Most soundbars are sold at three or four-digit prices, but there are rare models offered under the 100 euro threshold and this is currently the case with the Samsung HW-T420. This entry-level soundbar does not lack power and thanks to a reduction and a refund offer, it is possible to obtain it for 99 euros instead of 139 euros at E.Leclerc.
Some recent TV models go all out on display quality but the sound reproduction sometimes leaves something to be desired with speakers limited to 10 or 20 W RMS. A soundbar allows you to considerably increase the sound power and optimize it depending on the content (movies, games, sports, etc.). Investing in such equipment can, however, prove costly, unless you choose this Samsung HW-T420 which goes below 100 euros at E.Leclerc.
The Samsung HW-T420 in brief
Powerful rendering for an entry-level model Compatible with Dolby Digital and Bluetooth Several modes to optimize sound performance
Instead of the usual 139 euros, the Samsung HW-T420 is now available on sale for 99 euros at E.Leclerc thanks to a reduction of 20 euros and this 20 euro refund offer.
A discreet soundbar, but one that has something in the trunk
The Samsung HW-T420 is one of the rare soundbars accessible to everyone, it comes with a 2.1 channel configuration and is accompanied by a wireless subwoofer. The bar itself is discreet enough to be forgotten under the TV, although it is also possible to place it on a wall using a hook provided, and it is easy to install since you just need to associate it to the TV with its optical digital input.
With its three speakers, the Samsung HW-T420 sends a total power of 150 W RMS, with a very pronounced bass signature. Enough to promote immersion while watching a film, and why not, make your living room look like a cinema room. Not to mention that the central speaker is specially dedicated to dialogues in order to guarantee clearer and more natural reproduction of voices. No Dolby Atmos in the program, but we still find Dolby Digital which simulates a surround effect.
Some features to improve the experience
The Samsung HW-T420 does not only rely on its power and the arrangement of its speakers to optimize the sound reproduction of the TV, it also offers several modes to improve its experience. There are three preset modes: standard, surround and games, however it is possible that the latter will not change much given the absence of an HDMI port on this soundbar. The Samsung HW-T420 also has a Smart function which automatically calibrates sound reproduction depending on the content.
Finally, this soundbar is not only dedicated to TV content. With its USB port capable of playing the majority of audio files (MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, etc.) and its Bluetooth compatibility, it is possible to stream music from a USB key, a smartphone , a tablet or a laptop PC. The wireless connection can be used in many ways.
