I received this as a present for Christmas. I have it hooked up to a 37 television and the unit instantly changed the room with the sound from the soundbar and sub. It sounds great and highly recommend it. the sub does not overpower the soundbar, they both compliment each other very well!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
