    Samsung HW-Q950A Thread 11.1.4!

    Question Soundbars with Atmos for a reasonable price?

    Evening all, looking for the above wondered if anyone had any recommendations? TV is a 65” Philips that will be wall mounted. Mrs isn’t having speakers all over the gaff so it’s a Soundbar for me. It supports Atmos, is that the best way to go or not really needed? cheers 🍻

    Do 5.1/7.1 soundbars work in an irregular shaped room?

    Having had a good old 5.1 surround sound system for many (many!) years, I've conceded that I may need to update to take advantage of the new formats. I like the sound of Atmos, and I don't mind spending a reasonable sum, but having been used rear speakers, and not really being very genned-up on...

    Question What's happened to the Q900T and Q950T Samsung soundbars?

    Has anyone heard what's happened to the Q900T and Q950T Samsung soundbars which were originally talked about? I see in the latest Samsung release they mention the Q800T which is on sale but seems the talk on the Q900T and Q950T seems to have gone silent. Anyone got any news on these? I'd like to...

    2.1 vs 3.1 soundbars

    I was told that for better dialog clarity that the soundbars with a center channel (at least 3.0 or 3.1) offer the best clarity for the spoken word in movies. Has this been your experience? Thanks

    Question £100 Soundbar recommendations ????

    Without being able to audition anywhere due to lockdown, soundbar reviews are a bit of a minefield. No real conclusive winners until you start spending serious money. Don't want to spend more than £100, don't need a sub, not too keen on bass heaviness , prefer a quality/balanced sound. Need...

    Panasonic SC-HTB488 or Panasonic SC-HTB258 Soundbar?

    Hi all, Very new to buying soundbars, so I have no knowledge. I have a Samsung UE55NU8000 TV which I bought a year ago. As usual, the sound isn't great at all and I've been needing to buy a soundbar. So, I have a £40 John Lewis Gift Card and thought why not buy one from there. I don't want to...

    Answered 55”: Q9FN or C8

    It’s that time of year again. The time when tons of people question what TV would be best for them at what is (hopefully) a great price. I’m no different. I’m sure it’s possibly one of the more commonly asked questions around, so I apologise if it seems like I’m wasting your time. LG C8 vs...
