Simple System with Sophisticated Sound
Samsung's Virtual Surround delivers a sophisticated surround sound effect without the clutter of additional speakers and tangled wires. Utilizing just two stereo speakers, your ears will barely be able to distinguish Virtual Surround's efficient, powerful 2.1 channel system from larger, more complex 5.1 and 7.1 channel systems. This makes it a perfect way to enjoy your favorite movies and music artists
3D Sound Plus
3D Sound Plus affords a total 3D audio experience with the addition of 3D sound to your 3D viewing environment. 3D Sound Plus sound processing technology combines 3D Depth Sound, Vertical Surround and Horizontal Surround, to deliver a more realistic 3D experience for a truly heart-pounding, immersive adventure
Crystal Amplifier Plus
Samsung's proprietary digital amplifier technology, Crystal Amplifier Plus, delivers HD quality sound to your 3D experience. This innovative technology was designed to filter sound sources twice to minimize distortion and produce crystal-clear sound. With Crystal Amplifier Plus, everything you hear sounds exactly the way it was meant to be heard

      The title pretty well sums this soundbar up. I needed something to improve the quality of my Samsung LED set (which was awful), but didn't want a full 6.1 system (nor did my neighbors). The quality brought my set up to where I would expect any half decent TV to be, but I can't say I hear any simulated surround effect or even much stereo sound. The bar has some options for tweaking, but very limited. Most frustrating is the fact that although both products are Samsung, there is now way to control both with one remote. The bar has some TV functions, but only the bare minimum. I am also unable to use my TiVo remote to control the bar since none of the codes work and the remote is unable to learn the Samsung codes. So, I'm stuck with an additional remote lying around.

        Sets up easily and works great with Samsung TV. Sub isn't quite as powerful as I would like, but is fine when the volume is turned up.

        Comments about Samsung HW-E450 Soundbar & Subwoofer Speaker System:

        This is my first sound bar so there is no other sound bar to which to compare this. There are about six different effect settings you access through the remote. Only the Cinema setting results in a sound that is noticeably different than the sound coming from the TV speakers (Panasonic Viera 47" LCD). I gave it two stars because set up was so simple. I don't want to go through the hassle of sending back - otherwise I would return it.

          So far this soundbar has been a great addition to my bedroom.. Keep in mind this is not a 5.1 Chanel sound system. The audio is very good considering the small package...

              I use this with a Samsung led tv and it was part of the package. Unit looks nice and works well. You cannot use the Direct TV remote with it so you have to use two remotes. And the remote is way too small. Oh well...

              This has good sound for the price range of sound systems that it fits in. That is why I rated it four stars. Don't compare this to units costing 5 -10 times as much.

              If superb sound is impt to you...spend the money, get the most expensive Bose system they make.

              Disappointed with the 60Hz or 120Hz hum especially noticable during silent segments/passages. If not for that it would rate much higher.
