    Great sound with deep bass

    I purchased this after going round and round on a new receiver and speaker set to replace my old Onkyo 7.1 set. I wanted that theater sound, but I didn’t like the idea of spending $800+. I bought the soundbar with the sub and loved it so much I added an open box set of the wireless surround speakers a week later. Money well spent. The only downside is that my 2017 Samsung tv won’t send the Dolby sound set. PCM sounds great, but I would prefer more options. Would love for these to be upgradeable to Atmos.

    decen Soundbar for small room but missing features

    I bought this soundbar and returned it for the Q70R.

    It does a decent job, however I would highly recommend the Q70R over this soundbar.

    Missing features:
    No Dolby Digital + (This should be included in any soundbar released in 2019)
    No dedicated center channel (I found that speech was a bit low compared to the Q70R which has a dedicated center channel)
    No Dolby Atmos support
    Subwoofer was not strong enough for my room (Q70R SW is much larger)

    What I liked:
    Sound quality was otherwise great
    Setup was seamless
    passes ARC seamlessly
    works flawlessly with my Q90R television

    If you have a smaller apt or are budget constrained, this is a decent soundbar. However for slightly more you can get the Q70R and significantly improve your sound quality.

    Great value

    Bought this today to replace a Samsung 2.0 sound bar and sub. For the price this is incredible. Great sound! I immediately went to youtube and played some songs. turned it up all the way. no distortion at all. The bass is awesome. The highs are crisp. With regular TV watching it is noticeably better than what I had. highly recommended.

    Must have absurd nickname


    I bought this two weeks ago; the original set-up was relatively easy, however yesterday, the HDMI-ARC connection wouldn’t respond (it’s connected to a Samsung 55″ TV which is less than 2 years old, so compatibility should not be an issue).

    After two hours of troubleshooting, I finally resorted to using the bluetooth connection, but the sound quality isn’t the same and my SWA-8500S satellite speakers no longer work. I am beyond frustrated and angry that a product which should have seamlessly integrated with my existing television is causing me this much trouble.

    This has left a sour taste in my mouth and altered my opinion of Samsung products.

    Great product

    Great sound, love full rich sound of the speakers, the adaptive sound brings the voices up above the back ground sounds when needed, Bery rich deep bass and I love the bluetooth feature which virtually removes any wires needed. This allows for the placement of the bass speaker any any place.

    Sounds good except……

    I purchased this sound bar about a month ago to go along with my new TV.
    First off the set up was very easy using the ARC connector paired with the Samsung TV. The soundbar itself also looks great even sitting on my TV stand. Bass is awesome with the included subwoofer which also set up easily.
    My issue is that even in Dynamic Mode voices often seem muted or very low. At first I thought this was due to the source material. But I this seems to happen with everything I have tried, including sporting events, live TV you name it. the voices seem a little low for my taste. We need to put the volume up way high in order to hear the voices sometime. To be fair i am not sure if this is a settings issue that I may not be looking at.
    I was hoping to get some advice from Samsung on how i can remedy this and can only give it 3 stars for now.

    Love it – except for upgrading firmware & support

    Pro: 1. great sound for money. better than the more expensive HW-MS750

    Con: 1. incompatible with smart thigs android app (you can use the “audio remote” app but its kludgy)
    2. the display is minimalist is an understatement. other than telling you the input, its unusable.
    3. upgrading the firmware is a soul crushing, mind numbing experience and do not call their tech support – basically a Mexican call center where I was treated to the guy with zero subject matter expertise reading the manual and thinking somehow I didn’t do that. They don’t even bother to go online and see the product page that I see to confirm what it is I am downloading. absolutely horrific experience that left me nowhere. Samsung gives you no ability to document the issue in an email and send it to someone with real subject matter expertise. I ended up hanging up and got nothing done after 45 minutes. Most frustrating is that when I insert the USB with what is the correct file on it, it says “No Data” – which has to be the most non-sequitur response they could possibly give – it’s almost like the Korean product designers did this to have a good laugh thinking about a poor schlub like me going through this process.

    Anyway, all in all, it’s a good product for what it is – especially when paired with a Samsung tv although not sure if that is or isnt a real plus or minus. But the cons are not helping Samsung retain me as a future customer – unless of course this is the new bar for stellar customer support.

    I would recommend this product to a friend but would also caution them about my experienvce.

    Great Bass Sound…. Crisp Sound

    Purchased this item Late June and finally had the time to assemble and install it in my sitting room early August.
    I’m wowed with its bass and the finesse in the sound production.
    Samsung and Harman Kardon really hit a good quality in the production of this unit.

    Very delayed voice no way to fix

    Great sound but when watching movies or tv the voice from the sound bar is extremely delayed. I have the setting on zero delay but it’s at least half a second delay. I’ve had this issue in the past and it was livable this is awful. For $1000 I’m embarrassed for Saumsung. This Soundbar is on a 3k Samsung TV.

    Overall Not great

    So I switched from a Samsung Blue Ray Surround system to this product because I switched to 4k and the player didn’t support it. While the sound quality is ok, you have to crank it up to near 80 for it to fill the living room with clear sound, whereas, my surround sound over 30 and you were waking the dead and my neighbors. I think this is good for a small room and that is about it, and by small I mean like 10×12 at most as my living room isn’t that big.
