Overall Great Package
i'd give this product 4.75 stars. for a single soundbar and subwoofer the audio quality is really good. voices come in clear and music sounds great for price range. i use earc with my 55 inch sony a8h oled, so i can't speak to the q symphony feature. has a digital display on the front that turns off after a few seconds so it's not distracting. i had a small issue the first day i set it up. the unit wasn't turning on automatically when i turned my tv back on. i had to unplug the power from the tv and sound system to get it to work. happened a few times. i don't know if the unit did a software update, but the next day it worked fine and has been good for a week now. assuming the issue is fully resolved, i would highly recommend this product. i wish it had google assistant compatibility.

The Importance of Sound
Dear friend how is reading this somewhere. It is fair to say that in the past I was reluctant to buy a sound bar. I remember myself making excuses among a group of friends and explaining how the speaker of the TV are more than enough.

Now, I tell with no remorse that I was outstandingly mistaken. The Samsung HW-Q800A is out of this world.

You might be wondering what is so impressive about this sound machine. The answer is extremely simple: it makes you truly enjoy and understand sound. I would like to make clear that is not that it sounds louder, it is just quality. Do you remember how television was before HD? That how I feel. The sound bar makes you enjoy HD audio, and the experience is so much better like when you first switched to and HD TV.

I did not like how tedious it was to connect the bar when connected via Bluetooth. Regardless, once you use the ARC to enable atmos sound it does become a beautiful thing.

I strongly recommended. Please do not settle just for TV.

Wonderful Sound!
This was so easy to install and can easily be added to gain excellent sound with any television. We are using this in our master bedroom and thoroughly enjoying it. The built-in voice assistant is an added benefit and always the ease of control. This system takes up minimal space yet packs a punch.

We have also used it to mirror music from our Samsung device and it's great how easy it is to use. Of course, being able to use it with Alexa is another positive note. This soundbar is useful in so many ways. Watching movies provide surround sound with voice clarity that we can definitely notice. This has been a great addition to our movie nights!

Deep, Engrossing sound for your home theater
This is the second Soundbar that I've owned but it's definitely my favorite. I was already a fan of the Dolby Atmos sound system whenever we visited the movie theater, so when I saw there were consumer sound systems offering that as an option I jumped at the chance. I've been slowly piecing together my own mini movie theater with a projector and now an awesome sound system!
The HW-Q800A provides a nice deep sound you expect from a system pitching the Atmos sound. The previous Soundbar we used, while good, still had a somewhat tinny sound for certain videos, but with the HW-Q800A that is no more.
One of the other nice features we have really enjoyed is the Alexa built into the speaker making it easy to start music playing on a whim.
We've definitely been happy with our purchase and has helped us transform our boring home theater into our own personal movie theater.

Samsung Comes to Play
I paired this with my Samsung QLED and they work together amazingly. It was as simple as plug and play. The sound quality of this sound bar is top notch, Dolby Atmos remains one of my favorite features of a high quality sound bar like this one. Using this sound bar with the HDMI eArc functionality is so easy that you don’t even notice that you are using something other than the standard sound. This has base for days and I would absolutely recommend this sound bar looking to upgrade their home theater system.

Fantastic Soundbar!
The Samsung Q-800A soundbar is the nicest soundbar I have ever owned! If you are wondering if it is worth it – yes, it is. You get what you pay for and this soundbar is a beast. I am not an audiophile by any means, but this one blows my old soundbar completely out of the water and you can hear a huge difference. Unboxing it, the first thing I noticed was that the Q-800A is heavy and substantial. You can tell it is made with high quality materials. I placed it on my TV stand however Samsung includes heavy duty wall mount brackets if needed. I hooked it up to my TV using eArc and it worked great right out of the box. Adding it to my home network using the Samsung Smart Things app was very straightforward and I had zero issues setting it up. The best part is I can use my TV remote to change the volume and I can also use the Smart Things app to adjust more detailed settings, equalizer, etc. With the app, I do not even need to use the included remote control and can keep extra remotes to a minimum. I also love the display on the right side of the soundbar that you can see through the grate – easy to read yet turns off so you do not have any distracting lights while watching TV. The Q-800A sounds amazing and fills my living room with very full sound. Music sounds so good – you can use this as your main music system in my opinion. I also really appreciate the center channel which helps so much with dialog, however if you need more, the sound bar also has an additional voice enhancement setting. When watching action movies, the powerful subwoofer literally shakes our sofa! Everything sounds so immersive, and we feel like we are at the theater every time we turn it on. We do not have a Samsung TV so I cannot speak to the functions that are specific to certain Samsung QLED TVs. I love the Q-800A and it has really improved our TV viewing experience!

Woofer ruins the purchase
bought th qn90a 75 inch. wanted a good soundbar with nice base on the subwoofer. soundbar is pretty good. Subwoofer really is very poor at this price point. I was going to return as thought it was DOA. I eventually put aside the instructions and manually changed levels to at least get a tiny bit of sound.

It’s all about the sound!
This is not my first sound bar, but it's the best sounding so far -- most bang for the buck! It's not rich in features, but it is rich in audio details. Samsung did a good job with this.

Ease of setup: 5 star - really, it's very easy.
Sound quality: this is where it shines. The sound is better, more detailed than other units twice the price. Low volume: it's nice and clear, good presence, and detailed. Then it stays that way at higher volume. The sub-woofer adds the low end without overpowering or muddying anything. What a big difference sound is much crisper and has a better true surround sound. Voices are clear when watching movies. Very easy to mount And one of the best, most user friendly remotes I have seen in a long time.

An upgraded soundbar experience
This served as an upgrade of a prior Samsung model used in the living room and the main enterainment hub of the home. The size of the unit matched that of the previous device, so all of the advancements were an upgrade in quality and not footprint. The power and output of the soundbar is stunning, crisp and clean. It creates an immersive sound experience, with several sound modes, including a surround mode that simulates a surround sound system pretty well. Compared to other models, the output is more powerful, needing less volume units on the TV for the same sound output. I no longer have to turn it up to the 20s to hear in the kitchen. The subwoofer is a bit larger than the previous model, but the volume scale is still limited to 6 units and doesn't have quite the punch I like from an audio system, this limit in the bass is the single aspect that limits me giving a full 5 stars.
This unit coves with the ability to anchor to the wall, which is a very handy feature. Setup of the Soundbar is relatively smooth and straightforward. There is the option to use the HDMI ARC, and all of the sound settings can be found on the Samsung TV system audio menu. In this mode, it turns on and off with the TV, eliminating the need to constantly fuss with 2 remotes. Settings and controls can also be accessed on the SmartThings app for easier access and integration. It also has built in Bluetooth for ease of streaming from mobile devices, which is a huge plus. It sushi comes with Amazon Alexa built in with an impressive sensity to speach recognition range that I was not expecting.

Great Sound bar with excellent audio output
I have started using this sound bar from 06182021 and the experience I had until now is excellent. The best of the features was how clear the audio is when I watch a tv show or movie. I am not missing any of the detail from the audio. The woofer we get with the speaker takes the audio to next level. Thumping bass from woofer is excellent to experience in real time. I am glad i bought this product and planning to upgrade the same by adding satellite speakers to the sound system. This is a must recommended sound bar for any one who is looking for a audio system. I have the setup in my living room and the dolby sound effect is clearly visible
