Samsung has announced that select 2019 Q Series soundbars are available for purchase on Samsung Experience Stores and at select retailers nationwide.
Featuring Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technologies on select models, slimmer design and up to four up-firing and two side-firing speakers, Q Series soundbars enhance the viewing experience with powerful, immersive sound. Samsung also announced the availability of its R Series soundbars, including the R650, R550 and R450.
Optimized for 2019 QLED TVs
Samsung’s 2019 Q Series soundbars align with corresponding 2019 QLED televisions to create four “best match” models – Q90, Q80, Q70 and Q60. With sleek and compact design form factors, Q Series soundbars complement Samsung’s QLED TVs’ aesthetics. Optimized to work seamlessly with Samsung QLED TVs, QLED owners can enjoy plug-and-play connectivity via wired or wireless connections, control both TVs and soundbars with the Samsung OneRemote and fine-tune sound directly from the TV menu.
With Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based sound supported by up-firing and side-firing speakers and Samsung’s proprietary Acoustic Beam technology, consumers will experience sounds that move independently of one another, just like in real life.
New for 2019, Adaptive Sound technology analyzes the frequency and sound signals to automatically deliver optimized sound scene-by-scene. Even when reducing the volume, background sound is reduced and voices are kept clear.
Samsung’s SmartThings is integrated into the Q90, Q80 and Q70 soundbars, allowing users to easily tag the soundbar as a smart device within the SmartThings app to be controlled and managed to create a personalized smart routine.
Each soundbar can pair with Samsung’s OneRemote for streamlined control of the TV and sound. This year, users will be able to use Amazon Alexa to easily control the soundbar and access content through voice commands.
Audio Enhancements for Gaming
Samsung’s Q Series soundbars automatically convert sound to Game Mode Pro once the Samsung TV detects a console. Physical upward speakers provide a more directive and immersive sound with the Q90, Q80 and Q70 models featuring up-firing speakers while the Q60 features Samsung Acoustic Beam Technology.
R Series Soundbars
The R Series soundbars feature Smart Sound and automatically analyze content frequency to optimize audio and deliver clear dialogue, so whether users are watching a loud sports match or a soft-spoken drama, sounds will be optimized for TV viewing.
Game Mode boosts game sound effects and delivers a highly directional sound as if gamers are wearing a headset. This series is paired with 6.5” wireless subwoofers for deep bass and easy expansion without the mess or wires for perfect realism. The R650 also features a centre channel speaker for enhanced audio.
