If you own a soundbar, here's your chance to tell the world how much you enjoy it—or not—and possibly win one of three Amazon gift cards.
First prize is $300
Second and third prizes are $100 each
To enter, all you have to do is post a review of your soundbar in the Reviews section, and post a link to your review in this thread. Three of the reviews will be selected at random as the winners after verifying their eligibility.
What makes a review eligible?
1) The review must be submitted between December 16 and 30, 2013, on a product within the AVS soundbar category;
2) The review must contain a title, overall rating stars, review-detail ratings, pros, cons, and a minimum 100-word body;
3) The review must be new, original work and not republished, in whole or in part, from another location on AVS Forum or elsewhere on the Internet;
4) AVS Forum reserves the right to disqualify reviews of very low quality at our discretion. Be thorough and helpful to your readers, and use good punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Also, divide your comments into several paragraphs; it's very difficult to read one long paragraph.
Never written a review on AVS Forum before? It's easy! Click here for a tutorial. To summarize, first go to the soundbar product page and click on "Add Item" in the upper right. Next, enter the make and model number of your soundbar into the search box, then click on the product in the resulting list. Finally, click on "Write a Review" in the upper right of that product's page, and input your review. It doesn't matter if someone else has already reviewed the same soundbar; we love multiple perspectives!
The most important things to cover in the main body are:
1) Features—Is it self-powered? Does it include a subwoofer? Does it simulate surround sound? Does it include Bluetooth and/or AirPlay capabilities? Does it have an IR repeater on the back? Which features are useful and which are not?
2) Setup—What inputs does it provide? How did you connect it to your TV or audio system? Was it easy or difficult to set up?
3) User Interface—Is the remote well designed? Does it have a front-panel display? Does the display disappear after a period of inactivity, or does it stay distractingly illuminated?
4) Performance—How's the sound quality? How convincing is the simulated surround? Cite examples from content you've listened to.
So fire up your soundbar and take a critical listen, then submit your review and post a link to it in this thread for a chance to win a shopping spree on Amazon!
