I have the Pioneer hooked to direct tv on HDMI2, LG bluray 570 on HDMI1, and HDMI out to LG 50PK750 plasma HDMI1 input. Iit sits right in front of the plasma. (Before the sound bar arrived, both were hooked up to the plasma directly, direct tv on HDMI1, 570 on HDMI2).
Since this is my first time using a sound bar. I can't compare to other brand.
It does do the following just like Pioneer advertised,
recognize Dolby True HD, and other Dolby processing
only recognize regular DTS, not HD
How is the sound? Way better then the TV set. Is it worth the money. Definitely (to me). Would it replace a proper 5.1 set up? NO.
I played a few movies, the latest Star Trek, 300, Harry Potter. Even though the sound field is not that wide, but it definitely is there.
