I decided to take the plunge from a full home cinema surround sound to the simplicity of a sound bar. Surround sound systems are by far the superior choice for movie viewing yet they are much more expensive and take up more space than a single sound bar.
The bar looks smart, it is slim line and has a very nice, modern finish. For its size, I was very surprised that it gives out great sound and is much more powerful than I imagined. You can edit the treble and the bass settings which I personally feel really make a difference depending on what you are using the sound bar for. The separate subwoofer offers decent bass for its size and it the volume can be adjusted via the remote. The bar sits nicely in front of my 52” TV and doesn’t block the TVs remote sensor.
I attached the sound bar to my devices via an optical cable and it was incredibly simple to set up, it took the best part of 5 minutes and the remote is basic and simple to operate in order to tweak my settings.
The only negative I can think of is that I had some trouble with sync-ing the sound to the picture, if I plug the sound bar into the Sky HD box and then into the PS4 I need to adjust the settings each time in order to make the sound fit with the picture.
Overall, for the price you really cannot go wrong with this product, it suits small-medium sized rooms perfectly and offers a much neater finish than a surround sound system.
I love this sound bar it improves the quality of sound by miles and the subwoofer is great for certain occasions too. My partner and I wanted to hang it on the wall and have it floating below our television and it was so easy to put up. It even came with a template to make it easier to mark where to put the screws etc. Once up all it needed then was its power cable as it connects to the TV using Bluetooth. Now when the TV is turned on the sound bar automatically come on with it and starts doing its thing without any need for fiddling. As well as this it connects to any other device with Bluetooth for example my phone when I start playing music I only have to click on the Samsung soundbar device found on my phone and I change the setting on the bar to Bluetooth and straight away I can play music. However it does not need bluetooth to work there are connections that can plug it into the TV and other devices. It comes with its own remote that you can use to change the volume or the settings. These settings can be changed to suit movies, gaming and sports etc to enhance the experience. The bar and woofer it self looks sleek and modern and goes with the TV well, However the woofer is a little big. As well as that the soundbar does not come with HDMI cables for those who require them, they have to be bought separately.
I bought this as an addition for our Samsung 32" LED TV. This soundbar has given the TV the much needed 'oomph' it required and is perfect for our medium-sized living room.
Firstly, the bar itself is slightly longer than a 32" TV, so bear that in mind when thinking about buying it, and think about where it'll sit. The subwoofer is slightly larger than I expected it to be, but happily fits in on a shelf below the TV. In the box you also get a remote control; batteries; instruction manual and 3.5inch jack connector. For some reason, our TV had a hard time connecting up with the soundbar using the supplied connector, so we opted to spend another £5 on an optical cable which works perfectly instead.
There is a very long cable between the soundbar and the subwoofer, so you'll be able to place it where you want to in the room.
The sound is very impressive. There is an option of not connecting the subwoofer if you don't want too much bass, however, the balance and options available in the settings makes it very easy to adjust tone, volume and balance. Options for the settings include, News, Movie, Game, Sport and Drama; and there is the additional feature of smart volume, allowing the speakers to adjust automatically when the sound volume varies quickly. It also benefits from having usb port on the back, allowing you to connect your MP3 player.
Bear in mind that the soundbar has its own remote and once turned on the volume can only be controlled using this and not the TV remote. We've had to get used to having the two remotes together.
I would thoroughly recommend this product if you're after enhanced sound from your TV, whether it's for music, games, movies, or just general viewing.
