When using the K650 sound bar and two R1 Wireless speakers in surround sound mode over wifi with the latest firmware, The quailty of the sound K650 drops, sounds very muddy. As soon as you use the sound bar on it own, the sound bar improves. this is happening for a quite a few users.

 

can you help.

i have as i mentioned connected via wifi,  i have not been succesful at trying the soundbar on hdmi and the speakers working with wifi via the multiroom app, the tv menu only seems to allow for either or? unless i am been thick ( more than likely)

so why would i try that in the first place? the sound from bar connected via hdmi ( bear in mind when i do this the surrounds dont work) just sounds better to these ears, and when connected via the hdmi, the sound is also a lot louder from the soundbar, as soon as i connect using wifi ( as in all speakers are working) the soundbar volume drops considerably.

the sound from the r1s is there but quite frankly just sounds , well very tinny? assume that is how it is supposed to be , reading the forum there are quite of lot of concerns about SQ etc.

i have tried out putting tv in both dolby and pcm, esteemed members on the forum suggest out put needs to be set to DD rather than pcm, however when i switch to Pcm, volume jumps considerably, is this normal, the SQ from both sounds ok to me?

Any thoughts?

thx in advance

Hey guys, DeathOnStilts over on the US site, posted the following. I did not know there was a desktop app:

 
Preface

This solution may not work for everyone.  Only tested on Android and Windows devices.

 

Environment

  • 1x Samsung 65" UN65KS9500FXZA
    • Firmware:  1207
    • Connection:  WiFi (2.4 GHz)
    • HDMI Audio Format:  PCM
  • 1x Samsung HW-J6500R Soundbar 
    • Firmware:  3117.2/1103.0R
    • Connection:  WiFi (2.4 GHz)
  • 2x Samsung Radiant 360 R1 
    • Firmware:  3117.1/181R
    • Connection:  WiFi (2.4 Ghz)
  • 1x Samsung Galaxy S9+
    • Samsung Multiroom Mobile App v.4132
  • 1x Windows 10 Laptop
    • Samsung Multiroom Desktop App Beta v.1.5.0
      • Current version is more locked down and will not allow access to Equalizer option in Surround Group.
    • Windows Installer
    • Mac OSX Installer

Guide

  • Download and install the Samsung Multiroom Mobile App v.4132 on your device.
    • In app - create Surround Group.  My attempt to do this through the Desktop App caused it to lock up.  
    • Balance:
      • Soundbar = 0
      • Surround L = 6
      • Surround R = 6
  • Download and install the Samsung Multiroom Desktop App Beta v.1.5.0 on your Windows device.
    • In app - Go to Settings -> Device Settings - Equalizer.  Create Custom preset based on your preferences. 
    • My Preset Settings:
      • 150  = 3.0
      • 300 = 1.0
      • 600 = -1.0
      • 1.2K = -2.0
      • 2.5K = -1.0
      • 5.0K = 1.0
      • 10.K = 3.0

I now have clear audio that is no longer muffled and unbalanced.  Hope this helps

Samsung is no doubt working on a fix for that.

He said he had to have multiroom app and speakers grouped there first.
