from Way underpriced and would make a great projectI am a custom installer and occasionally a customer just wants me to add a sound bar to a bedroom or something, which was the case recently, so I decided to give this one a try. I am so impressed with this unit. It has a really full sound and plenty of bass. My customer has an LG sound bar in the other room that has a separate wireless sub that they bought fur just under $300. This unit has MUCH fuller sound than the wimpy LG and has about as much bass WITHOUT a separate sub woofer. Also, the LG, and any other common sound bar I have worked with, had cheap plastic construction. This unit is very solid and made of what looks like 1/2" particle board. I am considering getting another one of these for myself and making a project out of it. As good as the sound is, a pair of TB full range drivers would add a little needed sparkle to the top end. I recommend this sound bar to anyone for almost any reason, even a simple semi-portable music system. I can't believe how inexpensive this thing is.

from Great TV soundThe sound bar installed easily, is somewhat bigger than I expected, but not too large. It blocked the sensor on my flat screen so I had to locate it behind the screen. The sound is great with very good level control and equalization control, well worth the cost.

from A nice surprise.The ordering of the product was very easy. Free shipping showed 5 to 10 business days for del so I selected the nextlevel up which was under 5 dollars and all it said was UPS.The order was shipped the same day I ordered it early in the morning and in 3 days it was here with good tracking all the way. It was well packaged and was in good working orderwhen it arrived. I have a wall hung LCD tv with a 3 shelftable under it. The tv's speakers aim down, and I wanted something that aimed at me. The S325 does and the soundis excellent. The instructions were minimal and that was allthat was needed. In 15 minutes of installation time I had sound coming out that I could hear without chasing every one out of the room. It has good bass and treble and I am enjoying it very much. Good music, good material and a good price. Thanks very much.

from DisappointedDrawbacks:Speaker has 3 inputs (2 RCA, 1 optical) that are selectable via remote or top switch. However, every time you power it off, it 'resets' to the first analog input when you power it back up. Annoying if you only want to connect to the optical input.#However, I cannot get an optical audio signal to produce sound from either my Sony Bravia TV or Apple TV 3. Either the new speaker has an optial input defect #unlikely#, or it isn't as 'plug and play' as the description claims.#Very low volume. The digital readout goes from 0 to 60. However, nothing below 20 is even audible.Digital readout: not shown in picture, the unit has a 2 digit red lcd display #think old alarm clock# in the middle that shows volume level. And it cannot be turned off. Unfortunate if you are going for a low profile look.Plus: has treble and bass 'eq', which is not in the description. Comes with RCA and a Toslink cable, which is a surprise in this day of nothing coming with cables included.
