Best Soundbar For Samsung TV of 2022

The best soundbars for Samsung TVs that will transform your home sound: no matter how good Samsung's engineering is and it's really good, there are just too many speakers you can fit into a slim, QLED TV or OLED. While some of the best Samsung TVs have impressive speakers inside, they can't deliver the bass sound of a dedicated soundbar - especially if that soundbar also has a subwoofer. 

A soundbar will make your movies more engaging and your music more. Below is our list of the Best Soundbar For Samsung TV of 2022.


Top picks

  1. SAMSUNG HW-Q60T

This is the ultimate home cinema system for Samsung if you want a compact and easy-to-set-up system. The Samsung HW-Q60T is a four-box system - it's the main soundbar that sits under the TV, along with a subwoofer and then two small speakers behind you on the left and right. 

Between them, they provide 11,1.4 channels of audio - that's 11 channels that 'surround' you to provide directional sound, one for the subwoofer and four for height, adding sound above you. Cornered speaker drivers in the soundbar and rear unit deliver sound around the room, creating the audio 'dome' for which the great Dolby Atmos experience is known, and the results are stunning.

  1. SAMSUNG HW-Q800A

If you want something compact but still have a big sound and a wide dynamic range, the Samsung HW-Q800A is what you need. This is a 3.1.2-channel soundbar, which means it aims to add a lot of Dolby Atmos width, height, and impact from its wireless subwoofer. 

With Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, this soundbar features actual upward-facing tweeters, so you get a real wall of sound from it, with impressively positioned sound - with a strong sense of everything that comes from a specific point and the sense of motion sound kinetics. And it's capable of a loud and powerful sound, but also heavily refined.

  1. DENON HOME SOUNDBAR 550

The Denon Home Sound Bar 550 is the ideal soundbar for Samsung tvs if you need something compact (fits 32-inch to 55-inch TVs) that still produces big, cinematic sound. 

This uses six speaker drivers, three passive radiators, and some clever processing to create a sound that seems to go right out to the sides as well as to the ceiling. It supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X to achieve this, and although it doesn't have genuine Atmos height channels, the effect is still noticeable.

  1. SONY HT-G700

This soundbar is a great cinematic upgrade for more compact Samsung TVs - its size fits TVs just 43 inches and up. But the sound feels much bigger than that, thanks to Sony's audio processing tricks. 

The produces really strong widths and can even do a remarkable job of occasionally fooling you into feeling like something is almost coming from behind with Dolby Atmos or 5.1 content.

  1. YAMAHA SR-C20A

The Yamaha SR-C20A sits near the bottom of Yamaha's fairly extensive soundbar lineup, but that doesn't mean it's not capable of doing great things. Given its fairly affordable price tag, it's an extremely impressive performer, which, even if it's more limited in terms of specs, is out of the question. 

For example, only 100W of power is available for the three drivers (two facing the front, one facing up). There aren't any redundant HDMI ports, with TV connectivity handled by a single HDMI eARC socket or one of the two digital optical inputs.

Buying Guide

Budget

First of all, you should think about how much you want to spend on your new soundbar. 

These days you can buy soundbars for under $200, but really high-end models can cost over $2,000 - we've covered a range of prices in this guide, but if you've kept an eye on a soundbar that's more expensive than your budget allows, don't forget that cheap soundbar deals are around all the time, especially between November and January.

Design

Samsung TVs are known for their sleek looks, so you should find a soundbar that matches your TV. Of course, Samsung's own bars are made for this purpose, and many soundbars are designed to disappear. Most can be wall-mounted if that's where your TV is going. 

Consider the size of the set and the size of the soundbar - you don't want a bar that sticks out beyond the edges of your TV (or TV table). And think about whether you're happy with a soundbar (the most compact option) or you want one with a subwoofer for more impact (but that takes up more space).

Placement

If you choose to place the soundbar in front of your TV, make sure it's not so high that it obscures the infrared light from your remote or it even gets in the way of the picture - some TVs stand against other surfaces!

Connection

Remember to consider the type of wired connection your soundbar offers. HDMI is the easiest way to connect a soundbar to a Samsung TV and can handle High-Resolution Audio formats; your TV needs to support HDMI-ARC, which means the audio can travel in both directions along the cable. 


Final Thoughts

Some of the Best Soundbar For Samsung TV do what other soundbars can't. That's because some of Samsung's own soundbars use the TV's internal speakers as part of their surround sound systems. When it's good, it's incredibly good: our current best-selling Samsung TV soundbar uses that to deliver incredibly immersive sound.
