REVIEW: Samsung HW-MS750 Soundbar

RM3500 Cinema Hero We’re a bit out of our depths here. Samsung was gracious enough to lend us their flagship soundbar for a week for us to test in the comforts of our own home, and needless to say we were blown away by the clear, room filling sound with rich, deep bass that came out from a seemingly unassuming metal bar. We delve into why you should seriously consider Samsung’s new flagship instead of a full blown hi-fi system. So what is it? In essence, the Soundbar is your all-in-one solution for a 5.1 surround sound system with...
