    Samsung WAM5500/ZA reviews

    Radiant360 R5 Wireless Speaker (Dark Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sound system troubles I purchased 3 radiant 360 speakers plus the sound bar. I spent almost as much money on the sound system as the 65 in TV. The app. that sets up and controls the sound system is inadequate. I can not get all 3 speakers to function at the same time. Maybe they are not designed to function at the same time. I printed the 150 page samsung manuals to try and learn how to make the sound system function. Surround sound with the sound bar and 2 radiant speakers is muffled/not clear. I can get 2 radiant speakers to work and I like the sound. I just can't get all the speakers to function at the same time which is a waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room Filling Sound I have an R1 and was very happy with it. Thought I would try out the bigger R5 and have not been disappointed! Even with the volume down almost as low as it can go, the R5 gives me great listening throughout our entire first floor, with clear sound. The MultiRoom app is very easy to use for the multiple speakers, with my wife listening to something downstairs while she sews while I have other things playing upstairs. Very simple to set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds my expectations The 360 R5 is a great speaker that gives off marvelous sounds no matter where you are sitting or standing. I have 2 of these connected to my hw-k950/za and now everyone wants to come over to my house to watch games or movies because the sounds and the feel are so amazing. They are not cheap but if you want the best sounding surround speakers, you have to pay for them. Well worth the money in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound This speaker has a very rich and encompassing sound. I put it in the living room which connectshould via sound share to the TV and my music apps. Very happy with the design and features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality but hard to program One of the best innovations but difficult to program, You have buy a Samsung Hub if you want to connect to other speakers by Samsung. That should be made clear prior to purchasing. The hub was cheap and I wanted the same channel on other speakers so paid $15 for the hub. The App is not intuitive. It is a relearning process each time I use it but I love the quality and portability? Low scare because it is expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker!! I bought this speaker as a starter for my entertainment center. It has the ability to connect 3 ways from Bluetooth to WiFi and even TV sound connect through my Samsung tv! So no matter whether I'm on my computer or phone listening to music or watching a movie, I can use the same speaker for it all! Very nice design and sound

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible It makes me sad to write my first review of a product in my 40 years of life. Amazing how with as many degrees I have in science and engineering, I spent 4 hrs trying to get this thing to work and I can't even get BlueTooth to go. It's crazy how non-user friendly this thing is. I thought I was buying a wireless speaker for my laptop and phone. And it's so expensive given what it does not do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Radiant 360 R5 Don't like SONOS. No Bluetooth, too expensive. Like Bose, which always sounds great, but also too expensive. But LOVE my Samsung Radiant 360 R5. Perfect companion to my 55" 4K 3D Samsung Smart TV. Liked it so much, bought one as a test, then another for a pair. Will also buy soundbar that I can add these to with the Samsung Multi-Room app, which is also phenomenal.
