    LG's own LG SK10Y is one option that might be a decent match but it doesn't have DTS:X but you can also wait for LG's upcoming SL9 which will have both Atmos and DTS:X. One other option worth considering is the Sony St5000 can pass through Dolby Vision like the LG soundbars so will work just fine with your TV and has support for both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

    Does it? last time I asked everyone said it couldn't but nice to know it can as it will become a serious option to get in the future with a non-Samsung TV.

    Personally, forget any soundbar without dedicated rears. If your after just good sound then yeah a 2.1.2 system will do. For anything like good Atmos, I honestly dont see the point without rear speakers.

    I have big issues with Samsung, but my Atmos soundbar is blooming good (not just for a soundbar Atmos). The new N50 is a 7.1.4 and by all accounts superb now that it does DTS-MA and DTS X. You just need the right ceiling for those upward firing speakers.
