Worked great while it worked
Bought this a month ago and it worked great for a while. My TV audio is set up through bluetooth and so is my phone to play music. The sound bar audio stutters every 5-10 seconds now. It’s unbearable. It’s fully mounted to my stone wall so it’s not going to be easy to replace this. Samsung has no info on how to factory reset this device so I can’t even try that. Disappointed for such a high price item.

WOW OUTSTANDING SOUND!!
Just got this Soundbar. Once you get it configured to your liking it’s amazing. Using the HDMI ARC is the best way you will get the best sound. I connected it to my XBOX ONE and Purchased the DOLBY ATMOS APP. It’s a one time payment of 14.99 or you can try it for free for 30 days. I put a 4k Blu-ray and wow it’s like I am in the AMC Prime theater. Was really good Complete Theater sound. Didn’t even have to turn up the volume at level 20 and it’s already loud. Defiantly worth it. Got it in a good deal when it was on sale. Great overall Dolby ATMOS sound is the best hands down!!

I have this soundbar paired with a set of Samsung SWA-9000S wireless rear channel speakers and let me tell you. I will never go back to a traditional surround sound system! This system has far exceeded my expectations. Clarity at all levels of volume, balanced bass, and brilliant mids and highs. With 13 drivers there’s not a dull spot to sit in our living room. This soundbar will completely fill a 28×32 room with pure audio bliss. I highly recommend this soundbar and subwoofer. Pair with the above listed rear channel speakers and you will be amazed!

I purchased through Amazon and it was just delivered. I live in a 4th floor apartment and had hoped that UPS would deliver, they bring deliveries to my apartment door. But the USPS delivered leaving it downstairs in the mail room. Fortunately I have a hand truck that I keep in a storage room. I really needed it, this thing is a beast. Just the sound bar itself is heavier than any other one I’ve ever messed with. Everything paired up with no issue. I have a Sony XBR930D tv and its remote as well as my Fios dvr remote can adjust the volume on the bar.
I don’t have the expertise of some, I can only judge based on comparing this to my existing Samsung soundbar, a K550 that I purchased in January of 2017. I had no real complaints about it but the difference with this Q80 is absolutely stunning. I’ve not changed any default settings or modes other than volume. I was extremely impressed from the second I turned it on, even before plugging in the subwoofer. I think many would be very pleased even without the subwoofer. I do keep the woofer behind our seating position, our couch. I did this previously to add some depth and somewhat make up for no rear speakers. Honestly with this thing I would never bother with rear speakers. Again, this is no technical review, I’m watching the movie Red on TNT this afternoon and I’ve been amazed. The voices are so clear that my concern about this when watching movies may never be an issue even without trying the other modes. There is no Night mode which I had used on the old bar to make dialogue better when watching movies without cranking the volume way up. It was recommended to me to try the Adaptive mode on the Q80 to deal with this but that may not be necessary from what I’ve heard so far.
My knowledge is pretty basic and my needs are fairly simple but this thing is awesome.

Great sound but.
The good stuff sound was clean base was full and setup was easy
now the bad only 3 sound presets pop jazz classical no rap or rock what up with that i real hope Samsung adds it in a update more bad news if you own a tv with HDMI 2.1 the pass though will down grade it 2.0 I don’t under stand why Samsung would do this with there flagship soundbar line so if you have a Xbox one or plan to get the new Xbox coming next your you are going to have to plug the Xbox into the TV and not the sound bar i’m on the fence about sending it back over this.

Good sound bar but.
It sounds great but I’m not happy to find out there is no Way HDMI 2.1 pass though so if you have a Xbox one x or plan to get the new Xbox coming next year don’t buy this I’m thinking about sending it back for you to get the benefit of the 2.1 connection you have to plug in your Xbox to your tv and not the sound bar Samsung why would you make your high end sound bar with out this your 8k TVs have HDMI 2.1
