Samsung HW-J8500

 

Wherever you stand on the great curved TV debate, one thing's for sure – their sound quality is just as ropey as flat TVs'. So if you've invested in a curved screen, chances are you'll need a new sound system to go with it. A soundbar is the obvious...

Elegant curved design ; Wide, powerful soundstage and dynamic tone ; Clear dialogue and detail ; Multiroom functionality ; Subwoofer lacks detail and agility

Single HDMI input ; Subwoofer might not suit all tastes

Samsung HW-J8500 review

 

Whether gimmick or game-changer, curved TVs are here to stay – but sadly so is the typically inadequate sound quality. Soundbars provide the solution, but a straight one looks odd in front of a curved TV. That's why Samsung has conjured up a range of...

Snappy, vigorous sound; beefy bass output and room-filling volume; generous features; decent design and build

Bass lacks shape and detail; only one HDMI input; lacks top-end finesse of rivals

Neither of those models are curved, however, and the HW-J8500 is definitely the best-sounding 'bar Samsung has produced. Worth a punt if you need a sonic tonic for your new curved TV.

The HW-J8500 is one of Samsung's older high-end sound bars. We've tested several models in the range, so when we took this to our lab, we thought we knew what to expect. Was the sound as good as we thought it would be? Find out in our full review.

Samsung HW-J8500 soundbar review

 

Love them or hate them, it looks like curved TVs are here to stay, but just like their slim and flat peers, we're left wanting by the sound quality. That's why Samsung has crafted a curved soundbar to match its range of curvy TVs, with the...

While the HW-J8500 looks like a rather monolithic slab of tech, its understated design and simple brushed-black aluminium style should easily compliment your living room setup either in black or silver hues. The simple design extends to the soundbar's...

While the Samsung HW-J8500 delivers pumping sound and decent range, the £899.99 price tag is a bit hard to swallow - it can be found for cheaper though. As it's designed to go alongside Samsung's curved tellys, you'll be reaching deep into your wallet...

If you've got a curved TV and you're looking for a slick soundbar to pair it up with, look no further than the Samsung HW-J8500. While it's mighty expensive, the 9.1-channel sound is top-notch, it looks the part and is incredibly easy to use and get...

Samsung HW-J8500 Soundbar Review

 

Samsung's latest 9.1-channel soundbar boasts a curved design to match their latest TVs, a wireless subwoofer and an impressive level of sound quality

Impressive sound quality ; Attractive design ; Excellent build quality ; Extensive features ; Flexible subwoofer

Only one HDMI input ; Curved design and size is limiting

Well that really depends on what kind of TV you've got but clearly if you have one of Samsung's new then the HW-J8500 is the obvious choice. It has been specifically designed to match their larger screen sizes and in that sense it fits the bill...
