Seriously considering this if it is sold via BestBuy. I'm testing an LG SK10Y for now, but I'm willing to give it up for a top quality Vizio 5.1.4 setup.

That said I'd love to get a price on this.
Good luck, that doesn’t exist. Philips has some battery powered rears but that’s about it.

The Vizio rep in the AVS Forum video said yes.

Thanks, I must have missed that in the video. I'm really interested to hear what people think of these things, particularly the 5.1.4 system. I was looking at getting the Onkyo HT-S7800 but the receiver doesn't support Dolby Vision. I just bought the new TCL Series 6 65" as well as a Philips BDP7502/F7 4K blue-ray player, both which support Dolby Vision and Atmos. I'm obviously on a bit of a budget, so I don't have the funds to build the Atmos system I want. Looks like this could be a great solution.

You are correct, haven’t seen that one. But at 10 hours are you truly wireless? That’s terrible battery life.

And it's the only truly wireless rears that I know of - pitty the battery life is terrible, however that's the reason no one else have done true wireless before, the battery is an issue


Probably the way to solve that is to make the Rears bigger, so you can add a big battery that lasts a good 40+ hours


Heck, my Seinheisser noise cancelling wireless headphones last 30 hours on a charge, surely someone can make wireless rear speakers that do the same

Still anxiously awaiting Vizio to release these products.


Any word on price points, thus far? I'm also wondering if the rears will be needing a receiver to be plugged into. Hope not!

No final pricing yet on the 2018 VIZIO Atmos sound bars. The satellites will be connected to the subwoofer via wired connection.

So how is the LG SK10Y working out for you? Did you get the satellite speakers?
Is it worth it or are you still contemplating Vizio?


I'm thinking of getting the SK10Y, but still on the fence...

I tried out the LG SK9J and wasn’t that impressed for the price. Waiting to give the Vizio a shot.

I'm torn between waiting for one of these (maybe August availability?) or going with the Vizio SB3651-E6 available now.. Might be worth waiting for Atmos but not sure.

Just got a new f/w update for the SK10Y so we'll see how the voice channel is handled. I'm hoping the Vizio comes out before my 45 day return time is up.

If you have something at least halfway decent now, wait for it! We have a 10+ y/o home theater in a box that will get us by. But the next purchase needs to also get us about 10 years so want to wait for Atmos for sure.

Sounds like waiting is probably the move. I wonder for the 5.1.2 if we're talking ~$300 or more?

Probably more, their 16 3.1 & 5.1 models are still more than that.

Nobody knows but knowing Vizio it will be nowhere near that expensive. I wouldn’t be shocked if they fell in the $750-900 range.

Just got the 2.1 SB362An-F6. It's a really good option for a smaller room. Decent bass too.

Ugh. Three weeks. I hope it comes out in three weeks or less. If not, I'll just keep the SK10 and Vizio won't get my monies.

Hopefully, soon.. otherwise, I'm going to miss out.

Looking to hear how the 5.1.4 will handle DTS-HD MA.

My friend is a manager at Costco and he said there are new Vizio soundbar SKUs he hasn’t seen before on next week’s incoming shipment for electronics so wondering if any of these new Dolby Atmos systems will be in stores soon
