SAMSUNG HW-K551 3.1 Wireless Sound Bar

 

Ease of set up, buttons on remote a good size, specifically bought to link with my Samsung T.V. Much better than my last Sony sound bar which I gave away.

Not really.

SAMSUNG HW-K551 3.1 Wireless Sound Bar

 

Easy to install, good sound modes, very nice remote

Wireless Subwoover disconnects from soundbar. Bluetooth disconnects from source if someone walks between the signal path. Very weak link with short range, less than 2 meters.
