This was ridiculously easy to set up. This literally has 2 cables to connect: one for power, the other to connect out to the TV, either using standard white and red stereo audio cables or a 3.5mm style "head phone" cable. I prefer the red and white analog cables although my TV has both. If you can't figure that out, just go back to a tv with knobs and rabbit ears on it. It was out of the box and ready to use in no more than 5 minutes. Reading some of the other (see: poor) reviews was a bit misleading for me. It's a great product, and I'm baffled as to why some people had a hard time with it. The audio quality is great for a small unit. It's not exactly a bass-heavy powerhouse, but the lows are low, highs are not tinny. I didn't hear any distortion on either end of the spectrum. My sound bar is connected to a 32" Bravia I purchased about 2 (maybe 3?) years ago. I use it in my den with a DVD player, an Xbox 360, and a Wii console. I also listen to a wide variety of music (everything spanning metal, hip hop, classical, etc) and as a musician I'm pretty critical of sound equipment. I hooked it up, cranked some music, and played a few video games to hear a decent range and variety of sounds to make sure I was pleased. It's loud enough, strong enough for average day to day use in a small to average sized home/apartment/condo. It's a nice slim unit; I used it to replace a 5.1 surround system just to save space and get rid of superfluous wiring, and this sounds better. I prefer lots of bass, so I may reconnect a subwoofer later, but this a great buy that provides much fuller sound than an ordinary average sized TV speaker. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a sound set up for a large living room or with a tv much larger than 32-40", but most people should be pleased. Hope you find this review helpful.
