Even though this isn't an Atmos bar, this is the first review of the 2018 VIZIO sound systems.
CNET's Ty Pendlebury and Steve Guttenberg, wrote a great review of the VIZIO All-in-One (SB3621An-F6) sound bar, giving it 4.5/5 stars, with an 8.7 overall score. The only reason it’s not an Editor’s Choice is because they’ve reserved that for VIZIO's SB3621, which they consider worth the money for the external sub. They highly recommend the All-In-One bar, though, noting that it’s the best bar for $100 and have numerous positive comments.
In a comparison with a Yamaha bar costing twice as much (the YAS-108), Ty Pendlebury and Steve Guttenberg found the AIO to be “the more enjoyable listen”, and note that’s a big accomplishment given how good the Yamaha sounds. They also compared to a $100 Polk speaker, the Signa Solo, but they noted “overall, it isn’t in the same league as the VIZIO”. See the full review at the link below, and some great quotes, below that.
-very good sound for a bargain price
-The inclusion of Dolby, DTS and Virtual:X sound modes delivers a high level of soundtrack compatibility.
-astoundingly good value, with excellent sound quality and a high degree of flexibility
-The quality of sound it can deliver at this price is kind of amazing
-the Vizio is the more enjoyable listen,
-The remote offers powerful levels of control
-[DTS Virtual:X] works especially well
-bass was full and plenty deep enough that we didn't miss having a separate sub,
-The bar unleashed a tall and wide soundstage while still maintaining good image focus.
-easy to adjust
-the SB362An-F6 succeeds by disappearing and not calling attention to itself
-better bass and more high-end sparkle than the similarly-configured but more-expensive Yamaha YAS-108
-If you only have a Franklin to spend on a sound bar, the answer is yes, you should buy it.
-The SB362An-F6 defies our expectations for how good a $100 sound bar can sound and beats anything we've heard at that price.
