for gaming, computer desk etc. even in 2020 !

Very pleased thus far 10/12/2019 12:38:13 AM

Overall Review: Works *very* well. I do appreciate that it'll automatically go into a sort of "standy mode" after a while, when I'm not actively listening anything, watching videos, or playing a game.

The one wish I have, was that I could easily set up the LEDs for "Concert" mode, to act like an old visualizer, and change along with the beat.

Decent Product but with lots of draw backs 8/14/2019 1:37:21 PM

Pros: - Very Loud
- Decent sound quality

Cons: - Loud popping noise
- Muffled sound occasionally
- Unusable bluetooth

Overall Review: - This is a pretty decent speaker. It could be compared to other high end speakers that aren't bose or jbl but it still packs a punch. Although, the bluetooth connectivity is sub par. While using the optical source, a loud popping noise is made when a new video (netflix episode, thumbnail autoplay, youtube video) comes on. I would not recommend this speaker solely because its defects make it a seemingly unusable product. I've already gone through the replacement procedure but even the replacement had these same defects. Go the extra mile, spend the extra 50 bucks and don't be stuck with something broken.

Best speaker in world wide! 5/11/2019 11:59:49 PM

Pros: The 7.1 virtual felt almost as i had an actual 7.1 speaker set. The subwoofer is seriously small and skinny but it performes much better than my old giant subwoofer.

Cons: So far i do not see anything bad.
