Fresh from scooping up a TechRadar Choice Award to join its entry in our best soundbars guide for the best Dolby Atmos sound, the Samsung HW-Q990C is the soundbar of the moment. And right now, you can pick one up for the lowest price we’ve yet seen in Australia at Appliances Online.
Samsung was already riding high for producing one of the best Dolby Atmos soundbar experiences in the Q990B predecessor, but the Q990C takes everything that was great about that ‘bar and improves upon it. The star of the show once again is the 11.1.4 channel setup, which gives you four proper upward firing speaker drivers to deliver the enveloping Atmos sound experience.
And, boy, what an Atmos experience it is! In fact, in our Samsung HW-Q990C review, we confidently claim it delivers “the best Dolby Atmos soundbar experience on the planet.” Need we say more?
Delivering a Dolby Atmos experience unlike anything we’ve ever heard from a convenient soundbar solution, the Samsung HW-Q990C is the only one you need if you want to create an authentic cinema experience in your home. Capable of going loud without distorting and placing sound effects with stunning accuracy within the entire soundfield, it will change your movie-watching experience forever.
We were continually impressed by the Samsung Q990C soundbar during our review, and were pleased to find its music playback performance had improved over its predecessor too, making it a one-box solution for virtually all your home-entertainment needs.
And if you own a compatible Samsung TV, you can wirelessly connect it to the soundbar using the company’s Q Symphony software, which integrates your TV’s speakers into the overall package to create an even larger sound.
We were very enamoured with the Samsung Q990C, but our main gripe was its high asking price. Sure, it’s somewhat justified, but it’s realistically out of the reach for many. And that’s why this monster AU$924 saving at Appliances Online is one that we feel is too good to pass up.
