This is good, but I decided to go with the Samsung q950t since it is 9.1.4, with eARC support. I got it at visions in store for $1399.

To get the best sound possible while taking into consideration their space, their aesthetic, their living room etc. Every damn thread this is asked. Price is irrelevant if you cannot put a 7.1 or 9.1 receiver with tower or bookshelf speaker system, wires running, etc. Sometimes you want better sound than your tv gives. And people can afford more than $500 for soundbars.

I'll reiterate, someone buying this at this price, needs the utility and space of a soundbar for a reason. They could buy a proper receiver and speaker system if they wanted to, but don't or can't. So why is that hard for you and literally every future high end soundbar thread poster asking why someone would pay this much to get?

I'll try to get ahead of a couple things.

- Some people don't have room for a receiver and big speakers

- No, a $200 sound bar does not sound as good as an expensive sound bar.

With that said, I don't know anything about this specific sound bar.

Edit: While I was typing the poster above nailed it.

I was on the fence about soundbars for quite some time, but I splurged on the Sonos "7.1.2" surround system (Arc, two rears, and the sub) when the Arc launched and it's really quite impressive. Worked out to about $18XX or so after discount, and I feel it's been well worth it.

The simplicity of install and not worrying about running wires through my floor or ceiling (as it wasn't done during the build), plus everything being simple to adjust on my phone, is awesome.

Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Also, maybe downvote if it's not a good price for the specific item in question. Not because it's a price that you don't want to pay for a sound bar in general.

Well, virtual surround sound. It wouldn’t hold a candle to a proper 7.1.2 system I’m sure, but it’s a lot more than just a standard sound bar.

Every soundbar thread there are "audiophiles" in complete shock and disgust that people would pay "this much" for a soundbar.

Get over yourselves nobody who is looking for a soundbar cares.

If you have the space then definitely recieved and towers. Way more choice and customization, plus you can upgrade/replace individual components. Also sound bars are in general are jack of all trades, meaning they try to do music, dialogue and movie. With a recieved/speaker setup you can customize more to your predominant use such as music.

Sound bars are awesome for small spaces and/or aesthetics reasons. Clearly there is a huge demand for them, otherwise we wouldn't see so much variety at every price points.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

When I bought a Sony TV recently, they gave me an open box Sony HTST5000 for $750 + tax which turned out to be damaged. I returned it and they gave me a new Sony HTST5000 for same price $750. The best they could give me Samsung HW-Q950T was $1500 + tax. Is the Samsung HW-Q950T worth extra $750?

It's not coz I've tried both. If I got the Sony HTST5000 for $750, I would have jumped at the deal. And just for reference, I have an Onkyo with a 7.2.2 surround sound, which costs twice as much as the soundbar, and the sound is so much better. But this soundbar has a place in my house as well.

Thanks so much, locally there is a pair of Polk audio monitor 70 series 2, asking for $280. is it good enough for sing? What receiver can I pick for them? There is a Yamaha RXV385 for $299 now I am thinking.
