Samsung HW-S800B


Samsung's ultra-thin Dolby Atmos soundbar packs a surprisingly powerful punch while offering a bevy of features.

Incredibly slim design ; Terrific audio performance for its size ; Upfiring drivers for Dolby Atmos height cues ; Built-in Alexa and Apple AirPlay 2 support

Expensive ; Best for smaller rooms ; No eARC support ; No optical or analog inputs

Samsung’s ultra-thin yet feature-packed HW-S800B soundbar cranks out impressively good sound for its size, but you will have to settle for some sonic compromises.

This superb soundbar delivers highly engaging Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sonics thanks to a class-leading 11.1.4-channel speaker layout and effective room correction. Overall sonics are superb, with plenty of power, although bear in mind the older and now...
