ICON Loading...

A versatile, modern design makes this AirTrack a true standout.

A unique convertible design is the highlight of the Samsung HW-E551 Home Theater. Twin towers can be paired together standing up like traditional speakers or wall-mounted, or joined to form a complete AudioBar which can sit on a TV stand or can be wall-mounted; either way, they’re designed to perfectly match the width of your 46" Samsung HDTV. Completing the picture: a wireless subwoofer, which delivers tight, thundering bass for every show and movie.

  • newegg Split Design The Sound Bar system combines innovative audio technology into a slim design. Place the Sound Bar under your TV as one unit, or separate into two parts for greater placement flexibility. Mount it on the wall, or place it on an entertainment center. The slim shape helps save space wherever you install it, naturally complementing your Samsung TV.
  • newegg Wireless Active Subwoofer Feel the power of tight, thundering bass when you’re watching a movie, show or concert.
  • newegg 3D Sound Plus Compliment the images you see on screen with the full sound of 3D Sound Plus. By analyzing the depth of the 3D image, 3D Sound Plus synchronizes the sound to match the motion and depth of the image. Now you can enjoy a fully immersive 3D experience.
  • newegg HDMI Connectivity Get superior picture and sound from your HD source. The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a digital connection that can transmit HD video and audio over a single cable. Use it to optimize the image quality when you connect your TV to high-definition sources such as HD cable TV, satellite receiver, or Blu-ray player. It also features CEC capability, so you can use a remote control handset.
  • newegg Bluetooth Bluetooth technology offers wireless connectivity for streaming from your mobile device; smartphone, tablet, music player etc.

3 out of 5 eggsgood sound, system so-so

Pros: Nice smooth powerful base headroom and treble clarity - good built in equalizer settings - drama/cinema/music/etc...

Cons: Not fully integrated system with Samsung TV's - bummer

Other Thoughts: I bought this soundbar to go with a Samsung 55" 7100 Smart TV thinking I would get good seamless synch, but no: 1. Hook up in the directions-preferred method using HDMI ARC cables and the TV remote will cut the soundbar off, BUT NOT ON... 2. So, OK, replace the HDMI cable and hook it up with optical cable and viola, it will cut both systems on and off with the TV remote, BUT IT DISABLES THE REMOTE VOLUME AND MUTE BUTTONS... bummer.. it seems Samsung wants to force you to use 2 remotes. Dont bother surfing the net for workarounds or chatting with Samsung on their site, this is a bug and you must accept it buster.

5 out of 5 eggsniufootball64

Pros: I had listened to this sound system in a store, so wasn't surprised by the great sound...doesn't equal the 6 speaker surround system in the man cave, but then I didn't expect to get 6 speaker sound out of 2 speakers. For a living room dominated by a wife who didn't want speakers everywhere, this system is great.

Cons: I guess I didn't really understand that the wireless feature refers to the communication between the main speakers and the subwoofer. I assumed I could place the subwoofer anywhere in the room, but the sub must be connected via HDMI, FiberOptic, or Component to your TV, or DVD, or whatever. Consequently, it must be located fairly close to the TV. Conversely, you could place the main unit anywhere in the room, but I don't see any benefit in that. However, the sub sound rocks this room and I'm delighted with it.

Other Thoughts: Listened to a lot of soundbars prior to purchase. This was the best one, other than Bose, and has not disappointed. Make sure you order the 550 if you want all black, as the 551 has silver features and a silver sub. Also, purchase 2 HDMI cables.
