Trying to decide between this or a sonos beam + sub (3x the price I know!)
Plus Sonos doesn't have Dolby Atmos.

No, they are wired to the subwoofer... but the subwoofer is wireless.
Would it still work if I chose not use the rear speakers ?

I would imagine it would still work as a neutered 3.1 set.. should be fine.

I picked it up tonight and I'll be setting it up tomorrow and putting it through it's pases.
Let me know how it sounds and what you did with the wires for the rear speakers. I don't want to have them running on the ground.

I think that's the one for $250 at Costco. I bought when it was $200 a few weeks ago.

How does this one compare with another Vizio 5.1 sound system VIZIO SB3651-F6 (beside lacking support for Dolby Atmos)?
It's $324.65 on amazon.ca right now: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07CDG12DL/

I set mine up last night... it was kind of a strange process to get the smartcast app connected so that I could setup the wifi.
But after that PITA process - I was able to upgrade the firmware to the latest version 1.2.0.1 and now everything is running well.

Too bad there's no custom EQ settings available... only preset (Movie, Music, None)...
The Music preset seems to be the best setting for all use cases.

Once you set your volume and level preferences, there's no real need to go in there again.
FWIW, it can decode DTS:X audio streams and plays it in Dolby Atmos.

I also set mine up last night and the bass was surprisingly powerful. At 20% volume, 70% bass and 70% subwoofer our eardrums felt uncomfortable and the couch was literally rumbling.
Tested for 2-3 hours with hip hop on Spotify and a movie on Netflix and I have 0 regrets paying the "premium" over cheaper soundbars.
Budget was <$300 but $379 (after masterpass) for an ATMOS ready system is alright.

Had that $120+tax Polk S1 soundbar+sub during the price-error + BB PM and it was complete garbage even though the reviews were really good. Sold that on craigslist within a month and went soundbar-less for a few months instead, sounded the same anyways.

However, I have not tested the ATMOS feature yet as Shield is not supported via Netflix's ATMOS.
I've read some workarounds on Reddit so I'll try that later.

Darn I only just found out about this system and I would have definitely gotten it for this price. Does anyone know if they’re even still available at Costco?
