Vizio Elevate review: A big, brash 5.1.4 soundbar plus system

 

Rotating front drivers help deliver a more immersive surround sound experience

True Dolby Atmos surround sound ; Solid musicality for streaming tunes ; Competitive price

Proper setup takes some tweaking ; Large subwoofer is hard to hide

The Vizio Elevate is a painless way to bring true 3D Dolby Atmos sound to your living room, at a reasonable price.

Vizio Elevate Sound Bar review

 

With rotating, upward-firing speakers, the Vizio Elevate looks like something from the future but has a bass-heavy sound quality firmly rooted in the present.

Flip-up height channel speakers Comes with satellite speakers Dolby Atmos compatibility

A bit too bass-heavy Little lacking in details Too few features

It doesn’t have crystal clear accuracy or the perfect tonal balance, but the Vizio Elevate is a practical way to bring Dolby Atmos to your living room in an all-in-one package.

Vizio Elevate soundbar review: This Dolby Atmos speaker could start a revolution

 

Motorized, revolving drivers steal the show, but the Elevate's sonic performance is the real star.

Includes rears and wireless sub.

Somewhat short surround cables

Vizio Elevate review: A rotating soundbar is the smartest pivot to Atmos yet

 

Marrying a killer new design to audiophile controls and stellar sound, the Vizio is an excellent compliment to your high-end television.

Simple setup, clear chart showing connections ; Wonderfully unique design ; Deep control over sound output levels ; Exceptionally clear dialogue

Effects dependent on room ; Costly

Review: Vizio Elevate

 

I WATCH SO many movies and shows when testing TVs, soundbars, and various other home theater toys that I begin to get jealous of the perfectly sculpted universes in them. Sci-fi doors slide open with puffy wisps; stereos are perfectly recessed into...

Easy setup. Room-filling Dolby Atmos surround sound. It's easy to place speakers. Backlit remote. Sleek design. The corner speakers turn!

An extension cord may be required if you don't have power where you want your subwoofer. Some cable management needed. It's expensive for a soundbar.

I’ll be the first to admit that you can spend thousands of dollars on speakers, a dedicated receiver, and cables to tie it all together, and it will sound better than the Elevate. But for $1,000? I don't think you can beat the cost and convenience of...

Vizio Elevate Review

 

The Vizio Elevate soundbar is a 5.1.4 setup with a unique design. The sides of the bar automatically rotate when you watch Dolby Atmos or DTS:X content, which ca...

Four EQ presets. Wide, focused soundstage. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Chromecast built-in compatibility. Dialogue enhancement feature.

Some distortion at max volume. No graphic EQ.

The Vizio Elevate soundbar is great for mixed usage. You can use it to watch Dolby Atmos content, and its satellite speakers help create an immersive surrounds experience. Thanks to its dedicated center channel, it can reproduce dialogue in TV shows...

Vizio Elevate review: This Dolby Atmos soundbar's swiveling drivers are no gimmick

 

A soundbar with motorized, swiveling drivers that bounce the audio cues in Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks off your ceiling? Sounds like a gimmick, right? Well, the concept works splendidly in the Vizio Elevate, a 5.1.4-channel soundbar that delivers...

Thrilling 3D sound Rotating height drivers can also bolster the left and right channels Chromecast built in Three HDMI ports, with eARC support on one

Bass is a tad heavy SmartCast app frequently disconnected from the soundbar Clunky, non-backlit remote control No native music service support

My complaints about bass response aside, Vizio’s Elevate is one of the most exciting soundbars I’ve heard in some time, serving up big, room-filling sound that offered subtlety as well as muscle. Also, the Elevate’s swiveling height speakers mean that...

The Best Soundbar

 

The ability to enjoy a theatrical movie experience at home is more desirable than ever. The low-quality speakers built into most TVs can't approach the performance of a theatrical sound system—but a good soundbar can. We think the Vizio Elevate offers...

The Vizio Elevate is the best soundbar for those who want a complete system that includes a subwoofer and rear speakers. The design of this Dolby Atmos–capable soundbar is unlike anything else available right now: In addition to the dedicated Atmos...

The Vizio Elevate's Rotating Speakers Are a Clever Dolby Atmos Solution

 

Dolby Atmos soundbars have a problem: They struggle to simulate height. Regardless of how many drivers a speaker has or how fancy its room-tuning audio is, you can tell the sound isn't coming from above you. That kind of sucks when you have a fancy...

Good bass. Lots of ports! Does a good job of creating 3D sound.

Good bass. Lots of ports! Does a good job of creating 3D sound.

If you do care about Atmos, want to upgrade an older 5.1 system, or want a one-and-done type setup, the Vizio Elevate is a good choice. You don’t have a lot of options for adding multiple speakers over time, but it’s also a decent “starter” home...
