Style Name: New Sound BarSize Name: 54-Inch
My daughter ordered this for me on her Amazon Prime account because I just had to have it by the weekend for a Carolina Panthers game watching get together at my house. I have a 70 inch Vizo E series and needed something big enough to match the screen size. I’ve always been a component guy and had my doubts about a Sound Bar Package, especially at this price. CNET rated it as best in class however so why not. Amazon, true to their word got it to me under my young’ns Prime account in just 2 days with free shipping! I think setting it up took less time than unpacking it. It was a real engineering marvel to get it all into that specially shaped box inside a box for sure! I have never seen so much Styrofoam.

Setup couldn’t have been easier. I set the bar in front of my TV, and then put the big sub in the back corner of the room. Nice long cables were provided to connect the rear satellite speakers to the sub. I put them behind my couch. When I powered up, the Sub paired automatically and it was ready to go. I connected to the HDMI ARC connector on my Vizio TV which was touted as the “best” option in the manual. Also provided were cables for either an optical, digital coax, or plain old school RCA connections. The beauty of having a Vizio TV however lies in using the HDMI ARC connection. Once I connected up, I simply had my TV automatically “discover” the sound bar and I was good to go. This allows my Vizio remote to control the Soundbar on/off/volume with my Vizio remote and an added bonus of an on screen display. Very nice. The sound bar also allows for programming other remotes, but I like having the same logo on both units.

So how did it sound?

Style Name: New Sound BarSize Name: 54-Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Whether evaluating presentation, performance, ease of operation, versatility, this Vizio Sound Bar is without a doubt one of the best you can get these days at this price level. It's a large sound bar plus subwoofer and satellite speakers set that support just about any type of 'wired' connection including HDMI out with ARC and can also pair and play off Bluetooth supporting devices such as phones or tablets.

Just to get it out of the way, I am going to start with the negatives, few as they are and will follow with a detailed description of what you are getting. So, here are the negatives:

- Partially wired. The satellite speakers are in fact wired to the subwoofer, probably a small price to pay for true surround.
- 5.1 surround, not 7.1 or 7.2. Yes, it's a sound bar, not a full surround speakers set.
- Can't play off USB thumb drives or SD cards directly. You will need some Bluetooth device for that.

And that's it, all the negatives I can think of so let me discuss the system overall.

PRESENTATION AND PACKAGING

As I noted above, this is a massive set and Vizio did an excellent job to get everything in a neatly organized box with all components clearly labeled and easy to locate. This is what's in the box:

∙ the 54" bar
∙ subwoofer
∙ 2 satellite speakers
∙ remote control and batteries
∙ cables: optical, stereo RCA 3.

Style Name: New Sound BarSize Name: 54-Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The evolution of the HTIB (Home Theater in a Box) product has seemingly reached it's zenith with this latest offering from Vizio.

Everything you need to enhance the sounds of your TV and movie viewing is in a rather large box shaped like a giant hedge trimmer! You get their venerable 54 inch Soundbar with all the latest features Vizio offers. It pairs wirelessly with the included Sub and 2 Satellite surrounds to make a perfectly functional 5.1 system.

Connection and operating instructions are clear and to the point. Everything came well packed and all units inside the box were in mint condition. Build quality is good and the entire system as a whole is attractive to look at. For what is basically an evolved HTIB system, this offering from Vizo pushes the limits of what you can expect both in features and in quality. It's good, really good.

While I readily admit to using a Klipsch/Denon 5.1 system in my main viewing room, the Vizio VIZIO S5451 system has found a home in our large guest bedroom. I would conservatively estimate this system could provide more than adequate sound levels for most homes and applications. While not audiophile quality, the sound is a giant leap forward from your HDTV speakers and any HTIB product I have ever used to date. It truly is a one box solution for all your home theater sound needs.

The Soundbar can decode most all of the current formats and even provide simulated surround encoding for stereo source material. The remote is well thought out and as included remotes go, it is very nice. Again, I admit to using a Harmony One Universal remote for all my remote needs, but the Vizio remote is a cut above most. It works well, looks nice and does everything you would hope it would do.
