LAS VEGAS--A ton of inexpensive, decent sound bars came out in 2010, but for the most part they lacked HDMI inputs, forcing you to make separate audio/video connections or use your TV as a switcher. Samsung's HW-D550 is an update to last year's HW-C450 , with the big improvement coming in the form of two HDMI inputs. Even better, both inputs support both 3D video passthrough and ARC .

The rest of the 46-inch sound bar features are standard, including a wireless subwoofer, virtual surround sound mode, and 310 watts of total power. Samsung also includes a wall-mount bracket with the HW-D550 as well.

Samsung hasn't announced pricing and says the HW-D550 will be out in the first half of 2011.
