Samsung HW-Q990B soundbar review: the best Dolby Atmos soundbar system

 

Truly great cinematic sound out of a one-box soundbar solution? Samsung's Q990B Atmos soundbar challenges the very concept of what a soundbar can do.

Excellent fidelity Impressive Dolby Atmos effects Solid bass performance Granular-level controls Handles large rooms easily

Power cords are too short

“As Dolby Atmos soundbar systems go, the Samsung HW-Q990B is the best there is.”

Samsung HW-Q990B

 

With the latest version of its top-of-the-line soundbar, Samsung has unlocked a major feature–room correction–for everyone, meaning it's no longer exclusive to Samsung TV owners.

11.1.4 channels of terrific, room-filling audio ; SpaceFit room correction now works for everyone ; AirPlay 2 support and built-in Alexa ; Wireless Dolby Atmos connectivity

Q-Symphony and wireless Atmos only works with Samsung TVs ; Power cords for the rear speakers are too short ; No Chromecast support ; 4K video passthrough doesn’t support Dolby Vision

The Samsung HW-Q990B serves up 11.1.4 channels of pulse-pounding audio, and SpaceFit Sound room correction now works for all. But other features, namely Q-Symphony TV speaker syncing, still only work with Samsung TVs.

Performance Features Ergonomics Value

I’ve had the liberty of reviewing some very high-performance soundbars in the last couple of years that take advantage of the height information in object-based Atmos or DTS:X soundtracks to effect a more engaging soundstage. These are sweet-sounding...

Samsung HW-Q990B 11.1.4 Dolby Atmos Soundbar review

 

This 11.1.4 Dolby Atmos soundbar offers premium sound in an easy-to-setup package — but it is missing a few features.

I’m a sucker for multi-channel soundbars that are easy to set up thanks to wireless satellites and a sturdy wireless subwoofer. The Samsung HW-Q990B delivers a simple-to-setup solution that delivers detailed audio and impressive Dolby Atmos sound. It’s...

Samsung HW-Q990B | Recensione

 

L'ultima soundbar di punta di Samsung con Dolby Atmos alza gli standard del settore!

Samsung HW-Q990B review

 

Samsung's flagship Dolby Atmos soundbar sets the bar high

Fantastic Dolby Atmos sound ; Remarkably compact speakers ; Good connectivity

It’s not cheap ; No 4K 120Hz/VRR passthrough ; Music could sound better

The Samsung HW-Q990B has no right to deliver the amount of power, precision and soundstage craft it does from just four speakers. Basically, if you want the sound of a talented separates system but without the cables and clutter, your search stops here.

Samsung HW-Q990B review: sensational surround sound

 

Samsung's premier soundbar delivers a 11.1.4 surround experience, making for total immersion. Is it the best soundbar released in 2022?

Uniquely immersive surround sound for a soundbar ; Immensely powerful ; Supports passthrough of Dolby Vision and HDR10+

Expensive by soundbar standards ; No 4K/120 or VRR passthrough ; Stereo music playback not the best

The Q990B continues Samsung’s domination of the premium home cinema soundbar market, delivering a combination of power, detail, dynamics and full surround sound cohesion with movie soundtracks that no rival we’ve seen to date can match.

Samsung HW-Q990B review: Maximum immersion, minimum fuss

 

With a host of new features and a form factor that straddles performance and convenience, is Samsung's HW-Q990B the soundbar to beat this year?

Incredibly immersive sound ; Seismic levels of bass ; Auto room correction ; Alexa built-in

No 4K/120 and VRR passthrough ; Only two HDMI inputs

The Samsung HW-Q990B is a class-leading soundbar that flawlessly delivers Dolby Atmos and DTS:X using a room-filling and highly immersive 11.1.4-channel system. Effective room correction ensures the overall system is performing optimally, with tight...
