yes but rear speakers are just 1watt speaker or something which kind if sounding like mobile speakers.. as i mentioned earlier the bass along with the rear speaker is not reproduced through sub but through speakers jtsel
How is the output via Optical port? I don't have HDMI ARC in my TV, so I couldn't connect to ARC. I feel I have to keep the volume to 80 while watching content from Tata sky. Is optical as good as ARC output? Please check and confirm.

I dont have an optical cable to try this out..as far as i know optical is sufficient for dolby digital .. dts master audio or dolby true hd or atmos only require higher bandwidth which hdmi only can provide..any way this sound bar doesnt support dts ma or dolby true hd...so connecting via optical or hdmi doesnt matter

Thanks for your reply.
The Samsung engineer that visited my home had no knowledge of how this soundbar works. He connected some wires(power cords) randomly which did not help. The Subwoofer turned on but no sound coming out of it. Sound from the Soundbar was too low and I had to increase it to 80 which I believe is not right.
Please could you help/guide me with the set up. I have the same A67E model bought during Big Billion day sale and I am unsure how to set it up.

Which tv you are using
I have a Thomson TV, 2019 model and it does not have an ARC port. So I connected the Soundbar to TV using optical cable.The sound is very low. My TV produces better sounds when kept at low volumes, 20 or so but the Soundbar volume has to be kept at 80 to match TV sound.
Do we need to change any Audio settings in the TV?

Second issue is that the Subwoofer lights are blinking continuously but I think it should remain ready? Is there anything with Subwoofer setup that I am missing?

Also I wanted to know if the Tatsky and the Amazon fire TV stick can be directly connected to the HDMI port on the Soundbar?

Tata sky and firestick can be connected to soundar directly.

I feel there is something really wrong with your set up.. if you want to reset device and properly configure follow the steps


First reset the device by holding vol + and vol - together for 10seconds..then device will show initi...its will initialise again.

Then pair sub and satellites..for this..
Press up button in remote for 10seconds..it will show id set in display.

Then sub will be paired..once paired.. sub will show solid blue led lighting...

Ensure the satellites also paired .the rear reciever must show solid blue led. If not showing solid blue led you need to pair it separately...

In TV its better to change setting as passthrough .if we select that ,TV wont try to decode , instead it will just pass the processing to sounsbar which can do the job best.
If you can mention correct model of TV i can help you out by checking if any specific setting there to enable.

Attaching user manual for your perusal.
Also i have sent you in msg my personal number you can reach me in that.

My review.

Soundbar is very good.
Subwoofer is powerful keep in any corner of the room to experience cinematic sound.
Even at lower volumes dialogues are clear.
Soundbars cannot provide perfect front left and front right channel separation and this sound bar is also not an exception to that.

Rear speakers are just small speakers 1watt speakers volume of that speakers even at high volume is very very low..this is ruining surround experience to an extend....but wireless reciever for rear speaker is good and it can support upto 54watt ..replacing those cheap satellites wih any good book shelf speaker and configuring volume levele will give better surround experience.

DTS virtual X will increase the volume levels of all tracks and one problem i noticed is if we turn on dts virtual x dialogue volume levels are very very less .this makes it unusable for many contents.. Other sound modes available are. Standard , gaming ,adaptive,bass ,surround.... Out of these Gaming sound mode and adaptive seems to be perfect for our daily use.

Playing proper DTS content is actually a feast.. listened to couple of concerts encoded in eAc3 dts codec...felt very good ..

I have paired soundbar with Google home via bluetooth and streaming music via google home is also giving good quality.

Movies played from prime and disney+hotstar with proper 5.1output is giving good effects. If can properly install satellites then can experience surrround sound also..but front side channel separation will not be able to feel since everything is cramped inside a single bar.

I purchased for 21400 for that price this is the best soundbar with neutral sound profile.. even for 26k its worth purchasing

So I received the product yesterday and I really think it's the same as Samsung HT-A670
I've the following reasons to believe so:
  1. The MRP mentioned in the product is same as A670(Rs. 47990)
  2. The specifications match.
  3. The model number is almost identical.
    In 2021, Samsung released three A-series soundbars globally: A450, A550 and A650. In India they add 2 rear speakers(swa-8000s) to the A650 and renamed it as A670, which is exactly like A67E
Hence, I would say it's better to go for HT-A67E from flipkart and save about 7-10k. My assumption is HT-A67E is cheaper because it's available only online(flipkart specifically).

I got it for 23k(including bank discount)

If anyone has different information then kindly correct me.

Hi i have purchased . A 67E
I haven’t tried many sound bars but for my rooms it is the perfect fit . Bass is amazing , surround is amazing - Surround is good only for youtube . In OTA rear speakers are just for the effects and no voice .

But overall amazing speakers .
