I've noticed that there aren't many helpful reviews for this product so decided to add my two cents worth. I have a Hitachi Platinum 42 inch Flat panel led TV that is open on the rear to the kitchen area of my home and a lot of the sound was escaping into the kitchen area and further into the bedroom area which was annoying the wife when she was reading, and I was watching TV. I decided to install a surroundbar so that the sound would project itself into the living room (10 X 14). I didn't want a subwoofer because of the heavy bass that they produce. My observations on the performance of this soundbar are as follows: Crystal clear audio with more bass than I need (had to crank the bass way down). Easy setup. Easy to follow owners manual and straightforward instruction on how to program your remote. I must emphasize that if you follow the instructions to a T, when programming your remotes you will have no problems. You must first program your original TV remote and then your Satellite remote in that order. I have noticed that some people have said that they get no visual indication on the TV screen when using the volume up or down or mute. My TV screen visually shows all of these function with numerical values when they are being adjusted. This sound bar has more than met my expectations and I find it very easy to recommend. One further note, the sound bar doesn't process Dolby Digital so even though a program is being received in that format, the bar will only output in the PCM mode which is 2 channel. I don't think it makes much difference for most people but for some it's probably a deal breaker. I am More than satisfied with my purchase!!
