With the unveiling of two new premium models including HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T, Samsung Electronics has now rounded out its full 2020 Q-series soundbar line-up. Both the HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T support Dolby Atmos – which transports listeners with immersive, moving audio that flows all around you, along with DTS:X from DTS for multi-dimensional audio technology. They also include eARC support to produce full, rich and high-quality surround sound like Dolby TrueHD.
“In collaboration with Audio Lab in the US, we have been able to develop multi-dimensional surround sound that can be more accessible at home, which was previously only possible with a separate home-theater system,” said Seong Cho, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Product Marketing of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. Mind you! All Samsung soundbars are tuned at the Samsung Audio Lab in Valencia, California.
According to Samsung, The HW-Q950T delivers the audio quality of 9.1.4-channel, the maximum number of channels for currently available home-theatre systems in a single soundbar. The model packs in extra-powerful sound with two wireless rear up-firing speakers and also adds left and right wide channel speakers to the previous 7.1.4-channel system, allowing the audio output to express the motion on the screen in a more realistic way with greater immersion.
Consumers can further enhance the immersive experience by connecting the soundbars to Samsung’s 2020 QLED TVs. Q-symphony activates and plays surround sound from both the TV and soundbar, creating incredible audio synergy with compatible TVs.
In HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T soundbars, Samsung has also improved product design by reducing the height of both of models to 69.5mm from 83mm to fit perfectly with the TV. Moreover, the soundbars are also wrapped in Kvadrat textile to add premium elegance while maximizing sound penetration. “In addition to improving sound quality, we also focused on fine-tuning the soundbar’s design aesthetic by using eco-friendly textiles, made by Danish premium brand Kvadrat,” added Seong Cho.
Besides this, the HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T soundbars by Samsung also feature SmartThings App and Alexa voice service that enables users to command their favourite music streaming services, like Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and iHeart Radio. Music lovers can also now enjoy their favourite music with a simple tap as the Tap Sound feature allows the music from your smartphone to be sent directly to the soundbar.
However, we are yet to discover about the pricing and availability of these HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T soundbars by Samsung.
