The HW-J8500 is the perfect compliment to my 2015 UN65JS9000FXZA & blows my socks off when watching movies, You Tube or even the News !!! The center channel & clear voice features make
hearing the voices or action in shows or movies just pop out of the 9 channels & Bluetooth wireless
Subwoofer !!! The unit extends from one end of 65 inch TV to the other & looks sleek, stylish & sexy under the tv screen !!! The UN65JS9000FXZA has a great sound but when paired with this Soundbar & Subwoofer it has amazingly awesome sound !!! Don't second guess or over think this one !!! Buy it already, you won't be disappointed! !!! So glad I purchased & will recommend to all friends & family !!!

I purchased these tower speakers to replace my baby samsung sound bar. Instead I ended up getting another sound bar and doing away with the towers. The towers have great sound, except when it comes to using them for watching movies. These towers would be better off with a manual equalizer instead of presets. I was disappointed after hooking them up to my tv. This won't stop me from purchasing further products because I have faith in Samsung products, I'm a loyal customer until the end.

              Overall a very good product , for my taste is missing performance at the subwoofer level . The bar could gain with more definition trough the range.

                        I like the enhance sound, and style of this sound bar, I brought 65 inch 8500 series TV, sound from television wasn't too impressive-sound bar gives it a cinema effect-listening to music from IPhone equally satisfying. I don't want undermine 8500 series TV excellent picture quality when Comcast becomes 4K will enjoy picture quality even better.
