and here is our announcement as well-
VIZIO’s All-New 2018 Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos® Bring Immersive Cinematic Audio to Your Living Room

Up to 10 Channels of Crystal-Clear Sound, Including Four Unique Upward-Firing Speakers, Produce a Truly Immersive Home-Theater Experience

Irvine, CA — April 10, 2018 — VIZIO, Inc., America’s #1 sound bar company1, revealed today its all-new 2018 Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos. Designed to produce extraordinary cinematic sound from every angle, even overhead, the new collection sets the standard for immersive in-home audio. The VIZIO Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos are available in three configurations and feature independent upward-firing speakers that deliver up to 10 channels of incredible sound from every direction. The VIZIO 46” 5.1.4, 46” 3.1.2 and 36” 5.1.2 Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos will begin rolling out on VIZIO.com and to retailers later this summer.

“VIZIO is continuously engineering ways to improve the home-entertainment experience for consumers, and this next iteration of audio solutions proves just that,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “By integrating Dolby Atmos into our all-new home theater sound bar systems, we’re able to bring premium, multidimensional cinema-quality audio into the home. Our flagship 46” 5.1.4 system features four upward-firing speakers that allow sound to reflect off the ceiling, encapsulating listeners and wrapping the entire viewing area with sound.”

The new home theater sound systems build on VIZIO’s legacy of award-winning audio performance. Featuring up to four Dolby Atoms-enabled speakers that reflect sound off the ceiling, listeners hear a range of subtle sounds that are often missed with conventional audio setups. Birds fluttering overhead, thunderstorms and helicopters swirling above become part of the listening experience to further draw viewers into their entertainment. Engineered to delight demanding cinephiles, each system starts with rich sound from the main sound bar’s front left and right channels for a wide-ranging sound stage. A separate center channel then creates crystal-clear dialogue, while powerful wireless subwoofers produce room-shaking bass. Rear surround sound speakers complete the system, while the added upward-firing speakers wrap the entire viewing environment with sound. Boasting a simple, plug-and-play installation process – without the need for additional components such receivers, amplifiers or other cables – the collection yields cinematic sound within minutes. The three configuration options are designed to complement a variety of television and room sizes. Additionally, sleek, industrial profiles maintain a clutter-free atmosphere and aesthetic.

“Dolby’s mission is to enable experiences that transcend expectations, fully immersing viewers into the story exactly as the creatives intended,” said Giles Baker, Senior Vice President, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Through VIZIO’s integration of Dolby Atmos into its new home theater sound systems, we are enabling more ways for consumers to bring spectacular audio into their living rooms.”

With Google Chromecast built-in, the VIZIO Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos also allows users to stream music from any Chromecast-enabled audio app, including favorites like Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio and Google Play Music. By tapping the Cast button or by downloading the free SmartCast Mobile™ app, users can transform any mobile device into a powerful touchscreen remote to stream music directly to their VIZIO home theater sound system or sound bar. The latest audio offerings ship with a remote to control basic functions.

The latest VIZIO sound bar systems also feature smart home capabilities. With voice-control support for Google Assistant, users can control their sound bars using only their voice. While Bluetooth® is integrated into all VIZIO audio products, streaming over a WiFi connection allows listeners to control audio over a greater range compared to Bluetooth, in addition to experiencing higher quality audio without interruptions from texts or phone calls.

Also joining VIZIO’s 2018 audio collection is the 36” 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers. The compact one-piece sound bar delivers the full-bodied bass typically only found in a system with a separate subwoofer. Highlighted by two internal subwoofers that are paired with four deep bass modules for deep, robust bass, the all-new sound bar can instantly transform the living room into a captivating home theater or private concert hall. With a unique combination of power, size and style, the strikingly compact system is perfect for rooms with limited space and complements TV screens 40 inches and larger. The 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers also boasts Dolby AudioTM as well as DTS Virtual:X sound enhancement for simulated overhead and surround sound, stepping up the audio quality of your TV. Whether listeners decide to rest it in front of their TV or mount it on the wall, the adjustable design keeps each driver in peak position for optimal performance. Bluetooth® connectivity also enables listeners to stream their favorite music from their smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

For more information on the 2018 VIZIO Home Theater Sound Systems with Dolby Atmos or 36” 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers, visit VIZIO.com.

Vizio are very smart marketers with the Dolby Cinema line:

"With up-firing speakers, you'll hear birds, thunderstorms and helicopters above you with the same 360° audio technology found in premium Dolby Cinemas."

Best practice is to take all HDMI sources to the TV and output their audio to the sound bar system via HDMI ARC. Or take all HDMI sources' audio to a preamp or receiver then out via the processor's HDMI Audio Only out to the sound bar's HDMI In.

my TV only has 3x HDMI inputs, and if I'm going with a soundbar I'm not going to be adding anymore equipment in the middle; I could just go with a full build-out with receiver and speaker setup instead


if it's only 1x hdmi in then there are other very good soundbar options, from Samsung, Sony and Nakamichi

I hope that ain't true, that would be a huge deal-breaker for me, even the LG SK10Y at least had 2 HDMI inputs. But I'm in the A/V receiver world now so it's not much of a big deal to me nowadays.

My current mancave room setup:
Vizio V436-G1 4K HDR TV | LG UBK90 4K Blu-ray player | Denon AVR-S740H AV Receiver (running 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X) | Xbox One X | Roku Ultra (2018 model)

You could probably use the Optical and the Digital Coaxial inputs for the other sources giving you 5.

Not that would sound as good and have discrete 5.1.4 configuration.

If you did this you would lose Dolby Atmos as it does not go over ARC until eARC?

If that is the case you would think companies would be advertising that as many people are waiting for eARC.

Are there any TV's out that support eARC?

You have to have both the TV and the soundbar support eARC for lossless Atmos

I mean, Vizio needs to give more info on this, especially the 5.1.4 product. I don't want to keep waiting and waiting. I'll probably keep the SK10Y if there isn't anything else to know in the next two weeks.

Ugh. Welp, tomorrow is the last day I can take my Sk10Y back. No news on release date for the Vizio. I guess I'm going to have to skip out this time around.

I hope this new high end Vizio soundbar shreds the competition by including advanced DTS audio support and at least 3 HDMI inputs.

Return it.

Then buy it gain to re-start the return window clock.

It's gonna be another few years before eARC becomes the new normal.

So I want to possibly use this with a Sony X900F (Only two full 2.0 HDMI inputs), plus a UBP-X700 and PS4 Pro.

For the set up I'm thinking PS4 to the TV w/HDMI, then TV to soundbar w/Toslink. And UBP-X700 to the soundbar w/HDMI, then soundbar to the TV w/HDMI. Is that accurate to be the full benefit if Dolby Atmos on the UBP-X700 with this system?

I wouldn't expect anything with eARC or HDMI 2.1 until the end of the year at the earliest and more likely sometime into next year.

I made good choice buying from Costco. I just returned my Vizio 2017 M for 2018 P, right within their window. They saved me all the hassles moving 75 inch TVs. I also bought sb3651 from them, but not having HDR passing through bothers me. If the 5.1.x come out through Costco, I'm interested in a replacement. It would work perfectly with P75. I'm totally Vizioed!

Late summer is late early to mid September. Fall starts third week of September, the 22nd; Autumn Equinox. Basically, we have to keep interest until then, without any more info, etc. Pretty much lost me already.
