Our take on the Samsung HW-F750

Time to unwind

Another work day done. You kick off your shoes, grab a favorite beverage from the fridge and settle into your couch, because your favorite TV show has just launched a new season online. You fire up Netflix® and turn up your new TV. As the music ramps up, the action scenes spill forth and the announcer intones, "Previously on..."

Except something's missing. The sound is only slightly better than that of your tablet's speakers. Your new TV looks awesome, but the manufacturer paid a harsh penalty for that ultra-thin look. Thin speakers generally lead to thin sound.

Two vacuum tubes give the Samsung HW-750 sound bar a vivid, realistic, and lifelike sound profile

Vacuum tubes in the preamp section add warmth to the sound of the 'F750.

Tube-powered realism

Fortunately, the fix is easy. You can get the thrill of powerful, accurate bass and crystal clear dialogue from the Samsung HW-F750, a unique-looking sound bar system with a 150-watt powered subwoofer. Its vacuum tube preamp section is coupled to a high-efficiency Class D amplifier for warm, realistic sound with movies, TV shows, and music. Plus, with the enhanced connection flexibility of both an HDMI input and output, this system is well-equipped to route high-quality video and audio where you need it. The 'F750 supports a recent implementation of the HDMI standard for features like Audio Return Channel, which enables two-way audio transmission over one cable, and Samsung's Anynet+™, which enables one-touch (and one-remote) control over all of your HDMI-connected Samsung components.

We really mean wireless

For increased convenience, your sound bar/subwoofer combo can pair wirelessly via Bluetooth® with a compatible Samsung HDTV using the SoundShare™ feature. The only wires leading to those components will be for AC power. And the Bluetooth connection allows streaming from compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops. How's that for a simple installation?

Connections are the key to success

Of course, the HW-F750 handles other connections as well. A built-in USB port hosts thumb drives and external disk drives with music files. An optical digital input can handle Blu-ray players, game consoles, or your Apple TV®. And there's a stereo analog 3.5mm input for your media player.

    Clean design, very pleased with performance.

    DL250 from Columbus, OH on 1/16/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Clean Design. Wall hung soundbar installation under a wall mounted 55" Samsung Smart TV results in a very clean, uncluttered design with minimum wiring exposure. Lots of features. Learning curve not too tough. Setup was very easy. I'm still experimenting with combinations that give the best audio results. BlueTooth is excellent for iphone, ipad, ipod music listening. Our TV room is about 11' x 12'. This soundbar and sub have plenty of power and adjustability for this size space. My wife was fed up with all of the speakers, cables, multiple remotes, and the rack of A/V equipment in the closet. All gone now. In our setup, the Cable/DVR and Blueray are remote so only the TV and soundbar grace the wall. Power and minimum optical and HDMI cables are concealed behind the tv, integrated in the wall mount. The Samsung universal TV remote controls everything*. (*except I haven't figured out how to control the soundbar volume yet). Don't buy it just for the cool Vacuum Tubes, buy it because is sounds great.

    Pros: Clean design. Simple setup. Plenty of power and frequency response. Features and settings to tweak and play with.

    Cons: Haven't figured out how to mate the TV universal remote to control the soundbar volume, yet. Price seemed a little high initially, but I have not heard or seen anything better in this price range.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I attached this speaker system to my large- screen, LCD, Samsung TV to enhance the sound and clarity of the spoken words. The improvement was amazing and well worth the cost. The Crutchfield technical team helped me ensure that I had the correct connection cable when I placed the order and provided easy to follow directions over the phone to assist me with the installation.

    Pros: Great sound system, easy to install, easy to use, doesn't take much space and looks good. Crutchfield technical team provides excellent technical support when placing the order to ensure I got all required connection gear and when I installed the speaker system

    excellent value when purchased with smart tv.. easy install...great sound

    Pros: great edition where surround set up aesthetically difficult

    Cons: initially confusing remote

    Fantastic Sound

    Mikek from Gainesville, FL on 8/6/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Anyone with a LED TV knows that the sound quality of the built-in speakres to be very low. The Samsung HW-F750 solves that problem. The rich sound and bass is very impressive! It provides a completely different viewing experience. Set up takes but a few minutes. The wireless conection to the TV by bluetooth does not lessen the sound quality.

    Pros: Fast setup and can be easily configured with remote control to turn on and off with the TV. In fact, you don't have to have it configured to turn on when the TV is turned on. The low profile nicely fits the low stand height of our smart tv. Bottom line is that the sound is awsome! We are happy campers!

    Cons: Fo the price, this is pricey purchase. However, we purchased the sound bar as part of a Smart TV bundle package which saved us about $350. Not sure if the use of vacuum tubes truly increases sound quality. I wonder how long these tubes will last before having to be replaced?

    The sound from this unit is fantastic, very happy with it.




    Milton from Salisbury, NC on 8/2/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My 50" Samsung TV needed a boost in sound quality, but this was not the answer. The sub was defective and made a buzzing sound, so I was unable to even tell if the soundstage improved over the TV speakers. I sent it back and I am running the TV sound through a high end stereo system.


    Cons: Quality lacking in the sub woofer. Cheap finish and defective speaker.

    Product Research



    Crystal Surround AirTrack (Active Speaker System): The Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System is a 2.1-channel audio system that lets you experience a rich, powerful virtual surround sound from just two speakers (Audiobar & Wireless Powered Sub). The slim, compact Samsung HW-F750's Audiobar can be mounted on the wall or placed on a table-top, while the wireless subwoofer can be positioned anywhere in the room to achieve maximum audio performance.

    AudioBar: The Audiobar is a self-powered, two-channel speaker which provides enveloping virtual surround sound from a single speaker. The AudioBar includes two 1" soft-dome tweeter and four 3.5"x1.5" midrange drivers housed in an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure. The Audiobar features a built-in 80 watts x 2-channel digital amplifier to drive its speakers. The AudioBar is designed to be mounted directly below or above your flat-panel HDTV in a horizontal orientation. The AudioBar can be placed on a shelf or table-top. The Audiobar also includes a wall-mount bracket which allows you to fix the speaker to your wall. The Audiobar includes analog audio and digital audio/video connections, as well as Bluetooth connectivity.

    Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The wireless powered subwoofer receives its low-frequency audio signal wirelessly from the AudioBar via 2.4GHz transmission. There are no cords to connect, except the AC power cord. You can place the wireless powered subwoofer up to 33' away from the AudioBar. The wireless powered subwoofer features a rear-firing 6.5" woofer inside a bass-reflex cabinet with a rear-firing port. The woofer is powered by a built-in 150 watt amplifier.

    Vacuum Tube & Digital Sound Technology: The HW-F750's Audiobar employs Vacuum Tube & Digital Sound Technology with two visible front-panel tubes. Enjoy a more lifelike experience with Vacuum Tube & Digital Sound. Hear your favorite music for the first time with the innovation of analog & digital sound combined. It creates a truer, more immersive sound that digital alone cannot replicate.

    Auto Sound Calibration: The Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System's auto sound calibration & mic can easily optimize your sound experience by automatically adjusting audio settings based on the distance from the audiobar and powered sub to the listening area in your room.

    Surround Sound Decoding: The Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System employs decoders compatible with Dolby Digital, DTS,  SFE, and 3D Depth Sound.

    • Dolby Digital: This is the standard audio signal format used on DVDs, and other purely digital media. This surround technology delivers high-quality digital audio of up to 5.1 discrete channels to produce a directional and more realistic effect.
    • DTS: DTS provides a discrete 5.1 channel digital audio signal for both music and movie content and uses less compression than Dolby Digital for richer sound.
    • SFE (Sound Field Effect): Using a 32-bit audio digital signal processor the HW-F750 provides a more realistic surround sound with normal stereo audio source. The Samsung HW-F750 offers 7 different sound field modes (News, Drama, Sports, Game, Cinema, Music, and Off/Original Sound).
    • 3D Sound: Complement the images you see on screen with the full sound of 3D Sound. By analyzing the depth of the 3D image, 3D Sound synchronizes the sound to match the motion and depth of the image. Now you can enjoy a fully immersive 3D experience.


    Audio Settings: The Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack system provides various audio adjustments to customize your listening experience.

    • Smart Volume: This function will regulate and stabilize the volume level against a drastic volume change in case of a channel change or scene transition.
    • 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.
    • DRC: You can use the DRC (Dynamic Range Compression) function to enjoy Dolby Digital sound when watching movies at low volume during the night. DRC compresses the audio to make the loudest sounds quieter and the quietest sounds louder.
    • Subwoofer Level: You can independently adjust the volume of the wireless powered subwoofer from -6 to +6, using the system's remote control.
    • Speaker Selection: This function enables you to select between listening to audio from your TV or audio from the AirTrack system when connected via HDMI.

    Remote Control: The included IR remote control provides wireless operation of the Samsung HW-F750 system and can also be used to control your connected Samsung TV. The remote control has a TV hotkey that enables you to perform various operations with the simple press of a button. You can adjust the volume or change the channel on the Samsung TV. Other unique Remote Control features include:

    • Smart On: When used with a 2013 Samsung LED-LCD or Plasma TV, you will be able to power on the AudioBar and control the volume right from the TV's remote.
    • Anynet+: Anynet+ is a convenient feature that offers linked operation with other Samsung components that have the Anynet+ feature, and lets you control those products with one Samsung remote control. To operate this function, you must connect Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System to an Anynet+ Samsung TV using an HDMI cable.

    Auto Power On/Off: The Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack system offers Auto Power On/Off functionality.

    • Power Link (Auto On): The Crystal Surround AirTrack system is automatically turned on when you turn on your TV or any device connected to the AirTrack  system with an optical cable.
    • Auto Off:  If a TV or any device connected to the Crystal Surround AirTrack System is off and there is no audio signal, the AirTrack system will turn off after 20 minutes.


    HDMI 1.4 Input/Output: The Audiobar of the Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System is fitted with an HDMI 1.4 input and HDMI 1.4 output. HDMI transmits video and audio signals simultaneously for a simpler connection, and provides a clearer picture and better sound. The unit's HDMI input and output support 3D-video, Deep Color, and x.v.Color pass-through. The HDMI output also supports ARC.

    • 3D: The HW-F750 can pass through 3D video from 3D-ready Blu-ray players to 3D-ready TVs, via HDMI (1.4). You will also need compatible 3D-ready glasses and 3D-video content.
    • Deep/x.v.Color: Deep Color allows more accurate color reproduction with deep color depth. The unit also supports x.v.Color; meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs, such as AVCHD discs (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format).
    • ARC: The unit's HDMI output also supports the ARC function. This allows you to connect your Blu-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box directly to the system's HDMI input and connect the system's HDMI output to your television for audio from the Crystal Surround AirTrack System or your TV. Your TV must also be ARC compatible.

    Bluetooth Technology: The Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack System features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming and Samsung's new Sound Share TV connection.

    • Bluetooth A2DP: You can wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or MP3 player to the Samsung HW-F750 and enjoy music with high quality stereo sound, all without wires. The HW-F750 does  not control your Bluetooth-enabled device; you will continue to control your music from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or MP3 player.  Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Samsung HW-F750 .
    • Sound Share: You can simplify the installation of the HW-F750 by eliminating the need for a wired connection between a Bluetooth-enabled Samsung TV and the Audiobar. Simply plug the Audiobar and the subwoofer into AC power and follow the simple pairing instructions to wirelessly connect the AudioBar to select Bluetooth-enabled Samsung TVs. SoundShare is only available for select Samsung 3D TVs - 2013 LED Series 6400 or higher and PDP Series 5500 or higher; 2012 LED Series 6500 or higher and PDP Series 550 or higher.

    Analog + Digital Inputs: The Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System features both analog (3.5mm) and digital (optical) audio inputs.

    • Optical Digital Input: The Samsung HW-F750 Crystal Surround AirTrack System's AudioBar is equipped with an optical (toslink) digital input to connect your television, Blu-ray/DVD player, or satellite/cable box.
    • AUX Input: The Samsung HW-F750 's AudioBar features a stereo audio minijack (3.5mm) input to connect your analog television or other analog audio component.

    USB Port: You can connect and play music files from external USB mass storage class devices (such as smartphones, MP3 players or USB thumbrives) using the AudioBar's USB (type-A) port and included USB extension cable. The HW-F750 supports USB devices formatted in FAT16/32 with MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, FLAC, or OGG music files. You can control basic playback functions; such as Play/Pause, Fast-Forward/Backward, Previous/Next Track, and Repeat/Random. The system will also charge (5V/0.5A) your connected USB device.

    Software Upgrades: Samsung may offer upgrades for the system's firmware in the future. Upgrades will be possible by downloading firmware upgrades to a USB thumbdrive and connecting the thumbdrive to the AudioBar's USB port.

    Hi Terry...The fact that the unit is Plasma should have no impact on the the operation of the sound bar....All contemporary TV's need help, and the F750 is a good choice [ ADRIAN  Jan 18, 2014 ]
    Yes!! It is a wonderful sound system. I highly recommend it. [ HOWARD R  Jan 17, 2014 ]
    It works great with my 55 in samsung smart tv,I'm sure it would work just as well with a 64 in [ KIRK  Jan 17, 2014 ]
    Yes [ COLIN  Jan 16, 2014 ]
    Hi, I bought this unit to use with my 55 inch smart tv and I'm very pleased with the sound it delivers. The only downside I could tell about it is the way the cables are connected to the soundbar (all inputs must be connected to it so you will have several cables getting into it). Besides that, the sound quality and volume is amazing. The BT capability to play music from my phone, tablet and laptop are very useful. Hope this helps in your decision [ LUIS J  Jan 16, 2014 ]
    Terry E, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. If you have a digital optical or HDMI output from your tv, you should be good to go. I think the digital optical will be the cleanest audio signal. There is also a mini audio input in the sound bar, but that is not ideal for best delivery of TV sound. No RCA jacks. This thing has lots of fun and useful features. The sound quality in our 11'x12' TV room is really good. I'm still experimenting with settings and am very pleased after 3 weeks of use. We have ours hung on wall below wall mounted TV. If your TV is sitting on a base, sit the sound bar in front of it, but don't block line-of-sight to the IR receiver, or the TV remote control won't function. [ David  Jan 16, 2014 ]
