Unreal for price & convenience

RSTinAZ 11/11/2019

First of all, I'm not a Samsung shill or biased fanboy. For example, I bought this for my 65" LG OLED C9. Second, I love great sound and don't mind investing reasonably to achieve the desired result. Third, I purchased the first THX certified pre-amp, amp, and speakers developed many years ago - at tremendous expense. I had to calibrate the system with multiple microphones, sound pressure meters, and even ran the exact same length silver 'rope' to all 5 speakers and the sub. That system was amazing and literally shook the plaster off portions of my walls. I spent countless hours sharing the system with family and friends who could not believe the experience. Yes, I'm alot older now and may have a less refined ear... and while this system had 10% of the power (@ 512 watts) of my first system, it does an amazing job. What took weeks and well over $10K (not including projector and screen), now costs an order of magnitude less and hour to install. Does the system deliver the same experience?... not exactly, but it is pretty darn amazing. And in fact, my first THX system did not have upward facing drivers... and this has 4!!!! Do they work?... without question. Are they as good as ceiling mounted?... of course not. I have had no connection issues (just as an aside). I believe the decision as to whether or not to purchase comes down to expectation. If you want full control and tuning over your sound... you should invest in discrete components and run wire. However, if you don't have the interest, time or money... which are all fair considerations... but you want a great surround experience, this Q90R can NOT be beat. Are there less (or more) expensive choices?... Yes... and none can compare - as of this writing. I have purchased many soundbars over the years and THIS Harmon-Kardon tuned 17-driver, 7.1.4, ATMOS beast (with a decent sub included) crushed all of them. By the way, even my fiance - who is generally not a fan of my obsession over technology - has actually enjoyed this system. So, I have no idea if this helped at all... but I hope if you're on fence, this offered some value. Congrats to Samsung for delivering the soundbar against all others will now be compared.

Great sound. Not so smart features.

Pashlit 10/15/2019

The sound of this bar is great. It is very loud and filling. I only go to about 10 on volume scale that is more than enough for my small living room. The bass is great and you can really fell the punch. I am not an audiophile but I can definitely feel the difference between TV speakers and this monster. The bar is huge! It is the same length as 55" TV I have. I wish it was a bit smaller but its OK. Overall I am satisfied with the system. Three HDMI ports (two in and out ARC) is more than enough for me. You can also connect it via optic cable, wi-fi or Bluetooth. I prefer HDMI ARC connection for best results. My only gripe so far is that Samsung does not want to develop smart assistant features. I guess it sort of works with Alexa (you will need an external Amazon device for that), but it DOES NOT work with Google Assistant at all. I almost went with another brand for that reason, but I already have a Q80R TV (which I have the same gripe with), so I ended up with Samsung. Yes, you can listen to the music via Bluetooth but it defeats the whole idea of stand alone home theater system. Samsung, if you are listening, please add Google Assistant capability to this soundbar and stop pushing Bixby thing. Bixby is terrible and it deters many people from buying your products.I have not met a single person who was happy with Bixby but I know tons of people who want Google/Amazon integration. If you properly implement Google and Amazon assistants your sales will skyrocket. Being an engineer myself I am even thinking of opening up that big boy and hard-wiring google mini motherboard inside of it. It has tons of space inside and I just do not understand why Samsung cant add such a small but extremely useful feature. LG, for example, has full Google integration and does not require any external devices. I have Google Mini connected to Nvidia Shield that is connected to TV right now. So, I can use Google/Youtube services I'm subscribed to. It is not the perfect setup and is a bit buggy. It also requires TV to be constantly ON. So, to summarize. It is a nice system but it needs improvement. Samsung, at least add the ability to connect Google home device that will eliminate the need of TV and external TV-Box and make this bar a nice and neat stand alone smart speaker.

WOW OUTSTANDING SOUND!!

Hank H 8/6/2019

Just got this Soundbar. Once you get it configured to your liking it's amazing. Using the HDMI ARC is the best way you will get the best sound. I connected it to my XBOX ONE and Purchased the DOLBY ATMOS APP. It's a one time payment of 14.99 or you can try it for free for 30 days. I put a 4k Blu-ray and wow it's like I am in the AMC Prime theater. Was really good Complete Theater sound. Didn't even have to turn up the volume at level 20 and it's already loud. Defiantly worth it. Got it in a good deal when it was on sale. Great overall Dolby ATMOS sound is the best hands down!!

Absolutely amazing!

AudiophileZ 6/25/2019

I have this soundbar paired with a set of Samsung SWA-9000S wireless rear channel speakers and let me tell you. I will never go back to a traditional surround sound system! This system has far exceeded my expectations. Clarity at all levels of volume, balanced bass, and brilliant mids and highs. With 13 drivers there's not a dull spot to sit in our living room. This soundbar will completely fill a 28x32 room with pure audio bliss. I highly recommend this soundbar and subwoofer. Pair with the above listed rear channel speakers and you will be amazed!

I'm Ecstatic!

JPHappyCamper 6/23/2019

I purchased through Amazon and it was just delivered. I live in a 4th floor apartment and had hoped that UPS would deliver, they bring deliveries to my apartment door. But the USPS delivered leaving it downstairs in the mail room. Fortunately I have a hand truck that I keep in a storage room. I really needed it, this thing is a beast. Just the sound bar itself is heavier than any other one I've ever messed with. Everything paired up with no issue. I have a Sony XBR930D tv and its remote as well as my Fios dvr remote can adjust the volume on the bar. I don't have the expertise of some, I can only judge based on comparing this to my existing Samsung soundbar, a K550 that I purchased in January of 2017. I had no real complaints about it but the difference with this Q80 is absolutely stunning. I've not changed any default settings or modes other than volume. I was extremely impressed from the second I turned it on, even before plugging in the subwoofer. I think many would be very pleased even without the subwoofer. I do keep the woofer behind our seating position, our couch. I did this previously to add some depth and somewhat make up for no rear speakers. Honestly with this thing I would never bother with rear speakers. Again, this is no technical review, I'm watching the movie Red on TNT this afternoon and I've been amazed. The voices are so clear that my concern about this when watching movies may never be an issue even without trying the other modes. There is no Night mode which I had used on the old bar to make dialogue better when watching movies without cranking the volume way up. It was recommended to me to try the Adaptive mode on the Q80 to deal with this but that may not be necessary from what I've heard so far. My knowledge is pretty basic and my needs are fairly simple but this thing is awesome.

Great sound but.

ARCLIGHT9177 6/19/2019

The good stuff sound was clean base was full and setup was easy now the bad only 3 sound presets pop jazz classical no rap or rock what up with that i real hope Samsung adds it in a update more bad news if you own a tv with HDMI 2.1 the pass though will down grade it 2.0 I don't under stand why Samsung would do this with there flagship soundbar line so if you have a Xbox one or plan to get the new Xbox coming next your you are going to have to plug the Xbox into the TV and not the sound bar i'm on the fence about sending it back over this.

ARCLIGHT917 6/18/2019

It sounds great but I'm not happy to find out there is no Way HDMI 2.1 pass though so if you have a Xbox one x or plan to get the new Xbox coming next year don't buy this I'm thinking about sending it back for you to get the benefit of the 2.1 connection you have to plug in your Xbox to your tv and not the sound bar Samsung why would you make your high end sound bar with out this your 8k TVs have HDMI 2.1
