If you’re just starting out in trying to come up with the perfect home theater system, the two most important parts would probably be the television, and the sound system. Of course, what would be a home entertainment system without a large-screen television? For the movie enthusiast, nothing is better than enjoying your favorite movie in high-definition quality right within the comforts of your own home. Your home theater would also be deemed incomplete if you cannot find a sound system that would meet your demands of high-quality sounds that would be compatible with the crystal-clear video delivered by your television. So, are you still looking for that perfect audio system? We suggest the VIZIO S5451w-C2 Home Theater Soundbar.
Unlike other sound bars in the market that only offers a singular sound bar, this welcome audio device actually comes in 4 separate speakers. You have the sound bar itself, measuring at an impressive 53.74” in length, 4.18” in height and 3.15” in depth. It is also accompanied by a wireless subwoofer and 2 rear satellite speakers that measures 8.5” tall. As for the design itself, it is quite stylish yet simple with its smooth black exterior. Due to its size, as well as the number of speakers, it is very much suitable for those who have large televisions measuring 55” or more. It is also meant for those who live in homes with large spaces.
Large sound systems also come with plenty of specifications. Despite the size, connecting this system to the television is rather easy with its single optical cable. Other wired inputs include dual HDMI inputs. Bluetooth connectivity also comes into play with this beauty. Simply stream your music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or PC via Bluetooth within minutes and spend endless hours listening to your favorite audio in high-definition. There is no display screen on the speaker itself, so you would have to rely on the remote control with its built-in display, meaning you get instant visual feedback while adjusting various settings.
Now, this is a sound bar made for big sounds. Due to its long sound bar, it is able to deliver excellent audio with a wider separation for a front virtual surround sound experience. This 5.1-channel system also features a central audio channel meant for delivering clearer dialogues. The wireless subwoofer is also able to deliver powerful bass sounds without distortion, thus adding depth to your listening experience. One minor downside is that even if the system includes 2 additional rear satellite speakers, they are connected via wires to the subwoofer. However, together, these 4 components—the sound bar, wireless subwoofer and rear satellite audio systems— offer you a precise delivery of crystal-clear, dynamic sounds that fully immerse you in a surround-sound experience that only a 5.1-channel sound system is capable of. Various state-of-the-art sound technologies, such as Dolby Digital, DTS Digital Surround, DTS TruVolume and VIZIO Surround Matrix, provide you with a more in-depth listening experience unlike any other.
In conclusion, this amazing sound system is not for the faint-hearted. It delivers powerful sounds and clear audio that is suitable for the avid audiophile.
