While the SoundTouch 300 soundbar sounds great on its own, you can add the Acoustimass 300 wireless bass module and Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers to get a more immersive 5.1 system experience—the kind of rich, dramatic bass and full-on surround sound that makes you feel like you are in the center of all the action.
The SoundTouch 300 soundbar delivers clear, spacious sound. Every cubic inch of this speaker is packed with technologies that bring your music and movies to life. It starts inside with custom-shaped speakers that keep the profile low and pump out big sound. Quiet Port technology virtually eliminates distortion so you hear surprisingly deep bass.

On the outside, the glass top and perforated wrap-around metal grille make the soundbar look as good in your room as it sounds. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology are built in, so you can wirelessly stream music any way you prefer, while NFC provides quick and easy pairing. The SoundTouch app gives you simple control over your favorites. And the SoundTouch 300 soundbar works together with other SoundTouch speakers, like a family. You can start with the SoundTouch 300 and add other SoundTouch speakers when you are ready. And while the SoundTouch 300 soundbar sounds great by itself, you can add the Acoustimass 300 wireless bass module and/or Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers at anytime to get even more performance and a full 5.1 experience. Place the soundbar on a table below your TV, or save even more space by using the optional wall bracket. It's all run by a universal remote, so you can control your other devices, too.

BTW, I read lots of reviews where people had issues using HDMI ARC connection from a TV to the soundbar. Maybe these were older and since resolved in firmware updates prior to my purchase, but I have seen none of these issues. It works flawlessly!! I never have to touch the Bose remote since the Samsung remote controls the Bose in conjunction with TV and honestly is an incredible remote design. For music, I never touch a remote. Just use the app on multiple devices. Found an old iphone sitting around gathering dust. Loaded the app and now its our dedicated music controller but can still pull out any of our phones, ipads, etc. and use that app. Whatever is most convenient at the moment. Couldn't be happier!!
I have the SoundTouch 300 hooked up to my LG 55UH8500 via HDMI-ARC in order to control the soundbars volume via my TV's included remote and haven't had any issues with it so far. Setting up the SoundTouch 300 was a breeze, you just choose the method in which you want to hook it up to your TV HDMI ARC or Optical cable then you go ahead and use the included ADAPTiQ headset to configure the SoundTouch 300 to the acoustics in your living room or bedroom, and it really does make a difference.
I highly recommend the SoundTouch 300 to anyone who wants to upgrade their home theater system, but doesn't want the inconvenience of wires running all over the place, in this case the SoundTouch 300 is perfect and delivers clear crisp audio with the only major con being the weak bass performance which made me drop another 700 on the bass module.
Crisp Distortion Free Audio Even At Max Volume
Does a good job at simulating surround sound
Looks and feels like a premium product
Poor Bass performance which prompted the purchase of the bass module
True to other reviews, the build quality of the system is stellar. Bose really outdid themselves and created a beautiful piece of stereo equipment. It's truly gorgeous. One of the big selling points to me on this system was the TV connectivity via HDMI ARC. This would allow me to connect to my TV, bypass a receiver entirely, and still have the optical out on my TV to go to a pair of wireless headphones for the Mrs and me in the evenings when the kiddos went to sleep. I connected mine via the included Bose HDMI cable and followed the instructions included. The entire process was painless and worked as advertised. I had my system up and streaming Internet Radio, Amazon Instant Videos via the Samsung App, even iTunes music from my personal Mac in no time flat. Let's call it an hour from unbox to sitting down and enjoying it.
On the sound front, perhaps I was expecting too much based on all the prior reviews, but I honestly wasn't that impressed. Sure, it sounded "good" and much better than the anemic speakers Samsung put in my 55" SUHD TV, but it certainly wasn't anything to write home with. Even after the AdaptIQ calibration, I was not enamored with the sounds I was hearing. But, as I said earlier, it was better than I had, so I decided it was definitely an improvement and I'd probably just need to spend the extra money on the matching sub and surround speakers in a few days. It seemed most of the reviewers had the subs to accompany their systems anyway.
Fast forward 48 hours to tonight. I came home, flipped on the TV and wanted to relax this evening and enjoy the new system. Unfortunately, I found that I had zero sound. Going through my Samsung's menus, I found all of a sudden, the speakers weren't even being recognized. Odd. Especially since it worked perfectly not but 2 hours prior with no changes made. So, being fairly technically savvy, I started right into troubleshooting mode. I unplugged/power cycled all the devices, re-checked the config in the TV menus, checked all the wires... I even did a factory reset on both the TV and the sound bar. All to no avail.
Having struck out myself on resolving the issue, and now being incredibly irritated that my relaxing evening watching a show was shot, I decided to do a quick Internet Web search for "SoundTouch 300 no sound." WOW. I sure wish I would have had the foresight to have searched for that BEFORE purchasing! As it turns out, my situation was anything but unique. On Bose's own forums, there are dozens of pages of posts with users reporting the exact same scenario. Most revolve around a connection to their Samsung TV and all via the HDMI ARC connection. After months of posts to this forum, and acknowledgement of the problem by Bose, users are still without any resolution to the issue. The best work-around given has been to connect via Optical cable instead -- something I did verify fixed the issue -- but is not a solution for me given that I use my optical out for other audio devices.
LONG story short... there apparently is a big and well documented, known bug in this system when used with the HDMI ARC connection -- as Bose specifically recommends you use in the setup. It appears most problems are with newer Samsung TVs, but other TVs such as Sony, Sharp and LG have been reported by users. This has rendered my system completely useless.
I really wish I could give this system higher marks, but, well... being as mine is non-functional -- as is the systems of many others -- I simply cannot. I'll keep mine for another week in hope that Bose releases a fix. But if not, mine will be getting shipped back at the first of next week.
