So I installed the unit and had a test run. Let me preface to say I'm no audiophile.
I watched some TV, music and a movie. I didn't get to playing a game just yet.
The sound is very nice. I quite like it. I watched the movie Us and their Dolby Atmos track thru my Xbox One X. I didn't really notice much sound above me. Often however the soundtrack felt as though it was surrounding me, which was pretty great. I didn't really get the feeling of sound coming behind me, which I don't think I could expect that from a soundbar with no rears.
Sub felt a bit too overpowering even on +3. I suppose I could lower it though, but that seems boring.
The interface sucks. It really needs an OSD to be nice. In any event it doesn't have a ton of features to plow thru. The app for the phone is pretty basic.
The bar is too high for my TV stand so it blocks a small part of the screen and the IR, which requires me to stand up with my remote to do things on my TV. It would be less of an issue if the soundbar turned on the TV but it doesn't so that's pretty annoying.
There is no set up for my Harmony remote. I did choose the Q90R as that was available and it has worked. What it's lacking however is discrete codes for the functions.
I'm really on the fence on this soundbar and the Sony HT ST-5000, there are a number of features on the Sony I would like to have however I think that this soundbar's surround capabilities with its side firing speakers sounds better than the Sony.
I'm about 80% sure I'm going to take this back and go with the Sony as I can get the Sony for less than $200 more.
