Samsung HW-Q60R vs Samsung HW-Q70R

Samsung HW-Q70R review

Comparing these two models from the same line I can say that Q70R loses in channel quantity and power. Here we have 3.1.2 vs 5.1, and 330W vs 360W. The acoustic beam function is based on a tuned resonating tube that directs sounds to the side and up to the ceiling. There are also three forward speakers, i.e. dialogs are reproduced by the center own speaker. When all these speakers are combined with a subwoofer, you get a multi-channel object sound. The HW-Q70R supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X in all variants except IMAX Enhanced DTS:X. Samsung HW-Q70R

Samsung HW-Q60R review

Overall, the Samsung HW-Q60R is functional, not flashy, but provides excellent acoustic performance with TV shows, movies, music and games. The three front speakers combine effectively with the side speakers to create a wide soundstage, while the subwoofer is effectively integrated and does all the hard work at a low level.

Samsung HW-Q70R pros & cons

Pros

  • Because of identical drivers, it’s easier to move the speakers around the three-dimensional soundstage without noticeably changing character from speaker to speaker
  • Touch sensitive buttons on the soundbar for volume level, inputs, and basically everything you need in a quick layout

Cons

  • The setup is simple, but there are so many features that I wish this system can guide you through upon “setting up”

Samsung HW-Q60R pros & cons

Pros

  • Setup is very simple. If you know where you’re going to put these speakers, it’ll take you less than 10 minutes
  • The overall built quality is all premium. A metal finish to the edges and rear while still keeping it simple (not flashy), makes this a valuable accessory for your television

Cons

  • The sound bar is very heavy. You’ll need some support if you want to wall mount it
  • Only two HDMI inputs. Basically your TV and a gaming console
