THE SAM­SUNG HW-N950 is some­thing spe­cial. It’s the lat­est flag­ship sound­bar from the com­pany, but the first to ben­e­fit from Sam­sung’s ac­qui­si­tion of Har­man Kar­don – a part­ner­ship that’s al­ready pay­ing div­i­dends.

The HW-N950 is a whole-hearted up­grade on our pre­vi­ous award-win­ner, Sam­sung’s HW-K950 – which long held the #6 spot on this list. Most im­por­tantly, the N950 now sup­ports both Dolby At­mos and DTS:X, com­pared to the K950 which was dis­ap­point­ingly lim­ited to the for­mer.

With that in mind, the Sam­sung HW-N950 is sim­ply one of the best soundbars that we have heard to date – and one of the only soundbars that re­ally de­liv­ers a 7.1.4-chan­nel im­mer­sive au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence. The use of wire­less rear speak­ers and a sub­woofer, make the N950 easy to in­stall and setup and al­low the N950 to de­liver ob­ject-based au­dio as the con­tent cre­ators in­tended, with­out re­sort­ing to psy­choa­cous­tic trick­ery.
