The sound is great after making adjustments to the settings. Every space is different so I would encourage reading the users guide to customize the specifications for your room. Purchased 11/25/2018 and the firmware update really brought the system to life. I am running on two consoles to the sound bar and the sound sound bar to my TV via HDMI ARC port. Watched Avengers Infinity War in 4K and it both looked and sounded fantastic! The components appear to constructed well so i presume this sound bar will last for many years. Would definitely recommend.
