I bought a Christmas gift to myself from Costco website.
Vizio SB4051-C0 40" 5.1 Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer.
I saw this Vizio sound bar on Costco's Pre-Thanksgiving flyer. It was $199.99 after $80.00 discount. I've been searching for some kind of audio system for my TV for last year or so. There are many cheaper options available. But I cannot allow cheap sound in my house because I love watching TV (and proud). This unit caught my attention because it was right at my budget after $80 off. When it comes to sound system, (usually) you get better sound quality as you spend more money. So, you want to spend maximum amount of money within your budget.
This Vizio sound bar does exactly what I want it to do. It sits behind my TV that I can barely see it's there. The subwooper is hidden on the floor behind the TV. My TV remote controls the volume of the sound bar. Music channels sound amazing with this.
The volume goes up to level 35. I normally watch TV at level 7-10. Level 20 is too loud that I cannot enjoy watching TV that way. When I listen to music channel, I may raise the volume to level 20-25 but only for a few minutes. Volume level 35 is not realiatic for me.
As a TV lover, this sound bar dramatically improves my life style. I am really enjoying this.
FYI: I still haven't installed the satellite speakers.

I came a long way. When I first started my blog, I had a 9 Inch TV in my living room.
