About the Samsung HW-Q800B
Panoramic sound from a compact bar
The Samsung HW-Q800B delivers big home theater performance thanks to 10 built-in speakers and Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding. This 5.1.2-channel sound bar system features dedicated up- and side-firing drivers that serve up cinematic, enveloping sound with your favorite movies and shows.
The included compact subwoofer adds deep bass impact to match the on-screen action. And it connects wirelessly for easy placement. (Just remember, you'll need to plug the bar and the sub into an AC outlet.)
Samsung designed this bar to work seamlessly with their impressive QLED TVs, letting you control and adjust the settings for both the TV and the sound bar with the Samsung TV's remote. And Samsung's Q-Symphony feature lets the sound bar and your compatible TV's speakers play together for even bigger sound. (Q-Symphony requires a wired connection between the bar and TV.)
It's also one of the world's first sound bar systems to support wireless Dolby Atmos. You can pass an Atmos signal from a compatible Samsung TV via Wi-Fi for cinematic home theater sound with less cable clutter.
This bar packs a punch with 11 built-in speakers, including up-firing and side-firing drivers for powerful 3D audio.
The HW-Q800B has a dedicated center channel to make quiet conversations easier to hear. Plus smart processing optimizes you’re sound settings and amplifies voices based on each scene you watch, keeping dialogue intelligible even at low volumes.
Convenient music streaming
You can play your favorite tunes straight from your smartphone with the bar's built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The HW-Q800B also comes with Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in for easy streaming.
Built-in Alexa voice control
With Amazon Alexa built-in, you can even control the sound bar with the sound of your voice. If you're an audio book addict like me, you can just say "Alexa, play Audible" to pick up right where you left off.
4K and HDR pass-through
The HDMI connections on the bar allow 4K video passthrough and support HDR10 and HDR10+ (High Dynamic Range). This makes sure you're maintaining the high-contrast Ultra HD signal from a connected Blu-ray player or gaming console all the way to your TV.
Clear audio cues are key for competitive, immersive gaming. The HW-Q800B's Game Pro Mode automatically tracks directional sounds to match what's happening in the game world, including overhead effects, for a smooth gaming experience.
Bluetooth with just a tap
The HW-Q800B's built-in Bluetooth can wirelessly stream your favorite tunes directly from your phone. If you use a Samsung phone, you can just tap it on the bar to start casting audio (requires Android™ OS 8.1 and higher and the SmartThings app). Bluetooth also works for receiving stereo audio signals from a compatible Samsung TV.
Expand your system wirelessly
You can increase your movie-night drama with true wraparound sound effects and additional overhead support by adding the optional SWA-9500S wireless surround kit (sold separately). This kit connects wirelessly to the sound bar, so you only need to plug in to an AC outlet instead of running speaker wire across your room.
