I personally haven't tried it, so can't give first hand info, sorry. But I did find this support-us.samsung.com/cyb…mp; and it looks reasonably straightforward.

Hope it helps.
For anyone interested I found a short
showing the features.

What's the deal with using a Samsung bar with a LG TV for instance, will there be any issues? Will I not be able to control the volume like with a LG bar? Anyone have any idea?

Had to google FWIW there... I must be old!

Thanks, I am definately tempted. After missing out on the curry's 'glitch' towards the end of last year I've been on the look out for a bar.

Haha - sorry for the acronym

Go for it, you won't regret it.
I bought this at the end of last month with the UE55MU7000. Awesome sounding bar, and completely wireless apart from the power cable - uses Bluetooth. Also use the sound bar to play music in the living room from my phone.
I have one of these and it's crap. It's no better sounding than your tv speakers. U still find it hard to hear anyone talking muffled and the settings don't make a bit of difference and the bass is so overpowering. I shoulda put money in 2 a better one. I'd say 50 qiud would be a better price range for this.

What a load of tosh. I have this soundbar with the added rear speaker set too. Very noticable difference over on board sound, both clarity and bass. Maybe you need to play with your settings?

Highly recommend for a mid range bar for medium sized rooms purely looking for a modest upgrade.

Seriously ! I have these and they make a noticeable difference - are you sure you have the settings right?

Any idea how long the power cable is and what type of connector it is?

Reason I ask is I plan to mount it under TV and route the power cable in the wall but space is tight.
Ive got this and sound is great but the wireless sub loses connection after a few days or so and you have to then reset and pair it again. I had the same problem with another model of samsung soundbar with a wireless sub.

Not sure but if you are looking for a 300w LG alternative ebay.co.uk/itm…ay- may work, 10% off using code PAYDAY10 as well
Got one of these last month. Can't remember price. Good piece of kit. As long as your TV has HDMI ARC you will be fine and be able to control volume with TV remote. So for example we are using it on a Sony TV. Only disappointment is it won't pass through 4k so can't run my shield or PS4 pro through it. Excellent bass and boosts voice. I find the sports or night mode the best.
I had one of these bought on Black Friday. The sound is amazing, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. However I had to send mine back as I got a fairly common error where the sub doesn't connect to the bar. The only fix is to send it off to Samsung, which if that happens Currys will want to do, i.e no refunds unless you speak to a manager. This was a great piece of kit though, so don't be too put off by my experience.

Cheers for that. I do prefer the cleaner mesh look to the front of the Samsung one but that looks a cheap buy.

Plenty available in all the stores near to me - yes delivery option doesn't show up - which is ofcourse slightly annoying.
Fairly average price in my opinion.
Looking for a soundbar but there are a few on Richer Sounds that are similar cost so don't fall for the price cut hype.
Waiting on a price drop for the Q Acoustics MEDIA 4, now that looks like a worthy investment.

Thanks for your feedback, helps others. I have been using mine for a couple of weeks too and can't fault it. After my personal experience I thought I should share it here in the hope that it helps someone else on the lookout for a surround kit.

Yeah, not a bad price but seems to be fairly regularly reduced to around this price. I've been trying to decide what to get for ages, don't want to spend loads of money but happy to spend a bit more than this. I've ruled out that Q Acoustics due to it being so ugly, shame as its supposed to be really good.

Ugly?
Looks like a soundbar to me without the hassle of trying to find somewhere for the woofer.

As the earlier thread is more than 4 weeks old now this one is fine to remain @matwalaboy
We get new members all the time and 4 weeks is a reasonable length of time to allow a repost.

Well indeed, looks are subjective. Just don't like the design myslef, never actually looked at one in the flesh though so maybe I should at some point.

And look at the difference in temperature


This place can be funny sometimes - look at 2 deals of the same thing within almost a month of each other and both getting pretty hot :


hotukdeals.com/dea…368
hotukdeals.com/dea…305

And then there was this hotukdeals.com/dea…368 which with the code was even cheaper but not as hot as the others.


Never quite sure what to make of the way it all works really.
