Why in the world would any of this matter? Do you have a 4K TV? If so, why would you route your video through a receiver or a soundbar unless you knew the upscaling chip in the audio unit...

Probably not. I have a Yamaha YSP and it works well only in Stereo mode. To bring any type of surround mode realistically you require a more or less rectangular room with walls for the soundbeams.

Vizio has an excellent implementation of dolby voice command if the show is so encoded. Pioneer voice mode is also very good as it attenuates both the bass and high treble. JVC used to be the best...

Trust me. Cost has no bearing on how good or bad a soundbar sounds. I have a $ 2,000 Yamaha (including matching sub) that gathers dust. You know what blew it away? $ 97 Vizio.

Looking at the specs for the 4251, the USB power only works with (.WAV) audio files (standard CD's) and does not work with MP-3's via the USB drive.
