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.

To get clearer center channel I have to deselect surround mode manually in the tv settings before selecting wifi mode (making sure it only show the soundbar icon on screen first)

But no matter what I do when I turn off TV, soundbar just say as wifi and I have to do the whole thing again when TV is turned back on. Grrrrr think I need counselling now as well as I am even dreaming about this soundbar

This is quite funny actually. This all was figured out because my wife and I got into an epic fight last night about the TV and remote. We just finished watching a movie and I left her on the couch to go play some games on the PC. She asked "Why do I have to use two remotes? What happened to using only the TV remote?" (This was because I normally leave it in 3.1 for her and the kids during the day, but for movies 5.1 and optical). I told her it was because the surround sound is necessary. She then asks, "Well can you change it back? I don't like using two remotes!" I respond (brace yourselves): "DEAL WITH IT!!" because I was in a good match on Battlefront and didn't feel like listening to her annoying complaint. Well, that Star Wars match did not end well and thus began a new match, much closer to home. In the end she went to bed mad, I stayed downstairs on the couch. I decided to change it back to WIFI so she would not flip the next day and to my surprise, it sounded good! So there you have it. Wives are great motivators for getting things fixed. Spousal abuse should be added to the list of growing complaints toward Samsung.

Maybe! She has been increasingly annoyed with the amount of time I spend tweaking this thing. I am annoyed as well. Samsung clearly isn't as mum's the word with them.

But for clarification, you are saying it sounds clear right? Just that the sub needs to be turned down? It is unfortunate that the L and R channels utilize the sub as well, but aside from that, there is no muddiness anymore.

Sorry just one more observation.......... I have too much base at low volumes (50 and below) and not enough to none (above 70)

Not so bad between 50 and 70 lol

Geez. I wish I could play it at those volumes. The kids are in bed when we start watching stuff, so I cannot crank it up. I am in the 20's to 30's TOPS. Never have heard/seen it go anywhere above the 30's lol

Yes muddy sound has gone but just have bass problems (too much at low and not enough at high) don't get this in workaround mode (all sources tested).

And when TV is turned off I have to go through whole thing again removing surround speakers in TV settings.

But at least I can use TV remote in this set up........ Just not sure I can live with bass issues until fix from samsung

Oh and for ease of anyone else, (waiting on podavies to come back) do we just need to connect via WIFI in 3.1 and just setup surround in the app? That's it? We do not need to switch from D.IN to WIFI?
