3-Channel Soundbar: The Samsung HW-MS650 soundbar is a self-powered,
three-channel speaker with dedicated left, right, and center channels to provide
enveloping virtual surround sound from a single speaker. Each channel consists
of a tweeter and two woofers for a total of three tweeters and six woofers (9
total drivers) - all housed in an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure. Tested and tuned at the renowned Samsung California Audio
Lab, Samsung audio
engineers applied new methods of transduction and advanced computer modeling to
give you perfectly balanced, room-filling sound.
Samsung Audio Technologies: The HW-MS650 active soundbar speaker
utilizes a variety of Samsung audio technologies to deliver rich, room-filling
home theater sound without the need for a separate subwoofer.
- Wide Range Tweeters: Hear consistently great sound anywhere in the room with tweeters
that cover a much wider frequency range.
- Long Excursion: Enjoy truly deep bass with technology
that increases the depth of speaker movement to provide big sound.
- Multi-Speaker Control: Multi-Speaker Control increases the power and depth of bass with control that precisely coordinates
the movement of each speaker.
- Distortion Cancelling Samsung's proprietary technology delivers deep and detailed bass by predicting
sound distortion and automatically tuning the speaker's output before the
Digital & Analog Audio Inputs: In addition to HDMI
connectivity, the Samsung HW-MS650 soundbar system features both digital
(optical) and analog (3.5mm) audio inputs.
- Optical Digital Input: The Samsung HW-MS650's soundbar
is equipped with an optical (toslink) digital input to connect your
television, Blu-ray/DVD player, or satellite/cable box. The optical digital
input supports Dolby Digital (5.1ch) & DTS (2ch). The optical digital output
of some flat-panel TVs only send a Dolby Digital audio signal when receiving
Dolby Digital surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network
connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch PCM from
sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blu-ray/DVD player
or satellite/cable box).
- Aux Input: The Samsung HW-MS650's soundbar also
features a stereo audio minijack (3.5mm) input to connect your analog
television or other analog audio component.
Note: To get the best audio performance out of the
Samsung HW-MS650, use the system's HDMI input and optical digital input to
connect your Blu-ray player and satellite/cable box. Then connect the
system's HDMI output to your TV's HDMI ARC input. By connecting your Blu-ray
player and satellite/cable box directly to the soundbar system, you'll gain
Dolby Digital/DTS decoding from these two sources.
Surround Sound Decoding: The Samsung HW-MS650 soundbar
system employs decoders compatible with Dolby Digital (5.1ch) & DTS (2ch), as
well as Samsung's proprietary surround & effect modes.
- Surround Sound Expansions: The Surround Sound Expansion
delivers a more realistic and immersive audio experience by adding depth and
spaciousness to the movie soundtrack.
- Smart Mode: Smart Mode automatically optimizes sound effects to
suit the scene currently playing.
- Sound Effects: Select from 5 different sound effects
modes (Standard, Music, Movie, Clear Voice, & Sports), depending on the type
of content you want to enjoy. The Clear Voice mode enhances hard to hear
dialog and vocals of a soundtrack.
- DRC (Dynamic Range Control): A Dolby Digital
soundtrack's dynamic range is compressed making it easier to hear at lower
Equalizer: You can adjust the system's Bass & Treble from -6
to +6. You can also adjust a 7-band EQ (150, 300, 600, 1.2k, 2.5k, 5.0k, 10.0k Hz) from -6 to
Optional Wireless Surround Kit: The optional SWA-9000S
Wireless Surround Kit (305SWA9KS,
sold separately) lets you add rear speakers to the HW-MS650 soundbar system without
all the wires. Together with the HW-MS650, you can create a 5 channel system
for a true surround sound experience. The SWA-9000S Wireless Surround Kit
consists of a wireless receiver module and two rear speakers. The wireless
receiver module receives a wireless audio signal from the HW-MS650 soundbar, so
you don't have to run speaker wire from the soundbar to the rear speakers. The
wireless receiver module does have to connect to an AC wall outlet via its power
cord and to the rear speakers via two
Optional Wireless Sub: Add Samsung's SWA-W700 wireless
powered sub (305SWA700,
sold separately) for powerful, ultra-deep bass performance down to 27Hz. The
SWA-W700 wirelessly pairs (up to 30') with the HW-MS650 soundbar, making it easy
an easy add-on. Seamless front and back, the SWA-W700 is simple and elegant,
with a timeless unibody design. The SWA-W700 houses a 10" rear-firing woofer.
USB Wireless Port: There is a USB (type-A) port which is for future
use with a Samsung wireless powered subwoofer (not yet available).
HDMI 2.0a: The Samsung HW-MS650 soundbar is fitted with one
HDMI 2.0a input and one HDMI 2.0a output (ARC compatible). The HDMI input allows
you to connect your Blu-ray player or cable/satellite box directly to the
soundbar and then from its HDMI ARC output to your flat-panel TV. The HDMI 2.0a
input and output support 4K and HDR video, HDCP 2.2, & 4:4:4 color subsampling.
4K + HDCP 2.2: The soundbar's HDMI 2.0a input and
output can pass 4K ultra-HD video, as well as 1080p, 1080i, 720p, and 480p
video. The soundbar's HDMI input and output
support HDCP 2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection
standard for 4K video transmission.
HDR 10 Compatible: The Samsung HW-MS650 is HDR 10
compatible. HDR (High Dynamic Range) video delivers dynamic 4K content in
exceptional quality with a greater range of color contrast and brightness,
enhancing details from the original film format. Experience sharp contrasts and
brightness with deeper blacks and brighter whites.
4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The Samsung HW-MS650 supports up to
4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of ultra high-definition
video (2160p @ 24/25/30Hz - 4:4:4 color sampling; 2160p @ 60/50Hz - 4:20:0 color
3D Ready: The HW-MS650 can pass-through 3D video (up to
3D-ready Blu-ray players to 3D-ready TVs, via HDMI. You will also need
compatible 3D-ready glasses and 3D-video content.
ARC: The unit's HDMI output also supports the ARC function.
This allows you to connect your Blu-ray player and satellite/cable box directly
to the system's HDMI inputs and connect the system's HDMI output to your
television for audio from the wireless audio soundbar system or your TV. Your TV
must also be ARC compatible.
Note: Because with some televisions, the ARC-enabled HDMI
input will only pass 2ch PCM from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or
analog, we recommend that you connect your Blu-ray/DVD player,
Satellite/Cable box, or Gaming console to the soundbar directly; and then
connect the soundbar's ARC-enabled HDMI output to your TV's ARC-enabled HDMI
input. This setup will give you with the best overall sound performance
AV Sync: AV Sync can be used to help sync video to audio
when connected to a digital HDTV. Video may look slower than the audio if it is
connected to a digital TV. If this occurs, you can adjust the audio delay time
to match the video. You can adjust the AV Sync from 0 to 300ms.
