Product sounds good, but design for wall mount is ridiculous...

Get Reel, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: So I really like Samsung products and have many of them. Bought this and a 50" Samsung TV for a bedroom setup. I want to hide all speaker cables, power cords, etc. So the problem is the power cord plug that goes to one of the speakers is INSIDE the bracket mounting which forces you to run the power cable visibly to one side before you can drive it into a wall. What idiot engineer came up with this?

Nice Look, Not as Wireless, Sound Just OK

  • Summary: I had recently purchased a new Samsung TV and wanted to add a good solid sound system to it. I wanted to avoid wires all over the place but wanted to still get at least decent enough surround sound. When I saw that this included "wireless" connectivity between the speakers, I figured this was perfect. It was just "ok". First, the instructions that come with it are not that terribly helpful.

Sound bar

  • Summary: I had to buy a new cable, as the RCA cable that came with it did not work. The sound seems to fade out in certain parts of movies. Especially when there is a lot going on in the scene of an action movie. It does great with music!

A couple of issues

Jack E. Fink, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound is good. I thought that the sub-woofer was wireless, but it needs to be wired and the sound bar is wireless, except for the power cord. I bought this to work with my Samsung LED TV and Samsung BluRay player. But the Anynet feature on the Samsung devices does not work correctly with this sound bar. It will turn off fine when I turn the TV off, but when I turn the TV on, I must use the sound bar control to turn the sound bar on.

NOT a wireless subwoofer, sound is OK but not great

jks "jks", Amazon

  • Summary: Most "wireless subwoofer" systems have a sound bar for midrange and treble located right above or right below the TV. The sound bar is the control center; is wired for the audio inputs and source selection, and is wired to the TV. It then sends a wireless signal to the subwoofer, which can be located anywhere in the room (since low bass frequencies are non-directional). This system is exactly the reverse.

  • Excerpt: покупал этот кинотеатр без предварительного прослушивания (и зря, поскольку не купил бы). Из достоинств - занимает немного места. Много вариантов размещения (можно поставить на пол как отдельные колонки, можно их повесить на стену, можно собрать из двух колонок звуковую панель и кинуть перед телевизором).
  • Pros: Занимает мало места
  • Cons: весьма посредственный звук
