Ah, you’ve decided to grace your living room with a sleek Samsung TV—talk about setting the gold standard in home entertainment! With crisp visuals that pop out at you and audio capabilities that have “oomph,” Samsung is often the go-to name for those who refuse to settle for anything less than extraordinary. But let’s talk about that extra layer of sonic bliss that can make your favorite action film feel like a live event and turn your home into a makeshift concert hall: a soundbar.

This slim, unassuming piece of tech is the Robin to your TV’s Batman. Offering an expansive audio landscape—from the kind of bass that sends shivers down your spine to top notes as smooth as a jazz saxophonist’s riff—a soundbar isn’t just an accessory; it’s an experience. Plus, with its streamlined design, it can either fade into the background like the humble hero it is, or take center stage, adding a modern touch to your TV setup.

Whether you’re looking to use it as a standalone piece or integrate it into a more elaborate sound system, a soundbar is more than worth the investment. So, stick around as we guide you through the ins and outs of connecting your Samsung TV to a soundbar, and get ready for an auditory experience that’s nothing short of spectacular.

Connecting a soundbar to your Samsung TV couldn’t be easier. There are several ways to complete your setup, but the recommended way to go is via the highly efficient HDMI cable. Newer models frequently offer a wireless Bluetooth connection.

  • Upon opening the carton, check that everything is in there, including the all-important HDMI cable

  • Take the other end and plug it into the TV’s corresponding port

  • Plug the TV back into the wall outlet
  • Select > HDMI on your TVs remote control and choose > input
