Good sound but not as good as it's big brother
I purchased this along with the 500 sub and was underwhelmed to say the least it had decent sound for about a day then stopped sending audio through the hdmi input and I tried everything to get it to connect and nothing. Had to use optical which isnt my preferred choice. For being such a expensive sound bar youd expect everything to work perfect. Long story short I returned the bar for a refund tried returning the sub but was expected to pay 50$ for shipping which didnt make it worth all the hassle. Kept the sub and got the bigger soundbar.
