I'm patiently waiting for the 3.1.2 setup. Right now I have the VIZIO S5430W-C2. I'm not sure how much of an upgrade I'll see going with the new atmos bar. This will be paired with a Vizio PQ65.

Nah...its already late summer. 9/20 is fall. So, all of you have it wrong. They must have meant late summer in the Southern Hemisphere, which is like March 2019. Y'all are so prejudiced in thinking everything is Northern Hemisphere-centric. What the Aussies and Africans and South Americans don't count and late summer is always September? I think not!

Give Vizio a break...producing mass production, cookie-cutter consumer electronics for sale by the pallet at highly discounted big box stores is an *art* not a science, and like any Picasso, Rembrandt, or Caravaggio you have to give it time!

Long time lurker, but couldn't resist asking if anybody else noticed this subtle change. I noticed yesterday, but perhaps was before then. When Vizio announced the new soundbars, the press announcements had "With its wireless subwoofer, it will deliver frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz with SPLs up to 105dB." Vizio's dolby-atmos page also had this 20Hz-20kHz as one of their features. But now the feature page has no mention of 20Hz and instead says "Our deepest bass with wireless subwoofer" with "As low as 25 Hz". Perhaps some over promising and under delivering now that release is getting finalized. But hey, that means it should be getting close, right?

Yeah I do remember them saying 20 Hz originally. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see and hope for the best.

Wow dude, respect. This has got to be the first time Caravaggio was mentioned on avsforum.

Officially dual format. I don't care what I buy, as long as it's not a combo.

Hey! I made the same southern hemisphere joke pages ago!


Regarding the looks of the Vizio, I hope it has a nice Vermeer… I mean, veneer.

Haha “late summer” FOR SURE. They are cutting it close. But I’d rather have at least a semi ironed out product rather than a rushed to market. But in reality, these have been “on the water” or at a port stateside just waiting to get through customs. I wouldn’t think they would be able to make any tweaks stateside..

Nice Vermeer there! And if you did previously cite the Southern Hemisphere before me, I see your pointillism, err..point, in wanting to get credit for that. Seurat, er... sure that!

Anyway, lets hope the info in your reposted tweet is accurate and we can see how good (or not) these things are against the Sammy N950 and Yammi 5600.

All I know is that the Vizio better come out soon, because we're almost at the end of the summer Cezanne.


Has anybody on this thread actually heard the 5.1.4? A more affordable alternative to the Samsung would be appreciated

Six days of Summer left to go. What categorizes "late summer"? Like, the last day of Summer? Does it mean "too late for Summer"?

Delivery as soon as the 22nd sounds like that's when it really comes out and this is some kind of placeholder/preorder. Also, isn't that price different than what we saw some posts back?

I have a store 39 miles away that shows as "on display" and "in stock". I kind of want to go grab one to try it out. But I'm just going to wait for the 5.1.4...

Sam's club has it online for $449.

I wonder if Costco will carry it also.

Thanks 4 the update! I'm Canadian & it has yet to appear on Canadian Best Buy website. I'm going to wait until the 5.1.4. Setup is released since it adds DTS Virtual:X
& D.V. pass thru.

Where do you see that 5.1.4 will do DTS:X?
