It also praised the simplicity of its installation and noted the game mode allows an unparalleled sound quality.

The UK publication Experts Reviews gave the HW-N650 four out of five stars and offered a high recommendation to its readers. “It comes with a powerful wireless subwoofer that provides excellent bass, has an elegant design that fits most living rooms and has a good variety of connectivity options,” the publication said.

The Dream Digital Home and Tech Hive product review sites placed the HW-N450 and HW-N400 models among the best, simply-designed equipment that carries high-end technological quality.

Both are the perfect complement to Samsung TVs for 2018 as described in the article Samsung new QLED TV 2018 Television Lineup features Bixby and Ambient Mode.
