VIZIO S5451w-C2 & S3851w-C2 Sound Bars

VIZIO S5451w-C2 Sound Bar

VIZIO today introduced its flagship 54″ 5.1 Sound Bar System (model S5451w-C2), which is designed for use with 55-inch HDTVs and larger. The sleek and powerful $500 sound bar provides a greater separation between the left and right channels, creating for a wider sound stage to fill the room. The 54″ 5.1 Sound Bar System also features a third center channel for enhanced dialogue clarity, and is equipped with two rear satellite speakers and a wireless 8″ subwoofer. This combination delivers an immersive surround sound experience with low frequency response as low as 35 Hz for low bass with up to 104 dB of room-rocking, crystal-clear sound and less than 1% total harmonic distortion

VIZIO also announced a less expensive, smaller 38″ 5.1 Sound Bar System (model S3851w-C2), which is designed to complement 42-inch sized HDTVs. This system features two rear satellite speakers and a wireless subwoofer, pumping out up to 100 dB of immersive surround sound into the living room.

Providing powerful bass performance and crisp audio detail, both the 54″ and 38″ 5.1 Sound Bar Systems feature Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, which further add to a more engaging listening experience. DTS TruVolume is included as well, providing intelligent volume-leveling for less abrupt fluctuations when switching from a television show to commercial. The 54″ 5.1 Sound Bar System also features VIZIO Surround Matrix technology and integrated aptX Bluetooth audio coding technology for near CD-quality music streaming via supported wireless devices3. The 38″ 5.1 Sound Bar System features DTS Studio Sound as well as DTS Circle Surround.

Conveniently, the large- and mid-size 5.1 sound bar systems are sold with all cables included and offer an intuitive setup process. Consumers will also appreciate HDMI connectivity and a hassle-free set-up with the inclusion of all necessary cables in the box.
