Vizio High Definition Sound Bar has four inputs

When I bought my Vizio television two years ago, I wasn’t totally impressed with the sound. Yet purchasing the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar has made a world of difference to my ears. If your room isn’t a good fit for total surround sound or you want to upgrade your high definition television without sacrificing space, consider the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar as a great option.

Vizio High Definition Sound Bar: Slim Fit

My favorite aspect about the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar is the slim fit. High definition televisions are already a great space saver on an entertainment center; but this sound bar tops the cake because it’s about 4 feet long yet only five inches wide. I can run connecting wires right underneath my television and still have space for a telephone and other objects. My entertainment center is in a room that opens up to other rooms, hence making it a challenge to hook up a six speaker surround sound without running wires all across the room. But the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar lets me have upgraded sound quality without the complications.

Vizio High Definition Sound Bar Audio Quality

The Vizio High Definition Sound Bar lives up to its name: high definition quality. While it doesn’t support an HDMI input, there is a connection for digital audio which is a notch or two down. Regardless, my sound is crisp and clear, with distinct channel separation. I only have to turn it up two or three levels to fill up my room. I also get a good response from the connection to my subwoofer, completely filling out my sound profile. There are also two input options for standard left/right audio plugs if you want to hook up additional systems to your Vizio High Definition Sound Bar

Vizio High Definition Sound Bar Additional Features

The Vizio High Definition Sound Bar also boasts a sound leveling feature called TruSurround that’s supposed to prevent the extreme high and low volume shifts when commercials come on. It doesn’t eliminate the problem completely but I notice a definite improvement. If you watch a lot of older movies that weren’t recorded in high definition, the True High Definition option also automatically equalizes the sound. My biggest complaint about the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar is that you have to point the tiny remote directly at the right corner of the speaker for operation. Otherwise you will find yourself frustrated trying to turn on the power or make those option selections. It would have also been nice for the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar to have an automatic shut off.

Barring those negative aspects, the Vizio High Definition Sound Bar is a worthy option to upgrade your high definition television’s audio capability.
