     Gents   Been agonizing over a soundbar for a while and have narrowed it down to the above units. I have a budget of around $300. They are in range and all look good.   Any preferences? User experiences?   Cheers!

    ok so I've got the hw550 hooked up to my samsung 55" 9000 and I swear about every 5 seconds the sound changes and has a more hollow sound for about 1 second almost like its in a cycle and it's driving me nuts. sound effect is off, smart volume is on, 3d sound plus is off, does anyone have any...

     Hello everyone. I've seen quite a few threads about this model, but none have helped so far.   The problem is with the bass. It does work and it always has the blue light so it's not loosing connection, it's just not there when it should be.   I've read loads of reviews and pretty much all...

     Hi,   PLEASE HELP!!!    I need suggestions on which Sound Bars will actually work with the Fios Remote.   I bought a  Samsung HW-F550  and it sounded great, but I could not get it to pair with either of my FIOS Remotes (I have the two button and four button remotes).   I just bought a ...

    Ok, so I have a Samsung UN50F6800. HDMI 1 is labeled "STB" and should be used with my cable box. HDMI 2 is labeled "ARC" and I'm told that the HW-F550 should be connected to this input. Now, the HW-F550 has one HDMI input and one HDMI output. I'd like to connect the cable box to the HW-F550...

     I am new to all this fancy technology so forgive me if I use wrong terminology. I have everything 'working' but it's not the most ideal setup. I have the output from the uverse box hdmi to the input of the samsung soundbar. output from the soundbar to the arc hdmi port of the tv. This works...

    Due to space limitations I'm looking to a low-height sound bar than can sit below the Panasonic ZT60 on its stand without blocking the bottom of the TV or the IR sensor. The clearance between the stand and the bottom of the TV is 3.7 inches. I've been considering the Samsung HW-F550 but am...

     I'm looking at that the Samsung HW-F550/ZC :  http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=232_1094&item_id=057602 .   It says it features "3D sound plus" what ever that is. Will it be wise to get this feature with my Samsung 3D TV?   Another Sound Bar I'm looking at is: ...

     Hello everyone,   A total newbie here. I have a Samsung LN46B640 TV and just bought a Samsung soundbar HW-F550 and I cannot get any sound out of it. The tv goes silent when the soundbar is turned on and swiches to external speakers. I have the hdmi cable set as per the instructions. But I...

     Hi,   I setup a Sony STR-KS360 standard 5.1 receiver a few years ago, it has a small sound bar and speakers near the TV and back speakers wired in the wall and it's working fine.  I was offered a free Samsung HW-F550 Powered 2.1-channel home theater sound bar with wireless subwoofer and...

     Hi All,   I read a lot of interesting things on this forum and a lot of people are very helpful :) I hope you can be helpful for my issue.   I have a Samsung Smart TV D5520 (2 years old, still good TV I guess) and I never liked the speakers of the TV, they are quite crappy with too much...

    I'm hoping someone knows this because trying to figure it out is taxing. I read a Vizio manual "Quick Start" and one of the first steps is to use the remote control to power it on. So that one is out. My home subwoofer has a mode where it will automatically turn on/off as it detects a signal...

    Hi, I want to get a better sound than the TV speakers. I usually watch drama/comedy movies, every now and then an action movie. I can't get a proper 5.1 system, since the sofa is in line with the wall (plus don't want wires/cluttered wall). I was looking at a 2.1 or 3.1 system. I don't...

    I have a size limitation issue so therefore I want a higher end soundbar. I have had no luck finding all 3 of the threads requirements. Wireless & Bluetooth seem easy enough to find. But, no am/fm tuner!! Now, if I need to add a tuner to the soundbar. How & what Tuner can/should I buy??? I am...

    Recently, the wireless subwoofer for my Samsung hw-f550 audio bar keeps disconnecting. I unplug it and plug it back in and it reconnects for an hour or so and then it disconnects again. I haven't been able to identify what might be causing the issue. My tv is a Samsung pn5185000 and the sound...

    Hi All, Looks like a lot of issues with Samsung and ARC, here is mine: TV: Samsung UN46F6300 Soundbar: Samsung HW-F550 When I connect like the manual indicates (Cable box HDMI >F550 HDMI in) and (F550 HDMI out > TV HDMI ARC) the F550 does turn on and off with the TV and I see a graphic...

    Equipment: TV - UN55ES7150 Soundbar - HW-F550 I've read in the manual along with Samsung's website that I can control both devices with one remote (ideally the Samsung TV remote). This means that I should be able to turn the soundbar on, control volume, turn power off on the soundbar using...

    Another one who has an ARC issue, I have this hooked up to a new Samsung 46F6400 and both have Anynet turned on and tv speakers off. My Directv feeds the soundbar HDMI in and the soundbar in turn feeds the tv's HDMI 2 (ARC) input. I can get it to work but when powering down and then turning...

    I had pIanned to buy this model soundbar, but a motivated salesman persuaded me to buy the also new, same priced Samsung HW-F550 @ $400. I liked that it didn't have a "receiver" like the Panasonic, but I am just now realizing the switching limitations, i.e. HDMI vs. optical. I have a HD cable...
