VIZIO SB36512-F6 review

Comparing VIZIO SB36512-F6 vs VIZIO SB3651-F6 I found out that their channel quantity is almost the same. The first has 5.1.2 while the opponent owns 5.1. Vizio SB 36512-F6 is one of the most inexpensive ways to get the Dolby Atmos element in your arsenal of home speakers. The compact design includes dedicated rear speakers and the number of inputs exceeds the number of competitors with Bluetooth, HDMI input / output and Chromecast Wi-Fi music. VIZIO SB36512-F6

VIZIO SB3651-F6 review

The bar of this setup is covered by fabric at the front and the top, which unfortunately can easily get dirty or damaged. The Vizio SB36512-F6 has great sound format support over ARC. It supports the common Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound formats found on streaming platforms and Blu-ray discs. The remote is fairly simple and allows you to control playback and basic functions of the bar. It has a small screen on the top which is informing you of the inputs, etc. VIZIO SB3651-F6

VIZIO SB36512-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

VIZIO SB3651-F6 pros & cons

Pros

  • The sound is clear, bass is more than sufficient
  • Once you get used to it, the remote is even fine for what it is
  • The room I put this in is also really large, with coffered ceiling and an open floor plan - the sound fills the space no problem

Cons

  • I do wish I could figure out how to control the soundbar volume with my main remote. It's in the instructions but it's more complicated than I can handle right now
