Recommend next components of my home entertainment system

I have a Samsung Smart HD 3D TV (UN 46F6400), a Samsung 3D Blu-Ray Player (BD-H5900), an HD Comcast Cable Box, a MacBook Air running OS X El Capitan, and an iPhone 5s. I am looking for improved sound to my TV and Blu-Ray and for playing music from my iPhone or Mac. I would like to spend no more than $300. I bought an LG SH7B soundbar, but my TV kept bouncing back to "TV Speakers" from "Receiver" in the Sound Menu every time I turned the system on. I tried all different configurations including a Logitech Harmony Universal Remote, and was still unable to turn my soundbar and TV on with the push of one button. The LG was returned because I feel my Samsung TV is only going to give me the convenience of seamless integration with a Samsung audio product. I am open to any advice on equipment for sound with the easiest access possible.
