Sounds really good for a room less then 250sqft. Nice size soundbar for a TVs of upto55 inches. Pairs really well with your TV's HDMI CEC. Make sure you HDMI function is turned on. no need for additional remote control.

I couldn't see myself every buying this sonos stuff.

When I wanted to hook up multi-room sound to the zone 2 of my Denon receiver, I ran copper wires down to the basement, where I installed a distribution amp, and then ran wires to each room where I wanted the multi-room setup to work.

I use a Sonos Connect attached to a distribution amp. Works great as a streamer and the app is extremely easy and wife-friendly to use. If you want to play different sources in each zone, you can attach multiple Connects. Their stuff is pricey but it works extremely well.
