The soundbar comes with an attractive display. The top aluminum panel joins perfectly with the sandwiched slim-grey speaker mesh in the center. Depending on your Televisions color, you can opt for the black or silver models. The cabinet is solid and has an aluminum finishing which raises it above your standard budget soundbar. The bottom rubber pads keep off bothersome vibrations. Low key buttons feature on top and are not identifiable from distant. They include input selection, volume as well as power. When the LED screen illuminates the front mesh, clear details on the right input and levels of sound are shown. Keep in mind that the HW-J8500 covers Samsung’s curved Tv set up to 78 inches. It is definitely way bigger than any ordinary soundbar. Those who intend to put it on top of a TV stand should make plenty of free space in front first. Nonetheless, the soundbars shape joins suitably with the TV curve. Meanwhile, those with mounted Televisions can utilize the L shaped bracket provided to securely attach it under the TV set.
The soundbar sockets are placed on the back-recess. A hole allows cables to pass through when straightened out. The line-up includes one HDMI input and an ARC-compatible output. This might seem inadequate but let’s not forget that there are a number of other pricier soundbar versions without a single HDMI input. An optical digital, 3.5 millimeter mini-jack inputs, USB music playback port and LAN helps you integrate the soundbar in multi-room setups. Other people prefer utilizing the built-in WI-Fi setup instead.
The most obvious feature is its 9.1 channel system accompanied by dedicated amplifications for sub-woofers and speakers running on 350W of power. A centralized speaker delivers the right sound across the bar. The outward facing drivers on both ends add onto the width of the sound-stage. The soundbar plays high resolution audio (96kHz/24-bit). When playing low quality compressed formats it applies High Frequency Audio Restoration technology to restore lost audio data during the compression process. Other outstanding features are the Dolby Digital 5.1 and multi-room audio.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, the Samsung HW-J8500 Curved 9.1 Channel 350 Watt Wireless Audio Soundbar offers one of the best sound quality ever produced. This soundbar can be a perfect option for watching movies, TV shows and listening to music.
