The soundbar features integrated keyhole wall mounts, eliminating the need for separate mounting brackets, and the built-in rubber feet allow it to be placed safely on any surface. Adding even more flexibility, a DSP control switch maximizes the performance of the soundbar based on placement (on-wall or tabletop).
