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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
