About the Samsung HW-LST70T "The Terrace"
Better sound for your outdoor TV
Samsung's bright and beautiful "The Terrace" TV was an exciting addition to our outdoor TV lineup. But if you want to enjoy top-notch audio quality to match that stunning 4K QLED picture, we suggest pairing it with this matching HW-LST70T sound bar.
Take your movie nights outside with Samsung's "The Terrace" sound bar and TV (sold separately).
Like "The Terrace" TV, the bar is built to withstand extreme temperatures, as well as water and dust. But the bar is also designed and tuned to sound better in those open outdoor spaces, too. Wide-range tweeters and built-in woofers provide a soundstage that is deep and wide, while the dedicated center channel delivers clear dialogue.
Simple to connect
The HW-LST70T comes with the mounting hardware you need to attach it either to your wall or neatly below "The Terrace" TV. Plus, if you're pairing it with "The Terrace," you won't even need the included optical cable because the two can connect using either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for a super-clean look.
When I'm outside, I'm nearly always enjoying some tunes on a portable speaker. Well, there's no need to worry about charging up and toting out your little battery-powered speaker when you've got the HW-LST70T mounted on your porch or patio. It has Bluetooth built in, so you can easily stream music wirelessly from compatible devices.
