Hi Guys,

 

Wishing to downsize the Audio for AV "Smallish House", I decided a Soundbar would be the way to go but I want good sound for Music / and AV. I have a Samsung TV so after looking at what was available in the market Sonos / Bose, Sony etc. and reading online I decided on the Samsung HW-MS650 the 750 that has upward firing speakers doesn't seem to be sold in New Zealand.

 

Results, really happy great price $719.00 and upgradeable to Wireless Surround SWA-9000S + Wireless Sub  SWA-W700 when / hopefully they are bought in. 

 

Nine speakers all each with their own discrete amps plus a DSP to conduct the orchestra. 

 

Anyway just have the HW-MS650 at the moment had its pretty good actually amazing for the price.  

 

if your in the market seriously have a look, defiantly as good as much more expensive options and you can save a few dollars.

Hi Stu1,

 

Ditto on the 300 or sonos, I looked at integration and inputs and wanted HDMI (ARC) capability as I have all my devices going into the TV and using HDMI to the HW-MS650.

 

This added to really positive reviews from multiple sources re sound quality plus the ability to extend the system into a 5.1 setup over time, and finally the price the bang for your buck is impressive.

 

A couple of reviews

Forgot to add other than a WiFi glitch on initial setup required a reboot it was a really easy setup. And it's been solid since no issues at all.
