Samsung's HW-Q950A soundbar system carries a record-breaking number of channels – and it sounds absolutely awesome

Massively powerful, distortion-free movie soundtrack playback ; Creates a uniquely immersive sound stage ; Compact design for such a powerful system

Expensive by soundbar standards ; No full auto-calibration system ; Ridiculous LED placement

Extremely present centre channel ; Room-filling sound ; Excellent feature set
