Samsung HW-Q90R soundbar review: Full sonic immersion


Where this soundbar really wins is with the rear speakers and subwoofer in the box, making for a sublime 7.1.4 surround system that's without equal.

Awesome 7.1.4 immersive sound ; Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding ; Easy to setup ; Impressive build quality

No on-screen display ; Limited setup options ; No eARC support (for lossless audio return via HDMI)

Builds on last year’s award-winning N950 to deliver a genuine object-based audio experience, this new soundbar boasts rear channels, four upward-firing drivers and a beefed-up subwoofer – making it ideal for Atmos and DTS:X object-based audio. It's a...

Samsung HW-Q90R soundbar review: Punchy 7.1.4 audio plus Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, if you can afford it


The HW-Q90R delivers exciting, immersive sound, but we expected more features given the sky-high price tag.

Rich, detailed audio with a wide soundstage ; Surround mode upmixes audio sources to 7.1.4 ; Easy-to-use remote ; Two HDMI inputs

Big, bulky design ; No night mode ; No room correction ; Expensive

While it’s missing such key features as a night mode and room correction, the Samsung HW-Q90R delivers the goods when it comes to killer 7.1.4 audio. The soundbar’s two HDMI inputs and easy-to-use remote are also a plus, as well as word that...

Excellent if you can live with the price


As with many other people this is a tough decision as there is no doubt it is not budget friendly and after all it is ONLY a soundbar. Except that it is not ONLY a soundbar, it is an exceptional sound experience. If you can figure out how to get a...

Had this a week now after upgrading from the k950. Really pleased with it. No issues at all with the sound from the rear speakers as some have mentioned. Excellent service from Richard at Richer Sounds Leicester, arrived the next day. Recommended.

Superb immersive sound


We wanted an immersive sound to replace the amp and speaks on poles. Something. Easier on the eye. The sound is excellent has a sub woofer for the base. The diction is clear and there are several types of sound to select, highly recommended.
