Bose Soundbar 500 vs Samsung HW-Q70R

Samsung-HW-Q70R-vs-Bose-Soundbar-500

Samsung HW-Q70R review

Comparing Samsung HW-Q70R vs Bose Soundbar 500 we can see that Samsung is 3.1.2-channelled while Bose has 3.0 channels. 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
