This 42” soundbar system has been on my radar for some time now. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the necessary time to take it for a test drive. If you’ve been my subscriber or reader for a while you know I love soundbars and I love Vizio (who is now America’s #1 Bestselling LED LCD HDTV company). Actually, my opinion is one I seem to share with a lot of other people, the home theater sound bar I’m going to review today is actually the Winner of CNET’s Best of CES 2013.

The VIZIO S4251w-B4, already an award winning unit, was recently made available for purchase at many online retailers, including Amazon on May 1, 2013.

This unit constitutes a complete 5.1 surround sound home theater solution in my opinion. This being a mid-ticket item, a lot of people will have access to it, so it's pretty important people are rightly informed and have a chance to make a smart decision when considering a purchase.

Pros:
  • High quality rear speakers
  • Bluetooth works great
Cons:
  • Subwoofer level is hard to tweak

As a primary unit I necessarily have to address the immersive surround sound VIZIO equipped this 5.1 soundbar with. The 5.1 home theater experience is brought to you by a 3 channel sound bar, a wireless subwoofer and rear satellite speakers. The system will give you up to 102dB of amzing (loud) roof-raising volume; all with less than 1% of total harmonic distortion. The award winning premium audio is delivered with the help of technologies like Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround decoding. Along those mentioned previously, the DTS TruVolume and DTS Circle Surround audio post processing features will give you an even better (and easier) way to enjoy all your favorite movies, TV shows, music and games. The overall bass performance is great, clear and loud enough, the only thing that seems to bother people is that it's pretty hard to tweak for every purpose. For example if it's perfect for TV watching, it's going to be too loud for music and vice-versa. Although overall quality is amazing.

Another amazing well-worth feature of this unit is its convenience to use and set-up. A lot of users have specifically mentioned they had it up and running in less than 10 minutes (without consulting the manual); the wireless subwoofer is a simple plug-and-play unit which gets the job done immediately. The package comes included with some and easy to install wall mount brackets, for better positioning. The unit is equipped with a wide range of digital and analog inputs, and all cables you need to connect it to any HDTV.

As for streaming capabilities the VIZIO S4251w-B4 comes with built-in Bluetooth technology to allow you to stream music from any compatible smart phone, tablet, music player or computer. All this without even turning on the TV. The unit also comes with a really cool display remote; this is really easy to use, having a nice intuitive user interface.

Overall a really cool system. We think this is probably the best thing money can buy at this price point, and any real upgrade would take out a lot of extra money out of your wallet right now. Most of all, this is truly for any type of user, the easy setup is highly recommend it if you don't have the skills or the time to invest in bigger home theater systems.
