CES 2013: Samsung HW-F751 tube-amplified sound bar: Totally tubular

CNET goes ears-on with Samsung's high-end TV speaker system -- is it worth your time?

-Hello, I'm Luke Westway for CNET, here at Samsung stand at CES 2013. I'm taking a look at the HW-F751 wireless sound bar. So, this is the wireless sound bar. As you can see underneath here, it comes with a wireless subwoofer as well. Samsung says it's designed to fit a 46-inch television perfectly; but of course, you can use it with anything else. It connects your TV using Samsung's SoundShare technology. Now the company tells me that that's a little bit like Bluetooth, but hopefully without the lag so when you're watching action on screen you should be synced up perfectly so you won't have any delay when people are speaking or in big action scenes. Something quite neat about this sound bar is that it has gotten an accelerometer in the middle, so it works on two planes. That means if I tilt the sound bar up, the speaker arrangement inside it will change to use different speakers based on which way the actual sound bar is pointing. The controls remain visible no matter what orientation you're using the sound bar in because this display on the front, when you tilt it up here, you can see it changes position which I think is quite a nice touch. As you can see in the middle here, this is a tube amplified system or valve amplified if you prefer. It's a bit hard to judge sound quality in this noisy environment here at the show, but it sounds quite promising. I can certainly tell you that it goes very loud. Fingers crossed that all the sound technology inside here makes for an excellent sound bar. There's no price yet but, it's quite a high end bit of kit, so if you do like the look of it, you'd best start saving now. It's gonna be coming out in the first half of 2013. I'm Luke Westway for CNET here at CES 2013, and this is Samsung HW-F751 sound bar.
