My T.V. & sound bar adventure #4574088

I bought an Insignia 55" 4K T.V.($429.00) and Insignia sound bar($79.00) in February.
I knew both were cheap when I bought them but I took a shot.

A couple of weeks ago the sound bar would not play from the T.V.
Geek Squad at Best Buy said it was a circuit board and they would order it.
Circuit board is back ordered to next year. Their policy is if they cant fix it within 30 days you get a new set.

So I take the set back and get credit for what I paid and bought a Samsung 55"4K T.V. for $640.00. Plus $89 for extra warranty and protection.
Much better picture on the Samsung.

I tried to hook up the Insignia sound bar and it would not sync together.
Took the sound bar back to Best Buy and they gave me credit for what I paid for it.
I bought a Samsung sound bar with a wireless sub woofer for $230.00.
No problem hooking it up and it sounds better.

Lesson learned don't buy cheap house brands.
Best Buy was really good at making it right for me.

Win-win for both.

yes, sometimes you pay more when you go cheap.

friends who like sound don't let friends buy soundbars...

I installed a 7.1 HTS in the family room and a 5.1 HTS in the basement(primarily for gaming and casual TV watching), so I'm a fairly critical listener. I will agree that soundbars often aren't an optimal solution, but I have to say that the Klipsch RSB-11 soundbar I installed in my son's apartment sounds better than decent- the small wireless sub helps a lot. In any case, in an aprtment listening to movies at reference levels isn't going to happen.

We have a Bose outlet store at the mall near the house.

They have some really neat soundbars with multiple drivers.

For me the day of amps, and tower speakers is long over.

I need something I can play TV sound and bluetooth audio to also.

Yamaha also makes a real nice sound bar for around 200 bucks.

The saga continues.
But in a good way.
I checked Best Buys site and saw that the T.V. and sound bar were marked down a lot.
I went there today and got $178.00 refunded to my credit card.
Score one for the little guy.

Klipsch products are very good.
But I wanted to go Samsung to Samsung.
