Design

VIZIO SB3821-C6 has a solid construction, a wireless Bluetooth subwoofer, and remote control. The bar has wall-mounting adapters and square rubber pads on the bottom. This is an exceptional Sound Bar speaker system, which has been voted the top-selling sound system on Amazon.

Most of us like the simple, clean design and VIZIO designers understand this pretty well. SB3821-C6 is one of the cleanest and sleekest looking soundbars in its segment. It features black grille and black panels wrapped all the way around the bar. The added remote control allows this to be mounted so that the controls are hidden completely. Only the side panels are finished in a brushed aluminum texture, giving you some contrast. This applies to the subwoofer as well.

Features

VIZIO SB3821-C6 has patch cables for just about every way to connect with a TV were included. The instructions are clear enough, and the subwoofer pairs with the system without a hitch. Also included are brackets to wall mount the soundbar. The main VIZIO SB3821-C6 specs are the presence of the Sound Bar wider 'sound stage' than its diminutive size, and it is well matched to the subwoofer. It can fill the room at higher volumes without distortion. Viewing movies yields a pleasant experience without missing most of the LFE's (low-frequency effects) that are carefully crafted into most movies, and sometimes provide essential cues for the viewing experience. Very loud and clear sounding during movies especially action movies.

Another feature is an auxiliary mixed-on always-selected audio input. Better power-saving mode is something that you will be strongly impressed with. There is a mode where it will shut itself off when not used for some period of time, there's no "auto wake up" feature, so you need to disable the power-saving mode. The Bluetooth works like a charm. No skips or lag. It's a snap to pair it and stream music - but be warned that it will also stream your phone alerts. Just put your phone on silent to avoid that.

With Dolby digital surround sound you get the best audio listening experience thanks to its ability to give a dramatic dimension to soundtracks and enhanced audio definition. Sound is clear as a bell across the audio spectrum and can easily exceed your sound pressure tolerance. The subwoofer is not earth-shaking but chimes in seamlessly with well-balanced effect. And you feel it hit 20Hz, unlike others which claim it but don't deliver.
