Samsung HW-F350 40” Soundbar Review – TV Speakers Needn’t Be Rubbish

Samsung HW-F350 40” Soundbar with 3D Sound Plus
It wasn’t that long ago I was enjoying my immensely powerful 7.1 surround system. Well I could, I lived in a detached house with plenty of room. Now though, I currently live in an apartment which I love, however sharing a block with 5 other people means I have to consider the neighbours and there simply isn’t the room to accommodate 7 speakers and a meaty subwoofer.

So, for the last few months I have been enduring the lacklustre sound of TV speakers. As televisions become thinner and thinner, speakers have less room available and the sound quality inevitably suffers. Soundbars have become an option for those who are looking for a speaker system that takes little room, yet still offers superior sound compared to those tiny built-in speakers found on most HDTVs.

Anticipation Album #6: Terror Bite the Virus by James Woodcock – Full Track Preview [VIDEO]

Anticipation - James WoodcockMy album Anticipation has been available for a couple of years now and I have decided to release full length previews of all of my tracks on YouTube over the coming weeks.

‘Terror Bite the Virus’ is the sixth track from my album, which is by far the strangest. It was also the most fun to create and involved me recording various sounds and effects from the Yamaha Tyros 4 keyboard and creating my own loops and mixes in Adobe Audition (audio editing software). It is a playful tune, designed to make you smile and feel a little devious also as you imagine yourself invading the operating system of a poor unsuspecting user.
