Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and excellent service Although showing out of stock, I emailed to see when it might be in. Hanley branch checked and could confirm stock was due it that day. Order placed and it arrived at my house 3 days later. Also the best price around at the time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It is not 11.1.4, it is 11-0.5-2 !!! It is impossible to make this work with 4 rear speakers. I've tried reset the bar and quite a few things but if I link a pair of speakers plus the subwoofer, the other pair don't work. I would this as a package with the SWA-9500S. As Richer Sounds don't have this in stock I have to pack everything and go back to demonstrate this, before I can get my money back. Very disappointed because the advise that they gave me was pathetic (we can call someone to install this for you -> This is wireless and it should work pressing a button).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung Surround Sound System I recently bought this Samsung surround sound system from Richer Sounds Solihull. They are my go to retailer for anything TV/Sound/Music and another great experience. Stuart quickly identified the best system for my budget. It is all about trust as I have had many successful purchases from RS Solihull and never had a problem. It was delivered within 2 days and although I struggled to set it up, Carl in store talked me through it and it produces a superb sound and that immersive experience. Thanks again to the Solihull Team

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! I bought this two weeks ago and the sound is amazing. Night mode and voice enhancement are great features to use at night when you have neighbours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from big sound easy setup. needs f/w updating straight away using app (I needed to power off soundbar for 30s to get this to work). True Atmos from Plex on Nvidia Shield is out of this World!! surround upscaling is a nice feature - really fills the room. got it for £999, which I think is a sensible price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Soundbar But Lots Of Smartthings Issues I bought this soundbar after months of research to replace my old Yamaha soundbar. As I own a Samsung TV, and Phone it seemed to make perfect since to go down this route. The soundbar fits perfectly under my TV. The Sub is huge but fits really nicely in my living room. I bought a couple of speaker stands for my rear speakers. The first thing is the rear speakers power cables are ridiculously short if your using stands and had to purchase a couple of two metre extension leads. Set up is supposed to be easy. Well not for me, the left rear speaker refused to connect and took several system resets to finally connect. Once sorted I was able to connect the soundbar to Smartthings, which is really important to add extra features to the soundbar. Smartthings actually prompted me to add the soundbar. Just let it do its work. The voice enhancement is brilliant and make the dialog really clear. Volume control. This is where you can also use Auto EQ to calibrate the system to your surroundings. You also add Alexa here, you will need an Amazon login, just follow the prompts. This all worked fine for me. I did quick test for the Weather, Alexa came back perfectly. Step forward a couple of days. I was swapping out my WiFi router. This turned out to be a disaster for the system. I needed to reset the soundbar multiple times to get Smartthings back. I needed to remove Smartthings totally from my phone for it to even work again. Eventually I got the soundbar back in Smartthings, however Alexa no longer works. I have to say this system is loud! It has an amazing sound, the Sub is like thunder. However, there is a real lack of Atmos content available on Prime, Netflix or Sky Q UHD. But what is available this system excels from quite dialog to thundering sounds a aircraft, railways etc. Just wish everything was in Atmos. Despite a few niggles mainly with Smartthings this is a great piece of kit

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound Great sound from this system. Easy system to set up. Twice the rear satellite speakers lost Bluetooth connection to the soundbar and needed to be set up again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound system, poor Alexa implementation The sound system is surprisingly impressive. Coming from a 5.1 sound system I was a little skeptical on whether this would be an improvement. After all, you don’t need fancy directional speakers to bounce of wall. Turns out fancy speakers that bounce sound of walls actually work really well and simulate, wide open sound stage. In terms of audio quality, it’s as good as I’ve heard. And I consider myself very fussy when it comes to sounds. Were the sound bar is let down is the Alexa implementation. It’s very poor. The voice vs volume of the sound bar is out of kilter and there is no adjustment. She is constantly shouting to the point of distortion despite the volume being set to low. This is a known issue but Samsung appear not to a knowledge it. Stream music from Alexa also has intermittent moments of drop out. No. This is nothing to do with my Wi-Fi connection. It’s purely hardware and software related. So in summary as a sound bar for movies, gaming, TV, it’s first class. Just don’t buy it for the Alexa implementation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound quality all round I have owned many soundbars ,sonos arc, Samsung q90r ,Samsung n950 ,Samsung 950t and without doubt the 950a is the top dog here, it's the rear surround speakers that make the sound completely different with the 3 rear drivers ,it just brings the whole bar together in harmony.why any one would buy the sonos arc is beyond me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound for your ears Got this sounder a week ago and so pleased with, After viewing and listen in Middlesbrough (great shop and great help) got it home and set up and the first film played with it, the voices are so clear and planes flying overhead sounded so real it fill the room with sound, Had a dennon set up with so many wires, this made the back of my tv a complete tidy up with hardly any wires now as well. As for richer sounds they are the best place to buy electricals and so easy to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and expert advice Called on Saturday to ask about the Samsung HW-Q950A sound bar. Many other stores had it in stock, but other than regurgitating the manual and online reviews the sale staff were not much help. Jason and the team at Richer Sounds however, were completely different. Not only was their knowledge first rate, they even offered to set the system up in their demo room the following Monday. I went to the store to see the bar working and WOW.... not only was the bar fantastic, so was the service. Every aspect of the bar as demonstrated, nothing was too much trouble and I was not rushed or pressurised in any way. I would normally buy this type of product from J Lewis, but no longer. Bought the bar there and then. These guys give great value and a personal service as good if not better than J Lewis.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent, but well overpriced The soundbar has decent sound and voices are clear. Depending on the content watched sometimes the voices sound tinny. The price of this soundbar puts it at a two star. If it was £400 cheaper like it is in the US it would be a 4 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound without all the wires I bought this soundbar 3 weeks ago to replace my Panasonic Home Cinema system. I was looking for something that could match a Cinema system but without out the need for cables everywhere. Once I had settled on the Samsung Q950A I looked around for the best deal . Once again Richer Sounds was the place to go . I ordered it over the phone and they managed to get it to me the next day .This system comes with two rear speakers that compliment the amazing amount of speakers that are in the soundbar.I am really pleased with my choice and would definitely recommend it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best soundbar in the world A true 11.1.4 soundbar sounds too good to be true, but these are real physical channels and none of the virtualisation that other soundbars have to rely on. The sound field is astonishing and dialogue is crisp clear in spite of action and background sounds. Having owned all the major rivals to this bar, this is easily the best and it is not even close.
Date published: 2021-07-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound I bought the HW-Q950A to replace a Pioneer SBX-N700 and the difference in sound quality is staggering. Not just because of the additional rear surround speakers but because of the power and responsiveness of the sub woofer. Initial setup is straightforward but getting everything to work with external devices such as Xbox Series X was a little more tricky as I don't have eArc. When I finally replace my 2018 TV to a newer Samsung model with Q Symphony I'm sure I'll be able to get the best out of it. NB - when connecting via arc make sure you use a good quality 2.1 HDMI, even though I don't have eArc it didn't respond too well when using the old 2.0 cable I had.
