Outstanding Sound Bar For the Price - Just Buy It
After spending a ridiculous amount of time researching sound bars online, I went into my local Best Buy to listen to them, but of course the majority of displays weren't functional, this one included. After speaking with two guys (store managers) who had no clue what they were talking about (optical provides the same quality as HDMI), I spoke with a guy who was highly knowledgeable and said this was the best sound bar at this price point and was the only one that offered multiple HDMI inputs (which unquestionably provides the best sound). I did listen to theSony HTCT380 300W 2.1-Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, and like many of those reviews stated, it was extremely quiet, even when maxed out. He assured me this model would be much better overall.
I made the purchase, brought it home, and immediately set it up (took 10min) and ran through a couple of action Blu-rays to make sure it had a decent sound. The next night I watched The Martian and Jurassic World on Blu-ray and knew this was a keeper. The dialog was clear, the action sections were explosive but not muddled or overpowering.
I love the ability to adjust the sub from the remote. I did listen to some music and wasn't that impressed, but personally, I'll never use it as a stereo replacement, that's what Sonos is for. I'm extremely confident in my purchase and would highly recommend.
