Product Overview

HW-Q800T is a 3.1.2-channel soundbar in Samsung's 2020 premium Q-series lineup. It features eight drivers and supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X digital audio processing for a virtual surround experience.
Like other Q-series soundbars, the HW-Q800T activates Q-symphony to play surround sound from both the TV and the soundbar, further improving the listening experience, when paired with Samsung's 2020 QLED TVs.
Owners can purchase compatible rear surround speakers (SWA-9000S) at a later date to obtain the 12-driver, 5.1.4-channel experience.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
At $750, the Q800T isn't cheap, especially when you consider the lack of surround speakers. The subwoofer nearly stole the show, producing some of the best low end I've heard from a soundbar woofer this year. Music playback was also solid, thanks in part to the soundbar's support for a wide variety of formats.

The Samsung HW-Q800T uses Samsung’s Acoustic Beam 2.0 to create the overhead channels. The wide-range tweeters in the front-firing speakers also add width to the the overall presentation, creating an expansive soundstage. The well-integrated subwoofer also lays down a solid foundation of bass that supports the system with improved weight and dynamism.
