Sounds great
This sound bar has really improved the audio quality of our Sony Bravia tv. Even news programs sound so much better. Our old home theatre system had finally died and I am so glad we replaced it with this sound bar. We may even get the back speakers for it later.

Good when it works.
I bought this several month ago to pair with my Sony 75” X950G because that is what I was recommended. We get it home and set it up super easy and no problems. Then a few days go buy and it will not pair to the TV and there is no sound being put out. It would switch to Tv and audio system and the would say that audio system is unavailable. We called Magnolia and they said to bring it back since it was only a week so we are now on our second system. We have still had trouble with the sound being put out to the system. It has trouble connecting off of any thing we use to watch Tv. I will have to turn the system off. Then unplug the hdmi from the sound bar then turn the tv back on and plug it back in then change it in the setting to the audio system and it only works sometimes. So I have no clue what to do but for the price it should not be messing up!!!!

my favorite soundbar, because of the possible rear speakers. The 3.1 is amazing and the control over the center channel is refreshing.

Good But some Issues
I purchased this SB 2 weeks ago from Best Buy. When I first Power on TV (Sony A9G) and Sound bar the Input settings from SB comes on with "TV" not HDMI 1 with my Tivo. I have HDMI cable from sound bar (ARC) to TV (ARC) and the other HDMI input into back of HDMI 1 port with back of TV. Also have a PS3 connected to back of HDMI 2 port of Sound bar. On the TV Inputs I see 3 HDMI inputs connected (ARC, Player 1 & Player ) I tried setting the TV input to say "Player 1" but the next day it goes back to HDMI 3 (eARC/ARC) Is this correct? Should the HDMI Input always be using HDMI 3 (eARC/ARC)? Also Firmware of both TV and SB are up to date.

Sound disappears-TV restart needed-Great sound
I purchased this sound bar along with XBR65950G and have both of them since 6 months now. The sound is amazing from the sound bar.
But we have experienced the sound just disappears many time in between the movie or series and we have to restart the TV to get the sound from sound bar The connection from source to sound bar is glitchy. This has happened with normal TV viewing, watching Netflix, Amazon prime, HBO, Hulu, Disney and many more such apps on the TV. The sound of the sound bar is amazing. But this issue of sound going completely out and needing to restart the TV in the middle is very frustrating. Hope Sony does something about this issue.

Best for Small Living Room Experience
Bought this as open box from best buy, hesitate to buy at first, now its one year old, I'm glad my purchase was good.This sounds great, when you turn on vertical surround, sounds way different. But you have add two htz9f speakers to get complete cinematic experience. Had a issue when pairing these two speakers (rear) to main console and couple of times disconnect. After software upgrade seems this issue was fixed.

Make sure you followed the guidelines as shown in the TV, for first time setup. If you have a perfect distance btw your main and rear speakers, you will feel the difference.

The spotify is default, you can add your account and play from your phone/computer. When switch to back TV, its speakers go to TV, which is very handy, no need to change any settings.

Noticed, sound experience is differences in some apps, may be depends on apps that your are using. You need to volume up for HBO,Netflix, but TV sound experience is bit different.

Overall decent buy!
