    Default VIZIO VHT510 Wireless Home Theater System Review


    Step up to the Bar

    While we'd like to think that everyone who invests in a flat panel HDTV also spends a little extra for a decent sound system, the fact is that most HDTV owners simply rely on their TV's built-in speakers for their auditory enjoyment. And while TV picture quality generally trends upwards every year, the same cannot be said for TV sound. The thinner a TV gets, the less room it has for speakers, and speakers that lack the necessary cabinet volume tend to sound thin and anemic, with no bass and limited dynamic range.

    But many prospective surround sound system buyers are put off, not only by the price of a surround system, but by its complexity. People don't want to have to deal with the extra wires and complicated system set-up of a full-fledged surround system. Oh sure, there are affordable integrated HTiB (home theater in a box) systems, but these still usually require that you run a bunch of wires around the room to get sound to all of the speakers.

    I had this bar for a few weeks. Problem is the blue led lights that indicate volume change and eq settings go out on them. The LED failure rate is high. I'd guess hundreds hell maybe even thousands of bad units. Who knows but Vizio refuses to acknowledge it as a real problem. Basically saying shit happens and not all of them fail. My local Costco said they pulled the remaining stock off the floor because of all the returns.

    Otherwise it does sound good for what it is. I'd only put the JVC BA-3 ahead of it in the limited 5.1 soundbar market. The JVC has its own failure problems as well. Ended up returning both 5.1 bars after they failed within the first week of owning them.
