It came in a huge box that was mostly empty space. The sound bar was packed at the very top of the box with the subwoofer underneath. The subwoofer was flanked by two large pieces of styrofoam just for structural integrity.
The sound bar is deceptively heavy and does require two hands to handle. The grill on the sound bar is quite fine, but trying to shine a light through it barely revealed what the drivers looked like. The upward firing drivers were much easier to see. I have a feeling these will be hard to keep dust free.
As you'll see in photos, there's a remote, optical cable and cable ties. There are holes in the back of the sound bar for the cable ties/cable organization. The subwoofer is covered by cloth on all sides with the bass port in the back. The subwoofer cone is forward firing and is covered by a honey comb grill. I find this a nice touch since that'll keep my toddler's small fingers from reaching the comb.
The display on the soundbar is directly to the right of the center speaker. It's not apparent in the photo, but the display brightens when changing volume or changing settings, but dims after a bit.
I connected it as follows BDP7501 -> SJ9 -> 65B6P (to HDMI2 port, the ARC port). I can now definitively say that the sound bar can pass a 4K HDR signal! I'll test with a Dolby Atmos disc tomorrow.
I've watched a few movies and some TV along with listened to some hi-res music and this soundbar does a very good job. I've heard things that didn't hear with the internal TV speakers. The hi-res music I played sounded very good. I don't have a comparable set of speakers to compare it to, but I do listen to hi-res audio on my computer with a pair of Audeze LCD-XCs driven by an Apogee Groove. The detail from the soundbar was respectable!
Overall I'm really happy with this!
