From the Manufacturer
The VIZIO 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater delivers big home theater sound in a sleek design that's perfect for 40" HDTVs and larger. With a compact sound bar that integrates front and center channels, two rear satellite speakers and a wireless subwoofer, this premium surround sound system supports Dolby Digital, DTS, SRS TruSurround HD and SRS TruVolume for a truly immersive audio experience.
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. It sends high-definition quality audio to other Wireless HD Audio-compatible devices like the VIZIO Home Theater Wireless Headphones (sold separately). This advanced 5.1 surround sound 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.
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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
I finally returned the Vizio 510 to Costco today. The LED volume indicator completely stopped working.Read more ›
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.
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.
