Great sound quality
The sound quality is above expected for this soundbar as it was on the cheaper end of things. Very easy to set up and use. Does turn off after a certain amount of time with no sound which can be a little annoying when you've left your show on pause for a bit.
I purchased this unit for my son for Christmas, very easy to setup with HDMI cable (not supplied) and connects via Bluetooth also. Not knowing much my son had this connected in seconds and the sound is amazing. He connects his phone via Bluetooth and can play his music from his phone very loudly. The sound is clear and crisp with nice bass tones even when turned up to max. I would recommend paying a little more for the 3.1 its great.
Good unit for the price
Having looked for a while I found this unit on Kogan.com
It was one of the mid-priced units and had good specs. All in all it does the job with good quality sound - but the sub is quite weak, and there is no "self start" function - i.e. when you turn the TV on, even though it is connected via optical cable, you have to press another button to get it going
although i am fairly satisfied with the performance of this unit , I have one concern. I feel the unit should self start or initiate the previous settings when a signal is received in the morning instead of having to use two remotes to turn the tv on an the other remote to turn the sound on, annoying
Good entry level soundbar
I bought this soundbar as an upgrade to the built-in speakers on my TV (TCL UHD E5900). I wanted something with 3.1 channels, and I wasn't concerned about having a wireless subwoofer. The sound quality is good but not incredible, although it can go very loud without compromising this quality. You can connect through almost any method (Bluetooth, HDMI, 3.5mm jack, optical, coaxial, USB) although only an optical cable is supplied. It can also play FM radio. There are a number of pre-set options including Voice, Music, and Surround, as well as the ability to manually adjust the bass/treble levels.
The soundbar can take a full 8-12 seconds to turn on (optical connection), and several times I have found myself adjusting back and forth between different settings and volumes when watching TV shows/movies in order to find something I'm satisfied with. Overall a solid unit, but nothing spectacular or ground-breaking.
