Samsung produces soundbar systems that offer a good, neutral, and well-balanced sound profile to boost your TV audio. More advanced models are produced to function wirelessly with your TV. Let’s say you plan on getting a Samsung soundbar, can your Toshiba TV work with the soundbar system?

Samsung soundbars are designed to be compatible with any TV as long as the recommended ports and cords needed are available, so they are able to be used with Toshiba TVs. However, if syncing is a must-have for you, you should look at soundbars in the same brand.

Certain soundbar setups provide better sound quality than others so it is advised to do proper research before getting a soundbar for your TV. In this article, we would be looking at how you can connect your Samsung soundbar to your Toshiba TV using HDMI, how you can connect your Samsung soundbar to your TV wirelessly with Bluetooth, and the best soundbar for your Toshiba TV.

How to Connect Your Samsung Soundbar to Your TV With HDMI

Connecting your Samsung soundbar to your TV is easy and fast. This is done using HDMI or optical cables. These wires send digital audio from your television to your Samsung soundbar. 

In case you buy a new Samsung soundbar, and you need help configuring it to your TV with the use of an HDMI cable, you can get it done with these steps:

  1. Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the “HDMI OUT” port on the back of your Samsung soundbar. 
  2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the “ARC HDMI IN” port on your TV. 
  3. Power on your Samsung soundbar

More advanced models of TVs which are recently produced with advanced audio codecs such as Dolby Atmos, and HDMI ARC/eARC allow you to control your soundbar with your TV remote.

How to Connect Samsung Soundbar to Your TV With Bluetooth

As technology continues to advance, a lot of home gadgets are now becoming wireless. More advanced models of Samsung soundbars have built-in Bluetooth or Wi-Fi which makes them easy to set up with other Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled devices.

Let’s say you buy a wireless Samsung soundbar, but you don’t know how to configure it to your Toshiba TV. You can do so using these steps:

  1. Press the source button on your Samsung soundbar
  2. Set the soundbar to the “BT” setting
  3. When “BT READY” shows, press and hold the source button on the soundbar for over 5 seconds to display “BT PAIRING”
  4. Navigate to the setting on your Toshiba TV
  5. Select “Sound”
  6. Select “Output”
  7. Select the Bluetooth speaker list
  8. Select your soundbar from the list, pair, and connect

Using a wireless Samsung soundbar for your Toshiba TV does not produce the same sound quality as HDMI, but it is still a necessity because of its unique wireless form. 

Best Toshiba Soundbars for Your Toshiba TV 

Rather than using a Samsung brand soundbar with your Toshiba TV, you may want to look into using a Toshiba brand one to enable syncing.

Here is a list of the best Toshiba soundbar systems that can allow syncing with your Toshiba TV:

Now, let’s see some other brands of soundbars below.

Other Brands of Soundbars Compatible With Toshiba TVs

Soundbars come at a cheap price but offer a better TV audio experience. Soundbars come in different brands and models which makes it hard for you to select the right soundbar for your TV. Let’s say you want to buy a more advanced soundbar for your Toshiba TV, but you do not know which one to get? 

Here is a list of the best soundbars that provide better quality rather than syncing for your Toshiba TV:

  • Samsung HW-A450/ZA 2.1ch Soundbar with Dolby Audio
  • SuperSonic SC-1419SBA Premium Bluetooth Soundbar with built-in Alexa
  • TCL Alto 5 2.0 Channel Home Theater Soundbar
  • Sony HT-S350 Soundbar

The best soundbars make use of technology to transform their speaker sets into virtual surround sound systems, imitating the effect of using multiple speakers around your room. Most of the best soundbars also make use of Dolby Digital and DTS technology to give a more realistic surround sound experience. 

Conclusion

Samsung soundbars are designed to work with different TV brands and models to give you better sound quality while watching your TV. Samsung soundbars are easy and fast to configure by using cables, or wireless connections. 

Using Bluetooth to connect your Soundbar to your Toshiba TV doesn’t give the same sound quality as when using HDMI, but its wireless feature gives it a big advantage over the use of cables.
