Crisp, clear, & cleanest sound ever from a SB
This is by far the cleanest sounding SB I have ever heard. It is amazing. (It costs A LOT, so it should) i have no complaints. I originally bought a Yamaha Musiccast 400 SB, but returned it after everything sounded muffled. If you are paying over $500 for a soundbar, it should have some serious sound it. The DT SA is the best sounding device ever. I hear things on the tv that I have never heard before. Slow breathing, dress shoes clanking...unreal, hard to explain. I LOVE THIS SOUNDBAR! I wish it was DTSx/Atmos capable and offered a rear speaker option, but again nothing lost on this. I'd rather have this and give the others up. The DT Studio Advance imo is the best on the market.

I bought this a month ago, it replaced a 5.1 surround sound system, it took a while to adjust to the new sound but that was expected, i am still missing the rear speakers which i hope Def Tech can come up with an up grade to where rears can be paired with this soundbar, all in all sounds and looks great not to mention no more clutter.

Good bar
This is the bar to get if you want clarity and good looks. This sounded better than LG, Samsung, Sonos, and Bose. However, not as emersive. DT must add rear speaks, Atmos, and ability to add a second sub in future systems. I believe there is a market for a system at the 2k price point. Klipsch is releasing a new system in Q4, which looks interesting on YouTube.
