Pros and Cons
Pros4

Better than glorified tv speakers! I'm an audiophile (sound snob) this affordable soundbar offers great fidelity and crisp audio.

Full, dynamic, multi-layered, sound stage and i am pleased far beyond expected. Even my hubs is impressed. At 60% to 70% volume level it gets plenty loud for a small to medium sized room.

Low profile- streamlined cord placement. Stereo sound does a good job at delivering a soundstage front and center. Only down side is the insanely short optical cable they send you!

With virtual-x on, sound is really immersive and 3d. The only con i have is that the dolby atmos is almost non-existent. Only issue i've had so far is with the bluetooth connectivity.

Cons4

It's counter intuitive and clumsy. What's the point then? The other thing is that this thing smells.

There’s noticeable low end from the sub (compared to the h9g speakers) but it sounds cheap. The subwoofer is just not good enough to really convey any real low end feel.

They ask you to reboot and reconnect the same a wires multiple times on each call. Terrible lip sync delay with hdmi arc connection.

The box came severely damaged on the first one and the second one too. Only thing i can do is return this second one for a full refund.

Pros2

You're not going to rattle the rafters with it. Sound clarity is very good, and that's what we needed for our old ears.

The s60a handily eclipses the denon 216, polk signa s2 and sony htx 8500. It's still not atmos, but it outperforms the sony 8500, which does support atmos. A great example of exemplary customer service.

Cons5

Sonos allows ok google to interrupt arc signal interrupts google assistant playback. Wont pair with brand new samsung tv. When i ask alexa to play music from spotify, it says this device does not support spotify playback, and yet i can play music if i...  Read More

Used new batteries, tried taking batteries out of the handset, power off/on etc. Didn't work at all most of the time. It is especially annoying when you usually turn your computer on at 5 am for work and everyone in the house was sleeping.

It fails on the registration after spinning for 2 minutes. Everything inside had been opened and then tossed back in except the remote. Ended up having to pry the case to slide it off.

I am supremely underwhelmed at the sound quality. It has decent sound quality, but about 6 months into having it im already starting to hear some distortion. My biggest complaint though are the volume and bluetooth settings.

Many of the samsung sound bars have this flaw. The only way to update firmware on the sound bar is with usb. The app is * - it's smartthings, takes time to get to the soundbar page, and also there is no widget. Seems similar issues occur on multiple s...  Read More
