Good value overall. Better sound than from our 46" LED LCD TV. OK for casual music listening. Dialog is clearer. Nice bass. Cleaning up the sound profile took a while. Rated it down a star fot the irritation of having to run down a button cell battery before I could turn the thing on, because, unlike EVERY SINGLE OTHER remote bundled in an electronic purchase in the past five years or more, THIS had no battery for the remote, and NATURALLY it was a format not as common as the ordinary AA or AAA batteries in many remotes. Aggravation: unnecessary, ESPECIALLY since the remote is the ONLY means of turning the device on. Not cool. Still, once I dug up a battery for the remote and got the balance dialed in, it's adequate for the medium-sized (13'X20') room it's in and does correct the problem of the wimpy TV speakers' poor reproduction of dialog in TV and movies. NOTE: all our sound reproduction in this room is now funneled through this soundbar via the digital audio connection from the TV, since all other video and audio (streaming video, mp3s, CDs and DVDs) are relayed through the TV via HDMI from the connected media center PC. As I said, music reproduction is OK for casual listening, and since I have better means of reproduction for "serious" music listening, that's just fine b y me.
