What customers say about "Key Specs"
VIZIO SB3621n-E8M 2.1 Sound Bar System, Black
  • Sound quality is superior to the basic TV speaker as expected. It provides much more base response and the voice audio is much clearer in movies.
  • Overall, we are very happy with the soundbar and the affordable price.
  • This soundbar although not the most powerful produces great sound and offers all of the essential features.
  • Sound is obviously subjective but to me the mids and highs are accurate with no distortion even at higher volumes.
  • After playing with the bass levels a little you can get great depth and response with none of the obnoxious boominess.
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • Its bass extension boosts low bass levels for a remarkable powerful sound.
  • Powerful wireless subwoofer rocks.
  • It had a great sound and was well powered.
  • It sounds really fantastic at higher volumes, but at lower volumes certain frequencies noticeably clip in and out, which is annoying.
  • Yamaha quality, Almost perfect, but the low frequency crossover is right in the middle of the speech range... hearing voices pop in and out of the sub mid sentence is jarring.
  • Basically, the bass crossover frequency falls right smack in the middle of the frequencies used by dialogue voices.

  • Installation was relatively easy. Everything was pretty straightforward and it comes with a couple cable options so you can choose which you prefer.
  • This Vizio sound bar is a snap to install, and the sound is excellent.
  • The more I've gotten used to it, the more I notice how much it enhances my audio quality. Movies really sound fantastic on it.
  • I did not notice a significant improvement in sound because I still do not hear some dialogue in films.
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • It comes with wireless subwoofer for dynamic sound.
  • Easy, straightforward setup. Simple update procedure via USB stick.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
VIZIO SB3621n-E8M 2.1 Sound Bar System, Black
  • The set up was extremely easy. I used the included optical wire, which connected with one click into the TV, and one into the soundbar.
  • The Vizio sound bar was extremely easy to connect to my TV - only a few minutes using the digital cable that came with the Sound Bar.
  • Connecting the optical cord was easy, but using the included remote control was a bit less intuitive.
  • The unit makes it really easy to play music as well. Simply hold the Bluetooth bottom on the remote and you'll soon find your phone asking for permission to connect.
  • Auto detect for inputs wont find the optical connection so I have to manually switch inputs.
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • You have to connect to Bluetooth and then you can fire up the app and select Clear Voice and 3d Surround and you will be all set!
  • It transmits 4K HDR video. There is an ARC-HDMI output jack.
  • My only let down and reason for 3 stars is because the subwoofer sounds under powered while playing music thru Bluetooth.
  • The only drawback that I see - lack of Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Did NOT come with a HDMI cable.
