Vizio M-Series 5.1 M51a-H6 review

Michael Gowan

The M51a-H6 delivers true 5.1 surround sound and it costs about the same as — or less than — soundbars that have to use virtual surround to try to achieve the effect. It has a lot of flexibility, whether that’s in the way you arrange the speakers, connection options or audio adjustments. And it sounds pretty good, too. 

But it takes effort to make it sound its best, and soundbars are supposed to be simple to use. In this price range, you’ll find some excellent soundbars that are easier to set up, such as the Yamaha YAS-209 or, for a little more, the Sonos Beam

But, neither of those come with satellite speakers, or offer Atmos support. If you’re looking for true 5.1 surround sound with Atmos and want to spend less than $400, the M51a-H6 is the one to buy.
