4.0 out of 5 stars Analog output only..., December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pinnacle Speakers S-BAR 3509 9-Element Speaker Bar Ideal for TVs 35-Inch and Up (Black) (Electronics)
We were excited to receive this sound bar. It arrived timely and in excellent condition. The speaker itself was heavy, which is a good sign for a speaker. After looking at it and researching it (instructions are a bit confusing) we discovered it has analog output only. We needed digital output. This was disappointing as the speaker seemed like it would have been an excellent addition to our TV. No where did it mention the output, I feel this should be in the description. Giving this speaker four stars because it is well built and would be good if you are looking for an analog output bar.

Just curious if you're talking about it "lacking" an HDMI/optical port. I'm no expert but I think this is normal for "speaker bars" whereas "sound bars" would include those ports because they're more of a complete home theater system. This particular "speaker bar" should be thought of as 3 separate speakers that happen to be cased together and require an amp to drive their sound.

I think you mean "input" since all speakers are analog output (since our ears are analog). Andrew is right on. This is simply three channels in one box. You still need to power them via speaker wires. This unit is completely passive (doesn't plug into the wall and cannot be powered by standard TV outputs).
