We just set up a new home theatre with a beautiful Sony Bravia Smart TV (which is absolutely fabulous) and were searching for a sound system that delivers a high fidelity surround sound experience without breaking the bank or having a mass of unsightly wires strewn across the floor or walls.
After a lot of market research and a few trips back and forth to Best Buy we finally settled on Samsung’s HW-K550 Soundbar with a wireless Bluetooth subwoofer and our initial reaction on its maiden voyage was WOW!
The sound quality of this system is truly remarkable delivering a home theatre experience unlike any we’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing in our living room. The audio is clear and balanced likely due to its 6 speaker configuration, each with a dedicated amplifier to deliver clear and accurate sound imaging. The subwoofer is a game changer and makes a huge impact to the overall experience with great low hertz tones rumbling with exuberance and literally taking our breath away. It connects to the system wirelessly through bluetooth which is great because then you can keep it out of sight since subwoofers don’t need to be placed in any one specific position because bass tones are so low and powerful they can shake the room from any location.
This system is wireless surround sound ready and compatible with Samsung’s SWA-8000S Wireless Surround Kit which we’re seriously considering – as if things could get any better!
All in all we’re really impressed and obviously can’t say enough positive things about this product. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced way to up your home theatre experience then consider Samsung’s HW-550 Soundbar and redefine high fidelity for yourself.
