Experience True Cinematic Sound with the Samsung Harman Kardon HW-Q90R Soundbar
It’s been a long day at work, and as your car pulls up in the driveway, you can’t wait to get through the front door and take it easy for the rest of the evening.
Making yourself a quick dinner, you plop yourself down in front of the TV console and pick a movie off Netflix. And as the opening theme song plays, you feel your brand-new Samsung Harman Kardon HW-Q90R Soundbar envelop you in a glorious, immersive cushion of sound.
Bring the cinema home
Packing 17 up, front, side and rear-firing speakers, Samsung’s latest 7.1.4-channel piece is an absolute unit of a soundbar. Speaking of which, the “.4” at the end isn’t just for show - it refers to the additional up-firing ports on the speakers. These help to create realistic overhead audio, contributing to a more complete and immersive surround sound package through the main soundbar unit and accompanied by the bundled rear wireless speakers. Even the subwoofer is wirelessly connected, just add power! In a nutshell, the HW-Q90R delivers unparalleled, multi-dimensional sound - creating marvellous cinematic experiences right in your living room.
Feel like you’re part of the scene
The HW-Q90R has Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support, plus Samsung’s Adaptive Sound technology. This is an interesting one; by reading the frequency signal of each scene, the software analyses, adjusts and optimises sound output for maximum effect.
So, what does this mean for users? Simply put, they’ll hear everything as if they were in the scene itself! Watching a documentary on National Geographic? Listen to those cascading waterfalls crash down in the background while David Attenborough’s dulcet tones draw you in. Or perhaps you’re checking out the new cooking show on Food Network and the sound of the sizzling steak instantly transports you to the kitchen studio, with the fragrance of steak wafting through the house. Is there a steakhouse nearby, by any chance?
In any case, that’s only half of what the HW-Q90R has to offer. Have you ever turned down the TV volume at night because your folks were asleep, then realised you couldn’t hear the dialogue clearly and had to rely on subtitles? Indeed, we’ve probably gone through that scenario before, but here comes the HW-Q90R to save the day.
Instead of reducing the output across the board, the soundbar’s intelligent algorithm lowers the background audio while enhancing voice clarity, ensuring that not only can you enjoy the dialogue, but the volume is kept at a comfortable level for everyone else too.
Transform your gaming experience with directional sound
Adding onto the myriad of benefits, the HW-Q90R also sports a dedicated Game Mode1, which automatically detects when a console game is being played and optimises audio for maximum impact.
Strictly speaking, being able to hear sound in space defies the law of physics but Star Wars Battlefront II indulges your auditory senses with an awe-inspiring soundscape. Together with the HW-Q90R’s Game Mode, the immersive sound from the 17 speakers will transport you right into the seat of an X-wing fighter and elevate your gameplay to the next level. It is in such cases that the HW-Q90R’s immersive audio capabilities truly shine. Another key feature of HW-Q90R’s Game Mode is the soundbar’s in-built cross-talk algorithm which can accurately simulate sound from various directions, making for a more enjoyable and realistic gaming experience.
Easy and Smart Connectivity
While immersion is a staple when selecting a soundbar, connectivity is crucial too. The HW-Q90R works seamlessly with your smart devices2 and is a perfect fit for your smart home ecosystem. On top of that, there’s no need to connect it manually when users power it up - the soundbar does that automatically. As the icing on the cake, the HW-Q90R comes with the One Master Remote Control3, and supports Alexa voice-control4 and Bixby5, allowing users to play music, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more with a single spoken command or with the push of a button.
The HW-Q90R Soundbar is a perfect fit for discerning enthusiasts who've no room to fit a conventional audio setup and yet yearn for a larger-than-life audio experience that's also easily lovable by the whole family. It’s not just a heavy hitter, but a versatile one too - a testament to the Samsung Harman Kardon name and its promise of audio excellence.
