Good review, but a couple of questions hopefully someone can help me with.





1. Will the system auto standby or similar, ie can i leave it on all the time and it will only wake up when it detects audio from the TV.





2. How is this a 3.1 system when it only has a stereo input. I accept that it can filter out the sub frequencies but without more inputs / decoding it can only really be described as 2.1.

@GearGeek - I would imagine that the TrueSurround SRS tech includes some processing for a centre channel, as described in the review. There must be three physical speaker channels? Unsure on the .1, but either they can claim this as there are some sort of drivers outputting bass, or it's pointing towards the sub pre-out.

@GearGeek As an owner of the original soundbar, which does have auto standby, I would assume the new one does.
