Samsung HW-H7500 Curved Soundbar Review

DSC01435

The Samsung HW-H7500 is a curved soundbar, yes.  A curved soundbar. One with enhanced looks and sound for your TV with the sleek, premium design of the Curved Soundbar. Its distinctive shape is designed to blend effortlessly into your curved TV. But its still looks striking with a regular HDTV,; with the HW-H7500 you have also got convenient connections  with the ability to turn on your Soundbar with Bluetooth Power On. If you want to stream music from your portable Bluetooth device, simply select the Soundbar for pairing and it will automatically power on and begin playing. Advanced audio processing that decodes the DTS stream, then mixes down and outputs 2-channel audio, to be played back via stereo speakers. Digital Out means the device can also output the DTS bitstream via digital outputs (S/PDIF or HDMI) to a receiver to decode DTS audio. So whats the sound quality like, does the curved nature improve the sound?

Not sure if it does, but I can tell you it sounds spectacular., the audio quality emanating from the HW-H7500 is stellar, clean, smooth and rich. with great fidelity. The bass produced from the wireless sub-woofer is rich and deep with clarity to let you music and sounds breath with have weight and power to them. I really can’t say anything bad about this sound bar,, its stylish with rich sound, crisp audio and clear audio fidelity. Priced at $599 it maybe expensive for some, but its worth every penny.
