I already had a surround system and didn't want another gadget cluttering up the entertainment shelf but the speakers in the Samsung LED TV that I have start buzzing at low frequencies and I don't want to run the TV through the surround system all of the time. I disabled the internal speakers from the settings menu on the TV and connected it to the optical in on the sound bar. So far Anynet works well enough between the Sound bar, TV and PS3. The TV remote does not turn on the sound bar but the sound bar remote works adequately with both. The sound is pretty good and the subwoofer handles the low frequencies well. The sound presets handle pretty much all of my listening needs but some end user adjustment flexibility would be nice. It's a little spendy for what it is but it sounds better than the TV speakers and I like the Anynet compatibility.

The sound and sub-woofer performance is better than comparable model of a near price. There are different sound settings of which only one seems worthwhile. Loudness is good and harmonic distortion low at a modest loudness level. Samsung does not provide adequate support for third party remote controls and would seem to have problems with the control for a Samsung TV remote’s ability to control the level of the sound bar or to turn the unit on/off while using the Digital Cable. The sound bar display is tiny and dim; certainly NOT readable for the sound level and no lights blink when the remote changes sound levels, modes, or functions which makes its hard to use. No light comes on when the sound bar is muted either. There is nothing that shows what sound mode is selected (six different sound modes - MUSIC, NEWS, DRAMA, CINEMA, SPORTS, GAME) HDMI and Optical cables are not supplied. A tool to access a reset option on the Bluetooth within the Sub-woofer (very slender small hole only access) is NOT supplied. The power cord is hard wired and does not allow a pluggable right-angle standard power cord. There is no installation drawing showing the proper dimensions to position of the bracket. The bracket supplied only allows co-linear mounting not also mounting from above. I have not resolved the issue of having to use two different remotes to watch and hear sound.

One Tragic Flaw

    Comments about Samsung Black 2.1 Channel Home Theater AudioBar:

    This is an awesome sound bar for the price. It's a great way to add depth to your audio. The single problem is that your Samsung TV remote will not turn your sound bar on. It can change the volume and turn it off, but it can't and won't turn it on. The sound-bar is unlikely to be programmable into your universal remote, so you MUST keep the remote handy to do nothing other than turn the sound-bar on. This is quite silly. If Samsung were to update firmware of something to fix this problem, I would give this product overwhelming support.

        Comments about Samsung Black 2.1 Channel Home Theater AudioBar:

        Do not buy this for anything other than a device that you sit RIGHT in front of. It is too quiet for a living room or tv. It is about equally loud as the regular plasma tv speakers. The sound quality sounds nicer but you cant turn it up very loud. It is about as loud as someone talking to you in a normal voice.

              The audio won't sync with the video on my Samsung TV no matter what I do. This is very distracting when watching a movie. Too bad, because the sound quality is great.

                      This sound bar is fantastic! You feel like you are in a movie theater. The floor in my living room vibrates when it is set up. The sound is the very best. I'd recommend this to anyone. This is by far a great system for anyone who enjoys great sound with a great movie! The only thing I would like is a better way to mount the bar on the wall.

                          I bought this sound bar to replace a Home theater that was 10 years old. I did not expect the great sound that came out of the sound bar and sub woofer. It only took about 2 minutes to set up so it will come on automatically with my Samsung TV. I used and Optical cable and an very impressed with the way sound fills my room. Will probably buy another one for the TV in the other room.

                              Sound quality is better than tv speakers but not equal to 5.1 surround sound as some have suggested. Appearance of the uncovered speakers is subject to personal taste but my wife made me put it behind the tv so she couldn't see it. It works with Samsung TV Anynet feature but getting it to turn on and off with the tv power is not so easy. If you hook it up with the digital tv output it will go off with the tv power off but not turn on with the tv power on. To get it to turn on with the tv power you have to hook it up with the HDMI pass throught which is how I hooked up my Samsung bluray to take advantage of the Anynet feature. As for value I've seen highly rated 5.1 systems for similar prices. Good thing about this system is it gets rid of having to run a lot of wires and place a lot of speakers.
