You are comparing apples to cheese whiz. Which is better, a Drink blender or a Subaru coupe? Get Ye to an audio site and bone up on this stuff. Klips makes superior speaker products compared to Samsung generally for audio, including their sound bars.Audio is all they do. Samsung makes fair dishwashers and flatscreen TVs, and fair audio appliances. The fact you are comparing a soundbar to a set of speakers makes it even worse. No soundbar can or ever will, provide the separation and sense of distance and depth of a set of properly positioned speakers. I have been making audio speakers and repairing hardware for about 25 years. You? If you don't want peoples opinions, don't ask for them. Try entering an actual salon or shop and listening to the products yourself. With the soundbar you will be stuck with whatever amp circuit they shoved inside it. with actual speakers you can upgrade or at least decide what amp you want to use, and adjust the tone. Either way, it will sound better than the puny speakers mounted inside the skinny flatscreen TV.
