Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great immersive sound Bought this one month ago after several conversations with Richer Sound staff. Useful information given in a user friendly way! Sound bar is a great size, not too big ..it doesn't take over the room. Sound and options is fantastic, whole new experience from Coronation Street to F1 Grand Prix build up. Thanks for the guidance Liverpool team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crisp quality sound Samsung have done ok here, this soundbar is easy to set up and feels and sounds quality. With the Samsung cash back offer running at the moment it has to be well worth the money. The sound is not thrown around the room, is mostly directed straight forward, is not going to be as good as a surround speaker system, however am sure rear speakers could be added. Is no apparent support for smartphones so any sound adjustments have to be via the remote. All in all am impressed and would buy this very system again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound Needed the HDMI cable to connect as the Bluetooth or WiFi connections were not successful. Using the eARC with the Samsung Q90 TV is wonderful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great soundbar, Q-Symphony support and high bass Having a media wall installed and wanted to put a soundbar in that would last the next few years. I liked this one because of the wireless sub, the ability to add rear satellite speakers if wanted and the Q-Symphony support. Out of the box the unit sounded good! Plenty loud & the bass needed turning down, wayy too loud. If I had any doubts on the sub volume (was going to buy a larger Harmon kardon one) - that would have been massive overkill. Sound out of it is good. It’s never going to be the surround system I’ve had out of my AVR in the past, but for a tv & soundbar - I’m happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Q800 Great sound bar at sensible money I bought this two weeks ago and paired to LG C2 easily with no lip sinc problems. Improves speech and gives more depth and width to sound. Little sounds such crackling log in fire that so sharp. As I like background base rather thumping vibration I adjusted suborder to -1 which I feel more balanced. Sound easily replaces old 5.1 but may need rear speaker kit to get atmos properly. Only problem is any disc player etc equipment linked to soundbar will be cut off once soundbar switched off plu soundbar has no headphone socket so think how you use it if you want listen cd/did on headphones via TV. Impressed so far and great buy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar Bought it a few days ago so still early days but had a lot of bang for the price. A nice complement for my Samsung TV. Connecting to Smart Things App took a while but once sorted, you can control volume and settings from within the app. Nice subwoofer gives added oomph, although it looks smaller in pictures than it actually is All in all a nice addition to the new TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best matched soundbar I've ever had We bought the HW-Q800A to match the QN95A we were also buying and it's proved to be a great choice. The Q-Symphony feature gives great synchronised balance of TV and soundbar output. Using the ARC connection ensures seemless operation between the two devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soundbar from Samsung Samsung have really pulled it of of the bag with this soundbar. Ours is fixed, with brackets supplied, to the wall below our (Samsung) TV. It looks great and it really fills the room with a rich powerful sound. We have the A9500 rear surround speakers which compliment the soundbar and are strongly recommended. Like the sub, they have independent power supplies and are connected via Bluetooth. The large subwoofer is perfect, with thundering bass, allowing you to feel the sound. We are delighted with this soundbar and the excellent service provided by the staff at Richer Sounds in Bath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally - superb tv sound! After a long time struggling with connectivity issues - every which way HDMI and optical cables - I was able to install the Samsung sound bar, subwoofer and rear speakers in less than an hour, including unpackaging and clearing up. The wireless ID connection was just so simple and the sound, simply amazing. Plenty of power, volume, depth and effects - absolutely no issues hearing whispered conversations on tv. Goodbye bad old days...Samsung have ushered in a new era of fantastic sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic customer service I went into the Weybridge store, and was seen by Amit who showed us all the options available to us when purchasing a new soundbar. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and gave us some great options. Purchased my soundbar and delivery was quick, and was kept up to date on the delivery status. Highly recommend richersounds and will be purchasing from them again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounding especially with rear I purchased this soundbar Q800A and at the time got the free rear speakers SWA-9500S as well. Firstly just talking about the soundbar, it is definitely an improvement from the last Samsung Soundbar I had (HW-530S) which was a 2.1 channel. This is much clearer as it has the centre speaker. Unfortunately I have the Samsung 75inch Q60R TV so it doesn't utilise the Spacefit, the Q symphony or eARC however it still sounds great and works with just one remote which is very useful. I know people have complained about the bass that it is not as punchy on this soundbar however I beg to differ especially as you have the option to increase the bass level via the soundbar settings. Another useful option is the Airplay 2 as we all use it when playing music from our phones and its great to not have to fiddle with bluetooth pairing in order to play a quick song. In regards to the eARC, this is where alternative solutions had to be made, for those who haven't tried Dolby Atmos, it really is amazing and a step up from standard 5.1 however as my TV doesn't support eARC I purchased an Nvidia shield and connected it to the HDMI in port on the soundbar, and connected the soundbar to the TV via the HDMI out port to the ARC port on my TV, this now works great and I can watch Dolby Atmos movies on Netflix, Disney+ and my Plex server. Please do check that your TV supports eARC before purchasing as I would recommend purchasing a eARC supported streaming device if not. Rear speakers - I cannot explain just how much I recommend the SWA-9500S to go with this, honestly its like a night and day difference. they were originally very quiet however once we increased the volume on the soundbar settings (put the rear speakers and up firing speaking on the soundbar and rear speakers to 6) this made them amazing. I have noticed some lip sync delays time to time, however this is resolved by pausing and playing the movie or just backing out of the video and opening it again. overall its a great device if configured well, bit fiddly at first but you get the hang of it and if you have a Samsung tv then its useful how everything just works. However the price is high for what it is especially if you are not getting the rear speakers free or at least on offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soundbar for Samsung TV The soundbar was very easy to set up using Bluetooth only. The brief guide recommended a high speed HDMI cable with Ethernet which is even better but not so easy to set up. I am using the 'Adaptive sound' setting with the TV's Q-Symphony setting on. This really helps to connect the sound to what you see on screen. For music only, HQ mp3 files streamed from my phone sound amazing. My favourite so far is Latino guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriel playing Stairway to Heaven; is was like they were there in the room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung HW-Q800A I brought this to go with my Qn95a tv, what a combination. The base is incredible, the sound coming from the bar is outstanding. It sounds even better when you have the 9500s wireless rear speakers. Well worth the purchase.
