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.

How much do you want to spend?

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...
