This review is from: Seiki SB102N 2.1 Channel Super Slim Bluetooth Sound Bar
Pros: This sound bar has a large amount of ways to connect to it. This bar can be used for computer sound, Tv sound, mp3 player sound, or as a radio. The bluetooth connectivity is easy to pair, simply turn on the unit, go to the bt mode, then hold the pair button down. The unit has a built in display which shows the time when it is turned off.
Cons: I can't get this unit to sound good no matter what I do. I set the EQ to flat, and flattened the bass and treble on the unit. Then I went into my sound card Equalizer UI which has 10 bands at +/-20db. And no matter what I did, I couldn't get it to produce impressive sound. When I turn the unit off, and then back on; it doesn't remember to apply my treble and bass curves. I have to turn the treble up and then back down for it to apply the filter. Maybe my unit was a lemon?
Other Thoughts: Seiki was going in the right direction with the flexible connection options. The huge miss was in the poorly programmed EQ options and buggy on/off eq filter. I got this as a free gift, so I can't complain too much. It does produce sound, but I would skip it and use a real receiver and speakers if you have room for it. According to the page it "full-range, dynamic sound for a truly immersive experience." That's stretching the truth a bit far, but it is better than most LED tv thin tinny sounding speakers in the field of mid range sound. The low range sound is lacking.
