Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value atmos bar I have this connected via ARC to the 2018 Samsung Q9FN and have an Xbox One X plugged into it. When you first plug the bar in the TV asks you to go through setup and has to try a few different methods for control before it finally can control both the xbox and soundbar under any scenario. Once this is done you can use the one remote to switch from tv/apps to xbox and have the soundbar switchover to HDMI pass through automatically. You can even use the remote to control apps which is handy on the xbox since the controller switches off after a few minutes when you are watching Netflix. Once the appropriate Xbox video and audio settings are selected (bitstream with atmos) the soundbar passes 4k HDR through and receives atmos audio from Netflix, the blu ray drive and games, if the content supports it. The bar will always say in atmos mode if that is selected on the xbox but other than Netflix and some games other apps like Kodi and VLC will not transmit true atmos, only regular surround sound at best. The Q9FN cannot pass through atmos, nor do any TV apps seem to transmit it (not even Netflix, defaulting to Dolby Digital+ at best, and you will only see this automatically selected in TV settings if the content supports it otherwise it will be greyed out). For most non atmos content on the xbox, selecting bitstream and Dolby Digital is best instead of atmos mode but you MUST select Surround on the soundbar and make sure Virtual speaker is on as well, otherwise you will not hear any psychoacousitic rear channels (unless you bought rear speakers). If in atmos mode mode, standard mode, adaptive mode or game mode, you CANNOT hear rear channels under any circumstances. If you are playing Call of Duty BO4 which doesn't support atmos for example, people will shoot you from behind and you won't hear anything. This is unfortunate because if you have selected game mode on the TV for lower visual latency the soundbar switches to game mode every time you launch a game and there is no way to stop it. You have to manually select surround mode every time. This could be fixed in firmware, but when psychoacoustic surround can be used is not even explained anywhere in the manual. Overall atmos should be manually switched over to only If you want to play something that has atmos sound, and those things are few and far between. When you are hearing atmos, it is good, definitely fuller than 7.1 surround but I can't pick out the vertical placement that well. It is very room size and shape dependent and probably you need to step up to the N950 for a more impressive atmos experience anyway. I still reccomed this bar because I got it for $850 AUD from Harvey Norman, it is low profile and narrow, yet is a pleasure to listen to with bitstream dolby digital signals. Speech sounds clear, loud and full. Special effects and game sounds in surround mode definitely sound like they can come from any direction and are exciting. However when listening to music at higher volumes the midrange can fail to keep up and can make the subwoofer seem overpowering and differentiate this bar from more expensive but larger counterparts. I would give this bar 5 stars if I could stop it automatically switching from surround mode when the TV is in low latency/game mode. I wanted a bar that is not too cumbersome, not to expensive, but performs well and allows me to experience perks like atmos. This bar does the job in a big way. I would only spend on more sophisticated options if I had a room designed for home theatre or a TV larger than 65".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing speakers I bought this about a week ago from the good guys. highly recommend this speakers. I connected also my Xbox to the dedicated Hdmi port on it, in order to get dolby atmos activated, absolutely love it, and got the other ARC to the tv, amazing. so when I switch input, it changes to the Hdmi by itself. the sound is superb quality. Overall I find Samsung products with great quality at all times. The lifecycle that they have around their products is very solid. Amazing work Samsung!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor - Cannot use Atmos and OneRemote Together I upgraded to this soundbar from a previous generation Samsung 2 channel soundbar that came with my Samsung 55" UHD TV. Primary reason for upgrading was to get Atmos decoding, primary reason for sticking with Samsung was compatibility with my TV and single remote support. Unfortunately the product listing here does not explain that you CANNOT use Atmos decoding and OneRemote support at the same time. If you want to control the soundbar with your Samsung TV remote you need to connect via Digital Optical and that connection method cannot passthrough Atmos audio from the TV. If you want to listen to an Atmos soundtrack you cannot control the soundbar using your Samsung TV remote. Despite instructions in the user manual this function does not work, and a Samsung support representative confirmed this was a product limitation. BUYER BEWARE - if you are considering this soundbar for its Atmos support and integration with your Samsung TV then buy something else instead as you will be disappointed with this model.
