Regarding the Haier, I don't know what TV you have or what you plan to connect to a soundbar (and how you want to connect), but be aware that if you would be connecting anything to the Haier via Toslink, the source device must be able to output PCM.
I've never heard the bar and it may sound great for all I know. That PCM limitation caught another member unaware, which is why I did a bit of research on it and found out why he had a problem.
I don't know if the Vizio 215 can accept anything other than PCM over Toslink. The Vizio 200 only accepts PCM, but perhaps the 215 is different.
