Very pleased with the sound quality and easy of install
6 August 2014
Summary: Had been searching for a sound bar to work with the new samsung SmartTV we have. I liked the idea of the tubes, can not really hear that they make a direct impact but they look neat and the install could not be easier.. Price was great and it was shipped in 24 hours for no extra fee.
Summary: I was not expecting it to have Bose sound, but it is truly disappointing, considering the price.updating review on July 25, 2014: sound has been intermittently going on and off (hearing every other syllable);very annoying. Have tried every trouble-shooting method to fix. Will call Samsung Monday. If I can attach an HDMI I would prefer over this bluetooth which has proven very unreliable.
Summary: I decided to go for this model as I was expecting something similar to my previous JBL 5.1 system. I have to say that I was a little bit disappointed as the quality of the sound was not really good initially. I bough a Samsung TV and I connected both using the sound share system. The quality of the sound was not as clear as it was posted in other reviews. I decided to connect both systems using a optical cable and the sound was much much better.
Summary: We went in store to listen to Bose soundbar, and then saw this one. It had 2 major things going for us, first $$ and Bluetooth (I know you can't compare sound quality of Bose and Samsung). The product is really great, has Aux-IN which can work for getting TV out here but won't be 5-Channel out though. Sound quality is really good and I think worth the $$ Bluetooth makes it a very great product, you can play songs from any Bluetooth supporting device.
Summary: Caution this sound bar burnt up, and cause damage to my TV stand. I had this sound bar for only 8 days before it had problems. I had to send to back to Samsung for repair and Samsung customer service sucks. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM FROM ANYWHERE!!!!!
Samsung has taken some serious liberty on their description

Summary: If you try this product and like the sound, then by all means, enjoy it. But, it is not a "tube" amp and does not have a "discrete" amplifier as described. It does have a tube pre-amp which has very little to do with a "warm sound" at the output. The use of the word "discrete" with the word amp insinuates that the amplifier is made from "discrete components" which is defined as no integrated circuits.
Summary: I first laughed at the technology of having vaccum tubes but after running this by a few friends who are musicians they told me to give it a go. What a difference! The sound can be loud at times, but also crystal clear. I am very pleased with my purchase and cannot imagine why they are no longer making this, I am happy to have one!
