      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I owe this magic equipment for over 12 months... I think you cannot buy nothing better at the moment. Only one downside - missing wall mounting for rear speakers.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from For over 6 months now I previously had the K950 and the upgrade was mainly for DTS:X I did notice the sound quality upgrade too. They look the same but the sound is definitely superior. And samsung sorted Dolby Atmos over ARC its brilliant. I absolutely love this sound bar. The clarity and accuracy is precise. The atmos effect is insane for a sound bar. What they have achieved with this setup is incredible. It truly is. Music fills the room. Movies sound like the orchestra is in the room. Helicopters fly overhead. Rain feels like it will chill and soak you. If you want a simple but powerful setup do no overlook this. There is nothing that rivals it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb soundbar I’ve had the soundbar over 7 months now and I have to say it’s fantastic. I’ve seen a lot of reviews that criticise the rear speakers, Atmos and bass unit. You will only get the best from the soundbar if your input is decent quality. I have The Xbox one x and I bought The Dolby Atmos app and the demo is absolutely breathtaking. Also Netflix and other movies I watch in Atmos really show off the sound bars capabilities.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ATMOS sound bar money can buy I've had the N950 for three months, in combination with my LG 55OLEDB7, Nvidia Shield and Sky Q Box. Here's my experience so far. As you'd expect for the price, sound quality is very good. Detailed and balanced, reaching loud levels of cinematic sound when you need it. Dolby ATMOS takes this experience to another level, it has been implemented extremely well. The difference between ATMOS and regular surround is difficult to express in words; the stage opens right up and you become enveloped in sound whizzing around the listening area. There is a real sense of vertical sound but keep in mind this is 'only' a sound bar, expectations should be realistic, but Samsung/Harmon Kardon have really set the bar here! The volume of each channel (centre, side, front top, rear, rear top) can be adjusted. My sub-woofer is placed in the corner of the room behind the TV unit, set to -6 and shakes the house without breaking a sweat. PROS: - Easy set-up, Nvidia Shield connected to N950 HDMI port, with LG TV & Sky Q connected over ARC for TV Apps (the Shield doesn't support Dolby Vision from Netflix but LG's OLED range does) - No trouble playing TrueHD Dolby ATMOS and DTS-X content from the Shield. - No trouble streaming Dolby Digital Plus ATMOS with Dolby Vision from the TV's Netflix app over ARC. - Switching sources is simple (and family friendly) - pressing any button on the Sky or Shield remote does the job. - Clarity of sound. Crystal clear dialogue with regular TV viewing and movies alike. - Dolby ATMOS. Wow, the rear speakers explode into action compared to regular surround. The race scene at the start of Ready Player One is a showcase for the ATMOS capabilities of this sound bar. CONS: - SmartThings App: Bit of a pointless app but necessary to use features of the sound bar such as updating firmware or using the graphic equaliser. - HDMI Handshake issues with Sky Q connected to N950 HDMI input (similar complaints on Sky Community website about other TV and AVR brands). It's a Sky problem, but one you should be aware of if wanting ATMOS from Sky (currently only available with movies or sports subscription). Irrelevant if connecting Sky box direct to TV. Tips to get the most out of this sound bar: You'll get the best possible sound with Dolby ATMOS, it can reach the N950 in two ways: 1) Dolby TrueHD: Lossless 7.1 format contained in Blu-ray discs or MKV files, can be played from a capable streaming device (Nvidia Shield or Blu-ray player) but cannot be streamed over ARC* so must be connected to N950 HDMI inputs. *eARC supports TrueHD, but the N950 and LG B7 don't have it at time of review. 2) Dolby Digital Plus: Compressed 7.1 format used by Netflix, Amazon etc, can be streamed over ARC from TV to N950. Lower bit-rate sound quality, but still sounds fantastic and certainly better than no ATMOS at all. Ensure TV sound output settings are set to 'auto', PCM won't work. Use Smart mode: There's little info in the manual about the three different sound modes, but Smart mode is definitely the better sounding option for regular surround sound (Dolby Digital). Sounding louder and clearer than standard mode, it uses DSP to send discrete audio to the rear channels when there would otherwise be no signal there. Not available with ATMOS or DTS-X. . Unlike most sound bars, this is a true 7.1.4 system, meaning you WILL need content encoded with 7.1 or 5.1 surround for the rear speakers to receive signal. Ignore reviewers complaining they "can't hear voices" or "can't hear music" from the rear speakers. Simply put, if you're not playing 7.1 or 5.1 content, there IS NO SIGNAL for the rear speakers (unless you switch to 'virtual surround' mode, urgh). Do yourself a favour and do plenty of research on surround sound and where you'll source it from, before spending this kind of money. Would I recommend this to a friend? Absolutely.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Gold I recently purchased this cinematic experience from PC World having scoured the big stores around the country as they had them on offer at £1200. With my blue light card discount I had another £78 off so total cost £1122. I found a local store with one in stock, lucky me as they are all on order with a waiting list of weeks at the bigger stores. The set-up is simple but the sound is phenomenal. You can connect via Wifi, Bluetooth or hard wire and the sound is still the same, amazing. My place is not so big but the whole house lifts off with Atmos, I am not exaggerating when I say this, it is like having your own personal earthquake.# The looks are as you see in all the photos, but you can feel the quality as you unpack it, for a spacebar it is just so much bigger than I was expecting. Looks, feel, quality, purpose, facilities it rocks my world. Can't reccomend this kit highly enough.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Got the N950 a few days ago. It sounds amazing. Setup is pretty straight forward. Extremely satisfied with this purchase. The subwoofer is tuned nice and low and a lot more powerful than I ever expected from an 8" woofer. The sound quality of the mids and highs is fantastic. I'm using the ARC hdmi connection from the sound bar to the TV for the video pass through and running the sony x800 UHD player to one of the hdmi inputs. To get the atmos sound mode I had to adjust the settings on the UHD 4k player (basically turning off all the sound assist features on the player, and rate to 192khz) doing this displays "dolby atmos" across the sound bar screen on media coded with atmos and disables the other sound modes. It took me a day to figure this out but it was not soundbar related as it was from the audio settings on the player itself. Tip during setup that is not really "exactly" noted in the manual: plug in the subwoofer and rear speakers, press and hold the bottom on the back of the rears and subwoofer until the slow blue flashing light. THEN plug in the sound bar and turn on, hold up on the remote for approx 5 seconds until the message is displayed on the soundbar screen. This connects ALL wireless speakers. In the beginning I had plugged in the soundbar sub and rears, turned the sound bar on, the sub was linked from turn on but the rears were not, and could not get the rears to connect doing the steps in the manual. Its not rocket science it just does not note the exact steps i outlined in the manual. So if anyone is having rear wireless connection just do the steps exactly as I noted. Hope that helps anyone struggling on setup.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound I have had this soundbar now for 4 weeks and was reluctant at first because of the cost but as soon as I brought it home and set it up it blew me away. The sound that this soundbar creates while watching movies or listening to music is nothing but awesome. Its worth every penny. The Dolby atmos is amazing the way it fills the room with sound. The bass from the subwoofer shakes the settee which is 6 metres away from the subwoofer. My friends and family have come round to listen and their reaction is always the same WOW. My only Criticism is I am find it difficult to tweak the speaker levels on all the speakers which I have read will improve the sound quality even further.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly expensive but worth every penny This soundbar is big, in every sense! To hear it is like you were deaf before, you can tell where every penny went. Dolby Atmos is like 3d sound and even mp3s sound superb, it makes you want to turn it up to the point where you damage your house foundations. If you are considering buying this, don't hesitate.
