VIZIO SB3651-E6 review

Concerning VIZIO SB3651-E6 vs SB36512-F6, E6 doesn’t try to use DSP or artificial processing to simulate a surround-sound experience. Instead, a pair of dedicated speakers handle side-surround duties. The speakers are small enough to pass inspection from most spouses, but they'll raise eyebrows from home theater purists. The surround speakers plug into the subwoofer with very long long speaker wires terminating with RCA connectors. There are 5.1 built-in channels. VIZIO SB3651-E6

VIZIO SB 36512-F6 pros & cons

Pros

  • The satellite speakers have color coded inputs of blue and gray to help indicate which speaker is which
  • I’ve also Chromecasted music from my Google Play Music library directly onto the soundbar and having the sound setting being defaulted to “music” instead of “direct” also blew my mind away

Cons

  • It does not process HDR color information accurately with apple tv 4k
