I bought this sound bar because I own a TCL TV and I didn’t want to add another remote. I wasn’t looking for dramatic room-filling surround sound for movies, rather, maybe just some enhanced sound and more clarity, as I suffer from deficient hearing. This sound bar delivers neither. I have a Bose Solo 5 on another TV that does have better sound and a button for speech that actually works. The TCL sound bar reminds me of the sound you used to get when they used to build real speakers into the TV set. The only positive is that the sound bar and TV operate with the same remote and both start up concurrently.
