The Vizio XWR100 is a dual-band, high-definition Draft N wireless router engineered to work alongside either the VBR210, VBR220, or VBR231 Blu-ray disc player. It provides both 2.4GHz and 5GHz transmissions and has been designed specially for streaming high-definition media. It uses Vizio QoS (Quality of Sound) technology to produce superior high-definition streaming by intelligently prioritizing Internet traffic, thereby resulting in fewer delays, especially when watching HD movies. In particular, the 5GHz band is geared mainly for time-sensitive traffic, whereas the 2.4GHz band covers everything else. Additional features include a USB interface for accessing a USB hard drive, Wi-Fi Protected Setup, and both PC/Mac compatibility.

QoS stands for "Quality of Service" (not Quality of Sound).

Yes, typically it does. In the case of Vizio, they've attempted to reuse the abbreviation as Quality of Sound. A simple Google search returns many examples of Vizio press releases using QoS in this way.
