Big Audio for Your Big Screen.

Big Audio for Your Big ScreenA longer sound bar allows a wider separation between the left and right channels for a superior stereo experience. This added length also projects sound across a larger area, creating a wider sound stage that's ideal for big screen home theater.

Sound and Vision logo"It wasn’t that long ago that even the priciest flagship models were marginal performers, but Vizio’s affordably priced S5430w-C2 can provide a surprisingly satisfying home theater experience. That says a lot about Vizio’s commitment to push the limits of the category without straying too far from the entry-level price point.” - Steve Guttenberg, SoundandVision.com
