Samsung HW-Q90R vs Samsung HW-Q80R

Samsung HW-Q90R review

The soundbar effectively controls all emitters, providing excellent 7.1.4-channel sound. For this amount, the user receives 510 watts of sound power qualitatively distributed over a complex configuration, including a wireless subwoofer and two wireless speakers that need to be placed behind the seat. With the right arrangement of all emitters, you will enjoy great sound. Using the settings provided by Samsung, you can quite accurately cope with the setting up. Even by ear, you can set the surround sound relatively accurately. Thus, getting a very good result is easy. Samsung HW-Q90R

Samsung HW-Q80R review

The Samsung HW-Q80R Soundbar is a powerful combination of a mid-range soundbar and subwoofer. HW-Q80R can play Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats. This is not the only advantage of the considered soundbar with 5.1.2 sound circuit and 370 W power. Bass lovers will be very pleased to watch the impressive large (8-inch) speaker located on the side panel of the subwoofer. Due to the side speakers, the consumer can not put this soundbar in a niche under the TV. Samsung HW-Q80R

Samsung HW-Q90R pros & cons

Pros

  • 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
  • Because of identical drivers, it’s easier to move the speakers around the three-dimensional soundstage without noticeably changing character from speaker to speaker

Cons

  • The sound bar is very heavy. You’ll need some support if you want to wall mount it

Samsung HW-Q80R pros & cons

Pros

  • Touch sensitive buttons on the soundbar for volume level, inputs, and basically everything you need in a quick layout
  • The controller is comfortable to hold. I found the enjoyment of seeing buttons for setting treble, bass, audio sync, and the levels of the various speakers

Cons

  • Only two HDMI inputs. Basically your TV and a gaming console
