Samsung has decided to strengthen its 2021 soundbar configuration. Thus, the flagship Q950A becomes a record device for the company and for the entire market in terms of the number of channels – 11.1.4. It comes with a wireless subwoofer and two surround speakers. The latter have a 2.0.2 configuration and are also sold under the 9500s brand as a separate accessory for other soundbar models, complementing them with their multidirectional speakers.
Thus, the Q950A supports Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 3D sound technologies. And the Space Fit feature on QLED Neo TVs allows you to analyze the acoustic characteristics of the room using the built-in microphone and automatically calibrate the sound parameters of the soundbar. In addition, Q-Symphony technology allows you to synchronize your TV’s speakers with an external audio system. In addition, the Q950A also offers its own bass optimization function via a microphone built into the subwoofer.
If you want to enjoy music, then you can easily stream it to Q950A directly from your IOS or Android mobile device. And the Tap Sound function allows you to connect your compatible smartphone to the soundbar with just one touch. Built-in virtual assistants Amazon Alexa and Bixby provide voice control.
In addition to the Q950A, the premium Q series includes 4 more soundbars – Q900A, Q800A, Q700A and Q600A. All will be offered with a 100-day money-back guarantee from the date of purchase in the event of user dissatisfaction (this may vary by territory).
Additionally, customers will have the opportunity to purchase updated soundbars from the more affordable A and S series, as well as a special street model LST7T.
Worldwide sales of the new soundbars will begin in March. Information about the cost is not yet available, but it can be confidently stated that the Q950A will be more expensive than its predecessor Q950T last year.
