Premium sound meets elegant design

The AudioXperts 4TV 2112

The AudioXperts 4TV 2112 fits in with almost any home decor (TV not included)

The AudioXperts 4TV Model 2112 delivers high-performance sound in a clean, one-piece system that sits directly under your TV. This beautiful audio console keeps a low profile, with an elegant smoked glass and aluminum design that measures barely over two inches tall. From its back-illuminated, touch-sensitive control interface, to its 10 custom-designed drivers, the 2112 oozes quality.

Where'd that sound come from?

While the look of the 2112's console grabs your attention at first, it's the sound that will stay with you from the moment you turn it on. The 10-driver combination has been exquisitely tweaked to generate maximum, full-range impact from your DVDs, Blu-rays, broadcast TV and streaming sources. Virtual surround processing invites you into the picture you're experiencing on the screen, and three listening modes (music, movie, and enhanced dialogue) provide a sound profile appropriate to the entertainment you've chosen. Enhanced dialogue mode, in particular, is handy if your ears are more, how shall I put this, experienced.

One cable gets you started

It's easy to set up: often, only one cable is needed to hook up your television and start down the path of unleashed premium audio for all your TV's programming sources. The console itself has an included, optional-use swivel base that allows you to adjust your TV's viewing angle, and the unit will learn your existing TV's remote commands for volume, on/off and muting in a matter of minutes. You won't have to deal with another easy-to-lose item on your coffee table.

Play music from your Bluetooth® devices and more

The console has a dedicated USB input for Apple® iOS® devices, plus built-in Bluetooth® with advanced aptX® audio coding for wirelessly streaming music from a compatible computer, smartphone, or tablet. Digital and analog inputs enable you to set this system up in mere minutes with practically any TV.

Note: The 4TV console includes a power-saving auto standby mode that engages if the unit detects no audio signal for 10 minutes. To wake the unit, either (1) press the designated power button on a remote that has been "learned" by the 4TV, or (2) wave your hand in front of the sensor window (near the middle of the console), then press the power button on top of the console.

Sound bar speakers: room-filling sound with less clutter

Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First, the positives. It's a very nice looking unit, easy to set up, and the swivel platform is great (I gave it an extra star for this feature). The sound is not bad (better than my 55" Samsung TV's speakers), but not as good as I expected. It's not even close to surround sound, but then I didn't expect it to be. The real negatives, at least to me, are that the volume control is not very linear. The sound can be too loud on about 5, but if you turn it down to 4, it becomes too low to hear. Also, it seems to have a mind of it's own as to which mode it's in; dialogue or not, etc. When you realize it doesn't sound quite right, you have to get up and go to the unit and look at the display, and manually change it if needed. If I had bought this from a local store, I would have already returned it. Since I will have to pay the freight from Dallas to Crutchfield in VA, which will be substantial since the packaged unit weighed 73 lbs., I am still undecided. Bottom line, it's not worth even the highly discounted price now available, in my opinion.

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

An elegant all-in-one solution for TV sound

Written by Zak Billmeier, Staff Writer - Creative, on 6/19/2013 2:58:00 PM

The AudioXperts 4TV is a soundbar that also acts as a stand for your TV. It's so unobtrusive, I was asked by a guest one day what TV I had that was pumping out such rich sound. Ha! It's only a few inches thick with the swiveling stand in place (highly recommended, because it swivels the soundstage with your TV), but man, does this thing crank. The bass is incredible, and I could hear dialogue a lot more clearly. The surround sound modes were convincing, but I ended up liking it best in stereo mode.

It's got a little dock on the back for an Apple AirPort Express, which was pretty cool because I had an old one sitting in a drawer that I popped in there to create a wireless connection. Music sounds great through this soundbar, too.

Another nice thing was that it quickly learned my remote and I was able to control everything just using my Blu-ray remote. Normally I have at least two remotes going. Overall, I must say the sound is impressive, and if you aren't going the wall mounting route, you can't go wrong with this one.
