    I have wanted a soundbar since getting my first Samsung TV in 2011 but just couldn't justify the prices. I finally grabbed one with the price reductions that occurred around Thanksgiving. The improvement over the rear-firing speakers in televisions is significant. I have a 5.1 sound system on the same TV where I installed the soundbar but sometimes it's just not worth turning everything on for casual TV watching. The audio from a subwoofer-supported system adds a lot of additional enjoyment you cannot get from the speakers in a television. Besides the improvement realized while watching TV, I really like being able to stream audio from my smartphone to the soundbar. Now I can listen to AT40 on iHeart radio with much better fidelity. I still need to play MP3 files from a USB drive so see what that's like. In summary, if you're unsure about whether you will get much from a soundbar, let me assure you you will never regret purchasing one.

    I have this system connected to my Samsung TV via HDMI. The sub-woofer makes virtually no sound at all, and is worthless. I have the volume for the sub-woofer turned all the way up to +6, and still has no bass at all. The wireless symbol is lit, thus it is connected. The remote is cheap as well, and will not control my TV on/off, nor will the sound bar remote turn my TV on/off. Thus taking me from 1 remote to 3 remotes. The remote has no lighting at all, and there is no timer feature to automatically shut-off. Very unhappy with the overall features, and not really worth the price. Will give it another few days, but it looks like it is going back.

              Comments about Samsung 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater System:

              The sound quality and performance of the sound bar is exceptional especially for the price of the product. It was very easy to set up to my Samsung TV and my other electronics. I would highly recommend this product especially for the price since it is easy to set up and use. Anyone looking to get into the market should look at starting with this soundbar.

                The sound bar has poorer quality sound then the TV itself. The sub woofer doesn't even work as a sub woofer emitting very minimal volume at all with no depth to the sound at all. Not even worth the effort to turn it on. We have always been happy with the Samsung products we own, not this one.
