Renown tech giant – Samsung – just released the new lineup of soundbars for the year 2020 in South Korea. The soundbars were previously unveiled at the CES 2020 that took place in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year.
The lineup includes the new Samsung HQ-Q800T soundbar. This product comes with Samsung’s proprietary patented “Acoustic Beam” technology; which adds directionality to sound and supports Dolby Atmos and DTS: X (Digital Theater Systems: X) to bring 3.1.2 channels and provide a “perfect” 3D stereo sound.
In addition, since it supports eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel), it also has a wide data transmission bandwidth. Which means it does not need to compress the digital audio signal coming from the TV and will reproduce as high quality sound as possible. According to the brand, the HW-Q800T has also been precisely tuned by sound experts from Samsung Electronics Audio Labs located in the United States using some very advanced techniques.
Another interesting feature on the soundbar is “Q-Symphony”. This feature will produce richer surround sound and provide a more immersive audio experience by using the TV speakers in conjunction with a soundbar to produce the optimal sound. This special feature granted the brand a CTA “Best of Innovation Award” at CES 2020. Beware Q-Symphony only works with Samsung QLED TV (2020) though.
Finally, as we previously mentioned, the Samsung HW-Q800T soundbar is now officially on sale in South Korea. The price for the more premium model is 900,000 Won, which is around 730 dollars. The Korean giant did not release any info regarding the HW-S600T smaller model though; so we may have to wait a little longer for that.
