    The room I have the SB in is not the kind of room you can put an AVR system in. For such a room a SB is the best alternative I think. I do have an AVR system with a 500W subwoofer in a nearby room, that thing does shake the house. The Polk SB does have a very good smaller subwoofer.

    I don't have anything bad to say about Polk as my first soundbar/w wireless subwoofer was a Polk system and I liked it alot.
    But it did not have an optical connection only left/right channels,plus I gradually wanted optical connected 5.1 sound and for the price I selected the Vizio system,plus I have a Vizio UHDTV.

    The sound on our two Polks is good. But there's some issues with them. We are not sorry we bought them but I don't think I'd recommend them to anyone. Simply put you can't beat an AVR if you have the room for one. They are a lot more expensive than a soundbar once you factor in all the speakers. The subwoofer I have cost more than the two Polks combined.
