Highly recommend putting another $50 for the SB3651-E6, it's 5.1, has HDMI Arc and SmartCast.

I have it in my Family room and love it, amazed with the sound quality for the price and configured it as the default music speaker for the Google Home Mini making the combo a much better option than the Google Home Max for a lot less...

Have it in our condo...perfect for the relatively small space to add a great amount of good quality sound.

Using bluetooth with our phones is also great if we just want to play spotify without the TV on - fills the whole suite up.

FYI

$483.33 on Amazon.ca (+$75.72 shipping - third party sellers)
4.5 Stars on Amazon.COM
5 Stars on CNET - Considered 'The King of the Budget Sound Bars'
$148.00 USD on BHPhotovideo.COM (free shipping to CANADA*) - Rated 4.8/5 Stars

Great speakers! I find the Truvolume feature is quite broken. It turns off everytime you change episodes or watch another movie. You have to turn it off then back on. Do you have this problem as well?

I have 2 of these soundbars in my house and they are awesome. No issues and they throw the sound wide nicely so it really does come out like surround sound. The subwoofer bass is also very nice. Great affordable sound system and it gets high marks online if you google it as one of the best budget soundbars you can get according to CNET.

To be honest i have not used this feature as I do not watch much TV, mostly movies from Netflix which is is pretty good on volume levels...

I have multiplie sources with HDMI out. I would guess I would need some type of HDMI switch?

If his doesn't have HDMI, how does it connect to the TV?

Tried to buy this but the Masterpass discount does not work. Yes, I've used Masterpass on a previous deal to buy a bidet about 4 months ago so it was working. Wish they test these out to ensure it worked. So frustrating when you consider the hoops Masterpass makes you go through - and then not work :(

Agreed, have one too and it's great for what you pay.
For 50 more you get HDMI in out and arc

The masterpass discount limits you to one use per Costco account. I believe I bypassed it by not putting in my Costco membership number, and signed up using a different email.

I thought it was once per promotion? So I guess I'd need to create another account. Don't know if I'd even bother.

All of your HDMI inputs plug into the TV itself, you then use an optical cable from the TV to the soundbar.

Is the advantage of HDMI arc only if you use an av reciever?
