Samsung HW-Q60T 5.1-Channel Soundbar w/ Wireless Subwoofer

MSRP 500 USDNEX score 31%

Product Overview

HW-Q60T is a 5.1-channel soundbar with wireless subwoofer in Samsung's 2020 premium Q-series lineup, among which it is the only model without Dolby Atmos support.
The subwoofer unit in the HW-Q60T is identical to that of the HW-Q70T. It can also be supplemented with wireless rear surround speakers, though a different model (SWA-8500S) without up-firing drivers (and hence Dolby Atmos compatibility) is supported, because the HW-Q60T does not offer Atmos support.
Like other 2020 Q-series soundbars, the HW-Q60T 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.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Samsung HW-Q60T is very good for dialogue-centric content like TV shows. Out-of-the-box, it reproduces a punchy bass, though its overall sound profile can also sound a bit dark and veiled. Its surround performance isn't very immersive, and it doesn't support Dolby Atmos content.
