THE GOOD: 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. THE BAD: 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. OVERALL: 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.

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.

      Comments about Samsung Black 5.1 4-Channel Sound Bar With Dolby Atmos:

      I love this system and at the same time it can be a pain a lot of times. The sound is amazing, it's well built, it's easy to install and looks beautiful. Also music sounds brilliantly on this system. At the same time it has a lot of problems: 1) It doesn't do a great job connecting through ARC. First I had a Vizio TV, it kept connecting and disconnecting, I could lose the signal of the Blu ray movie 30 TIMES! during the movie. The same happened with Bluetooth and Wifi. I decided to replace my system and also buy a 2016 Samsung TV. The problem improved but there are still great annoyances. Everytime I raise the volumen too fast it makes my Samsung TV crash. It's crazy that 2 Samsung products don't get to work properly together. 2) Like a lot of people describes, there's a persistent hissing of the 2 back speakers in most of the content and they don't sound that good. They're amazing for Dolby Atmos content, but that's it. 3) THE MOST IMPORTANT FLAW: NO DTS X or 5.1 compatibility. So I always keep looking for a few movies compatible with Dolby Atmos, because half of new releases aren't compatible. I already replaced this system once and I'm still not sure if I want to keep it. Samsung should fix the DTS compatibility issue and the ARC problem ASAP.

      Samsung HW-K950 Review

      By

      Pros

      • awesome sound for a sound bar

      • lack of dts 5.1/7.1/x support

        Comments about Samsung Black 5.1 4-Channel Sound Bar With Dolby Atmos:

        Sounds great but frustrating to not have DTS 5.1/7.1 or DTSX Support. Hoping Samsung adds DTS 5.1/7.1/X Support. Would be quite frustrating if Samsung adds DTS Support in next year's model and claim it a "new feature". Last, the rear speaker hiss when not in use and can get annoying. Besides the lacking of DTS 5.1/7.1/X Support and the rear speaker hiss the soundbar is great but definitely feel like it can be improved upon.

          If you are playing Dolby Atmos (blue LED), sound is outstanding. If you are playing DTS Master Audio. You will be unhappy customer. Sound quality is terrible - rear speaker are very low in sound effect. Playing movies @ stereo sound, it is not cool at all. Release update and fix this issues. To many unhappy customer for this great design.

                    Was really excited about this soundbar. 500 Watts and Atmos!!!! Got the 1st one and hooked it up as per instructions> Samsung K8500 4K blu ray player and cable box to sound bar via hi speed HDMI cable and ARC out to ARC TV. Set TV sound out correctly. Got no audio or video. Re-checked connections and cables.. Put cables back into TV HDMI ports and ARC to ARC. Got Video, but no sound.. Contacted tech support from vendor I bought from and Samsung..Conclusion: bad Soundbar HDMI port. Sent replacement.. Got it all hooked up.. Woofer and speakers wouldn't pair. Contacted Tech support again.. conclusion: Stuck in store demo mode. could not reset. So, I returned the other one as well. Not sure if I just had bad luck, as the other reviews I read were all positive but....... On a good note, the 4K blu ray player, although expensive is absolutely fantastic. Too bad.. REALLY wanted this but now will look at another Manufacturer.

                      The atmos feature of this soundbar is really great but the sound from the rear is very inferior and almost non-existent. I have tried netflix 5.1 and a lot of other 5.1 sources and the rears are almost useless. For the price, you might be better off getting a proper home theater system. Or, Samsung please provide an update to fix this issue and make this soundbar universally amazing.

                              This soundbar is not able to play TrueHD streams from the Nvidia Shield TV. This is unfortunate since the Shield TV is one of the few streaming devices that supports Atmos over TrueHD.
