This 2.1 channel system fills any space with clear and well-balanced sound. Various technologies help to achieve the complete audio immersion. Being a complete solution, you do not need anything else – it comes with a powerful subwoofer, so this audio system covers the wide range of frequencies and it handles them perfectly. However, if you feel that it is not enough, you can use an extra solution, which is sold separately to get the truly embracing audio experience.

It supports Dolby Digital, DTS and DTS Digital Surround audio processing technologies. The modern design helps to blend it with any interior. This Samsung HW-M360/ZA review will be extremely useful for people who look for a good audio solution, which has many additional features.


Soundbar looks very modern and minimalistic. It doesn’t have any panels that stand out. There are buttons on the right side. There are only four of them – volume up and down, source and power on/off. The front panel features a display that is blended perfectly with the body. It also has a special panel which includes all the ports you need – it has an optical digital port, a USB port, and an RCA port. This model can be easily controlled since the buttons are located on the right side and you can reach them without any problems.

The provided subwoofer is connected to wirelessly. The subwoofer looks quite massive and it has a nice black wood panel. The back side has a special port which is necessary to make the output sound clearer and richer.

The soundbar can be placed on a table or wall-mounted. Its dimensions are 2.1x35.7x2.7 and the weight is 3.3 pounds. The subwoofer dimensions are 10.1x10.1x10.1 in.


It can be a great option for your home and the Samsung HW-M360/ZA specs prove it. This 2.1 channel system outputs 200 W of power, while the subwoofer outputs 130 W. It can be paired with the kit of wireless speakers (SWA 8500S) to make the sound truly enveloping. This model has 5 sound modes to optimize the output sound and improve your experience.

It has a powerful Bluetooth module that assures a perfect connection. it allows you streaming audio content using a compatible device – a tablet or a smartphone.

The special application can be sued to control this model. You can control not only the basic functions, like volume, power it on and off, but also use the customizable functions (equalizer). It also supports the Bluetooth PowerOn feature. This model can be connected to a Samsung TV wirelessly.

The manufacturer provides you with a remote controller. It is also possible to use the Samsung OneRemote with the TV UI to control the soundbar.

Unfortunately, this model doesn’t support any voice controlling technologies and it doesn’t allow you connecting an extra subwoofer. Overall, it is a great, high-performance model under $200.
