I'm impressed with the surround sound of this system. The setup was easy and I had it up within only a few minutes. Because of the layout of my living room, I had to make a small change to the individual channel volume levels before I got the desired surround sound balance. But after that, I was very pleased. The soundstage is very wide and the overall sound is very clear. The surround effects speaker seem to do the job well. I can also hear the small details, adding to the home theater feel. The subwoofer also kicks really hard and is capable of producing very low frequencies. Overall, a 5 star sound bar.
