BestBuy eBay have the 2017 Smartcast 36" 5.1 Wireless Soundbar System SB3651-E6 Open Box, Excellent for $160.99 + free ship (+ tax)

As of 8/23 at 1100 CST, eBay store is back in stock....

I verified through chat that their open-box excellent includes a full 1-year warranty. Their definition of open-box excellent: "Products in Excellent condition look brand new with no physical flaws, scratches or scuffs and include all original parts and accessories. The product will be in its original packaging or a suitable replacement box.""




This is the cheapest I can find, of course it isn't 'brand new' but Best Buy currently has it 'on sale' at $229.99 so a pretty decent discount for open box, excellent, including full warranty. Sams Club shows it new at $199.99 but don't have membership to verify that. I can't find cheaper on eBay as well.

Note that the subwoofer is wireless and the rear speakers connect by wire to the subwoofer (but only one wire, no power cable for rear speakers). This is their new 2017 model for the 5.1 system. I imagine more will be released, but this is their only 5.1 system that has been out for 2017 thus far (according to their website).

I bought the 3.0 version without the subwoofer off the bay for $87 but there were a few cheaper options. Add your own subwoofer like I did. Sam's club does have this 5.1 system for $199, I saw it the other day.

Takes HDMI and optical in, has a subwoofer and hdmi out, is a bluetooth speaker and also takes chromecast audio input. So you can stream audio from phones/tablets or google home.

Very slim and short, just a few inches. Pretty good sound. A little flat in the midrange which is to be expected due to the speaker sizes but nothing bad. I replaced a 48" vizio soundbar that was much larger in every respect but had no bluetooth/chromecast. The new one sounds better except for that tiny bit of missing midrange.

Also has wired ethernet and wireless AC built in. However the ethernet doesn't work out of the box and the android app is super squirrely. You HAVE to set it up with wireless first (and it took 9 times with the android app before it set up), it helps to keep your phone within a foot of the left side of the bar, the ios app may work better, and after its set up and downloads its firmware update the wired ethernet will work. Manual advises to turn the unit off to get it to download latest firmware.

For those wondering, I bought this and coming from the SB3820-C6, this is just awesome. Great sound overall!

I am no audiophile by any means, but I had an Onkyo 10" powered subwoofer with the SB3820. With this wireless 5", this is noticeably better.

Adding the center and rear speakers gives a world of difference for only $160.99 + tax.
