The Vizio V51 soundbar range has a new entry: the V51x-J6. This is a soundbar that is one of those unsuspecting pieces of tech that looks quiet - and is anything but. Perhaps you've heard of the Vizio V51x-J6, especially if you're in the market for a new soundbar - or perhaps your first soundbar. It's the 2021 version of a Vizio V51 soundbar that came out last year - the H6. As far as I know, they're identical. Both offer a central soundbar, a wireless subwoofer, and two wired satellite speakers with an LED-backlit remote. Both offer 5.1 Dolby Audio and DTS Digital Surround sound (but no Dolby Atmos).

And even though it's not the incredibly expensive Elevate, this soundbar puts out fantastic, punchy 5.1 surround sound that will have your home feeling like your local movie theater. So, is the Vizio V51x-J6 worth it? Let's get into it.
