Samsung HW-S60T 4.0-Channel Soundbar

MSRP 330 USDNEX score 61%

Product Overview

Samsung HW-S60T is an entry-level 4.0-channel all-in-one soundbar. It supports Dolby Audio and DTS Digital Surround and is compatible with SWA-8500S wireless rear speakers.
The HW-S60T features two side-firing horn speakers with Samsung Acoustic Beam that provide room-filling surround sound. They complement two tweeters and two woofers in an all-in-one design that is easy to place in any modern room. Aiding this is the Kvadrat fabric wrapping.
Samsung's SWA-8500S wireless rear speakers can be purchased separately to create a fuller surround sound experience.
There's also a more affordable, 2.0-channel model that shares the same design, the HW-S40T, by Samsung.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Samsung HW-S60T is alright for mixed use. While this soundbar lacks thump and rumble, it delivers punchy bass and a neutral mid and treble, which is suitable for podcasts or audiobooks. If you're looking for more bass, Samsung sells a compatible wireless subwoofer separately.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Well-balanced and neutral mid and treble-range
  • Graphic EQ plus three presets
  • Good soundstage that sounds slightly wider than the bar itself and it's pretty focused
  • Great for dialogue and TV shows
Cons
  • Some compression artifacts at max volume
  • Lacks thump and rumble

Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
Samsung HW-S60T is a wireless soundbar with a wireless subwoofer. It has five drivers (four woofers and a central tweeter), and three passive radiators for bass. Amazon Alexa voice control is available too (Samsung seems to have quietly consigned its Bixby voice assistant to the bin marked ‘3D TV and other failures') There's a banana-shaped remote control that features just enough buttons.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Lots of control options
Cons
  • Not as punchy as it might be
  • No Dolby Atmos

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The HW-S60T is configured to fit into smaller spaces. Samsung’s integrated Acoustic Beam technology fires up for more height. Connections are few - HDMI ARC and optical inputs. HDMI CEC control is also possible, and file support covers AAC, MP3, FLAC, OGG and WAV.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Attractive design
  • Comfortable to use
  • Supports Atmos, DTS:X, Q Symphony and 4K HDR
Cons
  • No Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos
  • No Atmos support
