Wondering if anyone can tell me if the directtv remote will control this item??
Ty in advance!!!!
How does that sound bar work? I've got a nice Panny plasma in my bedroom but the sound, while better than I thought it would be, isn't nearly what I want. I like center speakers. Does the sound bar give off a "center speaker" sound or does it all blend in?
The model that i just purchased is the jvc. it has a wireless sub with it too. Says it's 4 channel and a synthesized center. It should sound pretty good. It has 2 optical inputs so it meets my demands there. Hoping it sounds good.
Just hoping the dvr remote will control it so we don't have an extra remote around.
4.1? No. It's a gimmick. It works (to some degree) for folks who don't have room for an actual speaker setup. You are not getting four discrete channels. It simply attempts to provide you with the allusion of them.
Here is the link for it
1. a passing or casual reference; an incidental mention of something, either directly or by implication: an allusion to Shakespeare.
2. the act of alluding.
3. Obsolete . a metaphor; parable.
I think you meant illusion.
Haha...you are correct.
Actually he alluding to the fact that it is an illusion! :lol:
Hell, I have no problems with the thing fooling me into thinking it's got a center speaker. Me and illusions get along real well. If I can find one that works as if it had a center speaker I'd be happy with it. My wife refuses to let me put a "normal (which means I can shake the whole house with it) sound system" in the bedroom. But perhaps for Xmas.
I was gonna mention that misused word, but thought I'd let it go and someone else would pick it up. I just looked at the price and I think I'll just get a sound system, no matter what the wife says. :lol:
This is where i bought mine. Brand new from buy.coms ebay site.
Have you tried it yet? I want to be thrilled.
Not yet just ordered it today. Should be here by the end of the week or early next week!!!!
Please let me know how you like it.
Since a sound bar is based on reflections, unless you are centered in a square room (and the sound bar is also centered), not only will it not work, but it might sound worse than TV speakers, because you'll get an echo as sound reaches you at different points. If you have windows or curtains or a bookshelf or anything else in the way (on the side walls), that will effect it to.
well i will let you know on friday, that's when it will be here!!!
That's good info. Thanx. I think that this info will keep me from buying one.
Hey, I was so happy to see "discrete" correctly used (instead of "discreet") that I was perfectly willing to give a pass on "allusion."
Folks over at avsforum highly recommend the Vizio VHT510. I picked one up from costco and love it so far. Some of the early versions had build issues, but mine seems to be holding up well (no worries with the Costco warranty). The VHt510 comes with wireless sub and rear surround speakers. The rear surround speakers are connected by wires to the wireless sub. Those surrounds really set it apart from other sound bars.
As for the sound quality, I'm loving it so far. Not sure how a sound bar can sound worse that the tiny speakers included in most tv sets these days. Rich don't hesitate to try one out. Just purchase your unit from someone who has a great return policy.
Otherwise the JVC you purchased has also gotten great reviews as well.
