Good for Dolby Atmos......Average for anything else
I returned the complete Bose soundtouch 300 system for this. Main reason for the Bose return was no Dolby Atmos and the wifi connection was always disconnecting. Other than that it sounded great. Now for this sound bar package. This is great when playing Dolby Atmos content. Bass is booming and surround sound is almost unmatched. The problem is that there is no dts or dts true hd support. The sound bar does an ok job at playing the foe 5.1.4 when movie mode is engaged and surround is on, but it's no where close to sound you get with Dolby Atmos. Also normal viewing with direct tv which supports Dolby digital 5.1 is very disappointing also. Netflix and all other streaming apps are the same also. You can barely hear the rear speakers and have to crank up all the settings on the speakers and also the volume to get descent sound. It's a night and day difference when playing Dolby Atmos content compared to anything else. Samsung needs to fix this. There's no reason this system can't support everything other than Samsung just doesn't want to provide the firmware update. This is a big deal breaker especially for the price. I purchased at Best Buy and am an elite member so I have 45 days to return. If Samsung doesn't provide an update for this I will be returning. The Sony Dolby Atmos sound bar coming out shortly is supposed to support everything. I'll probably return this and wait for that one to come out unless Samsung fixes this issue.

ATMOS = Amazing, everything else is average
The good things: - ATMOS is really impressive - Very powerful

The bad things: - Terrible dead air/hiss sound from rears when no audio being played - No Support for DTS X or 5.1 DTS track (Only DTS 2.0) - Multiroom App is unfinished and buggy (has potential) - No dedicated input buttons on remote, requiring to scroll through inputs(makes programming Harmony Remotes a pain)

Great sound bar, not so great rears and no DTS 5.1
Sound bar portion sounds amazing. Subwoofer is loud (a little to boomy in my opinion though). Lack of 5.1 dts is annoying is you plan on watching blurays. The main reason for 3 star review is even with latest firmware, and turning all speakers to -3 and rear speakers and rear upward speakers to +3 I cant get enough volume out of the rears to be noticeable. Also the rears hiss (maybe affected by wifi router?) Honesty the hwk850 may be a better choice because of this. If Samsung patches them to be adjustable to be louder or adds dts 5.1 support I will update my review.

Good, but it needs upgrade.

The HW-K950 can hardly be considered a mere "soundbar" because it is actually a full Atmos sound system, with rear wireless speakers and subwoofer.

The sound quality is superb and when ATMOS is activated, look out: it will blow you away with full, rich, clear and truly immersive sound with plenty of power to back it up.

The soundbar, itself, is hefty, containing eleven speakers (9 frontal and 2 ceiling pointing) and it is long, measuring 4' across. . You need a good size base upon which to set it.

The two rear speakers produce great sound and also have ceiling firing speakers. In the ATMOS mode they really kick it.


Incredibly, this great sounding ATMOS system loses its appeal when playing 5.1 and 7.1 DTS Master Audio. It only plays in stereo and uses the rear speakers as weak duplicates of the front. This is a MAJOR lapse in engineering and really needs to be fixed quickly. A friendbought the system and returned it for that very reason. And I'm still undecided, since so many Blu Ray disks default to 5.1 DTS MA.

And since ARC is used I am a little disappointed that I have to read the menu screen on the soundbar, which is small.

Lastly, while the sub-woofer produces an immense bass, it borders on being too bassy, even with a -12 option.


I like the system and would really love it if Samsung just went all the way and, instead of giving us two-channel DTS, I mean, really, two channel?, gave us a fully abled sound system that played the two major sound formats.

This is a nice addition to my home theater system. It looks great and sounds good. Bought at a good deal but not cheap. See my "con" below. I like the sub woofer that can rattle the windows but this one doesn't. You can hear it but not feel it.
