Samsung HW-Q950A Soundbar Evaluate: Theater-Like Sound

2021-07-28 11:00:00

Getting correct {surround} sound in your house used to require analysis. You’d should pore over boards (and earlier than that, fanatic magazines) to seek out the most recent and biggest gear to copy cinema-like audio at house. However as of late, the whole lot is cheaper and extra handy. Excessive-end soundbars like Samsung’s HW-Q950A include the whole lot you want besides energy shops—a single included HDMI ARC cable plugs straight into your TV for fast film insanity.

Tons of high-end bars attempt to bridge the hole between stand-alone A/V programs with receivers and speaker cables, however only a few obtain what this Samsung soundbar does. Shut your eyes in a small or medium-sized lounge with a ceiling flat sufficient for the peak channels to bounce again at you, and also you’ll swear you rented a personal viewing room. In the event you’re an residence proprietor or aesthete who doesn’t wish to stare at ugly audio system, it’s a match made in heaven.

Purposeful Kind

The HW-Q950A succeeds Samsung’s earlier flagship, the HW-Q950T, which sounded unbelievable. The brand new mannequin appears to be like practically equivalent. You get an extended, cloth-coated bar, together with an oblong subwoofer and rear surrounds. They’re all black and principally mix into the background, however hey, they don’t seem to be ugly. 

Let’s get some fast {surround} sound terminology out of the best way: What do numbers like 5.1, 7.1, and 5.1.4 imply? The numbers consult with the general driver rely. The primary is the variety of entrance and {surround} drivers, the second quantity is what number of subwoofers there are, and the third quantity (if there may be one) is what number of peak channels you get. Top channels are both aimed down from the ceiling through bodily audio system or, as on this case, bounced down off the ceiling from angled drivers within the soundbar and surrounds.

So with what many would name the standard 5.1 surround-sound setup, you get 5 drivers (three entrance and two rear), and one subwoofer. Samsung’s new bar goes effectively past that: 11.1.4 channels versus its predecessor’s 9.1.4. These further channels are for the edges, to make audio really feel extra immersive. Different upgrades embody assist for Apple’s AirPlay 2 normal and an auto-room-correction EQ mode, which adjusts the EQ to fit your room’s acoustics through a microphone constructed into the subwoofer.

These further drivers, when activated (extra on this later), imply that the HW-Q950A is bodily pushing extra sound in additional instructions than most soundbars you should buy. Relating to theater sound, typically, the extra devoted driver actual property, the higher.

Establishing the soundbar is as straightforward as plugging the surrounds, subwoofer, and fundamental bar into energy shops. (Have an extension wire or two helpful in case you don’t have a ton of plugs in your room.) Then simply plug the HDMI cable from the eARC (“enhanced audio return”) HDMI port on the bar into an HDMI port in your TV. It’s shockingly simpler than the speaker wire days of previous after I’d be hiding cables underneath the carpet or within the partitions. From unboxing to watching What We Do within the Shadows, it took me about quarter-hour to get the HW-Q950A able to play hissing vampire noises.

You may very simply modify the sound to your liking through the included distant and the bar’s built-in LED show. I’d like to present a proper due to the Samsung engineers for this show. I hate having to make use of dots or color-coded messages to determine what the hell I’m altering on a soundbar or what enter I’m utilizing. With this display screen, which makes use of precise phrases, I’m by no means confused.

True Encompass Sound

I’ve but to check a soundbar (or speaker system) that bounces hold forth the ceiling or partitions in addition to devoted audio system in these areas, however the HW-Q950A will get nearer than most.
