    Poor Quality

    This the 2nd N850 Soundbar that I have had since January, 2019. The first one was returned to Conn’s because the “base, treble” function did not operate. I am now having problems with the 2nd one. At first, it operated just fine. Then I could not get any sound from the unit. Had to use the TV speakers, which are pathetic. After trying to analyze the problem, and checking the owner’s manual, the sound now switches back and forth between the TV and the Soundbar.

    OK sound but no tuning tools

    The N850 came bundled with my Sasung Q90R TV. Had i been buying I would have bought the full surround Q90 Bar. The Q90 TV has a room tuning tool but it doesn’t work with Samsung Soundbars. Various sites suggest using a phone SPL meter to set this up but given the TV has the facility built in why not use it to set up Samsung soundbars?
    There are rear speakers available as a separate purchase for the N850 but they dont support ATMOS. Having invested heavily in a high end Samsung TV i feel a bit deflated with this product . It sounds OK but so do the built in speakers and I’d suggest the N950 or Q90 bar would be a much better investment.

    Amazing sound bar for films and music

    Amazing soundbar! The sound is incredible, and though the bar is massive I find it integrates very well thanks to a discrete design. It’s actually funny to see that some people are wondering where the bar is.
    I’m glad also that it’s compatible with Spotify connect, so playing good quality music from the phone is easy. I find the bar also very convincing when watching movies with clear voices and great action as well as music scenes. Basically I had never seen a soundbar with such a natural and beautiful sound before (there’s nothing in it like the usual chemical soundbar tones).

    So why “only” 4 stars?

    Well, thanks Samsung for the Alexa integration, but in Europe, Google Assistant is much more widespread! So it would be amazing if you could add this 🙂 I used to have the ability to ask google for one or another song with my old system and it was soooo convenient, I really miss this feature now. Especially as there’s no jack connection on the sound bar (only HDMI and Optical) so it’s not even possible to put an audio chromecast into it to make it Google Home-friendly 🙁
    The second problem is that the soundbar doesn’t always turn on automatically at the same time as the TV (which is also a modern Samsung) and even sometimes the TV needs to be unplugged and the cables withdrawn and then re-plugged and so on to be able to get the sound through the soundbar again. Quite annoying… even though this may come from the TV!

    Best crisp quality sound!

    The best decision I did with going with this.. I am having Samsung Plasma still and hence I connected with Optical Cable. Now I want to upgrade it with SWA-9000S but want to know what is the recommended distance between SWA-9000S and soundbar for optimum performance.

    The Phone app needs improvements ; You should be able to control the woofer from app.
