Samsung launches 2021 range of Dolby Atmos soundbars

05 Jul 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung's new flagship HW-Q950A is a powerful 11.1.4ch system with wireless rear speakers. The company is also launching more affordable options.

Announced in January, the new 11.1.4ch Samsung HW-Q950A is an upgrade over last year's 9.1.4ch HW-Q950T. HW-Q950A has built-in stereo, center, and side-firing units plus up-firing units for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. In addition, it comes with a wireless subwoofer and wireless rear speakers with additional up- and side-firing units (4.0.2ch). It is available without rear speakers (7.1.2ch) as HW-Q900A. LG, Sony, Sennheiser and other brands are also offering Dolby Atmos soundbar solutions but Samsung is the only company that can claim to have a 11.1.4ch system in a compact form factor as opposed to full receiver-based Atmos systems.

Samsung's 2021 soundbars come with features like HDMI eARC, HDMI input, Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Amazon Alexa, and Bluetooth. 'Q-Symphony' integration lets the soundbar and a compatible Samsung TV play in conjunction. New 3.1.2ch Samsung HW-Q800A, HW-Q700A and HW-Q600A systems are also available now, all with Dolby Atmos support. Specifications and pricing details can be found below. In addition, Samsung is rolling out more conventional 3.1 and 2.1 channel soundbars as part of its A-series. These will be known as HW-A650, HW-A550, and HW-A450.
