I was thinking about utilizing the Vizio for everything else...the front bar of course, then putting the wireless Vizio sub in the back almost like a hub for the surrounds, and then turning the sub itself off. I wonder if that would ruin the blend of audio and I would be missing a lot of mid-bass from the Vizio sub. Then again, I could turn my crossover on the 10" up a bit to compensate. Wondering your thoughts on running a system like that.
Or, would you recommend the JVC TH-BA3 and I can just simply not incorporate the sub at all since it has a separate amp for the rear surrounds. I guess at that point I would ask how is the overall surround performance compare between the TH-BA3 vs the new Vizio?
The other system I am considering is a YSP-4000 which has a sub out, but that is much more expensive.
Yes, you can turn the sub all the way down on the 510.
As far as using another sub, cant offer an opinion on that as I have never done that,, best thing to do is try it out and see if it works and blends ok.
The BA3 vs the Vizio 510,, soundwise thats a tough one,, they are both great sounding systems,,,, the Vizio wins though for ease of hook-up though,, with the JVC BA3 you need 3 power sources, the bar, the sub and the rears all need power,,, with the Vizio you only need 2 power sources.

Only a guess on my part but I think the 210 bar and the 510 bar would be different sounding,,,, the 210 bar needs to create all the surround effects while the 510 bar rely's on the rears for the surround effects.

From the Vizio's web site, 510 can decode DTS 2.0, but 210 does not. So spec is different...
Correct,, the 210 does not do DTS and the 510 does do DTS.
