Samsung HW-Q990C Review


Samsung's flagship soundbars have earned a fearsome reputation, so hopefully the new Q990C can continue the peerless run of form

Outstandingly powerful ; Peerless ; Dolby Atmos ; staging ; Dolby Vision and HDR10+ pass through

Expensive for a soundbar ; No 4K/120Hz passthrough ; Subwoofer occasionally struggles with music

Samsung’s latest flagship soundbar doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel – but then it doesn’t need to. And at least what improvements it does make are in all the right places.

Samsung HW-Q990C review: a fully-immersive soundbar experience


Samsung's latest flagship soundbar builds on the success of previous generations to deliver exceptional object-based sonics

Genuinely immersive sonic experience ; Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support ; Deep but controlled bass

No 4K/120Hz passthrough

This feature-packed and genuinely immersive soundbar powerhouse delivers Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based surround with enough cinematic scale to please even the most demanding movie fan. The subwoofer digs deep and is well integrated thanks to...

Samsung HW-Q990C review: Still the most immersive soundbar, but now even smarter


Th Samsung HW-Q990C retains the all-conquering immersion of the previous generation, but adds a few new smart features

Staggeringly immersive soundstage ; Deep, powerful and controlled bass

No 4K/120 and VRR passthrough

The Samsung HW-Q990C is a premium soundbar with a hefty price tag that offers superb sound quality and an incredibly engaging three-dimensional sonic experience. The presence and deep bass delivered by the rear speakers and subwoofer really help...

Samsung HW-Q990C


Packing 22 drivers and 11.1.4 channels, Samsung's refreshed high-end soundbar follows in the footsteps of last year's version.

Big, immersive, yet detailed and subtle sound ; Syncs its audio with Samsung TVs ; SpaceFit Sound room correction ; AirPlay 2 and Spotify Connect support

No discrete volume for built-in Alexa ; Power cords for satellite speakers are too short ; Q-Symphony and wireless Dolby Atmos require a Samsung TV ; No Chromecast support

The HW-Q990C doesn’t offer many improvements over Samsung’s recent flagship soundbars, but it still delivers stellar audio performance and a bevy of features, particularly for Samsung TV owners.

Samsung HW-Q990C Soundbar review: the right finishing touch


Samsung's Q990C is an excellent Dolby Atmos soundbar system that, in the right room, will give you jaw-droppingly good audio.

Sounds great ; Well priced ; Has everything you need in one box

Looks a bit boring and imposing ; Samsung doesn’t appear to sell stands for the rear speakers (third party stands are available elsewhere)

An excellent Dolby Atmos soundbar system that, in the right room, will give you jaw-droppingly good audio.

Samsung HW-Q990C Soundbar Review - Cinematic Spectacle Samsung HW-Q990C Soundbar Review - Cinematic Spectacle


Samsung's latest flagship Soundbar is another Dolby Atmos powerhouse.

Fantastic sound ; Immersive Dolby Atmos ; Tons of Features ; Simple setup

Rear speaker cables are too short ; Small onboard display

It’s hard not to love Samsung’s newest flagship system. It sounds excellent, regardless of what type of content you send its way. It sets up (mostly) seamlessly, is easy to use, and is packed with useful features. If you can live with the annoyances of...
