Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Sound A little nervous moving from an AV system with individual speakers but this Soundbar holds it own. Superb Surround Sound, with well centralised vocals with the rest of the speakers producing an amazing Sound stage. It looks and fits perfectly beneath my 55inch TV. Looking so much less cluttered (keeps the wife happy), without sacrificing the sound. It is a chunky Soundbar compared with others on the market - but the pay off is the quality of sound. This is my second one, the 1st one, wouldn’t automatically re-connect to the WiFi, Subwoofer and 1 of the rear speaker, when it had been off for a few hours - Samsung recommended it be returned to retailer, as it clearly had a fault. The 2nd one works perfectly. Top Tip: the Samsung Smart Things app, should automatically detect the Soundbar - the 2nd one linked straight away. So a little frustrating initially but got there in the end. Also you need high quality HDMI cables (doesn’t come with any). Ports: 2 x HDMI in and 1 x HDMI ARC out. Dolby Atmos sound is stunning, obviously depending on what Dolby Atmos movie or program you are watching and how well they have exploited Dolby Atmos Sound stage. I’ve only downloaded a few DTS-X samples but they sound equally amazing. Dolby Atmos is displayed on the LCD, when it detects the source but not for DTS-X. No test or auto speaker setting set up, included - surprising given the price but at least it allows you to change individual speaker levels via the small LCD display. Plus point - I like the way, the LCD switches off during viewing. The Samsung ‘Smart Things’ app, can be used, to check for updates - although it does say it does it automatically. The May Firmware update, apparently enables eARC. Overall, I am amazed at the quality of Sound and would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jaw dropping sound Bought this to compliment my new Q950r TV and so far I'm really happy with it. Whilst it's no looker from a design aesthetic the build quality is first rate with very heavy speakers (note if you want to wall mount the sound bar is very heavy). Once you get it wired up to the TV and Xbox the sound is amazing. Everything from terrestrial TV, atmos movies, games or music via bluetooth just sounds incredible. Play an Atmos test video and the sound truly envelopes you from all sides, behind and above. Main points: Pro's - Easy to set up with wireless speakers and sub woofer - Integrates well with the TV,automatically transferring the wi-fi details and allowing control via remote and menus - Sound is unbelievable, it replaced a Yamaha sound projector and blows it out of the water, in part because you have actual surround speakers plus a wonderful sub woofer - In atmos mode with the right movie it is sublime. - I wasn't expecting it to be good with music but is excellent, it must have a great DAC because it picks out every note and is well balanced with on the bass if you drop the s/w down a bit. Con's - It isn't pretty and the surround speakers aren't small - you have to hook the xbox direct to the soundbar. When that happens you lose the TV been able to use the one remote function to control the xbox which is annoying - I also think the TV no longer recognises that I have an xbox so the automatic switching into games mode for games and HDR for movies seems to have been lost, very annoying. - For £1,500 you might think that the machine would come with a mike to autocalibrate itself to the room and set up all 17 speakers and s/w. But no you have to try and do this yourself and there isn't even a test tone. - Linked to the above the machines cannot, unlike my old yamaha, have onscreen menus to control setup or make changes. Instead you have a tiny 1 inch scrolling display that you need to work with. Crazy ! - manual is poor, it doesn't explain the different sound modes or when/how to use them In short a fantastic machine but not without flaws.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sounds great when it works incidently Constantly Disconnects! I bought it 4 weeks ago and it never worked as it should since then. This soundbar sounds Great when working. BUT it constantly disconnects from the Subwoofer and Surround Speakers This is a systematic flaw and must be addressed and fixed regarding the products price and being a flagship model. Samsung fix it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly Disconnects! This soundbar sounds incredible BUT it disconnects from the Subwoofer and Surround Speakers when it's turned off and the only way to reconnect is to manually reconnect or power cycle the speakers. This is clearly a fundamental systemic flaw and one that must be addressed and fixed. Please Samsung lets us many users experiencing this know what the nature of this problem is and what we can expect as a fix. Is it a firmware update or a hardware issue? How did this pass testing?!?
