Questions & Answers for Samsung 2.1-Ch. Home Theater Soundbar Speaker System with Wireless Subwoofer

Question

Hookup to Samsung TV

Hello, I just purchased the Samsung Home Theatre Soundbar Speaker System. I currently have my Samsung 46 inch LCD TV mounted on the wall. Is it required that the TV be removed from the wall to install the Samsung Soundbar Speaker System? I have a Sony blue ray player. If you can please explain the proper way to hook up the soundbar to my current set-up. Please note that I do not have a receiver, just a blue ray player.

Thank you.

Thanks for the question. Since the Samsung SoundBars come with an on-board sound driver, a receiver is not needed. All you will need to do is connect your TV to the SoundBar via either a Red/White RCA to 3.5mm jack cable or an optical cable. In that sense, you may need to move the TV slightly so that you can connect the wires properly. However, once connected, all you will need to do is mount the SoundBar on the wall (the SoundBar does not directly connect to the TV for mounting purposes). Also, assuming you already have your BD player connected to your TV, the sound will travel from your BD player, to the TV then to the SoundBar via the previously connected cables.

We do not get information about the pricing of products. There may have been a sale on this item or a manufacturer incentive.

Question

Working with another receiver?

I have a 5.1 surround system, but I was hoping this could replace the center, left and right speakers. Is it possible to connect this to a 5.1 surround sound system so I can continue using my subwoofer and back channel speakers?

Thanks for the question. Since the SoundBar offers its own built-in audio driver, there will not be a way to connect this device to a receiver to act as the receiver's front speakers. You can still connect it up to the receiver through the Optical or Analogue connections, but by doing this, all of the audio will be transmitted to the SoundBar, not just the front audio. There are no actual speaker wire connections on this unit to allow it to act as a front speaker array.

Thanks for the question. Although the Samsung TVs offer the Sound Leveling feature that adjusts the volume of all content to equal levels, preventing volume spikes; the SoundBars, along with many other sound drivers, do not offer this feature. the SoundBars are designed to play incoming content the way the originating device transmitted the signal. If the originating device does not offer volume leveling, the SoundBar will not offer it either.

Thanks for the question. Since the RCA red/white and Optical audio outputs on the Samsung TVs are a fixed pass through type of connection, the TV has no control over the volume of the sound that leaves these outputs. That said, you can turn the volume all the way down or turn off the speakers on the TV and have the sound still work from an external speaker source directly connected to the TV.

Great question! You will most definitely be able to mount the SoundBar above the TV. The supplied wall mount will allow you to mount the unit either above or below the TV on a wall.

Due to the nature of the cross compatible connectors (3.5mm Composite, Optical), the Samsung SoundBar should work with almost all TVs that offer an optical output or RCA outputs for sound. There are no special converters or cables (besides the ones needed to connect between the devices) required.

Thanks for the question. From the information I have, it seems that the Dolby audio codecs are only supported via the optical cable. The analogue audio input does not support the Dolby digital standard which outputs the sound at 5.1.
