Customer Reviews

Either another Mini-HDMI to HDMI cable OR an optical cable.
GI
You have to use the sound bar's remote to turn it on, but the TV remote or the DirecTV remote will turn it off.

This is a sleek, simple setup that looks great and provides GREAT sound!

I love the system once I figured out how to set it up. The instructions are not helpful, in fact, they describe the system operation opposite of reality. It's all about the wiring. The system comes with a Red/White RCA wire that merges to a 1/8" minijack. It also comes with a special HDMI wire with a mini HDMI on one side. The instructions say if you want the soundbar to be controlled by the TV remote (which is what I wanted) then you need to use a fiber optic cable (not provided). So I bought one for $17 and plugged it in. The sound bar worked but not as described. The TV did not control the soundbar. For grins I decided to plug in the HDMI cable they provided even though the manual said the TV would not control the soundbar in such a configuration. But exactly where to plug it in was another ordeal in itself. The HDMI cable goes in the "ARC" HDMI port on the TV. I didn't even know I had one...but I did. Neither the TV manual nor the soundbar manual provided much detail on what ARC is or how it works. I thought of the HDMI ports as input only. Turns out the HDMI #2 is also the ARC port (Audio Return Channel). I plugged the soundbar into the ARC HDMI port on my 8000 series Samsung LED and turned it on and then the magic began! The TV's internal speaker automatically shut off and the TV remote controlled the soundbar. I decided to test the Samsung BLU-ray which was still plugged in the TV (not the soundbar). To my utter surprise, the TV volume control on the BLU-ray remote also controlled the soundbar.

Other reviewers said their Samsung TV could not control this soundbar. My TV is last year's 8000 series and it controls the soundbar just fine with the HDMI cable provided in the box.

The subwoofer just plugs in and self-connects wirelessly to the soundbar.

Ok, so I read that this Soundbar/Sub sounds great but they are hard to set up and that there are "usability issues"...here is how I set it up in 30min and everything works and sounds perfect.

This system uses the HDMI 1.4 ARC (audio return channel) if you want the soundbar to be automatically controlled. If your TV has an HDMI ARC (will be marked as such) input then connect the Soundbar to that directly. Then connect your Cable/Sat TV, DVD/BluRay, Apple TV, etc.. directly to your TV via HDMI. What should happen is that your TV will then route the audio through the HMDI ARC connection directly to your Soundbar. In turn, this will mean that your TV remote will control the sound, and the soundbar will turn on/off with your TV. The manual is horrible and does not clearly state how to properly connect.

How is the sound. It is pretty good...I have a "nice" component system downstairs and the Samsung unit does not compare to that. If you are looking for component sound then this is not for you. Now, if your wife says that she doesn't want big speakers and a $1200 receiver in her family room, then this is perfect. Sound is rich, although geared more toward the highs...but sounds good, even at higher volumes.

Would I recommend : Yes. Is the manual helpful: Absolutely Not.

This Samsung HW-D550 Home Theater System is a simple, yet amazing set of speakers that gets the job done. Our Samsung LED has a very weak single speaker that needs to be set to near "20" to get somewhat room-filling sound. The HW-D550 takes care of that problem and the speaker bar fits on our mantle perfectly! As I said, this is a simple system that works sufficiently to meet our needs; we were not looking for room-rumbling lows or multiple speakers located in every corner. We just wanted a fuller sound at lower volumes with a little bit of bass thrown in.

Just purchased this soundbar, and the sound quality was great for what I was looking for. The subwoofer might be a little weak, but I'm satisfied as long as it performs better than my TV speakers.

On the other hand, I was disappointed in how the soundbar doesn't seem to work well with other devices. I have a samsung tv with anynet+. According to the manual, the TV's remote should be able to control the sound bar. I discovered right off the bat, that pressing the power button to turn on the TV via the TV's remote did not automatically turn on the soundbar. This was a feature I was hoping would work, but maybe I'd jumped to conclusions, and this was never promised. Turning off the TV via the TV remote definitely turns off both TV and soundbar.

I also have a Roku, and this is where the soundbar falters the most. I've used two methods of connecting the Roku.

Method 1 : Connect soundbar to TV and connect Roku to TV. This seemed to result in anynet+ cutting out. Basically, I can no longer control my soundbar with my TV's remote.

Method 2 : Connect soundbar to TV and connect Roku to sound bar. This also causes anynet+ to cut out.

In the end, I'm forced to either keep the Roku disconnected from my TV except for when I find I want to use it, or live with the soundbar not working properly with anynet+.

Also, another annoying thing was that once anynet+ cuts out, the TV doesn't seem to recognize that its audio should shut off and redirect audio to the soundbar. This is why I have to now keep my TV volume at 0.

I'm hoping that eventually samsung might come out with a firmware upgrade of some sort to rectify these issues.

One last sticking point is the manual.
