I would not know because this item was not even able to be hooked up to my modern hd tv. it did not have the right plug to hook up.
That’s correct. You’d either need to run an optical cable out of your tv to the optical input on the sound bar, or you could use a headphone auxiliary output (if your tv has it) to the aux input on the speaker.
In my opinion I would say get a A surround sound system more than just a sound bar because I don’t think a sound bar but especially this sound bar is going to give you the volume you are looking for and having multiple speakers that a sound system has would be a much better option for you. A sound bar is more of just enhancing the sound but not making the sound crazy loud or anything like that. I hope this helps you on your journey
There are different modes to choose from, but no specific bass controls.
First off, HDMI ARC (audio return channel) allows for an audio signal from a box (like one provides by DirecTV) to pass to the television, and then back out again to the sound bar or stereo receiver. Standard HDMI connection cannot do this, as it does not support two way audio transmission. Nearly all televisions produced within the last 5 years, and even out to 10 years or longer, if they have HDMI inputs, will have a dedicated HDMI ARC input. It would be labeled as such right next to the television’s input.
Optical cables are made of higher quality materials (glass based fiber optic strands), and as such are shielded from electromagnetic interference, as they transmit sound via light waves. HDMI ARC cables are constructed using copper as their principal material. Copper is susceptible to this kind of interference.
For most people, an optical cable connection will provide an acceptable level of audio quality. Optical provides up to 5.1 support, as does HDMI ARC. However, for cinephiles wanting the best possible A/V experience, HDMI ARC is the way to go, unquestionably. Optical cables don’t support Dolby Digital Plus, True HD, or DTS HD. The HDMI ARC does this beautifully.
HDMI ARC has the added benefit of supporting television volume control from the tv remote, via what is called CEC technology. Once everything is properly set up, and you’re watching the big game, a live broadcast, or a movie, your tv remote can control how loud the sound bar outputs its signal. Optical cable can’t do that.
In most cases, HDMI ARC is the best answer. You’ll still get pretty good sound from optical, and if your A/V equipment is spaced out, requiring longer cables, optical won’t see as much signal degradation; but the HDMI ARC is superior in it supports far more audio formats. And as HDMI eARC becomes the norm with upcoming A/V releases, 7.1 will be supported.
A slide off cover on the back of the remote reveals the battery compartment for 3 AAA batteries.
Yes, it comes with a small wall mount. (Depending on how you mount, you’ll have to worry about cords being visible, etc.)
