Samsung HW-A950A powered 11.1.4-channel sound bar system

The HW-Q950A looks sleek and modern while delivering powerful 11.1.4-channel surround sound with its included wireless sub and Atmos-enabled surround speakers.

A full Atmos sound system

The Samsung HW-Q950 brings the sound alive around you, pulling you deeper into your favorite movies and video games. Dedicated side-firing drivers provide wraparound effects while full-range up-firing drivers bounce sound off your ceiling down to your listening position. This package also includes a pair of rear surround speakers to deliver true surround sound. The rear speakers have up-firing drivers as well, doubling down on an immersive Dolby Atmos experience.

Plus you get some handy modern touches, like built-in Alexa voice control. And the included subwoofer adds deep rumble when things start to get really exciting.

"Alexa, play Billy Idol"

With Alexa built-in, you can control the sound bar system with just your voice. You can also ask Alexa to play music, check the weather, or even snag recipes while you're cooking. Can't remember how much flour to add to your biscuits? You can sort that out with Alexa — or just wing it while "Rebel Yell" plays in the background.

Designed to work together

If you have a Samsung QLED TV, you'll benefit from a complementary design and simplified setup. You can control and adjust the settings for both the TV and the sound bar with the Samsung TV's remote. With SpaceFit Sound+, your compatible Samsung TV will also calibrate the sound bar's audio signals for added clarity and immersion based on your specific room.

Samsung's Q-Symphony feature takes this a step further by integrating the sound bar's audio with compatible Samsung TVs. Once they're synced together with a wired connection, the speakers in the TV and sound bar will work in harmony to create a more enveloping experience.

HDMI makes it easy

The bar's HDMI connections allow 4K video passthrough with support for HDR10 and HDR10+ (High Dynamic Range), so you'll be able to maintain a high-contrast Ultra HD picture from your Blu-ray player or video game console through to your TV. The bar also supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), so it can receive uncompressed audio signals — including Dolby Atmos — from an eARC-equipped TV.

Catch the quiet moments

Quiet conversations can sometimes get lost in the mix of a movie's soundtrack. We've all strained our ears at some point to catch important lines. The HW-Q950A has a dedicated center channel to improve dialogue, and its Active Voice Amplifier analyzes the program's audio signal to make dialogue easier to hear.

Wireless convenience

The included subwoofer adds punch to the low end, and it's slim and wireless for easy placement. The rear surround speakers are wireless as well, adding two rear channels and two Atmos channels to your sound bar system without running wire all over your room. You only need to plug in to an AC outlet and pair them up.

Connect with Bluetooth or AirPlay 2

The HW-Q950A's built-in Bluetooth can wirelessly stream your favorite tunes from your phone directly to the sound bar. You can also stream from a Mac® or iOS® devices like an iPhone® or iPad® using Apple AirPlay 2. If you're looking to minimize cord clutter, you can even use the sound bar's Bluetooth to receive a stereo signal from a compatible Samsung TV.

Play your favorite songs with just a tap

Have you ever wanted to just "boop" your phone on a speaker and have it magically play your favorite playlist? It seems like science fiction, but that's exactly what the HW-Q950A allows you to do with compatible Samsung mobile devices (requires Android™ OS 8.1 and higher). Welcome to the future.

Gaming friendly

Game Pro mode automatically tunes directional sounds to match the game space, including overhead effects, so you don't miss important audio cues while you play. This helps keep you competitive and makes your playing sessions more immersive.
