About this deal

The Sonos has a better, more immersive soundstage to make it seem like the action is happening all around you. To be fair, hardly any other soundbars support these new gaming-related features either, and you can always use the Q930B’s support for eARC to pass Dolby Atmos sound to the soundbar from an Xbox Series X, PS5 or high-spec PC that’s been connected directly to an eARC-capable TV. Note: Some items might be in an open box condition, meaning the original packaging may not be pristine. We advise keeping the original packaging for the length of your warranty in case the product has to be sent to a service centre or back to us. The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 with Speakers + Bass Module and the Samsung HW-Q930B are both premium setups with versatile performances that will please most listeners.

The Samsung is a bit better overall, though, as its surround and Atmos channels reproduce sound effects with greater detail and clarity to enhance your movie-watching experience. If you only watch from streaming, that won't make a difference, but it means you lose the best possible quality from 4K Blu-ray players.Any product that is sold to a business or used for business / commercial purposes is classified as a B2B sale and the warranty period is only 1 month from the date of sale. The sound is pretty similar, though the Q930B packs a little more punch in the bass right out-of-the-box. It also means that the Q930B is the right size to work with the best 48, 49 and 50-inch TVs and larger – whereas the Q990B needs to be paired with the best 55-inch TVs and up.

This ‘complete dome of sound’ Atmos point does raise the spectre of the Q930B’s missing rear left and rear right channels compared with the Q990B. It’s worth adding that the Q930B’s Adaptive Sound mode for converting stereo music into a multi-channel mix able to take advantage of the 9. Plus, there's built-in voice assistant support, whereas you have to attach a third-party device to the JBL to control it with your voice. However, while these extra channels do increase the general presence of the rear speakers in the Q990B’s overall sound balance, the Q930B manages to disperse its forward side-channel sounds well enough from the main soundbar not to leave you feeling (unless you have a really huge room) as if there’s a glaring ‘gap’ in the Dolby Atmos sound dome.

Warranty Direct is one of the biggest providers of this type, and is often cheapest for multiple appliance warranties, especially if you've fairly high-value products to cover. It gets louder with less compression at max volume, too, so it's better suited for listening in larger rooms. pdf","osList":null,"areaList":[{"code":"HK","orgCode":"HK"}],"languageList":[{"code":"EN","orgCode":"EN","name":"ENGLISH"}]},{"description":"User Manual","fileName":"AH81-15289K-00_FM_HW-Q930B Q800B Q700B_ZK_L02_220415. One last point worth mentioning here is that since the up-firing and front side-firing drivers in the Q930B system need to bounce their sounds off ceilings and walls respectively, you may find the quality of its sound compromised if you have a vaulted or heavily beamed ceiling, or a large gap (such as a wide doorway) in a side wall.

Probably inevitably for a soundbar that has so much to offer for what is in the circumstances surprisingly little money, the Q930B does come with a compromise or two in tow. With balanced mids, voices and lead instruments are clear and present in the mix, making it suitable for lots of different music genres as well as vocal-heavy TV shows.Automatic switch to Game Mode Pro only works when game consoles (over Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch) are connected to a Samsung TV. The best home cinema experience with Q-Symphony: give your living room the power of cinema with a Samsung TV and Samsung soundbar. Sound seems like it's coming from all around you, rather than just from a speaker placed in front of you.

There's a little extra punch in the bass range to bring bass-heavy genres like hip-hop and EDM to life. Samsung's Smart One Remote Control has the ability to control more than just your soundbar and can connect to multiple compatible devices from TV to set-top box. As with the Q990B, the balance and consistency of the Q930B’s sound seems to benefit from the built-in Space Fit auto calibration system. Adaptive Sound' widens it a little, but it sounds diffused, and sound is forced towards the back of the wall. They must not continue to use the product for the duration until a final outcome has been reached by the card issuer.While they're both very versatile Dolby Atmos soundbars, the Q930B offers more bass right out-of-the-box.
