Anyone have experience with this sound bar? There are many positive reviews for the HTB550. Does not seem like there is any difference between the two. I could be wrong though.

Bought it and have it set up for a TV on top of fireplace. Using it as 2 separate speakers with the subwoofer hidden behind the sofa.
Comparing over TV speakers, it sounds way better. The bass from the sub can be adjusted to be subtle or a little bit overpowering depending on preferences.
The Bluetooth feature makes pairing with my phones/tablets as easy as it gets.
You will have to adjust the "dialogue" (which seems to adjust treble) and "subwoofer" (bass) levels on the remote to get it at the desired sound you want.

Overall I am quite happy with the sound system and would not hesitate to purchase another for my other TVs.

Edit: I have to add that it doesn't have an LCD screen and uses LED lights to indicate changes in sound levels, audio input selection, blutooth pairing...etc
It took me a couple minute to get used to it but after that I like the minimal feature since I already have tons of LED lights where I've positioned my TV.

I was originally going to FS to price match at Visions, but since my local Visions didn't have it and it states limited qty on vision's website I figured I'd go to ME since it would be less hassle. But if you're able to get it price matched at FS/BB congrats! I recommend BB since they offer points as well.

Much thanks (and thanked), OP! I've actually had my eye on this model for a while, almost pulled the trigger on the current deal at London Drugs for $250, but ended up getting it from FS tax in for $201.xx.

I don't have room or inclination for a full 5.1/7.1 setup, but the sound coming out of this is amazing!

It comes with the receiver, speakers, and subwoofer only.
