    Powerful system- as long as you’re not looking not looking for Atmos via HDMI Arc

    I should’ve thoroughly read the reviews regarding this system’s inability to utilize Atmos via the HDMI Arc direct TV to soundbar connection. The only way to get Atmos is to use an external source such as an xbox, or dedicated bluray player. But I feel like the point of soundbars nowadays is to have a minimal system which was what I was aiming for. I don’t plan on hooking up a separate bluray player. If you have an external player then this won’t be an issue for you. The system sounds great even without Atmos and the subwoofer is very powerful. Sadly, I’ll be returning this unit as there is no Atmos support via HDMI Arc. Samsung needs to listen and address this as this is a major complaint of most customers regarding the HWK850/950 series soundbars. The complaints are dragging the ratings down on this system even though it sounds great.

    Great sound but Atmos doesn’t work

    I purchased this after hearing an incredible demo in a local store. I added a Samsung Q7 65” tv to compliment the sound bar. Problem is, ATMOS does not work (blue light won’t come on). I do not have an ATMOS blue ray, but managed to find a title online that was broadcast in ATMOS. Tried for an hour to make it work. After returning to the store was told that this unit was not built for streaming ATMOS, and it would only work with Atmos Blue Ray Players.

    Bummer. I don’t do disks anymore.

    So, the overall sound is pretty good,, so I MAY keep it, but as for Dolby ATMOS, this unit is a bust.

    blown speakers after 17 days

    they pop after 17 days of watching the foodnetwork and hgtv and Disney. We don’t listen to loud music or blast them loud. This is extremely disappointing and because we purchased from a store that only takes returns within 15 days we are stuck with them.
    Don’t buy these

    Disappointed customer

    1 month and issues have started

    I bought this sound bar 1 month ago. I followed all the instructionals on how to set it up correctly. Firstly the sound it produces is below expectations. The I have yet to get dolby Atmos to work and after connecting to Bluetooth for the first time and switching it back to TV arc the sound just drops out for no reason watching Netflix or TV. I have it connected to the SAMSUNG Q7 Qled, I have done nothing different since I first connected it. Problems after 1 month is not acceptable especially when it’s paired with another new Samsung product.

    Clean living room alternative.

    I have always been the guy that goes overboard when it comes to audio systems. Lots of speakers and big power. But a recent downsizing had me looking for a means to meet my expectations with little compromise.
    I bought this bar as a non-current demo model. Got a good price and brought it home hoping I had made the right choice.
    It fit perfectly with my 65″ TV and it’s certainly well built.
    I 1st connected it via optical cable from the TV. But soon realized it wasn’t all that good. I connected it through the Xbox One via HDMI and it came alive! Optical doesn’t support Dolby Atmos.

    Good not Great

    Sounds ok, biggest issue is it can’t do Atmos or surround through arc.You need another direct source input to the soundbar. They have fixed this on the N950 and N850 after promising to do a software / firmwareupgrade on this into that never came. Save your money they are way overcharging for this faix atmos bar

    Can’t add rear speakers

    I purchased this speaker system and while it works well I wanted to add a rear set of speakers to it because I’m getting a little hard of hearing and wanted a set of speakers closer to me. If I had purchased the HW-N850/ZA, mine is the HW-K850/ZA, I could have added rear speakers to them. Both of these speakers sell for $999.99 and in my opinion should be able to have rear speakers added to them. Otherwise the K850/ZA should sell for fall less and it should be clearly stated the “NO REAR SPEAKERS CAN BE ADDED”. Actually the cheaper Samsung sound bars will accept rear speaker add on like the SWA-9000S. So save your money and purchase the cheaper sound bar. I have had this system for a year now and didn’t need to add rear speakers until now. I do remember the salesman saying I could add rear speakers, but guess what……

    Samsung experts lol

    Not as expected

    The Samsung Expert at Best Buy said all speakers would play with music, they don’t. The upfiring atmos speakers only play in the HMDI mode. He also said I could connect rear speakers, you can’t. I expected expert advise from the Samsung “expert” and didn’t receive it. I should have returned it, dissapointed I didn’t. Just because the person is the Samsung rep doesn’t mean he knows what he’s talking about, do your homework. Just asking questions, and getting incorrect answers is unacceptable.

    Great Soundbar – but lacking Atmos support on ARC

    I really love this system! Unfortunately, you can’t take advantage of Atmos unless you hook an external disc player up to one of the HDMI ports on the unit. Most people who stream Hulu or Netflix will be in for a surprise when they find out that their TV will simply not offer the Atmos option. The most annoying part is that it does not even work with Samsung’s own QLED range – I own a 2018 Q7F and it won’t send an Atmos signal to the bar over ARC like it should. Of course they don’t tell you that until you find out the hard way once everything is set up at home. So yes, it’s a great soundbar but don’t expect to experience Atmos unless you factor in an external player – which seems very redundant and awkward if you ask me!

    Great sound won’t stay on

    This unit has great sound quality but if streaming or watching tv and you need to do something and push pause it turns off after a short time. Also at times will not connect to my Samsung tv. Have to turn off and turn back on. And even at times have to completely unplug everything to get it to work together. Watching football with surround on you can’t hear the refs. Yes you can turn off surround and hear them but who wants a surround sound bar you have to turn off to hear everything. Commercial on network tv only play background music. Can barely hear the voices. When it works correctly it sounds great. But it takes so much work to get it to work correctly. The entire reason I bought this is because I love Samsung tv’s. Wanted to match so they would work well together to bad they don’t. This may be what takes me away from them totally. Most of my appliances in my house are Samsung

    Not really a review but a question?

    Does anyone else feel like the subwoofer is just a little too much when the atmos kicks in? Most of the time all I hear is the subwoofer more than the rest of the there a way to fix this? Like my whole house shakes and I’m pretty sure my neighbors possible the neighborhood can hear that subwoofer

    Dead within a year

    Bought this product jan 2018. first 4-6 months worked great, sounded great. after that was glitchy and ultimately the sub died jan 2019. So far every samsung product i have bought died within a year. Phone, washer and dryer, tablet, and now this. I must be a fool to keep giving them chances. Well, not anymore.

    Sounds good when it works

    Soundbar sounds great when it works. Shuts off frequently when pausing watching; ie pause Netflix to just go to bathroom and when I come back, have to turn soundbar back on. Now, the soundbar will just completely disconnect while actively watching. Will have to shut evrything down to get it to reconnect.

    Crapped out after 14 months, Samsung wants more money to fix a 1000$ item that dies after 14 months! Do not buy!!!!

    Tech Crazy

    Awesome soundbar!

    I bought a display model from best buy and after a few adjustments, I have everything working well. My tv is an older Led model and after learning about the difference between ARC and eArc I figured I’d better connect through the sounbar instead of my TV. I connected my Fire Cube and my PS4 thru the sounbar and I get incredible Dolby Atmos through everything I watch. I stream only, got rid of cable years ago. I feel like I’m at the movies! Fantastic soundbar!!!

    The Soundbar stopped working after 1 year. The Soundbar stopped pairing with the woofer. I had to pay $150 to get it working again. It is defective.
