Sound & Vision 2014 Top Pick of the Year Award
"Once again, VIZIO’s soundbars, tested last year in 3.0-channel and 5.1-channel versions at the expanded 54-inch width provide extraordinary sound and value for their asking prices – now reduced to $170 and $350, respectively."

Sleek Sophistication Inside and Out.
Deep Bass Technology.
The VIZIO 54" 5.1 sound bar features an integrated Deep Bass Module, which provides incredible low frequency responses for deep, room-shaking bass.
Big Audio for Your Big Screen.
A longer sound bar allows a wider separation between the left and right channels for a superior stereo experience. The VIZIO 54” sound bar also features a third (center) audio channel for enhanced dialog clarity.
"This VIZIO is a large, affordably priced, true 5.1-channel sound bar system that actually plays loud, with respectable base extension and very presentable sound." - Sound & Vision
Audio Built to Boom.
Home Theater Made for the Big Stage.
The VIZIO 54" 5.1 sound bar fills your room across a wider listening angle with up to 104 dB of crystal-clear audio at less than 1% harmonic distortion.2 The wireless subwoofer delivers thunderous bass without clutter for low-frequency response. For the peak in home theater, 5.1 features rear satellite speakers to envelop any room in a truly immersive surround sound experience.
The audio standard for cinema, broadcast, DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming content, Dolby Digital® surround sound provides dramatic spatial dimension to soundtracks and enhanced audio definition for an engaging listening experience.

VIZIO Surround Matrix
VIZIO Surround Matrix helps deliver an immersive audio experience by converting two channel audio into simulated multi-channel surround sound.
"For anyone who desires a genuine 5.1 surround-sound experience without breaking the bank or cluttering up a room with speakers and wires, Vizio's 54-inch soundbar is a good choice." - AVSForum 10/10/14
