Is this available in store?
Unsure. Shipping is free and I've never had an issue returning online orders in-store.

Hi all - can anyone help me out/offer advice? I'm fairly new to the whole Home Theater stuff. Would this be a good purchase for my media room? Or should I go a different route/consider something else in the future? Totally lost so could use anyone's help!

More details:
I have a small media room that is approximately 15ftx15ft square shape. It has 12 ft ceilings.

It is pre-wired for a 5.1.2 setup.

Here are some pictures of what I have available in the room:
Attached image (HT1) - 2 wired rear speaker connections to the ceiling (at the 12 ft height)

Attached image (HT2) - I have Power & Connections that route from the top of the TV (I'm guess a TV is supposed mounted above these)

Attached image (HT3) - The connections from the top of the TV are running to the bottom and there is wiring for amp/sub/etc (I'm assuming).

If anyone could suggest if this Atmos bar would be a good purchase, please let me know. How would I mount the rear speakers - since I am prewired for the rear at the 12 ft height, can I mount them up there or is this system not really designed for mounting at that height.

Ty in advance!

This is not the right system for you. Since you have a dedicated media room and you're already wired, you should be getting a receiver and separate speaker system, not a sound bar system. You'll end up with much better quality sound overall.

This system is not meant to be wired up high. The atmos in this system is an upward firing speaker on top of the sound bar and the back speakers. Since your room is already prewired for atmos I might recommend just looking into buying a receiver and speaker system separately if you have/want to spend the money. It'll run you probably around $600.

Thanks for the advice!

I might pick this up for my living room then - it's a larger space, maybe 20x20 but it's more of an "open" floor plan & 12 ft ceilings.

I hope it will be beneficial for filling sound in that big of an open area.

Appreciate your quick responses Complejo & nadus! Reps coming your way.

Amazing price. The logic alone for decoding and AMPING 9 DISCRETE channels must be $200. So getting speakers and Costco warranty worth it.

It will be challenging for me to place the rear speakers in my room because of the challenging layout. Would there be any issues in using this soundbar without the rear speakers? Is it still worth it?

Can you purchase a satellite speakers stand?

definitely, nice new and improved from early atmos bar. I've had mine for a few years over ARC with only a few problems, with sleep or I need to refresh CEC on my TCL TV

no it's built in SB.

I've had it in Google Home home audio mixed up with other smart spkrs. Plenty of inputs and advanced sound, my 5.1.2 remote sort of sucks. You have to have the right shaped room for atmos. I have vaulted ceiling but kept it anyway.
So vaulted ceiling negates atmos effect? I've got vaulted

Thanks. Bought this to replace my SB3651-E6. It is such a horrible 5.1 vizio compare to the first set I had. Hopefully this one works out for me

yes, must have flat smooth ceilings to bounce the up firing back down. You can adjust height but not for vaulted ceiling. https://youtu.be/VEN_WCDxd4w

Thanks. So what's the solution for vaulted? Does it help if in the corner of the room?

there is a virtual atmos on the remote for simulated atmos. I thought about mounting on the wall to higher but probably not worth the trouble. I'm not an audiophile obviously, but movies do sound nice and music rattles the floor with sub.

Sorry I meant to say I have the SB3651-F6 and it passes 4k and HDR so I would assume this would as well since it is an upgraded model. Hope this helps.
