More than anything itís mostly a matter of personal value. I get a lot of marginal enjoyment out of picture quality vs sound quality. Iím just looking for a bit of an improvement on the built in TV speakers, for dialogue in particular. The Vizio seems to really fit the bill. Might even just get the sound bar and avoid the 5.1. I really appreciate all the input.

So something like this?

https://www.costco.ca/vizio-sb362an-...100455923.html

I don't know much about the 2.1 or whether built in sub is a good idea or not. Someone else may have to chime in for that. For 2.1, there's a ton more that is relatively competitive vs Vizio.

But for 5.1, the earlier Vizio set up is hands down one of the best values out there and it's ridiculously hard to beat value and performance wise.

If you want to up the budget a bit, something like the Klipsch R-15PM might be worth looking into. Can likely find them around $400. I'm also a huge proponent of a 2.0 or 2.1 system over a soundbar, but different strokes and all.

Its hard to convince people to go beyond sound bars, but hey at least people are at least buying those and not just using the TV built in sound.


I'm actually appreciative of the TV manufacturers spending less on sound and forcing consumers to actually think about buying a sound system, even if its soundbars (there are certainly pretty solid options these days, even if nothing compares to a real system.)

Interesting enough, I picked up a TCL 5 series for my main floor a few weeks back and I am pleasantly surprised with the sound quality. Was thinking of picking up a 2.1 soundbar for it but I don't think I am going to.
