You will get the mounting brackets if you wish to mount the unit on a wall but it can also be comfortably placed on your table. It comes with any cables you may need, is very easy to set-up, just plug it in and you’re pretty much ready to go.
You have the DTS TruSurround for immersive virtual surround sound, DTS TruVolume for consistent volume for audio sources and you just need to set the volume once, Dolby Digital as an audio standard for multimedia streaming content. It offers 100 decibels of immersive sound to fill a large room for a great crystal clear surround sound experience with 1 percent or less harmonic distortion. You can have the TV volume all the way up and you will not notice any distortion and this is something to really appreciate considering the low price point. You’ll see the Power button, Bluetooth, Volume Up and Down and Input buttons. Sound quality is really good for such a small investment, whether you get the 38 inch or the 29 inch model depending on your needs and you will most certainly get better, crisper and richer sound than the regular TV speakers. Vizio is a good brand for televisions and sound bars and you’ll find that their products tend to be reliable, durable and functional. But for that very deep and clear bass you will need that additional subwoofer and still expect to hear that theater or concert hall like sound that is also rather clear at lower volumes.
