    I was looking for a new sound bar and stumbled upon this beast of a device. The price scared me and made me think would it be worth it. I can honestly say this is one heck of sound bar device! You can hear and feel the sounds. Watched a racing movie and I could hear every engine roar on by and felt like I was on the set of the movie watching or live. This was definitely a good investment and easy to use. 3 wires and the app set up is simple and great. Paired with my remote so I can use the app to change volume or the remote. The night time mode helps me make sure those sleeping are not disturbed by the rumbles of this sound bar. Recommend to anyone looking to take their leisure time to the next level!

  • Works with optical connection; not networked

    Great sound direct from the TV. The network connection drops out. I have tried several configurations and settled on 2 Sonos Boosts with 12 Sonos speakers on a dedicated network; speakers continually drop in and out. I would not recommend as a networked device. Also there are software update issues. I was in the middle of watching a movie and the speaker stopped playing over an optical connection, went to the app to check the speaker, and was required to update the software; speaker was fine after the update.
