                Comments about Sony Black TV Sound Bar:

                This Sony sound bar is perfect for the family room and a 46 " television. Dont expect this sound bar to be like a quality 5.1 or better surround sound system. It does make the poor TV sound very good. It interfaces perfectly when using the Audio Return (ARC) connection, in that you can use the TV or Sattelite remote to control volume. One Directv remote for Sattelite, TV, and sound bar is great. However, if the TV doesn't have ARC interface you'll have to control the sound bar separately. For the price this unit deserves 5 stars.

                Service and delivery comments:

                ABT is a 5 star online retailer. They have competitive pricing, very good communication after product purchase.
