Samsung HW-C450 home cinema soundbar

 

It's not designed with Blu-ray in mind, but this stylish soundbar is still a terrific performer

Samsung HW-C450 review

 

Sound bars aren't as thin as the slimmest HDTVs yet, but the Samsung HW-C450 ($300 street price) is getting close. It is less than 2 inches thick, which seems almost impossibly thin, considering the fact that it houses six drivers and built-in...

Sound bar home theater system; very thin design; wireless subwoofer; surprisingly solid sound quality on movies, given its size; three inputs (two optical, one minijack); simple setup; useful "smart volume" control.

No HDMI connectivity; sounds lackluster with music; faux-surround effects are mild.

The Samsung HW-C450 is an exceedingly thin sound bar home theater system that sounds surprisingly good with movies, but lacks HDMI connectivity.

Samsung HW-C450 Soundbar Reviewed

 

This 2.1 speaker soundbar system from Samsung is an excellent, slim option for LED HDTV owners. The main speaker is thin and sleek looking while the six inch, side-firing subwoofer provides suitable bass for small rooms and configurations....

The HW-C450 looks great, is wonderfully small, and works like a charm ; The HW-C450 sounds good for its size, providing enough fidelity and dynamics across both music and movies to make it a versatile performer ; The HW-C450 offers a fantastic...

The HW-C450 sounded a bit thin and slow on vocal and acoustic musical tracks, and could have used a shade more immediacy in the midrange with movies and games ; The HW-C450 doesn't offer HDMI or any video switching ; The HW-C450 doesn't decode HD audio...

The HW-C450 really sets a high standard for products in its class. It just does so many things so well, that its few nits just fall by the wayside. Could it use some more oomph sonically? Sure, but then it would also be much bigger and wouldn't look...

Samsung HW-C450 2.1 Channel Audio Bar Home Theatre System

 

Whenever people start thinking about their home theater setups, they usually think of the television first. Sure, visuals mean a lot and that's why it's worthwhile to invest in a ...

Slim design with included wall mount ; Surprising potent and robust ; Thoroughly enjoyable gaming experience ; Wireless subwoofer requires no setup ; A good value, especially with integrated amplifier

No HDMI input or passthrough ; Virtual surround sound is uninspiring ; Simple music playback is mediocre

As far as input options, you get a single 3.5mm stereo mini input and a pair of optical audio inputs. The stereo mini jack can be used for regular RCA audio (red and white) audio input too, using the supplied adapter cable. The real shame here, though,...

One happy camper :)

 

As the title says, I'm very happy with this soundbar. I have this connected to my Media Centre PC via optical SPDIF and the sound is excellent for tv, music and movies. The sound is crisp even at very high volume. Deducted 1 star for the subwoofer...
