  • Very Poor
    2 months ago
    So the same item in the USA is sold by Samsung for less than $1300 (In dollars, £945) whereas in the UK is £1599.

    Comparing this to Sony HT-A9, LG-SP11RA, Sonos Arc, etc all offer room correction outside the box without needing any specific TVs.

    To make the matters worse, Samsung cannot do room correction unless you have 2021 Q series TV (meaning my last year's q90T 65inch TV from 2020) cannot do it.

    From the sound point of view, this system is decent, it definitely has the clarity but this price is way overpriced and would suggest the other items.

    Furthermore, when using the voice enhancement feature or bass enhancement feature, the rears stop working. And the Atmos effect on this and q900a is still quite poor.

    To make matters worse, they decided to put the display on top and you cannot change/control the volume of channel combo in the application. Also, the soundbar or the application doesn't even tell the source codec the soundbar is getting. Which makes it really hard to see if it's getting the right sound quality or not. As few televisions can reset the quality from Dolby back to PCM.

    For any price above £1100-£1200 is not worth it, but if it's below or in that range then is worth it.
