Understanding how consumers interact with their sound bars, VIZIO developed an innovative Display Remote, eliminating the need to squint across the room to view current input, adjust bass or enable the built-in DTS audio technologies. VIZIO's Display Remote is included with select sound bars and contains a built-in LCD display, making it easy to control sound bar settings while still relaxing on the couch.
Packed with advanced audio technology, VIZIO's 42" 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar with wireless subwoofer and surrounds provides a best-in-class surround sound solution, able to satisfy even the discerning ears of serious audiophiles.

Size-matched for 46" – 47" HDTVs, VIZIO's newest audio solution sports a stylish design and mounts under screens as a seamless extension of the entertainment experience.
The Best of CES award further reinforces VIZIO's position as America's #1 Sound Bar Company1, with the S4251w-B4 amplifying the TV-watching experience by providing audio enthusiasts with a substantial quality and clarity upgrade when compared to standard, thin-frame HDTV speakers.
