I have this bar as well and love it...the sound quality for dialogue is where this bar shines.

Every time I see this soundbar pop up I am compelled to give it kudos. I bought this before finishing our basement and installing a home theater. It is more than ample to fill my 1800 square foot first floor with sound and for its price you can't beat it. Does it compare to actual home theater? By no means! But if you're cramped for space..or more importantly money..this is a great buy.

How does this compare to Yamaha ATS 2070 in Costco...? Any inputs would help...I had ordered from Costco for 200 and if this is better, I could cancel the order and get this instead. Thanks!

No HDMI ARC, which is unquestionably THE way to connect to your modern TV (almost all newer TVs support ARC).
I actually have this soundbar, and it has excellent sound, but as I said, no HDMI ARC. You can teach it to recognize your TV's remote to control volume and power, but its still not as good as ARC.
I'm not buying any more soundbars without it.
Unless you're doing ATMOS, I don't see ARC as a game changer for a soundbar.

Assuming your TV properly passes DD/DTS (and hopefully transcodes DD+ to DD), the optical out to a soundbar can do everything you need in the non-ATMOS soundbar space. On top of that, set the audio output volume to Variable, and you can control the volume with your TV remote and just leave the bar powered on.

ARC (just like many non-core features of the HDMI standard) can become a headache when it doesn't work as intended/designed and often for no clear or diagnosable reason. If you don't need a specific functionality it offers, I would avoid it.

I bought this for 149 in the last deal in May 2017.
The sound quality is very good, powerful 240W and dialogue enhancer works great for movies.
It has a wireless sub too which is a plus at this price range.

However, I find some niggling issues:
1) Sometimes the subwoofer seems lost and only the bar works. I have to reset the subwoofer.
2) The audio connection usually should be automatic as the TV wakes up. But many times I find that the sound comes from the TV output .... and I need to switchoff/on the bar or I need to press the opt1
source on the sound bar remote.
3 )Also the remote is really tiny.
I am not sure they are really soundbar connection issues or my kids messing the bar up by pressing buttons time to time.

I keep looking for a deal on a bar with a Bluetooth transmitter so I can listen with headphones when my kids are sleeping. Any ideas from the community?

As one might suspect with a bar that is only 2" high; the midrange is quite lacking.
I agree l have this and the mid range suck

you don't need a soundbar to use bluetooth headphones you need a tv with bluetooth

$7,200 TV and it works just fine.

So please, explain to me what TV's wont accept this? We had no issues with it, we wanted a temporary soundbar while we figured out our new audio for our livingroom, now its in our bedroom with a $4k TV. I mention price because most here will never spend above $2,400 on a TV going by statistics.

If it's capable of the highest end of TV's.. I'm going to take a wild guess that it'll work on everything below. Now not investing in older technology, I mean yeah but for $150/$160 - Polk Audio is an excellent choice for budget audio that sounds nice.

I think for most consumers, this will do just fine. And our controller synced up with it automatically for the record, no second remote.

What do you all think about something like this compared to two Sonos One speakers paired for stereo? Considering them because could dual use for music also.
