If you do have regrets, what soundbar would you have preferred at this price (around $330)?
I do not regret getting the 550W. I use it in a room dedicated to a projector with an Xbox and PS3 attached. The sound is great and can be really loud. I do have the CT150 as well in our living room. I think the 150 probably handles dialog better, but by only a small margin. A lot of blu players and TVs have dialog "enhancement" settings to compensate. I love the break-out box and wireless sub on the 550, and those were essential to my setup (projector and consoles are above and behind where I sit). I'd recommend getting it home and trying it out, I doubt you'll return it.
If you do, though, perhaps one of the Samsung sound bars would be better for music specifically, especially the one with Bluetooth. Although I'm not complaining, Bluetooth would be a cool bonus to have. I make up for that by having AirPlay-enabled devices in most of the house
