3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, but some issues

Pros: Width is spot of for my needs.
Sound is pretty good for not having a separate subwoofer.

Cons: Remote is horrible. I thought I was going to have to return the unit as the remote didn't work and I didn't know if it was due to the remote or the speaker. New batteries didn't help. Thanks to the other (first) review, I did try pushing/prying/squeezing the remote and did eventually come up with a working setup, allowing me to not have to return this thing. A learning remote will make this remote unnecessary.

I also have a little buzz/rattle coming out of the right side--I expect it's just not assembled well and I think I'll be able to fix that with a little screw tightening..

The hot-glue stringers all over the unit make it seem pretty cheaply made (which is reinforced by the flakey remote as well.)

I wish the remote could toggle the power--it does mute/standby. Probably okay as the input selection and volume level reset when powered off.

Other Thoughts: For the price (~ $90), I'm really happy with the sound quality and the size. It should fit perfectly in my TV cabinet (34.5" wide), and has both analog and digital inputs. The only remaining thing I wish it has was Bluetooth streaming, but that's a pipe dream at this price.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent sound, but a little cheap

Pros: For a soundbar in the "entry level" price range, this thing puts out decent sound. It's designed well, it's relatively lightweight, and it's the kind of product that goes well on its own in a bedroom setup or in a small living room.

If you want nice sound and you don't want or can't have surround sound, a soundbar is a reasonable choice.

Cons: First, and foremost, instead of spending 16 cents / unit to manufacture remotes, they cut corners and spent 11 cents / units. (Numbers fabricated for effect.) The point is, the remote is a piece of junk. It's one of those thing, watch-battery operated remotes but it's so cheap that the battery doesn't make contact properly, the PCB doesn't align with the plastic buttons properly, and all of this with a QC sticker right on the remote! Half the reason this is better than an entry-level set of PC / studio speakers is that it's got a remote (the other half is that it's bar-shaped).

The bar only has feet on the very edge (longways) so you can't set it down on anything that is isn't wide enough to be under the entire length of the bar (i.e. no overhang).

The mounting brackets on the back are not 16" apart. Sure, at 15lbs, this thing doesn't need to be mounted to studs, but it couldn't hurt.

Finally, and as a combined effect of all of these, it's very hard to put this thing down anywhere or mount it against anything in a way that doesn't result in the thing resonating (usually at relatively low frequency). If the feet make contact with whatever's under it, it is less likely (but still possible) to get that resonance going.

Note that it is not just the cabinet / tv-stand / whatever resonating. I believe the problem is that soundbar + anything heavy attached on any side has too much resonance at a particular frequency (maybe 40Hz?). Other speakers in the same place, atop the same furniture, do not produce the resonant effect.

My solution was to get thick foam pads and squash those between the wall and the metal bracket for mounting (which made mounting significantly harder... ). It cuts down on that effect somewhat (but still, not perfect).

Other Thoughts: Attempting to contact AudioSource has been completely fruitless. No response to any of my emails. No way to open a support ticket. Retailer wanted me to ship it back in their 30 day window, but the soundbar is fine. I want to send back the remote only -- which AudioSource could do, if they ever responded...

Note: AudioSource soundbars have effects that are meant to "simulate" a surround-sound system, so I would not recommend using it in a surround-sound setup, although I suppose you could try. This one doesn't have too much / too strong of an effect (it's their low-end model) so it might actually be best for a center-channel set-up.
