Vizio 28” 2.0 Sound Bar (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Without requiring a complicated network of satellite speakers and cables, this sleek and economically sized Vizio sound bar elevates your home theater’s audio while integrating seamless into your entertainment center.
Clear, Dynamic Listening Experience
Even when cranked up to 95dB, the sound bar clearly articulates everything from faint whispers to massive explosives with minimal harmonic distortion. It delivers plenty of low end as well, adding some thump to party playlists with bass as deep as 70Hz.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth streams music wirelessly from a compatible device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. The wireless connection also frees up your smartphone to multitask, or sit safely in your pocket, unlike the short leash of an audio cable.

Vizio launched in 2002, when rival companies had already been selling TVs for decades. Despite being a relative newcomer to the TV market, Vizio hit the ground running. By 2007, it sold the most LCD TVs in America. Its runaway success is thanks in large part to its bread-and-butter HDTV, the LED-backlit 1080p set that can be found in many living rooms. Yet the company also takes chances on the latest technologies. In 2015, for instance, it launched what is arguably one of the most high-end sets ever produced—the $130,000 Reference Series, a 120” 4K set with support for more than one billion colors and integrated 5.1-channel surround sound. While the hefty price tag will deter most TV shoppers, Vizio will inevitably find a way to pack the cutting-edge technologies into a more consumer-friendly set—the approach to TV-making that brought it success in the first place.
Sleek and compact, sound bars deliver sound quality with a small footprint. This guide will help you determine which model is right for you.
