Pretty sure he was joking. Hence the emoji.

Pass on this...without ARC/HDMI it's just a literal bar of sound. It's actually a portable bluetooth speaker make to look like a sound bar with 2 channel analog connectivity.

I made the mistake buying a DefTech W Studio and that sucked hard even with their 8inch Sub.

*While it does do coaxial/optical you won't get digital surround.

Mostly Wrong.

An optical input is totally Digital, never analog. Most but not all TVs convert the Dolby Digital Surround signal to Digital PCM Stereo...but it is still digital quality, a heck of a lot better than Bluetooth in terms of distortion, clarity, frequency response.

Even if you had HDMI inputs... a cheap 4 speaker soundbar like this would never give you actual surround. Point is, at this price point not having HDMI makes almost no difference, everything else limits the quality more.

This was designed as a cheap way to improve your TV's sound without big speakers/subwoofers. I bet it does that just great.

when I was adding it to my shopping cart, a pop-up showed up
asking if I wanted professional installation for just $179...

is that a good option? or can I plug this speaker in by myself?

Smilie

By seriously.... I want to get this and connect it to my Amazon
Echo Dot only... I got the Echo Dot from Best Buy when it was
on sale for $29 a weeks ago.

I assume the $29 Echo Dot + $25 soundbar will sound much
better than getting a regular full-size $99 Amazon Echo, right?

It's definitely easy enough to connect yourself.

The one you linked is a different (older) model.
Different Amazon item all together.
It even looks different.

This review is not exactly the same model. The refurb "2018 version" is the TT-SK15UD.

Probably very similar, but supposedly upgraded sound and remote control functions. Reviewed one isthis. [amazon.com]
