  • Samsung HW-A550 is a great soundbar
    Reviewed by EricPNW - June 29, 2021

    Disclaimer “I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion” Wow, Everything arrived in perfect condition, all included items were packaged very well and it was easy to figure out what everything was for. Setup was easy, plug it in, plug in the woofer and it paired together instantly without any work needed from me. The included manual was a little lacking, no mention of the different sound modes, etc. I switched it over to DTS and immediately noticed how much better the sound was. The range seems so much better than the previous bars used at this price point. The remote is very easy to use, and isn't overwhelming with buttons, etc. And the volume range is very large, I listen to many different sources ranging from a media server, to streaming online to live and recorded media. And it's nice to b able to adjust it very easily. Having separate volume controls for the subwoofer directly on the remote is a nice touch as well. It fits in the curve of your hand very well and it comfortable to use. Adding the controls to my universal remote system was easy as Samsung uses the same basic commands for most of its remotes. It doesn't matter if you are listening to music, watching the news, or watching a movie, this soundbar really fills the bill. It adds a great amount of depth and sound without a need for a bigger audio system or a bunch of wires. Also, the soundbar sits very low, so it doesn't block the bottom of most screens. It's all black and the display, while bright and easy to read automatically dims and turns off so there is no visual distraction unlink other bars I have used in the past. The subwoofer is a nice size, easy to place and it looks very nice in the room. It is also all black with no color accents so it just blends in with the rest of the room. The amount of bass it puts out, even at lower settings is pretty surprising. But being able to easily adjust the amount of bass with the remote is a vast improvement to having to physically adjust it on the speaker itself. It also includes a nice pair of mounting brackets to mount this to the wall, but I didn't need them for my application, but they are very solid and would easily support the speaker. This replaced an existing soundbar, and the difference was night and day. Between the appearance, features, and sound fidelity this soundbar offers, I couldn't be happier.

  • Ok soundbar
    Reviewed by TOMMYJ - December 6, 2021

    I bought this based on reviews and budget. Paid $179.00, $100 off. Good soundbar but weak subwoofer so I tried for a few days but not happy I was gonna replace with either sony or vizio because bass was way better in store but wanted to stay with samsung, do to having a samsung DVD surround sound that lasted for years but bass was way better, so I decided to go back and get the rear speakers which it much needed. So the HW-A550 soundbar with SWA-9100S rear speakers is a good match with ok bass. Definitely needs a more powerful subwoofer, my old samsung DVD surround shook the walls and I will miss that. Im going to try this for a couple of weeks to see if I get use to it.

  • Amazing sound
    Reviewed by Dragracinprincess - July 12, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Soundbar and subwoofer is completely awesome. I upgraded my old Samsung soundbar and the difference between the two is astonishing. The connectivity can be connected to the TV many ways it can be connected via Bluetooth if you have that option it can be connected infared connection, aux cables or even HDMI. The sound that comes out of this is definitely scared or quality. Connect your phone via Bluetooth. It says that you can connect your Echo dot but my Alexa Echo Dot cannot find my soundbar so I'm unsure how to do that I'll have to read into that a little bit more. I highly recommend this product. My neighbor here's my base and he says he needs to get a soundbar just like this.

  • It’s a must have for home theater
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - July 6, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Totally changed my home movie experience! The Samsung HW-A550 sound bar and bass brings true sound into our family room. The sound quality and clarity are great no matter what mode you use. Plus it looks very sleek and modern and not bulky. It’s so easy to set up, I just plugged it in and it automatically connects through Bluetooth. Infact that you don't have to fumble with anything or have extra cords hanging is the best.
