Samsung R3 Wireless Audio (WAM3500) review - Music for any room & for every room

 

The Samsung R3 is a great multiroom speaker that produces 360 degree sound, and is better value than its R5 big brother

However, it's worth noting that if you’re not intending on having the speaker take a central position in your room, then the omnidirectional sound will be a bit of a waste, so you’ll be better served by a more standard stereo speaker such as Sony’s...

Samsung R3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The mid-sized of the three in Samsung's 'omnidirectional' R range, the R3s cylindrical design disperses sound evenly around the room. But will it lack the punch of the bigger R5 or be too cumbersome compared to the smaller R1? Find out whether the R3...

Samsung R3 Wireless Multiroom Speaker

 

Serving up 360-degree omni directional sound, the R3 multiroom speaker from Samsung is a beautifully put together piece of audio equipment.

Lacks portability; On-device controls a little finicky

The Samsung R3 wireless speaker is clean and simple, both in design and execution. While there are certainly other room speakers that can deliver better sound quality, they often cost four to five times more than the R3. As such, for any consumer...

Samsung R3 360 Wireless Speaker Review

 

Samsung's latest 360 speaker delivers omni-directional sound in a cheaper package but does the R3 do enough to stand out in a crowded market place.

Excellent sound quality ; No sweet spot ; Effective multiroom app ; Easy to setup and control

Loss of stereo separation

The Samsung R3 is an attractively designed and well constructed wireless speaker that offers a tempting combination of performance and features. The use of a cylindrical shape is interesting and the omni-directional technology delivers a balanced 360...

Excellent speaker, poor implementation of Multiroom

 

The sound of the speaker is as good as I had hoped. Clear sound even at low levels, and also able to produce strong sounds without distortion. It also looks good in my kitchen - I wanted to be able to hear the TV when I was cooking or making coffee. I...

Awesome speaker

 

I added this to my Samsung sound bar and two R1 speakers and it rounds out a large rooms sound perfectly. Easy to setup easy to use and works great with Smartthings as an added bonus

Samsung R3 Wireless Speaker

 

A quality speaker providing excellent dialogue clarity when connected to a Smart TV. With certain TV programmes appearing to suffer from mumbled speech this speaker provides an ideal solution / improvement especially with TV speakers getting slimmer.
