AudioSource 160 watt bar. Great addition to my tv. Did not know how much sound I was missing. I did not want to place speakers around room and deal with wires. Much easier to understand announcers at loud sporting events. Tiny remote-do not lose. Great buy!!! jOe

You should be able to use both. Just put the bolts through the shelf holes.

Is mirage really going to put an OMD-C1 on woot one day? I really want to buy these towers, but I don't want to get them and not have a matching center channel.

I purchased Boston Acoustics TVee 26 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer in February. It was on $99 then. Same exact model.
Price increase aside, I'm very happy w/ it. Works perfect w/ my 32" I have in a sitting room. It's actually way more power then I need for the size of room.
It would probably do fine w/ a bigger TV in a bigger room. No regrets. I'd get again. I would grab another, but I can't get that extra $30 they have it listed for out of my head !

Hello WOOT community. I am Arin with Pinnacle Speakers, TEAM LEADER consumer division. Pinnacle is a family owned and operated USA based company, established in 1976. That's 38 years and nearly 4 decades. We are the oldest independently owned and operated USA-based speaker company with the longest running management team in the industry. We are famous in the Speaker and consumer electronics industry and known specifically for superior performance, innovative engineering and old-fashioned, personal service.

STEREOPHILE MAGAZINE'S PETER MITCHELLE said our product was "SHOCKINGLY GOOD FOR THE MONEY". That was a $700 pair of superb full size bookshelf speakers. Stereo Vision (formerly Stereo Review Magazine) said, "Pinnacle's model sounds almost as good as our reference Speakers costing twenty times as much". They were comparing a tiny shelf speaker @ $149 to their studio reference Speakers of $3,000. We do it time and again!! We make amazing products and have sold millions of speakers. We have products ranging from "BUDGET AUDIOPHILE" to TRUE AUDIOPHILE up to $8,000. We offer these exclusive and honestly ridiculous "no brainer" deals to WOOT as an exclusive buy it now, snooze or lose opportunity.

I will be here monitoring the forum to assist in answering any and all questions regarding our products. I have been with Pinnacle for 10 years and I will proudly tell you,we make terrific products. I am quite knowledgeable about our products and speakers in general, but if something is technically beyond me, I have access to one of our audio engineers for the highly technical questions. There is no such thing as a "DUMB" question. These are complicated decisions. So, if you have a question, please ask. Chances are your question will also help many other Woot forum people.

I am a specialist in Pinnacle, although I cannot speak for other company products, I can try to assist in building a system with our products and some existing items you may already own.

Thanks for your participation in this forum

Does the Pinnacle sound bar have an IR repeater? This might block the remote for my vizio tv.

Yes, but they take a lot of man hours to build. Figure closer to September on those. I do think it is well worth the wait, especially at the WOOT price. We will be pleased to add you to our wait list. Thank you,

Question for the audio experts ... er... semi-pros - Would any of the Bluetooth sound bars be appropriate to use on a shelf in my office (located about 7 feet left from where I sit)? I'm interested in something good for classical music at low volumes during the day, and for the late nights at the office to turn up some classic rock. I was going to buy a Jambox or equivalent Bluetooth speaker, but space is not an issue, so would one of these be better?

That probably depends on how you output the audio on your Xbox. Do you use an HDMI cable or are you still using component cables? This unit doesn't appear to have and HDMI input/passthrough. So you would have to use the digital optical out on the Xbox. I only have an old school 360 (assuming that is what you're talking about) and the only way I can output via digital optical is to use component cables.

I am a big fan of using the sound bar that I have for playing music, but the one I have isn't for sale at the moment. I guess you probably need to define what your expectations are. What is it that you are hoping to get out of it? A lot of these sound bars get rather loud and will shake your room. Especially with a wireless bass module as a lot of them have. Personally, I'm all for having quality sound, and I think these units would provide you an excellent option to listen to music. For me, if an album is mixed properly, you will be able to distinguish different sounds from the left and right channels. The problem with smaller, portable, bluetooth speakers, is that the really lack in that department. I also have a small Sony Bluetooth Speaker, and while I love that speaker also, I much prefer the Vizio sound bar I have set up if I'm listening to music at home. The Sony is more for portable listening and to better the sound on my tablet. I hope that helps.

It's actually free shipping regardless, since the price is over $35. So much fail for the WOOT pricing department, unless their intent was to drive us to the mothership.

Given we're dealing with a sale and not a woot! the ones that need to see this aren't likely to, but steer clear of the Samsung Blu-Ray Player with Apps. That thing is awful for Netflix, horrible lag, I can only imagine how bad it is with recent updates to Netflix's UI which might or might not be pushed to this unit. I bought and returned one many many months ago, its a shame Woot continues to sell these off without some sort of disclaimer. I'm not the only one to have had this experience as well, 3-4 times since I bought mine I've seen it on sale and others sharing similar experiences.

Okay, so this will seem a very odd question, but since I don't see any Aux In jack on this thing (the Sony 5.1 Receiver), I'm guessing I can't use this as an amp for my guitar, right?

I bought the panasonic home theater with tall boy speakrs and I HATE IT! The system is "green" and turns off after 30 minutes of nonuse. You can't turn off this "feature" i even checked with panasonic.... Normally this wouldn't be a problem since you can just turn it back on. But the equipment does not turn back on to the same input as before it powered off. It returns to the home screen with zero audio output. So if you want to use it like I did, just for the audio output from directv, you'll have to use two remotes and manually switch this thing back to your input every single time you want to watch TV, which takes an annoying 30-40 seconds or more to boot.

Would anyone be willing to help me with a little consult?

I was looking at the Samsung set ups they have listed, particularly the Samsung HT-EM35B 5.1-Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System, because I have no use for 3D.

I'm having trouble evaluating how much power I need. I have a relatively small but very open living room with high ceilings.

I had purchased a setup by Craig from woot (http://electronics.woot.com/offers/5-1-channel-home-theater-w-dvd-player) and I got what I paid for, I have no complaints. But it ended up not being powerful enough. Eventually I blew out the speakers.

Is there a way for me to tell how much more powerful this unit is, and how to I judge if it would fit my needs?

Any help you can offer would be great.

Thanks
Chris

I'm debating getting one of the two Sammy soundbars. From what I've found, there isn't much of a difference bewteen the HW-F450 and the HW-FM45C, well aside from the $30.

Is there something obvious I'm missing here or are they just about the same?

Long story short, don't buy anything considered to be home theater in a box. Anything all in one like that is not going to be powerful enough if you're blowing speakers. If you stick around, Arin, a representative from Pinnacle, will gladly help you piece something together. Though that will require some substantial money. If you have any questions on where to start in building your own home theater, please feel free to private message me and I'll give you some good starting points. That way we aren't monopolizing this discussion here.

According to Amazon the differences between the HW-FM45C and HW-F450 is this:

"This HW-FM45C soundbar is a derivative soundbar model.
This product lacks a key feature that is found on the similar and more widely available HW-F450 model, which is Crystal Sound Pro."

The Crystal Sound Pro is some type of discrete Amp inside the soundbar from my understanding.

I have 4 of yhe OMD-5s and thought they sounded great. I bought 2 OMD-15's and they are fantastic. I also would like an OMD-C1. My pioneer receiver does an excellent job of blending my sunfire center channel with the Mirage speakers. Buy the OMD-15's ( a great purchase) and buy a used center or omd-5 for center.

The last time that Mirage had it's own sale there was a rep from Mirage that stated that they were working with woot to make more towers, and the actual centers. I have the nano sats for my living room and I have been very impressed. I really want the Mirage set up for the media room.

Hi,

Does anyone have the Pinnacle 2500s? If $4000 is the real MSRP, that seems pretty good. Wondering how they sound - never heard Pinnacles.

Thanks!!

So what all do I need in the Pinnicale line to go with my samsung 65 inch 3d TV...the 2014 models

Not sure which sound bar..speakers...subwoofer or other combination I need.

Thank you in advance Arin for letting me know.

For a terrific system without a receiver I suggest POWERONEHT 200 Soundbar with built in Powered Subwoofer. The cabinet design will sit beneath the TV and the TV can go on top. 1 simple cable for hookup and you are ready. This will be an excellent solution.

Thanks,

In nearly 40 years this is our Flagship product in our Flagship Black Diamond Series. Indeed they are exceptional and this price is a steal. Here is a recent review on Black Diamond series system from Sound and Vision Magazine.

http://pinnaclespeakers.com/revu_bdsysii.html The bass response is quite remarkable in BD 2500 as is the detail in the midrange. Truly our best! Gorgeous piano lacquer finish as well.

Pinnacle Speakers Power One HT 200 Premier 2.1 System, All-in-One Sleek Enclosure with Built-in TV Platform Fitting Up to a 65" TV. Is this it. Doesn't seem large enough to hold the 65" samsung base; if it is i'm in for one. Thanks!

Also does it attach to the TV so if your watching either a TV or DVD that it mimics surround?
Thanks,

Hi, Yes that is the product I recommend. The cabinet will accept the weight of your TV no problem and it fits under many 80" sets. The width of the surface is 38" and depth is 15" deep. So as long as the TV platform is less than 38X 15 (figure 36 X 13) you are just fine.
