  • Does Dolby atmos passthrough work with your Q9 or do you have to plug your devices directly to the bar?

  • Hey. Quick question. I have the Samsung n850 my tv does not support arc so I run the soundbar via optical cable. In order to get the best surround experience Is it best to have the sound mode on “surround” or “smart mode” ?

  • The side speakers in the 850 are just surround speakers

  • Take my word for it…..The sound on this video is annoying as hell……Put a baffle on a professional mic, that'd probably solve that problem.

  • As this soundbar has already been discontinued, can someone tell me if they've tried either the Q80 (the direct replacement for the N950) or the Q90. I'm dithering if I should buy the Q80 or save a little more and go the whole hog for the Q90. One issue, I have a wireless router running in AP mode near my TV and I've heard that the Q90 can have issues with the rear speakers if its too close to the rears. so this adds to the debate. I've got quite a large room where I already have a 5.1 system, but the cost of a new amp and upfirers is more than either the Q80 or Q90 (plus I have a 55Q85 4K tv, so the soundbars will quite nicely interface with the TV). Any comments/suggestions?

  • @totallydubbedHD Thank you for this video ! I posted several questions in the previous comments, and I have a last one : Did you try in depth the SmartThings feature, what is it possible to achieve with it? The Samsung HW-N850 and N950 mentions it, but it is not mentioned on the SmartThings page :-/
    So I'm curious to what extend is it compatible,
    and if it is with Google Assistant ? (they mention Alexa but not Google Assistant or Home)
    and if it would be compatible with nvidia Shield (which does supports Atmos and DTS-X *pass-through*) ?
    Thanks again for the video 🙂

  • I'm considering buying this but it has some pretty horrible reviews with bugs and so. Can anyone confirm if this has been fixed please??

  • Time limited statement here, but Currys are selling this at an outrageously low price at the moment (ex-display) as its being replaced by the Q90R… I just picked up a pristine N950 for £650 and I can't believe that just actually happened.

  • Hey bud, how am I able to use only one remote? I have the Samsung QLED tv with the N950 as well. Please help. Plus I’m having trouble getting my Atmos to work on Xbox Microsoft Movies & Tv. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

  • Hi, does it have distance calibration? Specially for upfiring speakers?

  • I just bought N850 and rear speaker kit SW-9000 (got them for free as part of promotion) There is a 300$ difference between N850 and N950.

    With my current setup N850 with SW9000 kit does this make my system – 7.1.2?

    Will I notice significant difference if I get N950? I still have 1 week to return N850 and upgrade to N950 if I wish.

    Please let me know if anyone has compared N850 with rear speakers vs N950.

    Also is it true N850 and N950 share same bar and woofer? the only difference in my setup is the 2 upwards firing speakers?
    Also N950 has 512 watts what impact does that have compared to N850?

    In my case is it worth spending that extra 300$ (NZD) on N950? Would appreciate your feedback.

    Thank you

  • Is the soundbar in this video black or silver? I'm trying to find it in silver to match my TV and unit, but only seems to be available in black in the UK…

  • I really believe this is the best Soundbar When it comes to watching movies with Dolby Atmos.
    But what I want to know is how it sounds with music?
    Is this also A good Soundbar for playing music When having A party.
    And if you are watching tv, how does it sounds then? Or When watching tv, is it then Just in stereo???

  • Hey mate do you have any advice for the best TV set up with this? I've got a Samsung TV and it has PCM, DTS neo 2.5, Dolby settings options etc. Sorry if its an obvious question.

  • Nevermind the video review, my God where did you get that TV stand from, it's absolutely gorgeous, I tell you what, if you get back to me with the particulars of where you bought that TV stand, I promise you I will subscribe to you, here's hoping

    Aww bollocks then July 14, 2020 1:19 pm Reply
  • Good system.. but heavily overpriced so i wouldn't be recommending it to people.. there's lots of excellent soundbars out there at much cheaper prices
