  • Summary: The Samsung HW-D550 sound bar speaker system is a compromise between convenience and high performance. Convenience it achieves nicely, with its wireless sub, HDMI cable connections, and handy remote control. No complaints there.

  • Summary: The HW-D550 from Samsung is a product that arrived here without a lot of anticipation. Samsung requested that I look at this product, and after taking a look at a lot of their other consumer electronics products over the past few years, I thought it would be a bit interesting to look at a sound bar,...
  • Pros: Excellent input options, Good sound quality, Wireless sub-woofer doesn't receive interference and just works, USB port for firmware updates, Lots of DSP, 3D, Auto-Level options, Separate bass control and lots of bass

  • Conclusion: With the HW-D550, Samsung manages to pack excellent audio quality and plenty of functionality into a compact, good-looking sound bar.
  • Pros: High-quality audio output. Small, light, attractive. Doubles as a A/V receiver/switch.
  • Cons: "3D Sound" feature is not a true substitute for surround sound.

Surrounding yourself with the Samsung HW-D550 Audio Bar

  • Summary: For a guy who is used to a separate amp, speakers and tons of interconnecting wires, working with an 'all-in-one' sound unit like the Samsung HW-D550 was quite the treat in some respects. But how does it compare where it counts? How does it sound compared to the separate components?
  • Pros: Compact unit which can be easily wall mounted under the TV screen;, Wireless Subwoofer can be placed anywhere without cables showing;, Multiple audio inputs available (and selectable with the remote) to allow this to become the audio 'hub' of the home theatre.
  • Cons: Only two HDMI inputs;, Midrange is emphasized a little too much (for me);, 'Surround' sound is more reverb/delay than actual repositioning via sound processing.
