Features

This is a 2.1 sound bar system, designed to complement 40” class tv’s. The SB3621n-F8M now includes DTS Virtual:X, which is a fairly cutting edge audio codec that can simulate the surround and overhead sound of the DTS:X codec (hence the “virtual” descriptor) without actually needing the actual positioned speakers. Basically, it can make it sound like you have surround and overhead speakers without actually having them, which is quite the cool feature for a 2.1 system that remains as inexpensive as this one is.

Design and build

The subwoofer has smooth edges and the construction is very strong – it helps to exclude any distortion or unnecessary vibration. The subwoofer speaker size is 5.4 in. It also has a light panel with the “V” letter shape. The dimensions of the soundbar are 2.1x36x3.2 in, the weight is 4.4 pounds. The subwoofer dimensions are 11.8x6.7x7.9 in.

Connectivity

WAV audio format's playback is possible thanks to the USB port. It includes digital optical and digital coaxial cords for RCA to the 3.5mm connectivity.

Setup

The VIZIO SB3621n-F8M is quite simple to configure - most importantly, make sure that it is at the correct height, that it does not block the TV screen, and that there are no obstacles in front of all its speakers. Then place the subwoofer on the front wall of the room, to the right or left of the TV. You can use the digital coaxial input to connect Blu-ray, DVD players, and other digital sources that have this output. If they are devoid of coaxial output, most likely they have optics or an analogue. Another connection option (it is not in the picture) is a 3.5 mm minijack. It either replaces the analog stereo inputs, or is adjacent to them. The minijack is convenient for connecting portable digital audio devices. But they can also be connected using the RCA – minijack adapter, which is sold separately.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The sound and dialog is very clear coming from the speakers
  • Easy to set up. I ran my optical cable and power, that's it

Cons

  • I do wish I could figure out how to control the soundbar volume with my main remote
