Can't be worse than the sound on the 42" Vizio my parents got on Black Friday last year. I'm there often enough I guess it'll be a cheap gift

A single solid review (4 out of 5 stars) over at bestbuy.com

this is probably good for a computer monitor setup or second TV for Kids room.

But for your "main" TV? I would get something better.

Oh My Failing Grades! I can relate to this ad so thoroughly that I absolutely must purchase the sound bar. The following line expressly captures my sentiment (emph-a-sis conveyed by consumant quotations added): "Paul and Chad-Michael are roommates. When Chad-Michael lost his job hosting vodka-tasting events, he was unable to pay the rent for "en" entire month."

Great price but lack of an optical input is a deal breaker for me.

It will work but be noticeably wider than the TV it sits in front of.

How is this in comparison to the Pinnacle soundbar for $129 at sellout.woot?

I've been looking for a wireless soundbar to use on the 32 inch Sharp Aquos in my bedroom. $50 seems like a great price.

So, what does the audio cable that comes with it look like? Red/yellow plugs on on end and a 3.5mm plug on the other?

The 3.5mm input makes it a great choice for those of you who want to watch Hollywood's finest on your Zune.

I don't think your going to find a sound bar with an optical input for this price (if it did I would be all over it) but the lack of even RCA jacks just seems ridiculous. I am sure my TV has a 3.5mm output somewhere, just never thought to look for it. Still, gets pretty good reviews for those that use it.

be sure to check your TV's audio OUTPUTS! I was shocked when I discovered my Toshiba 46WX800U has only ONE AUDIO OUTPUT - optical/TosLink. That's it; good for a home theater, bad for anything else. Tons of connectors: HDMIs, SD card, USBs, LAN, composite, component, etc. but ONLY ONE AUDIO OUTPUT. whodathunk to ever check that? Even my 5 year old Sony has a headphone jack! Reading on the web, this seems like a trend - must be a conspiracy!

Only has a 3.5mm input? Hmmm, might be worth buying as an external speaker for my mp3 player, really annoy my coworkers. :-)

It's a 50 buck 20 watt external speaker!

"Sound bar" is to speakers as "hydration" is to water.

You get what you pay for.

With a single 3.5mm input, this is really nothing more that a simple upgrade to your TVs built in speakers, IF your TV has a 3.5mm output. Otherwise, as someone noted above, it's really nothing more than an external speaker for an mp3 playe or PC. High marks on amazon for sound quality.

I bought a CHEAP Coby with a wireless sub from Best Buy when they were blowing them out and I'd highly recommend a small sub, but this guy appears to have pretty nice tweeters in it so as long as you aren't expecting a lot better bass to go with it this would make many users happy. Anything just about is better then the speakers most thin flat panels use these days anyways. My old big CRT set had a small sub built in to the cabinet so I really missed the extra bass it had compared to my new thin set so I made sure to get a small sub with mine.
I have a big 7.1 system all hooked up but don't want to waste the electricity and heat the house when I just want to watch some regular TV.

It will also work if your TV has RCA audio out jacks. All you need is an RCA to 3.5" stereo cable, available for less than 5 bucks on that big auction site.

I should have paid more attention to the connections on the back. The Sharp HT-SB20 only has a single 3.5mm jack for audio input. My TV only has a digital optical output for audio. I can get a converter as a workaround but that's another 25.00. Get what you pay for I guess.

Wow this has set the new gold standard of mediocrity. I had an L-R RCA to 3.5 plug handy to covert my Vizio audio out to this thing, so no financial pain to connect.

Honestly, separately it was hard to distinguish between the tinny and thin sound out of my Viz and the slightly less tinny but still very thin sound of the Sharp thingy.

I fiddled with the settings, and driving both the TV and soundbar simultaneously are not bad for standard TV front-forward sound -- News, sitcoms, sports.

Bottom line: with this thing the sound is about as good as the old high-end Sony or Panasonic CRT TVs with 2 or 4 built-in stereo speakers. To be fair, for this price and simple connection philosophy, that's acceptable.

Stay away if you think you'll get anything approaching "rich" or "full."

I bought this and tried to hook it up to my new RCA tv and it doesn't work. I bought a Y audio adapter at Walmart and hooked it up and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions? I don't know what I am doing wrong. Do I need to change the settings on the tv? Please help!
