This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

3910800_1.jpg2021.samsungpromotions.claims/tvs…ack Samsung's five-channel S61A sound bar is designed to fill your home space with sound and complement your interior with premium fabric design. It features side horn speakers with acoustic beam for a wider sound stage, and a dedicated centre speaker for clear dialogue. You can stream music over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and with the Alexa voice assistant built-in, you can control it and get info, just by speaking.

Compact design, premium style
With seven internal speakers, this all-in-one sound bar reproduces rich bass, a detailed mid-range and high trebles with delicacy and clarity, for a natural sound from a compact unit. Wrapped in a beautiful textile fabric, the S61A brings contemporary style to any interior.

Acoustic Beam technology with Side horn speakers and Centre speaker
With Samsung’s enhanced Acoustic Beam technology and dual-sided horn speakers, you get a wider sound range and improved sound quality, so you’re immersed in a panoramic sound experience. Meanwhile, a built-in centre speaker ensures crystal clear dialogue.

Adaptive sound
Adaptive Sound assesses what you're watching and optimises each scene with AI sound. So feel like you’re in the stadium when watching live sport, be immersed in thrilling action sequences, or hear gentle dialogue with crystal clarity.

Alexa built in
Easily control this smart sound bar and other compatible devices using Alexa voice control which is built in. So you can play music, adjust settings, check the weather, get questions answered, and more, hands-free.

Stream music over Wi-Fi
With Wi-Fi built into the S61A, you can access your favourite streaming services. Ask Alexa, or stream via the SmartThings app on your mobile device which can link to your Spotify, Deezer or TuneIn account*. Samsung’s dedicated Music Mode ensures audio is optimised for music when using this sound bar purely as a speaker. And you can stream seamlessly from iOS devices with Apple Airplay 2.

Bluetooth connection and HDMI
Connect your compatible TV without the mess of wires thanks to Bluetooth. And you can stream your top tunes from your Bluetooth smart device too. You also have the option to connect to the TV by HDMI for a top-quality wired connection.

Expandable
Expand your sound system for the fully cinematic surround sound experience. The S61A is compatible with Samsung’s SWA-W500 wireless subwoofer for even more powerful bass, and SWA-9100S wireless rear speakers. Both of these are available separately.

    If you aren't averse to the initial outlay, and trust Samsung's cashback, then the bonus cashback offered makes 3 soundbars just £47. Samsung offers £50 bonus cashback for each additional purchase from the same retailer, up to twice:

    - 1 × Soundbar: £199 - £150 = £49
    - 2 × Soundbar: £398 - (£150 × 2) - £50 = £48
    - 3 × Soundbar: £597 - (£150 × 3) - (£50 × 2) = £47

    but is this sounder any good?


    Got one a few months ago and as somebody who would never buy a soundbar but for these offers I've found it to be a very good upgrade and nice to have but if I would've paid £200 or even the £300-400 RRP I would've been disappointed. It makes a big difference when listening to music especially, and has a 'voice enhancement' option which I've found works really well, making voices clear and easy to interpret when sometimes they'd be a bit muffled by my TV speakers. I wouldn't say it's outstanding and if you already have a soundbar it's probably not going to be a massive upgrade but if not it's well worth picking up with the cashback offer.

    Mate just read the terms of the promotion. The common interpretation of it is that any product on Amazon (except when sold by Amazon themselves) is ineligible, regardless of whether the seller is a participating retailer. There may be some leniency, and you can most likely do it if you can obtain an invoice from Reliant Direct themselves (perhaps contact them?).

    Any other recipients struggling with bluetooth? I've used PC, surface pro, shield, fire tv 4k max and fire tablet - all slightly out of synch on iplayer, netflix, kodi (local files), IPTV, Plex etc etc.
    Unit could have done with a hdmi in or at least aux

    *EDIT - Fire TV stick will synch up perfectly if - Settings > Display & Sounds > Display & Sound > Surround Sound > Dolby Digital (last option)
    **EDIT 2 - Bought THIS from Amazon. After a bit of set up, it synchs perfectly through the optical, and a much richer sound than bluetooth. (edited)

    Going to risk it for a buiscuit! Got 2, hopefully will get them for £50. Figured paying via paypal + 100 day return that Reliant Direct offer means that worst case its a bit of hassle just to send them back. Wont open either until I get the cashback!

    Wha?199-150=49199-50=149So two for £198, or one for £49.


    You can claim multple cashbacks, apparently. So would indeed be £50 for two. 2 x £150 cashbacks plus 1x £50 bonus.

    Doesn't seem right!

    Got a couple of these in the Xmas promo, so paid very little for the pair. These are ok as soundbars, not great but worth the low price after cashback. However, the Alexa functionality is terrible (can't disable the 'chime' when Alexa kicks in, Spotify won't work directly via Alexa but you need to stream by faffing with device selection within the Spotify app). Ridiculous that these things come easily on £30 mini speakers but Samsung cant nail functionality like this on their tech. You'll end up disabling the functionality other than the basic soundbar pretty fast.

    Does it need to be for the cashback?


    It says preorder in my order confirmation email. So not sure whether that will cause issues in cashback. However only order needs to be placed before 5 April.

    Strangely, Reliant Direct is one of the seller on Amazon for the same price but it says guaranteed delivery by 29 March.........so may be it is in stock (to be updated/consolidate stock) just not directly available yet......

Mine doesn’t auto connect for some reason.I have same annoyance. Hooked it up via HDMI and it only doesn't require manual selection to the speaker if you select first time and have tv on stand by. If you switch off tv and turn it on again you have to manually connect again.Fab speaker otherwise


    Had no issues at all with mine, hdmi arc and evrything works well. I didnt set up alexa though but have set up samgsung smart things and updated firmware. Great speaker if you dont want too much base. clarity is very good.

    dogsballs27/03/2022 08:21

    but is this sounder any good?


    Yes for tv and general watching but it lacks base for room shaking movie action. I love it because the voices are so clear with a dedicated central speaker. Its far better than a tcl 8111 atmos bar for instance . If you want sub woofer effect look elsewhere if you just want decent sound its ideal. Good for music also as neutral overall. (edited)

    I too was waiting for mine past the delivery date (approx 2 weeks late) when they had promised they would deliver. However when I called them to check they told me my order was put thru manually over phone so it was not automatically dispatched!
    Anyways they offered the next day delivery and got mine on the next day.

    Not my first time.............I have used Samsung cashback before and received it fully(buds, S21 to name a few) and they have paid out so.............this is not like TCB where tracing & luck is needed............it is almost sureshot cashback as long as the Samsung T&Cs are met.

    Also the soundbars are at a good price, I could not find it cheaper than £199(now increased to £249)...........if we keep the cashback out of discussion.
    I was actually not planning to buy a soundbar but with this if I get 3 soundbars for less than £50 then even my other half wont complain! and that says something

    Buy 3 and you will get £150 cashback on each and £100 bonus which means 3 for £47. (edited)

    So, I've just had a call aswell advising me of the same info, that they don't have any in stock.

    I was also offered 1 black one... I asked if this would be price matched to the £199 and was hesitantly told yes.

    I also asked if It was possible to stretch to 2 devices and after deliberation, got 2.

    So all in £398 for 2

    2 x £150 cash back plus an additional £50. So still managed to get 2 for £48.

    Just received my updated invoice. So looks all good. (edited)

I suppose of they are delivered we will find out lol.


    Cashback is per item (up to 3), regardless of whether its 1 or 3 orders. You'll receive £550 cashback if you order 3, but all needs to be from same retailer for bonus to qualify. (edited)
