Vizio V-Series 2.1 V21x-J8 Home Theater Soundbar | High Sound, Low Price [Review]

Jason Million

Coming from a 5.1 setup and going down to 2.1, I am impressed with what Vizio is offering. Here you are getting two speakers(inside the soundbar) and of course the low frequency from the subwoofer for bass. There isn’t any Dolby Atmos and DTS:X but are still getting Dolby Audio and DTS Digital Surround. If you look on that remote there is a button that says “VRT:X” which indicates virtual surround sound. Using this injunction with Dolby and DTS presented some pleasant results. For instance, in “Bumblebee”, dialogue b/w Bumblebee and Blitzwing is rather clear as is all the explosion and action around it. In “Spider Man: Far from Home”, a scene with Mysterio where he is in Spider Man’s head, it feels if though he was coming from you at all angles with Virtual X turned on.  This little 5” subwoofer puts in some surprising work. Its uncanny how that little box can become such a room rattler. This is on the default setting of the sub which can be increased for more thump.
