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.

Thats great news LeeS

 

I too can confirm that I am on 3109.1 with update being automatic. 

 

Need to test but very pleased there has been action and I hope it works as I have spent much time with emails I want my life back now hehe.

Quick update. Don't have time to test full 5.1 works, but have switched to full wifi mode (multichannel) with optical cable removed, rear speakers connected in surround and sound quality and volume is back to how it was before.

No bass issues or muffled sound. Happy days

Will do a full test ASAP but looks good right now.

There used to be, but now it looks like they just have video testing, not 5.1 audio.

Did you add the surrounds via TV or app?

Bass issus and muffling seems to be a lot better but the R1s  still seem very underpowered compared to the soundbar and sub -  to the extent im not even sure if sound is coming out of them..This is with the soundbar turned down to the minimum and the R1s turned up to the max.

Ah yes maybe I spoke too soon. Have tried both ways....... Setting up through app and TV. 

 

Everything is fine and sound is good except no sound from rear speakers that I can hear or so quiet that soundbar drowns them out completely . Can't do 5.1 test atm but will confirm tomorrow.
