Also on ebay under BB same price if that works better: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VIZIO-3-0...Swf-xZm-W4
Sells on the bay for $99 as an open box, normally around $130-140 in stores.
This has been in and out of stock all weekend. IIRC these are the 2016 models and are being clearanced out for the 36" 2017 model.
HDMI in and out with ARC, Bluetooth, vizio-cast/chromecast audio capable, optical in, subwoofer out, wireless and wired networking capable. Also has USB and RCA connections.
Its a fairly compact sound bar, can be wall mounted or set on a stand. Comes with a full set of cables (optical, HDMI, 3.5 to 3.5, etc). As a 3.0 speaker it includes a center channel so you can pump up the dialog volume for the 97% of movies where they decided you'd rather hear music and explosions than what the actors are saying.
Comes with a remote control and can be managed with the VizioCast smart phone/tablet app. Nice if you have a Vizio tv as both can be managed from the same app.
I plugged it into an existing subwoofer I had and dialed its bass back to let the subwoofer handle the low end stuff. Only "problem" I had is that I had to run the setup app 9 times to get it to finally take. Keeping the phone with the setup app within 12" of the left side of the soundbar helped. Once it downloaded its latest firmware it was problem free after that.
