With eARC it should pair up just fine.

Well, depends if he is just using the built in speakers, this will sound infinitely better. But, sure, there are better sounding soundbars for more $$$.

Apparently there are two models, the TS813 and the TS8132. I assume the TS8132 is the newer and current model. The biggest difference appears to be that the TS813 does not have optical and the TS8132 does, so if optical is important to you this could be a concern.

Since the Walmart listing says it supports optical and comes with an optical cable then it should be the TS8132. But about half the reviews say it doesn't have optical, so I guess it's a crap shoot on which one you get. I ordered one for shipping thinking that I might stand a better chance of getting the new model instead of one that's been on the store shelf for a year, but I could be wrong. I didn't feel like driving down there and fighting the crowd to find out which one they had.

The TCL product page is at https://www.tcl.com/us/en/products/sound-bars/alto-8-series/alto-8-plus-3-1-2-channel-sound-bar-ts81... [tcl.com] To further confuse matters near the top of the page it lists optical, but in the Specifications sections it says Optical = NO. The downloadable specs PDF says Yes.

I guess I'll find out in a few days when it arrives, and at least Walmart is easy for returns.
There is no winning here. Fewer details people complain, more details people complain. Make up your damn mind lol
Sorry. All I did was copy and paste the description from the Walmart website. I'm just someone who was looking for a soundbar and stumbled upon this deal.

Any owners have comments on this? Feels like the majority of the reviews are incentivized.

Looks like this link is to something else... Version without the standalone subwoofer, so no surprise there's no punch bass in the review.

I just ordered and will have it delivered in a few hours. I figured it has eARC which is just as good if not better then optical. We will see if it's worth 150

So how does this speaker handle 6 channel audio if it only has 4 channels? Does it just ignore the rear channels? I could live with that if the center channel for clearer dialog was still present.

For those of you who jumped on the 8i only to find it has terrible latency issues, according to Rting's review the 8+ does not have the same behavior
