    Like it

    Set up relatively simple , pairs with t.v. No optical cable supplied but sounds better using one along with the hdmi cable which is supplied and also for full functionality. Good sound , play with the settings makes the listening experience much more enjoyable. Right now they’re $289 on Massdrop if they have any left.

    Not true surround sound

    I bought this for a gift for my husband. The sound bar works, back speakers are not so great and we cannot get subwoofer to work
    We have been into the store where we purchased it, and since we didnt buy the extended warranty they said they couldn’t help us.

    Weak Center Channel, Poor Dialogue Quality

    Dialogue from tv shows/movies, which generally comes from the center channel, was very poor quality. Sound from center channel is muffled in comparison to everything else.

    To hear dialogue, you have to turn soundbar up which makes everything else way too loud. I had to keep bass turned all the way down basically or I’d be waking up my neighbors just so I could hear what was being said in my movie/tv shows.

    Even with bass turned down, any audio coming from the left or right channels would be extremely loud too if volume was turned up so that dialogue was audible. If you want to hear dialogue, your eardrums will suffer the consequences.

    I contacted Samsung prior to returning the soundbar and received no real answer as to why the center channel performed so poorly nor was I provided with a potential solution, whether that be replacement, repair, or otherwise.

    I returned soundbar, that process was easy and alleviated some frustration I had.

    I unfortunetly still don’t have a good alternative audio solution at the moment but I’m happy to not be stuck with this 500$ soundbar that perform as expected.
