The simplest way to connect the Soundbar is via the supplied HDMI cable to your TV. If your TV has an HDMI-eARC connection, you should use that connection to get the benefit of Dolby Atmos-encoded content. If your TV does not have an HDMI connection, then you should connect the Soundbar to the TV using the optical cable (also supplied with the Soundbar).

*Voice services may vary and may not be available in all languages and countries.

Initiate ADAPTiQ and follow the prompts in the app.

When connecting two bass modules to the Smart Soundbar 900, they must be of the same type.
