Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily one of the best soundbars available Excellent surround effects and amazingly simple to set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic immersive sound. I bought this soundbar about two weeks ago but I was not sure I had done the right thing in replacing my Yamaha aventage 5.1seperates system. I was blown away with the quality of the sound produced from the soundbar and surround speakers. No regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super powerful Very nice soundbar and this thing goes very very loud! It's also very detailed on quiet volumes which a lot of competitors fail at. Sound bubble and Atmos is very good with the sound stage very wide and the heights performing well if you don't have mega high ceilings. Would love for Samsung to allow two extra speakers like the rears to also be added onto the front to make the sound stage even wider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound really pleased with it Brought the Samsung Q990b soundbar last week really pleased with it. Great sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality! I had the Q950A last year, and saw when the Q990B was announced. I was unsure about upgrading at first. Then I saw they finally put the screen back where it should be and the fabric has gone! The sound quality is brilliant, clear, concise and very powerful. The sub woofer is a huge improvement, impactful and reacts the scenes really well. The 3D bubble has improved a lot, you can hear individual sounds clearly and is a noticeable improvement from the Q950a. By far the best soundbar out there and I’ve been through quite a few to notice the difference. Must buy for anyone looking for a cinema style sound system!
