Engadget Review

Sennheiser’s Ambeo Soundbar is a beast, both in terms of size and sound. It packs in the immersive power of a multi-speaker setup into a single enclosure without sacrificing the dimensionality of 3D audio. Despite offering a ton of connectivity options, and supporting all the necessary audio formats, the audio doesn’t sync exactly sometimes when the TV is the direct video source. Thankfully, you can connect HDMI devices to the soundbar itself.
