Samsung 2.1-Channel Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This sleek sound bar provides more detail and power than the audio produced by your TV’s speakers, helping elevate your home’s entire soundscape. The device makes action movies and whisper-filled dramas more immersive to watch, but its Bluetooth capability also makes it possible to listen to podcasts while cleaning or to pump out tunes at a party.
Detailed Sound, Minimal Clutter
The 2.1-channel setup elevates your TV’s audio to give you an experience that’s closer to that of surround sound. Laterally placed speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. The subwoofer intensifies the effect by adding rumbly low notes that most TVs’ built-in speakers can’t match. With only two components to install, the 2.1-channel setup strikes a much cleaner look than full-blown home theater systems.
Dolby Digital helps you feel the passion in an actor’s voice, the beat of a song, and the gravity of a video game’s final battle. It enhances everything from movies to MP3s by elevating what you’re most likely to hear, such as heated dialogue or an ominous door closing, while suppressing static and other background noise. The result is clear digital sound in everything from home theater systems to wireless headphones.
Wireless Subwoofer: Deep Bass, Flexible Location
The subwoofer heightens the drama of movies and TV shows by sending the thud of footsteps or the roll of thunder rumbling around the room. Its wireless connectivity and single power cord mean it won’t contribute to unsightly cable nests. As an active subwoofer, it contains its own speaker driver and amplifier, which results in bigger, more room-filling sound than that from a passive model.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. Moreover, Bluetooth plays your favorite songs over the system’s speakers, filling the room with richer sound than most smartphones, tablets, or laptops can.

In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy: to help build a “better global society.”
