I picked this up almost 2 years ago along with the Samsung’s SWA-W700 sub and then added on the associated rear surround speakers. Still really love the sound this bar produces especially watching BR movies but believe me it cranks the tunes as well! The price referenced here is also awesome but you definitely have a ton of options to choose from.
Here are a few comments from Mark Henninger's review August 2017, enjoy your evaluations but I am still very very pleased with this unit.
This model incorporates a total of 11 drivers, each with its own amp. Bass comes from an array of six mid-woofers that complement five wideband tweeters, two of which face upward. Frequency response for the HW-MS750 is specified from 35 Hz to 20 kHz without the optional subwoofer.
The HW-MS750 offers plenty of connectivity options. It supports the ubiquitous TosLink (optical digital) connection that’s popular for connecting TVs to soundbars. It’s also able to receive sound from your TV using an ARC-compatible HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 output. Plus, this soundbar provides two HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 inputs, with full support for HDR and up to 60 Hz 4:2:0 or 30 Hz 4:4:4 4K video.
It’s designed to work on its own or in conjunction with optional accessories that expand its capabilities. For example, you can add Samsung’s SWA-9000S wireless surround speakers ($180/pair) to the MS750 for an enveloping surround-sound experience. And of course, it also works with the SWA-W700 wireless subwoofer.
Samsung’s HW-MS750 decodes Dolby Digital, DTS, PCM, and a variety of audio-only formats: AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, and WMA.
Playing UHD Blu-rays of various movies using the DTS-HD Master Audio multichannel soundtrack (unprocessed bitstream) worked fine. Similarly, converting that audio to PCM in the player still worked perfectly—no missing dialog or other odd behavior.
This is a large soundbar designed to go with big-screen TVs. The HW-MS750 weighs 13.88 pounds and measures 45.28″ W x 3.07″ H x 5.14″ D. The chassis and grill have an understated, sophisticated, modern minimalist look with a logo-free black metal mesh grill that covers the entire front and top of the unit.
