Samsung’s entry-level LED TV models have already started showing up online, however if you also want top-notch sound quality with your Samsung HDTV you’d better take a look at these two new sound bars coming this Spring.
Samsung has proudly showcased these two sound bars back in January at the CES but hasn’t released too many details about them. We now know that these two have been dubbed HT-E8200, coming with 3D Blu-Ray playback, Smart TV features and a wireless subwoofer, while the lower end model is called HW-E550 and can be split in two and mounted on both sides of your HDTV.
Samsung HT-E8200 Sound Bar
The Samsung E8200 sound bar is the superior model of the two and has been made to complement HDTVs stating at 46-inches in screen size. The HT-E8200 is pretty nice looking and comes in a black plastic casing and glossy finish.
You’ll be able to enjoy and immersive and powerful sound experience and can let out 400W of power aided by a wireless subwoofer that you can place wherever you want.
What’s special about the HT-E8200 sound bar is that it comes with 3D Blu-Ray playback and Smart TV capabilities. Instead of opting for a new Blu-Ray player this year, you could just get the HT-E8200 and enjoy pretty much the same features coming in a slim package, that perfectly complements you large screen display.
The Smart TV platform includes Smart Hub and Samsung apps and there’s the AllShare feature that can help you push any media from your smartphone or tablet to the HT-E8200 sound bar and enjoy it on the flat screen.
The Samsung HT-E8200 sound bar comes with two HDMI ports for connectivity and ARC (audio return channel) that enables users to control the volume using their HDTV’s remote control.
Samsung HW-E550 Sound Bar
The second sound bar coming from Samsung has been dubbed HW-E550 and is much more about sound than anything else. Samsung has designed the HW-E550 so that you’d be able to mount it horizontally on your wall or vertically, on both sides of your screen.
You’ll get everything you need so you can mount this one comfortably on your wall. The HW-E550 sound bar has been equipped with Bluetooth that enables you to push media from handheld devices directly to your own Samsung sound bar, while connectivity options include and USB port and two HDMI inputs.
This one also gets an wireless subwoofer that you can place anywhere you want without worrying about wires coming in and out of your sound bar all over the place.
These two new sound bars will become available in the Spring, most likely, after all the displays in Samsung’s 2012 line-up. No pricing information has been released at this time.
