I see why they discontinued this
this could have been the absolute best soundbar surround system on the market, if samsung would have done a better job on their side. sound quality when it works is fantastic. but!

right out of the box the rear speakers started having issues, disconnecting and crackling sound. but after a firmware update this was partially fixed.

now im left with one of the rear speakers only connecting when it feels like it and dropping signal constantly.

wifi connecting is poor with this device.

no google assistance?? just terrible

Q90r sound bar
on paper, the q90r sounder was everything i wanted. in reality, it was a 15 month long major disappointment. the 2 hdmi inputs never really worked properly in terms of audio, the sound bar would frequently disconnect from the tv ( also a samsung ), it would also fail to respond to volume inputs. the only remedy was to unplug and the plug it back in again. it even will not register as being online in the smart things app and cannot be restored. at this point, it has failed to work at all. for the $1500 i paid, this is so unfair to me as a consumer. any remedy on your part would be welcome.

Wonderful Cinematic Experience, in the beginning.
owned about 1 glorious year. nice sound clarity, hard hitting bass, full home theater audio. i loved this soundbar! .... until i got the 1012.6 firmware update. minus 1 star.

ok, let's talk about that 1012.6 firmware update.
1. the front and rear speakers are more prominent than before.
2. a "hidden" feature was added to incorporate the rears for non atmos media playback, if you choose.good
3. you can now hear the the faintest ambient sounds, that you may have missed before in a movie/tv show.

now here's the bad part of the 1012.6 firmware update

remember that hard hitting subwoofer bass you use to have?
it was replaced with hollow , no mids, no floor vibrating bass.
the subwoofer now sounds like a cheap knockoff subwoofer.
all the bass is gone !!
sent in for diagnostics.

Worst soundbar ever!!
i purchased this from magnolia at best buy. for 3 months, no issues but then it hit.

sub cuts in and out, both the light at times and just total distortion and then came the rears. i finally had enough and samsung chat assist started with not so accurate advise, aka, my soundbar shouldnt have rear speakers. of course, this was wrong because it came in the box and this was the flagship speaker set from samsung. i have facotry reset, moved everything inches to the sound bar and the solution.... have to unplug and keep unplug (not use) the sub or rears. friends ask what in the world and when i explain this is the flagship, they are suprised. over 1k wasted.

Bugs. Bugs. Bugs.
i was told that the q90r was the best sound bar on the market. it's true that when it works, the sound is great. however, be ready for some technical problems. i have e own that sound bar for almost a year now, and i still have a hard time connecting it to my living room tv. i have error message after error message. it connects pretty quickly to my old tv in the bedroom, a tv that i never linked to the the sound bar.......... worst purchase. stay away from that expensive sound bar or be ready to watch movies on sunday night with your regular tv sound. i wished i had read the reviews before purchasing.

Dont buy if you are planning to keep long term
just over 1 year passed and my soundbar is giving issues. rear speakers always disconnect and make a cracking sound from the rear speaker/woofer.
talked with samsung customer care and it's a paid service that god knows how much they are going to charge me.

bad decision buying this soundbar. i would not recommend this.

I like the sound
like the sound and look of the system, however, it is really hard to find out how to connect to the wifi, and bluetooth functions. i still haven't been able to figure out if i updated correctly. after you update software, it should give a message saying updated successfully. for the price, all of this should be crystal clear.

Terrible product
i was very sorry to waste a lot of money on this product. i could not even update the firmware after being on the phone with 3 different technicians. the sub woofer and side speakers never connected. i was told i needed to update the firmware. using the smartthings app, ubs thumbdrive and 2 hours with a techician on the phone i was told i had to mail in the soundbar. the r product was obviously a total failure - hence the newer za model. i was extremely disappointed with this product and lost a lot of money. ps - the instructions to sync with my tv never quite got a perfect match either - despite the fact that i bought the matching q90 model. i really did not want to choose 1 star but i had no choice because i could not add my comments without selecting at least 1 star.

Good sound but no sound field
Rear channel sound quality and volume always low. Quality of sound also relatively poor. Really tried to like it.
