VIZIO SB3820-C6: an excellent range of sound

VIZIO SB3820-C6 review & specs

VIZIO SB3820-C6 has very crisp and nice balanced upper and midrange, there is no need to deal with those levels.

This soundbar is compatible with a subwoofer. It has several ways to connect to your TV (optical, RCA, orange cord). You can connect to it through Bluetooth, and play music directly from your phone, etc. It is very convenient to adjust the automatic volume control in games. The sound is clear and crisp, non-perceiving and invisible high frequencies, easily audible mids providing a full range of sound in music, and superb deep bass.

Design

Wall mounts leave enough space to run cables behind the wall or to the TV. Adjust the buttons 1/4 turn until they fall completely into the cleat with no force. If they are tightly screwed into the soundbar, they won’t get in the wall completely. For each bracket, only one good anchor or stud is needed, the other can be a screw, only slightly tightened.

The main unit of the SB3820-C6 looks like a typical soundbar, in a flattened-cut-off design. From the side, it looks quite stylish, with an attractive matt-black grille for speakers on the front panel. Many soundbars do not have a convenient stand for installation near the TV, while the SB3820-C6 has two spaced strong silver supports on the bottom. The design of the base panel of the console is extremely simple and includes only the volume control, system on and off buttons.

At the top of the soundbar is the buttons for basic control, and the included remote control is needed to turn the surround sound function on and off and adjust the bass/treble. The line of white LEDs is just telling you what volume level it is and to display which input you are using.

Features

The inputs are one of good VIZIO SB3820-C6 specs too. Both coax digital and optical digital is something unique and useful. The top of the unit features a minimum of controls. They could be a little sluggish but they're very useful if you lose the remote. At the front of the bar is Vizio's dreaded "display:" the volume level gauge is useful enough, but the series of dots it uses for input selection is nearly impenetrable. In addition to good sound quality, Wi-Fi connection means that calls, texts, and other notifications will not interrupt the playback of music through the speakers.

For its price, it is impossible to find something better. No rattling or defects, just crisp sound to enjoy. The Bluetooth functionality is equally flawless. It connects quickly and sounds as good as any other source. Simply press the BT button (on the remote or the speaker) and go into the Bluetooth discovery option on whatever device you use.
