I am particularly interested in the Audio Sync Function. The user manual states "You can use the + , - button to set the audio delay time between 0 ms and 300 ms". Could you please detail how granular the increments + and – are please as this a feature that will ultimately decide if I purchase this device. Thanks for the solid review.

Sorry but I think this review is over generous. Having the contacts on the sub woofer makes a mockery of it being wireless, you have to locate it by your TV. Secondly, and most importantly, unlike other Samsung sound bars, this one cannot be affixed to Samsungs own TV stand, thereby losing some of its aesthetic quality.

The author is an idiot. This is NOT A WIRELESS SUBWOOFER!!! All connections are made at the sub, therefore it has to be located near the TV unless you want to run over 30' of cables. This is never mentioned in his 'review'.

I'm suspecting the author is some blogger writing away in his underwear on a laptop on his bed and has no means to procure the products he claims to test. Rather he just read other reviews on Amazon and 'winged it', like he did his book reports in high school.
