Samsung Puts Wireless Multiroom Link Feature into Soundbar and Blu-ray Player

The Samsung HW-H750 Soundbar comes with a wireless subwoofer for a total of 320 watts of sound.

We're seeing more wireless music solutions these days -- and that's just from Samsung! The company was showing off several new A/V options at a press event in New York City today, and some of them will easily put audio into any room in the house.

That's because the company is adding in the Multiroom Link feature to a few select products for 2014. This builds off the success of Samsung's Shape Wireless Audio-Multiroom System from 2013, allowing compatible products to be linked wirelessly throughout the house. Samsung is adding that perk to a new speaker, a soundbar and a Blu-ray player.

However, it's not just something for streaming your personal music. Samsung is adding more streaming services to its lineup. Providers such as 8tracks, iHeartRadio and Rdio will join existing options, including Amazon Cloud Player, Pandora, Rhapsody, and TuneIn. Those same products will also support Spotify Connect, which allows users to stream Spotify directly to a speaker or A/V component, via a connected smartphone or tablet.

As far as the actual products, Samsung introduced several options, including the Shape Wireless Audio-Multiroom M5 Speaker. Smaller than the previous Shape M7 Speaker, the M5 can deliver wire-free music in any room in the house. It also has Bluetooth connectivity with Near Field Communication (NFC) for instant pairing. Once connected, users can control everything through a free app. Also worth noting is that the M5 can be used alone or with additional M5 or M7 units, if you're looking to build a multiroom audio system. It can even be paired with select Samsung soundbar products, as a surround sound option. Samsung also says that the M5 can be used with turntables or CD players through the Samsung Link Mate, which makes that content wireless and available through the Multiroom Link feature. Samsung will start shipping the M5 this spring for $299.99, with the Link Mate available separately for $349.99.

The Samsung HW-H750 Soundbar is more of a centerpiece and comes with a wireless subwoofer for a total of 320 watts of sound. However, this won't just boost everyday TV watching. It can also support 96k/24bit HD Audio. Compatible with Samsung's growing of Shape Wireless Audio-Multiroom line, the HW-H750 will ship this spring for $799.99.

For something that's less of a focal point, there's the Samsung HW-H600 Soundbar. Also known as the "Sound Stand," this slim unit is designed to sit under a TV -- as long as it's between 32 and 60 inches and no more than 77 pounds. Promising 4.2-channel multi-direction sound for a smaller space, the HW-H600 also has built-in Bluetooth and the TV Sound Connect feature for wirelessly connecting the unit to select Samsung TVs. Available this month, the HW-H600 is priced at $399.99.

The last in the new Shape Wireless Audio-Multiroom lineup isn't a speaker. The BD-H6500 Blu-ray Player is the perfect addition to a growing home theater system. It can handle Blu-rays, DVDs and CDs, but also has the UHD Upscale Processor, which promises to upscale full HD, HD and SD content to Ultra-High Definition (UHD) quality. It also features Smart TV access, as well as the Smart View 2.0 feature. That means users can surf for content on mobile devices and stream the image right to the TV, all without wires. Look for the Samsung BD-H6500 sometime this spring, for $179.99.

 The HW-H600 Sound Stand can sit under TVs between 32 and 60 inches, up to 77 pounds.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
