Have had the soundbar for 6-7 months now
and really have very few if any complaints.
Perhaps part of it is I don’t have anything
connected to it like Apple TV etc, just the Oled via
ARC to the unit and zero handshake issues.
The bar when turned on instantly displays
optical for a second or two before th ARC
Displays. I too have noticed both vocal clarity
and volume differs based on the sound source,
but that isn’t a function of the bar. Using the
standard Meridian mode 100% of the time
with center speaker volume at 5 or 6, Treble
at 5 provides excellent vocals to go along
with the large soundscape for 5.1 movie or
Atmos. Playing music off my phone or
I heart radio etc sounds great in bass blast mode.
Had friends over last night and we watched
a Stones concert from Cuba in 4K and they were
blown away by both the picture and the sound.
While the soundbar to me isn’t perfect and perfection
is in he ears of the beholder, both the TV and
bar are high on a list of the best purchases
I’ve ever made.
