really too bad the vizio's dont offer hdmi....why????
Hey Nenito,,,, yes, except YOTR has not checked out the Vizio yet,,, I think when he does though he's going to be very supprised at how good the Vizio's sound.
I have high hopes and expectations for the new VHT210 and VHT510,,, I really think they are going to be a big step forward from the current Vizio bar.
As far as HDMI's,, for me the Vizio's work better by not having them,,, I use my 55" LED Vizio panel as my HDMI switcher,,, the way I was doing it was just hooking my HD DVD player, HD cable box and BluRay into the Vizio display via HDMI's and then running one optical cable from the Vizio display to the Vizio soundbar.
With the new Vizio bars because they will decode Dolby Digital and the VHT510 will do true 5.1, I will have to change my hook-up, I will still hook everything up to my display with HDMI's, but will run an optical from my BD player directly the the soundbar as my display will not pass true 5.1 thru the optical,,,, the HD DVD player I will hook up to the bar using RCA cables,,, and then run RCA cable's out of my display to the second set of RCA inputs on the bar as my display will pass 5.1 thru the RCA's with HD cable,,,, hope that all made sense
I know the VHT210 goes on sale at Target on the 25th of this month but Im not sure if the VHT510 has the same release/sale date.
I figure I will just go in person on the 25th to get the VHT210 and the VHT510 I have on pre-order for shipping to me, unless I find the VHT510 also on sale at Target on the 25th, in that case I will buy both and cancel my shipping order.
While Im quite sure the VHT510 will be the keeper, I want to check out both Vizio's side by side at the same time,,,, I will of course post a little review here of both bars afterwards.
Anyhow,, the 25th cant come soon enough.
