Polk doesn't dissapoint
Pros: Polk makes some of the best audio components around. And this sound bar, wireless sub combo, doesn't disappoint. the highs are clear and are well focused in the room to give the feeling of full immersion. The sub adds a tight punch an great low end sound. The learn function on the soundbar works well, allowing you to use your current remote for volume control. The addition of extra rubber feet work well to allow proper placement of soundbar. I would recommend this to anyone looking to add great sound to their current set up.
Cons: The blue light on the front of the sound bar can get annoying, as it is facing directly towards the viewer. I will not remove an egg for poor placement of this light.
Other Thoughts: A way to turn the blue light on and off would be proper.

Pros: above average sound
Cons: wireless subwoofer disrupts wireless internet without a doubt. Don't listen to people that say it doesn't

Easy sound quality from your LED TV
Pros: This speaker system is as easy to set up as described. The output is of high quality with great audio fidelity. The Polk Audio Surroundbar 4000 was purchased from a different vendor as a part of an LG LED TV package. Although I am not an audio buff, the system owner is a retired musician with a critical ear for sound quality. We listened to several other offerings including Bose, and this Polk product was easily the most bang for the buck deal we listened to. Set up is quite easy, but be sure to disable the TV sound function when doing the TV setup. The highs and lows were very prominent with the Dolby circuitry. The output did not distort even when the volume was increased to a level high enough to shake the room. For a small to medium sized family room or living room, the Polk Surroundbar 4000 is more than adequate for a home theater experience that approaches Bose quality at a far lower price. Graded 4 eggs only because it is not a Bose!
Cons: None thus far.
Other Thoughts: A better home theater experience would cost much more. The Polk Audio Surroundbar 4000 is well engineered, and it is very easy to set up for the average user.
