Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound bar Bought this sound bar few days back on half price. Got mixed reviews so decided to try it out. But I have no regrets, it delivers good sound quality for music and movies. I connect my laptop to my TV and my TV aux out is connected to sound bar. HK should provide more HDMI cables. But it can be bought locally. I have a request to engineering team to enhance the manual and mobile app. For e.g. Manual does not explain the usage of settings on sub woofer. Anyways an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Technology... Compact size, Great Sound..!! I just bought the system last last month and i am confident to write a review. Compact, Easy to setup, Perfect for family/Gathering room. Price reflects the quality here, so it's worth buying. In-fact, all my guests inquired about this product after hearing sound quality of this system. I would definitely recommend this product to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful system I had great results with a lower end soundbar system from Philips, but wanted to upgrade with my new screen and BD player. I have always thought highly of the Harman Kardon brand products, so I placed my order for the Sabre, expecting to be fully satisfied with my choice; however, I was blown away by the rich, full sound of the system! Although the provided instructioins were sparse, and I had to purchase two additional micro HDMI cables, I couldn't be happier with the Sabre, it fully delivered on all my expectations. Thank you Harman Kardon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soundbar system. Period. I purchased this unit a year ago and have been blown away by how amazing it has made my music and movies sound. The action feels like its happening right around me with the thumping wireless subwoofer that you can place anywhere independent of the wireless sound bar. The slim sound bar is designed beautifully and my guests marvel at how thin it is. This is so much better than having a cluster of speakers. Oh and the sound bar when put it virtual mode makes it sound like surround sound audio. Extremely satisfied one year later and hopefully for many more years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome I owned a home theater system that cost 3 times more so as an audiophile I was skeptical. No worries. The SB 35 is far and away the best audio I've experienced in my 62 years. Thank you Harmon Kardon for exceeding my highest expectations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built in quality The overall quality of the product is amazing, they took care from all aspects of the product. The sound quality is very impressive and the set up is quite easy to install. The bad thing is that the documentations is not as good, the system have many features but the manual does not show them.

Hi, does the subwoofer have to stand upright or can it be laid on its side under a piece of furniture?

Asked by: SLJ20016
The Sub is designed as a downfiring sub woofer, with that said, it would produce sound differently when firing sound downwards compared to it firing sound sideways. Downfiring subs sound better when the woofer is pointing downwards rather than sideways. You can still use the sub in that application(pointing sideways) but it would really sound differently from before.

Hi, how far from the soundbar can I place the subwoofer?  My preferred location for the subwoofer is about 20 feet from the soundbar.  Is that going to work?  Thank you very much.

Asked by: SLJ20016
That should work as the threshold for bluetooth connectivity between the soundbar and the sub is 10m(32ft.). However, you should consider removing any other electronic device in between or surrounding the soundbar and the sub as it may cause interference between the system.

Hej!  Har ett knäppande ljud i min SB 35 när jag väljer bland menyer på tex min Apple TV. Vad kan detta bero på?  Sen undrar jag även hur man uppgraderar firmware på SB 35.  Tack på förhand!  Med vänlig hälsning, Jonas

Asked by: Socknocker
Det är inte menyn som hörs. Kan det bero på den optiska kabeln? Står PCM varje gång det knäpper.
