Features

There are 2.0 built-in channels. Output wattage is 100W. This soundbar has very clear and well balanced upper and midrange. No need to adjust those levels. Other reviewers noted that the bass is lacking, but that's what you should expect and that's exactly what I was looking for. I have a wired subwoofer that I like, so I wanted a sound bar with an RCA subwoofer out. Very few still have this option. You're just stuck with the wireless sub that they come with. Moving on to other features, we see both Dolby Digital and DTS TruSurround as well as DTS TruVolume as standard. Not that these are rare in this price range, but their presence is absolutely a plus. Lastly, you can use your VIZIO SB3820-C6 as a Bluetooth speaker. In terms of I/O, you get a set of analog and digital audio inputs, a sub output and a USB in.

Design and build

Soundbar design isn’t really something many people look into. However, different brands have different approaches. VIZIO defaulted to the most basic and minimalist style possible. Their SB3820-C6 is all block like, very similar to a nicely painted piece of 4×4 lumber. The entire soundbar is wrapped in a decent black fabric that acts as a grille. You will find it everywhere but the ends. These come in form of brushed aluminum panels with VIZIO logo on them.

Connectivity

Apart from playing audio sounds from wirelessly connected sources, the VIZIO SB3821-C6 also allows for external connectivity of devices with its USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack, stereo RCA, coaxial inputs and digital optical. WAV audio format's playback is possible with this high-level soundbar thanks to the USB port. It includes digital optical and digital coaxial cords for RCA to the 3.5mm connectivity.

Setup

In a straightforward setup of VIZIO SB3820-C6 main soundbar and a potent wireless subwoofer, you will have transformed your TV audio quality delivery to a whole new system.
