As goog as it gets.

 

Wall mounting with provided little L bracket was easy and cosmetically its looks truly nice.

I cannot say that I would spend 600.00 for a retail on a soundbar, but for the 230 bucks it was a sweet deal! Just the subwoofer is worth 130.00 anytime a day. It is serving a 50" Sony in a large master bedroom and sound is full bodied, with a nice and...

The HDMI was giving message of unauthorized video transmission, so when I got tired of it I have used a direct Tivo to TV HDMI and Tivo optical to the soundbar. It does not display the speaker status on the screen that way, but Tivo remote works the...

Consumer review by: shailendra Prasad (amazon.in)

Excellent Quality Sound ! Best audio experience on a soundbar is still by HK

 

Pros: *** Amazing sound for its price. We can't discuss the quality of a speaker set without price tags on them. Not that it is granted the more expansive will always sound better, but I find the price on SB26 to reasonable price to invest for the...
