Wireless HD Audio

VIZIO's High Definition Wireless Audio allows you to experience your home audio from anywhere in your home. This surround sound home theater package includes a wireless subwoofer with a solid wood enclosure that works wirelessly up to 60 feet away with a clear line of sight.

SRS TruSurround HD

SRS TruSurround HD makes every seat in the room sound like your own personal movie theater or concert hall. Mind-blowing sound is the result of explicit dialog clarity, immersive surround sound, improved bass and high frequency precision using only the speakers in your TV, or enhancing the experience further with the VIZIO sound bar.

SRS TruVolume

The number-one complaint of television viewers is the up-and-down volume experienced during commercial breaks. SRS TruVolume solves this annoying problem by analyzing the signal and adjusting the volume based on how the human ear perceives sound. You simply need to set the volume to your desired level once, then sit back and relax.

The rear speakers are wired to the sub and the sub is wirelessly connected to the sound bar.

The people I talked with at Vizio tech support were reading to me the same words I had all ready read in the manual that came with the product.
Pat Logan
Vizio refuses to acknowledge the problem only wanting to send out a replacement (that's also defective)or issue a refund.

I purchased the Vizio VHT510 from Costco about 2 weeks ago. I set it up right away, however I haven't mounted the rear surrounds yet. It works great and the sound quality is better than you could reasonably expect for a sound system at this price point. It is great not to have to run wires and still get 5.1 surround. It looks neat and clean and not at all cheap or shoddy like one might expect with a sound system just barely over $300.00.

I have just a couple of concerns. As per the previous review, there is only a single optical input. I currently have it connected to my 50 inch Samsung plasma; it would be really nice to have a couple more optical inputs even if the price went up a notch. My more serious concern is with the LED lights on the sound bar; they are supposed to light up when changing the volume up or down indicating the sound level. Unfortunately it doesn't work at least half the time. The volume still changes, but it is concerning when something is not working as it is supposed to on a brand new electronic device. I have seen other complaints about this very same issue on message boards such as AVS forum. My heart dropped when my brand new sound system started doing that very same thing a few days ago. Some have returned/replaced the sound bar only to have this feature be as unreliable with the second unit. I can't deal with reboxing and returning it so I just hope that it continues to work as it has and that this issue does not turn into something else that effects the actual function of the sound system. It would be great if Vizio could address this problem since it is not an isolated incidence.

Addendum:

I finally returned the Vizio 510 to Costco today. The LED volume indicator completely stopped working.

So I purchased 3 Vizio VHT510's from my local Costco,,, had to return ALL of them because the LED's lights quit working.

Reviews on AVS, SamsClub, Costco and here at Amazon all complain about the LED's not working,, this is a widespread problem that is affecting both the VHT210 and VHT510 Vizio soundbars, and its not just a few of them,,, it seems to be all of them.

Even when I returned all my VHT510's at Costco the manager told me they have been getting these returned in great numbers because of the lights going out.

I wanted to buy another one as I really do like the VHT510, so I decided to call Vizio to ask them if they had fixed the probelm yet,,,, Vizio's response,,,, there is not a problem with the LED's and if there is it is only a few of their soundbars,,, after I told them of all the negitive reviews they still denied there was a problem.

I dont think I have ever laughed so hard,,,, WOW,, really Vizio,,,, no problems with the LED's going out,,,, ya know, if Vizio would have said yea, there is a problem and we are working on it I would have had total respect for Vizio,, but to totaly denie any problems what-so-ever,,, that just made me laugh,, and mad at the same time.

I guess Vizio does not know that this little thing called the "internet" exist, where people talk about things and read reviews.

Cheers
Davyo

This is my second Vizio soundabr. I have a VSB210WS in my LR because my wife wants less "stuff", but I want more. I have always been impressed with the sound of the VSB210WS.
So impressed, I bought my Dad on last year for Christmas to replace a Bose unit he had that I thought was horrible and he has been thrilled since day one.

I have a den/man cave with a 65 flat screen that's "MY" room to do with as I please, but have also grown to like "less" but still want more. I had purchased a Sony HT-IS100 BRAVIA true 5.1 system and was really never quite happy. Center channel audio was very weak, bass just as bad. So when I heard about the new Vizio VHT510 to be released I was excited. It arrived Friday and I had it up and running in 30 minutes. BLOWS THE SONY AWAY!!!!! Watched 4 football games yesterday like I was there, then popped in Saving Private Ryan last night and as far as I was concerned, the bullets where wizzing by my head!!!

The only issue I have ever had with the Vizio soundbars was the single Optical input as I prefer to get my audio signal direct from the source not the TV as Vizio suggest (DishHD DVR,Sammy Blu-Ray, Roku unit), so I just use a 3 way optical splitter that that is remote controlled to solve the problem. Once all programmed into my Harmony 1100 all works without issue.

If I have one area I would improve, its the supplied remote, kinda chintzy but since I won't be using it, I really don't care.

This sounbar ROCKs! If you want great sound, want to go easy on your pocket....... you can't go wrong with this setup. I couldn't be happier.

UPDATE* Soundbar levels indicators having same issue as review below. That's the great thing about Amazon, no questions asked I have a replacement being delivered today and will return the defective unit.

I really like this sound bar. The rear speakers are wired to the sub and the sub is wirelessly connected to the sound bar. I had the same problem with the LED's after 1 day. A call to Vizio support fixed the problem. Just disconnect power to the sound bar and press the power button on the sound bar for 1 minute. Then reconnect the power and the LED's work again. If it were not for this I would have rated it 5 stars. Also it is $50 less at Walmart .com. Sound is not audiophile quality but close enough to impress. Works better on movies than music and eliminates running wires all around your room. Definitely worth the price.
