5.0 out of 5 stars >-- It's Behind You! ---<, 22 Dec. 2011

This review is from: Samsung HW-D450 Airtrack 2.1ch Home Cinema System (Electronics)
A very impressive piece of equipment. Sound technology is somewhat of a fine Art and the Boffins at Samsung do seem to know their 'stuff'

It comes in two main parts, the Sound Bar and the 'Wireless' Sub-Woofer. There are three ways of connecting it to a sound source: Fibre Optic cable, Phono (both supplied) and the option of plugging in a small Jack plug - perhaps for an MP3 player and/or other device.

I used the Fibre Optic cable and plugged it directly into the TV - not all TV's have this connection, however most do have the Phono type. The sound bar is plugged into a normal power socket and comes complete with its own remote control. The Sub-Woofer was discreetly placed behind the sofa and also plugged into the mains - as it is wireless there are, thankfully - no trailing cables!

The woofer is synced to the sound bar by pressing a small button (with an opened paper clip) for a few seconds until the connection is made. That is it! - the unit is now ready to Rock'n Roll :)

Turn on the Tv and the Sound Bar automatically turns on too, this is a configurable setting which can be adjusted by the Sound Bar Remote. Then choose the type of Sound you'd like to listen too, from Cinema, Music, Speech and more. There is also a 3D sound option! - I have no idea how it works but the phrase 'It's Behind You!' is very relevant. :)

My Word! When I turned it on the latest 'Transformer' movie was showing. Wow! The sound effects were mind blowingly realistic. Of course, sitting on the sofa (with the sub-woofer behind me) there was a fourth dimension = VIBRATION!!

THIS IS AN AMAZING PIECE OF KIT

There is one thing that you'll probably want to consider. If you have Sky the Sky Remote Control cannot be configured to adjust the volume on the Sound Bar, you will have to use the dedicated remote for this. However, if like me you don't like many remotes floating around; invest in an all-for-one remote, with a 'Learning' capability. This can be configured to control everything including the Sky Box, DVD, TV and Sound Bar.

In summary, if you like quality sound and appreciate the lack of trailing wires and speaker stands, then this is certainly one sound system to consider. It is awesome!
