" ...  The sound is nice but doesn't get loud enough. ... And the sound is wonderful. ... We set it to surround with the bass boost, have the sub set to +2, and holy moly! ... Fills my modest size carpet free living room with brilliant sound.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound is awesome without the sub. ... Added a Polk 100 watt sub with it, My 55" Samsung sounds like a movie theater. ... Do not hesitate on buying this sound bar, YOU WILL LOVE IT!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Samsung has speakers on the back and the sound quality is only OK, and I’m not someone to complain about that but it does sound like the TV is in a hallway ... I searched for sound bars for a while, and randomly came upon this one. ... We also use it as a Bluetooth speaker and sounds great next to our Alexa which personally I feel has good sound as well.  ...  "
comment
" ...  As other reviews have stated, this soundbar is superior to most soundbars that come with a matching subwoofer. ... It holds its own when it comes to bass and overall audio quality/clarity, yet can easily be upgraded with a basic 100 watt sub, or a more powerful one.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound is good, you can hear clear differences in the different settings. ... And, you don't need the sound bar on to watch tv with the normal speakers if you hook it up with hdmi and utilize the passive flow through. ... I bought this one also for the bass extension. ... Bose did not offer a affordable sound bar with added bass and I love extra bass.  ...  "

" ...  Other than that it worked great, the sound was good for what it was, decent bass from the built in "mini subs" Easy to operate, easy to pair with cell or ipad for bluetooth.  ...  "
comment
" ...  There is a balanced response with sufficient bass.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We'll keep the sub-woofer, though, since this unit has an output for a subwoofer that helps push the bass for movies.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It already has an awesome low frequency, built-in subwoofer. ... I chose to turn the internal sub all the way down and increase the bass on the external sub.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The bass is deep yet natural.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's got decent bass response for its size.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Even without a separate sub woofer this sound bar has a great full sound.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This sound bar is replacing my TV's "stereo speakers w/ bass" that do not sound very stereophonic at all. ... In fact, the bass sounds like someone passing gas on a piece of sheet metal. ... Is even more emphatic, when you use the bass boost feature.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I was determined to find something with Bluetooth, ARC (so I could control it with my TV remote), good, balanced sound, and with a max height of 3" and width of 39" (to fit my TV cabinet), all on a budget of around $100. ... The remote looks simple and dated but is perfectly functional.  ...  "

comment
" ...  They run through a series of possible scenarios - you can't just jump to something like the buttons on the non-working remote indicate you should be able to do. ... And pretty much the same thing happened with the remote. ... Then a day or two later I picked up the remote that had been lay next to my chair and it just started working.  ...  "
