Samsung Wireless Audio - Sounder.

I purchased this sounbar today, brought it home and installed it. First of all I used my iPhone 7plus to hook up to it via Bluetooth, it is awesome. Then I hooked it up to my 50' Samsung TV Best audio device I have ever purchased !!!! Very pleased !!!!!

lasts a little over a year

I'm having to pull everything out today and take this system back to the store, hoping that my extended warranty will get me something after it started rattling. Can't figure out if it's the bar or the subwoofer. I had no complaints until now ... it was decent enough sound, could switch from TV to BT and listen to streaming music, even though we could never get the Rogers or universal remote to recognize it and always had to use the rinky-dink Samsung remote just for the volume. There is no reason this speaker should be rattling. Living in a small house, with several BT speakers in different rooms, I never crank my speakers. Very disappointed.

good sound for a good price

I purchased this to supplement the speakers on my new 65 4K tv which was either downward or rear firing. The tv had excellent features other that sound - which pales in comparison to the older 40 it replaces I went to a local best buy and tried another model (80W with wired sub, BT) and it was fairly adequate at low to mid volumes. I never got to test this unit at the store but figured 120W would be a little bit louder or more powerful. Ordered this online on a Fri and it arrived Mon. The main advantage for me about this unit is that it has a front white LED display that shows D.IN (digital optical input), aux, tv connect and bluetooth. I opted to connect my tv using the included optical cable which allows the soundbar to turn on and off together with the tv. The only disadvantage of an optical connection is that the output is fixed and volume adjustments can only be done through the the soundbar (changing vol settings on tv has no effect - obviously). The most convenient feature of this soundbar is the BT connection. Once paired with a phone or tablet, you can play music directly through this device. This makes listening a whole lot more pleasurable. It is wider than most soundbars at about 37 inches but very low profile and should generally fit between the tv stand/feet if you prefer. A wall mount is also provided as an option. All sound settings and functions including switching inputs are controllable via included remote. This is meant for everyday tv playback and sounds infinitely better than included tv speakers. However, if you need more powerful sound, then a separate receiver amplifier and speakers are required

It is a OK soundbar.

It's better than nothing. It works with the smartphone to stream music. The subwoofer is not strong. The rest is ok. It's a good option if you get for 130 dollars or less.

Great purchase

I bought this on sale during Boxing Day. I have a Sony tv and it works perfectly with it. The only issue I have is that the sound bars remote does not appear to be compatible with the TVs remote or that of the satellite system I have. (Mind you I have not spend a lot of time trying to make them comparable, I will in the near future). I have had it close to 2 weeks and it's a huge improvement over the speakers that are in the TV. Everything connected quickly and I had it up and running in under 15 minutes. Just as other reviewers state, turn the sound down or off on your tv. We have watched a few movies now and it makes a huge difference. Glad I purchased it. Don't forget to go into the setting on the remote and tweet the base and treble and sub to what suits you. I am very happy with this purchase. For what I paid for it, it's definately a huge upgrade compared to the tv speakers. It's not surround sound so don't expect that but then again you are paying far less.

Works well and sounds good

I bought the system for my daughter for her birthday. Pretty easy to hook up and am told sounds very good. Installed on a 46" Samsung LED TV.

Great for smaller rooms

We have a smaller living room/dining room in a relatively new condo and recently purchased a Samsung 40" UHD TV. This sound bar is ideal for a room this size with appropriate controls for managing the sound (frequency range, volume, surround effect, etc.) Is identified in our Harmony remote and, in addition to complementing our TV also works well as simply an audio amplifier/speaker to connect to Spotify - and other audio apps - on my Android phone via Bluetooth.

Extremely disappointed

I had done a lot of research prior to buying this bar. For such a low price, I wasn't expecting the sound to be fantastic but it definitely was much lower than my expectations. I have my bar on a shelf about four feet from the floor and the subwoofer about 6 feet to the left of it on the ground. The subwoofer, even at maxed bass (which is +6, not very much) is not very strong. It's only 60 watts but I'm still disappointed. I expected more. The sound from the bar noticeably comes from one place if you aren't sitting/standing directly in front of it. Maybe that's the thing with sound bars but I dislike that. Some bars make it sound like surround sound but this bar doesn't at all. On the good side, it was extremely easy to set up and the Bluetooth feature is great. I have the system in my bedroom and could still play music from my living room a floor down and at the opposite side of the house. However, because of my disappointment from the sound quality and the bass, I will be returning this. I'm going to try the Samsung HW-K430 220 watt instead (which is one level up from this sound bar). It has the same subwoofer but I am hoping the sound quality will be much better. if not, I guess I'll be switching from Samsung. Very disappointed :(

Average

This soundbar is okay for small spaces, small living rooms. It has average sound, which is perfect instead of built-in TV speakers which sound horrible. It's nothing great, but for the price it's sufficient. I was happy that it came with a subwoofer, but when I opened the box I noticed the subwoofer is not powered, it's just a speaker in a box, connected to the soundbar with speaker wires. Again, this is pretty average, and the size of the sub is perfect for smaller spaces. Don't expect amplified subwoofer or extraordinary sound from this small unit at this low price, but it is a definite improvement over TV speakers. I'm keeping mine, adequate for my small space.

Cheap

The old saying you get what you paid for. Very limited connectivity. Has optical, but no Hdmi to hook up to a 4yr old Samsung. So will be returning and getting the LG LAS2.

Meh - definitely not a sound upgrade but does the job

So my biggest annoyance with this is that it cannot be controlled by any other remote other than the one that comes with it. I just want to use one remote to control my TV, set-top box and sound-bar. Won't even work with Harmony remotes that normally can control multiple devices. Other than that, sound is ok - does not have allot of depth, in this case, the small size speakers really do produce small size sound. If you get it on sale and need something basic, go for it.

Good, simple soundbar

I bought this because the speakers on my TV were lousy and just wanted something with clear sound. This soundbar is a marked improvement although a far cry from home theater, which is fine if that's what you're looking for. I really can't tell if the included subwoofer adds anything but I haven't really cranked the system up either. I'm very happy with it and haven't complained about the sound once while watching shows. My only complaint with it is I bought a Samsung to pair with my Samsung smart TV and there is no way to integrate the soundbars remote. You would think it would use the same signal as the TV volume, but no. So if you get this you'll have one more remote to keep by your side.

Samsung soundbar

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, it is simple to set up with the optical cable, if you can keep the optical cable in its slot, keeps coming out when any movement. I'm no dummy when it comes figuring and hooking things up. So that is the one thing I found somewhat defective on the soundbar. Otherwise good product so far.

Good little unit

I bought this to replace an older Samsung sound bar that I've had for several years and am very pleased with the sound and having the sub us a definite bonus. I use it in my livingroom and its great and I got in onsale to make it an even better buy

Great sound for the price.

We have a Samsung TV on the main floor of the house which is open concept, the sound always seemed to be lacking. We were looking for something that wasn't too costly but gave great sound as we have a rec room with surround sound. We bought this and installed it and it sounds great. Fills the room nicely with sound and it sounds great. It doesn't match a full surround system, but thats not what it was designed for. One thing that is a pain is that the Samsung TV remote doesn't work the sound bar. One nice feature it has it auto shut off. Great sound for the price.

Doesn't work with Samsung TV remote

I bought it just to avoid the hassle of using two remotes for my Samsung TV and my old sound system. And guess what: DOES NOT WORK WITH SAMSUNG TV remote control!!!! Not accepting VOL+/VOL- from the tv remote, only from their tiny remote control - I was expecting more from a Samsung soundbar. Plus the description is misleading as the subwoofer is WIRED, not bluetooth connected... The sound is tiny and empty, like a 10W max audio system, a little louder than the tv's internal speakers. Sorry Samsung, but you are going in the wrong direction. BestBuy service was 100% positive with fast delivery

Best Value for it's Price, You will not regret it.

Just picked up the Subwoofer and Soundbar as both come in one unit, and it was on sale, and so far it has exceeded my expectations. With the Bluetooth function you can play sound from your phone or TV or any bluetooth device, and it comes with the Optical cable for those whos TVs dont have samsung connect(like mine). The subwoofer performs beyond expectations and the soundbar's surround sound is truly worth it's name. If you are looking to get a soundbar below a two hundred bucks that will drastically add sound to your room, this is your best option and you will not regret it. Obviously it won't transform your room into an IMAX theatre, but it makes a HUGE difference from the TV's built in speakers.

Perfect for me

The 120 watt sound bar is more then loud enough for me (and the average person.) sound quality is very good. I love the Bluetooth as I used to have to unplug the aux from my Xbox everytime I wanted to listen to my iPod (on my old sound system.) in terms of volume, 25 out of 50 makes my room rattle a little, more then powerful enough. Different sound settings (like music or night mode) adjust subwoofer and bass accordingly. I got it on sale and its pretty perfect. No complaints here (if youre worried 120 watts isn't enough [as i was] i can say it is without question for a normal room and/or average living room.)

GREAT SOUND

Purchased this soundbar without any problems. Sound is great, and I like the Bluetooth capability. I love to have rear speakers sound effects when Gaming, or watching movies. With the added sub woofer, it completes my home theater system. Even built my own rear speaker mount to put the soundbar and sub, so I can fully immerse myself ,with rear surround sound. I have a 7.1 surround sound system. But adding the rear speakers, right behind my gaming chair, makes the sound effects more entertaining. There are many high end soundbars out there, but this one does the job. Great price.

Great Value

Purchased on sale, this sound bar system is a great value. Sound quality and volume is superb in my urban home. Plenty of bass, we had to turn the sub down a notch or two. Bluetooth connectivity is easy and stable with apple products. Best feature: a display indicating the input source and volume level. Not many soundbars in this price range have that feature and it's one I really appreciate.

Good sound for a decent price!

Got this on Boxing Day. I added this to a new RCA 48" as the sound had no depth. This set up very easy and looks pretty nice. As soon as I fired this up I was really impressed. The sound difference was incredable especially with the sub woofer.My son linked his phone to it in about 1 minute via Bluetooth. Next thing we know the house was rocking. As this is only 120 watts it has its limits. For a small to medium room it is a nice addition without spending big bucks. I would suggest this entry level unit hands down to anyone... P.S. I bought this on the fly. Checked reviews on this item instore on my phone. Thanks to everyone for your reviews. Everyone rated this well so i went for it. I hope my review is heplfull to you!

Great Soundbar for the price

I didn't need anything too fancy, just needed better quality and quantity of sound than what my TV was providing. I am very happy with this set as it is exactly what I needed. If you are looking for a high performance theatre room style sound bar, this wouldn't cut it.

Awesome way to up your sound game easily. I bought the TOSHIBA 43" door crasher TV and despite it being an awesome value, the sound was a little flat. I bought this soundbar to help out with the lacking sound. I can't complain. For this price ... It is an awesome product and would recommend. For the size of my living room, the 120 watts is more than enough to take movies to another level!

Happy with it

Sound is good. Some sound settings are better than others but music sounds especially great on it. Took me a while to figure out that you need to turn off your TV speakers as well or else you get an echo effect. Issues: Cannot use my Samsung remote to control it even with a Samsung TV. Keep that in mind. I think it only works if you have a NEW samsung TV with the soundconnect feature. That being said, the remote provided works well, I just need to get used to have 2 remotes. When streaming with chromecast to my TV, the sound is delayed on the soundbar. I get the feeling this isn't specific to the soundbar, but any speakers used with a chromecast. I just turn it off and use my TV speakers anyways. It doesn't make any difference when playing music, but makes watching someone speak unbearable.

Excellent quality for the price

This sound bar was on sale at the time we bought our new TV. It works very well and the sound quality of this bar with the sub-woofer is excellent. It is advertised as "Wireless" but that is only true if you are connecting it to a wireless enabled Samsung device - the bar will also accept Bluetooth pairing so you can play your phone through it - great sound!
