If you carefully read the Amazon reviews, the people who are more thoughtful in their criticism, and seem to know more about sound quality, are not that enthusiastic.

Good detective work. Google Translate revealed two very good Amazon consumer reviews. The Fidelio E5, with the L-R mini-towers, is available on the UK Amazon site, but neither are here yet.

You could also get the recently discontinued Philips Fidelio HTL7180, or wait for the new model, the Fidelio B5 which has larger drivers.

That's the intriguing thing about the Fidelio. It's been reviewed with the speakers set well apart, further than the 54" of the Vizio, and its enhanced center apparently holds up very well. I wish...

There's also the Philips Fidelio E5, which has been sold in Europe and Asia for a year, and is supposed to make it here.

A strange problem to be sure. For search purposes I would refer to it as a horizontal band, or banding, rather than a line, as the translucency covers a portion of the screen.

I've been very happy with the BDT 500, which I've had for about ten months. The video and audio quality has been superb, and I've had no problem streaming Amazon prime and YouTube. One of a few...

I think you should check out Dan Webster's suggestion...the GoldenEars. The Triton floorstranders alone contribute a lot of bass, along with their beautiful upper end. :cool:

The use of Mr. Jones' concentric drivers promises a premium sound...if the soundbar is actually manufactured...but I'm disappointed that there will not be a 5.1 option.

The Philips HTL 7180 (9100) will play Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Digital Surround, whether that source is a BluRay Player, your receiver, or any other device capable of passing those formats.

Unless I'm very much mistaken, the ARC return channel will not let you drive the internal speakers of this soundbar with your receiver. No matter how you cut it, it is an active, powered soundbar.
