Like many persons i purchased this in the perception that it was wireless. As i plan to conceal the subwoofer in the much corner of the area (it is big) i now will need to buy a seven meter optical cable to run from the subwoofer to the tv set. Most people today would suppose that wireless implies that no wiring is required involving the subwoofer and the speakers this is not the situation and is extremely deceptive. The seem of the soundbar is just what we needed nevertheless, great and modern and uncomplicated wanting but it can be disappointing that when i went to set up it i uncover that i need to have to obtain an additional, a lot longer optical cable.

Been given the product – extremely nicely packed. Plenty of polystyrene and cardboard for the nearby tipthe setting up recommendations still left a little to be sought after. It took more than 2 hrs to get it functioning – we were being plugging the seem outlet into the tv set and it should have been in the sky box. Appears to be very simple plenty of, but i am not au-fait with sales opportunities,inputs,outputs, so a tiny far more basic discuss on the instructions would have been welcomed. Also, as mentioned in advance of, this is not wi-fi. The sub woofer is at the back of my television and i had no challenge with the wires and cables and hiding them – it would be a nightmare if you have a wall-mounted tv set. All in all, very excellent value, even nevertheless i had to purchase two leads in addition, costing an additional £30.

Excellent for projector method. Was perfectly packaged straight ahead to set up appears and sounds great. However this was acquired for a projector set-up in which the disc participant and projector are all at the rear of the place. Which is where i positioned the sub-woofer. No want to run cables to the front of the area in which the principal speakers are wirelessly linked beside the projector monitor. Still unobtrusive when the screen is away.Here are the specifications for the Samsung HW-E551 310W 2:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Convertible speakers allows you to choose from four freestyle locations; stand-mounting, wall-mounting, soundbar or 2.1Ch speaker
  • Wireless connectivity means no loss of quality with no wires between the soundbar and subwoofer
  • Surround and 3D Depth sound effectis delivered to every corner of your room, with the benefit of fewer speakers and no wires

This sound system is one of the best i have ever bought, the sound is spectacular and lives up to my exspectations.

1 system as moved to smaller house – sound just as good with new system & much neater. Like the flexibility of how to place speakers, i have them floor-standing.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • OK but very much a mid range sound system
  • Perfect match for Samsung Smart TV ue46es6710

Great audio, quick to use, seems magnificent and performs iphone via bluetooth. The audio is good for the funds, however, when actively playing by way of bluetooth you can at occasions listen to distortion. But i imagine it does not assistance that i am streaming spotify and taking part in it as a result of bluetooth. For a significantly far better audio you can join via an audio jack guide. But obtaining the bluetooth selection is very practical when i’m listening on the go or streaming from my macbook. I have it established up as a sound bar and it appears to be like really great. Blu-rays sound great by way of 3d audio and the base is seriously excellent. I can think about that the confusion over the subwoofer currently being marketed as wi-fi is annoying, as the sound bar is the only wireless section. As i have my television on a stand it does not bring about any challenges. Total, i believe that it does lots of issues quite perfectly and immediately after listening to quite a few in the keep, i feel that for the dollars this is almost certainly as superior as they get.

My boyfriend liked it, the audio is actually incredible and it seems to be incredibly good as effectively. Just make absolutely sure you know what color of the box it will be,as i thought i requested in black, but i obtained a gray one particular, but looks definitely awesome as very well.

Ok but very much a mid range sound system. Its a step up from the flat, constrained sound we get with our state of the art new tvs but i got hold of this system for half price – (new) nevertheless. Glad i didn’t pay the full £300+ because it does lack high end treble and i’ve had to tweak settings by keeping my tv speakers on with bass off to create some equalisation and balance. Very much a mid-range sound system and most of the pre settings sound very similar. Handles bass ok and suggestions it doesn’t go low enough are probably from users who live in rooms of over half an acre.

Amazing quality speakers the best i’ve ever owned. Amazing quality speakers the best i’ve ever owned, handy thin satellite speakers for a desk and a powerful sub-woofer for all the bass you could need.

Perfect match for samsung smart tv ue46es6710. I have a wall mounted samsung smart tv ue46es6710 with all wiring hidden in the wall and the hdmi running under the floor to a socket where i have a samsung 3d bluray player. I needed a system that had the arc function to enable the tv to send audio back down the hdmi to a speaker system. This unit does this perfectly and allows me to locate the subwoofer close to the blueray player and have the front speakers in each corner wireless from subwoofer, albeit with a speaker wire between them. Connectivity was easy, this system automatically connected to the tv and allows me to control every basic function for all three devices from one controller. Sound quality is very good unlike other reviews i found whether playing for tv, bluray or music from phone using bluetooth it is always crisp and we’ll balanced, with good undistorted bass. Arc is something i only recently heard about and would recommend it to anyone like me who forgot to run a optical line through the wall for audio.

Sounds amazing and so easy to set up, you will need an optical digital cable with this item if you do not have sky or cable tv.

Generally i really like the sound-bar but don’t buy one thinking it will replace a full surround sound system. It looks great and the blue tooth connection for the iphone is a really nice touch for playing music. The samsung hw-e551 sound-bar is a great buy if you want better sound but don’t want crazy amounts of wires everywhere or the expense of buying a wireless surround sound system. If you’re renting for example and likely to move etc. I would strongly recommend this product to you.

I only purchased this because there was a money back offer on amazon / samsung. It seems to be a con 6-7 months on and nothing received.

I bought this samsung product to match my 46 inch smart tv. I read the reviews before i made my purchase. Yes the product description is a little misleading but im no wiring expert but i managed to wire it up without the instruction book in five mins. This product is the biz wire it up via optical cable and the sound is awesome. If you play about with the multitude of sound options its sounds ace. Cant fault this speaker system love it.

I still haven’t resolved a problem connecting the sub-woofer via hdmi to a samsung tv. The only way i can get the soundbar to work is by connecting the sky box to the aux port on the woofer. The configuration is: sky box, blue ray and soundbar all hdmi connectected direct to the tv port. The soundbar port recommended in the installation guide is “hdmi out” i also swapped the sky box hdmi lead with the sub-woofer hdmi lead to ensure there wasn’t a faulty lead. Ignoring the connectivity issues the sound quality is ok but not as dramatic as i expected.

My boyfriend loved it, the sound is really amazing and it looks very nice as well. Just make sure you know what colour of the box it will be,as i thought i ordered in black, but i got a grey one, but looks really nice as well.

Samsung hw-e551 310w 2. 1 channel soundbar with active subwoofer review. A reasonable set up for what i needed at a reasonable price but the sound quality did not blow me away as some reviews led me to believe it would. After the experience of my old panasonic 5. 1 surround sound dvd system which it replaced, i was left a little disappointed with the 2. 1 sound and the lack of quality. Dont get me wrong, my samsung smart tv does sound measurably improved with this soundbar but could be a lot better. The huge sub-woofer unit must be placed next to the tv as it requires a wired connector. A good feature is the lyp-sync adjustment but the volume auto-leveler is hopeless. This is supposed to stop the volume going up when the adverts come on but the result is a constantly annoying subtle change in voice volume levels when watching a film so ended up turning this off. I would definitley advise anyone to go and listen to several systems before buying and do not trust reviews.

Invested in this after purchasing a new samsung led tvvery impressed with the sound quality. Switches on when tv is switched on and shuts down approx 20mins after tv switching off or you can switch it off. Various settings depending on what you are watching or listening too.

Perfect for projector system. Was well packaged straight forward to set up looks and sounds great. However this was bought for a projector set-up where the disc player and projector are all at the rear of the room. Which is where i placed the sub-woofer. No need to run cables to the front of the room where the main speakers are wirelessly connected beside the projector screen. Yet unobtrusive when the screen is away.
