Been looking at soundbars for a while and came across this deal. I'm just looking for upgraded sound for the family room (don't want rears, no place to put them). All the other prices I've seen for this are ~$300, so could be hot? I like that it has chromecast built in, so can do multirooom audio fairly cheaply.

A good description of hooking it up.

I have the 3.0 bar part of this with an old giant subwoofer. Love the sound for the size. Built in chromecase audio and bluetooth are nice.

Paid $99 for the 3.0 bar alone, so this is a great deal.

Big plus is you can dial up the center speaker in the bar so you can hear the dialog over sound effects and music.

Solid deal.

Fair discount. This 40" Model SB4031-D5 on Amazon 3rd parties show it at $178. The larger 45" model is >$300

Price ending in .97 at Costco is a marked down/clearance price. This looks like a good deal.

Another plus: has HDMI ARC.

From the manual:

What is HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC)?
Using HDMI ARC, your TV can send audio to the sound bar using an HDMI cable.
You will need to connect your sound bar to your TV's HDMI ARC port using an HDMI cable that is ARC compatible

Interesting option. The one you posted has deeper bass (20hz vs 35hz), but doesn't have the ARC or Chromecast (both of which I wanted). Also, the 4031 has 3 channels (L/R and Center). Hypothetically, you might have better stereo separation with the larger bar (but if you're THAT worried about it, you should be upping your audio budget).

Was looking at the SB3621n-E8 from Costco for $130, but for $20 more I think I'll jump on this one. Some reviews of spotty connectivity with HDMI ARC, but optical or coax will work for my situation, so no problem there. Good find, OP, thanks for this!
