I never thought I'd see a soundbar that uses vacuum tubes—but I never thought I'd see a member of Motörhead at CES, either. The HW-F750 Wireless Vacuum Tube AirTrack Soundbar's very name pretty much describes what it does. According to Samsung, the tubes are there to lend warmth to the sound; according to everyone else, they're there just to lend some retro pizzazz to the 'bar. The SoundShare function lets you connect your TV's audio to the bar wirelessly via Bluetooth. The 'bar also has an internal gyro that senses its position and adjusts the sound quality accordingly. No price available yet, and I couldn't hear it (or much of anything else) in the packed Samsung booth.
