VIZIO VSB210WS
Designed as a complete audio solution with a wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere

Add home theater surround sound to any HDTV without the excess clutter of front and center speakers and excess wires. The subwoofer uses Wireless HD Audio at 2.4GHz to let you place the speaker anywhere in your home theater. This advanced sound bar system also includes a built-in amplifier and audio receiver to complete your home theater with all-in-one convenience.

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.

Overall, very happy, great value, and has definitely improved the experience.

Looked down and they had a Vizio sound bar that straddled the TV base perfectly as well as having a wireless SW and rear speakers.

I've heard the Comcast remote will work, but I am out of buttons to program on it.

Verified Purchase
I've tested sound bars from Sony, Yamaha, Philips, Samsung and Polk Audio. Was not able to find the Marantz and Denon models. These products encompass a wide range of price points. The one I bought was the Vizio: great sound and convenience at a price near the bottom of the range.

The wireless subwoofer is an amazing convenience. Its range is at least 20 feet, and it sounds terrific in a variety of placements.

I connected the soundbar to my HDTV console with an optical cable, which works extremely well with one caveat--to activate the audio, the TV must be set on a digital channel. After that, analog audio (including from a DVD player) comes through as normal. If you use the included conventional cable, no issues.

You have limited control options to tailor the sound, but that's to be expected at the price. Vizio uses SRS Labs' surround virtualization chip and also throws in its volume stabilizer to knock down loud commercial breaks. This is a cost sacrifice, as the Dolby and DTS HD audio codecs are much more expensive. No problem; the others sound thin, while the Vizio washes you with clear, powerful sound.

It's not true surround sound, but unlike some rivals, the audio experience isn't overly directional (sounds good throughout the room) and is much better than basic stereo. If you can't run wire through your walls to deploy full surround, this is a fine compromise.

I read all the reviews here, plus did my due diligence on the Internet. I have researched a 2.1 soundbar system for more than a year, and was unhappy that the Samsung HD-X810 was not highly recommended because it did not have a Blu-Ray player included and the soundbar did not have controls to shape or equalize the frequency bandwidth. I expected more for $800.

So, I waited for the much ballyhooed Samsung HD-8200 with a Blu-Ray player and wireless subwoofer (also $800) announced at the annual Consumer Electronic Show in January. First reviews of it are disappointing, so I decided after reviewing comments from Amazon and others about the Vizio Soundbar, to de-link my desire for an included Blu-Ray player from the soundbar package (since I already have a Blu-ray player), and buy the best working, and most affordable soundbar with wireless subwoofer on the market.

You won't get the extra features or linking to services like Pandora or Netflix with this Vizio soundbar, but I have an extra PC connected to my LCD PC connection and can stream both perfectly.

I haven't been disappointed. Like other with comments here, I found this soundbar to deliver impressive sound for the money. It's low-profile design and easy setup makes it a joy to setup (not withstanding a minor misunderstanding, I'll explain later).

I have a small media room and the sound fills the room nicely and the bass module or subwoofer fills out sub-frequencies under 50HZ nicely. This isn't a Bose system..nor is it a top of the line system. It's for those who simply want a good looking, easy to setup, nice sounding system at an affordable price (am I repeating myself?).

As a new owner of a Samsung LN55B640 HDTV I was disappointed with the tinny sound from the speakers. After researching the alternatives (subwoofer, soundbar system, 5.1 home theater system) I decided to try the Vizio Soundbar System and for me it's the perfect solution. The soundbar sits on the top shelf of the TV stand, under the HDTV, and the wireless powered subwoofer is on the floor to the left side. I used the included RCA cables for audio, but probably will buy a digital optical cable later.

The treble and mid-range are full and rich, and the subwoofer provides satisfying bass. It's not true surround sound, but fakes it pretty well, [...] it's an incredible value. Using the little remote control (included) you can adjust the soundbar volume, and then adjust the subwoofer volume. On the right side of the soundbar is the IR "eye" for the remote, as well as nine LEDs. The six white LEDs display the volume (both overall and subwoofer, depending on which one you are adjusting), the red LED indicates that the soundbar and subwoofer are linked up (there is also a little LED on the subwoofer front), and the two blue LEDs indicate that the TVVOL (controlling commercial loudness) and the SRS (simulated surround) are engaged.

As shipped from Vizio, the IR "eye" and LED panel is covered by a sticky-backed grey foam pad. This dims the LEDs, but also has the effect of masking the IR "eye", and making it difficult to use the remote. After carefully removing the black soundbar grill, I gently pried off the sticky-back foam and, presto, problem solved. Now I can use the remote to change the soundbar volume from any seating position, and the LEDs are clearly visible (they wink off seconds after making any volume changes).

Although [...] rates the Sony soundbar system a notch above this one, I would disagree, having listened to them both. The Vizio is as good or better than the Sony competitor, but at under [...], you really cannot go wrong with either one.

I bought the VSB210WS and Sony KDL-46VL160 LCD TV (on a Simplicity large full-motion mount) in October 2009. They are used with a Comcast HD cable box and a Sony DVD player. I wanted a simple system that was easy for the kids to operate. That is, I want sound from the TV speakers and the Vizio sound bar at the same time, without going into a menu to select the sound mode (of course I usually turn the TV sound way down when the sound bar is on). My setup has HDMI cables from the Comcast cable box to the TV and from the Sony DVD player to the TV. Then I tried to use a single optical audio cable from the TV to the soundbar, but ended up having to use an RCA cable instead (see below). I had a surprising amount of trouble setting up the Vizio soundbar, despite reading the manuals and having setup a number of surround sound systems over the past 15 years. The problems I found were:

1. The S/PDIF optical audio input is recessed into the back of the Vizio, requiring a special cable with small diameter end shells (unlike the first 2 cables I bought, which would not snap in). I recommend that you buy all of your cables in advance from a value-priced online firm, and make sure they are long enough and the desired color, or you will end up driving around a lot and paying a lot more, as I unfortunately did.

2. The S/PDIF optical audio could not be made to work coming from the Sony TV because the Visio sound bar has no Dolby decoder chip and will only accept 2 channel sound. Setting the Sony TV's Sound Output to "external speaker" and "fixed" level was not sufficient. First I thought my unit was defective, but then I read reviews on the Costco site ([...]) which say that my Sony TV and Comcast cable box and Sony DVD player need to be set to 2.1 mode instead of the normal 5.
