Pros and Cons
Pros5

The sound is précis, crisp and clear. The lows are rumbling and thumping. The sound that comes out of it is amazing and gives the overall surround sound impression.

This is my 1st soundbar and it didn't disappoint me. I have another bose soundbar downstairs that really sold me on their sound quality. If you are using optical cable then there is an option in the bose music app to turn on soundbar automatically if ...  Read More

The bose is exactly what i wanted. At least it's portable enough to move around so that's a plus. The recommend distance/requirement of 30 ft is accurate, so ensure they are this distance or less from each other.

Comes with hdmi cable,optical, power and i/r remote. The only “con” i have noticed is that if i pause or sit on my roku menu for over 20 minutes the bar does tend to fall asleep and i have to hit the power button again on the remote to wake it up.

Bose soundbar 600 has built in google assistant and alexa assistant. Bose music app lets you control the music, volume, and mute mic from your phone. Audio sync with the tv or among the speakers is also available.

Cons3

Soundbar is very difficult to set up with lg c1 tv. The microphones for alexa integration are hot garbage. Why do they insist on installing alexa on a sound bar?

I legit have trouble getting it to work 99% of the time. It's completely insane how hard it is to find the magical combination of fiddling with it that will make it work. It is literally the only device that can't stay connected to wifi.

This one misses the mark completely! It’s 16 months old, barely used in my study and now a paperweight. Connectivity is also terrible. Rebought both items again from best buy for $120 cheaper and still had same issues.

Pros5

This is one of the very few soundbars that uses a hdmi mini connector. Has bluetooth connection and alexa built in. The s800b is designed to deliver 3.

The setup process is easy, and you can do it completely offline if you wish. Setting up a wireless connection is a cinch. The instructions are not great, but it's simple enough to understand. Very easy setup.

Subwoofer is a great addition that many of the competitors don't have. Press the top or bottom of the ring surrounding the play/pause button to adjust the treble and bass levels. The bass box is a small square that is compact yet powerful.

It's a bit more expensive than my other soundbars, but i think it's worth it because it outshines all the others for sure. Fit great, didn't interfere with remote control on tv. And nuance is defined.

The difference between just the q90a speakers and combining them with the 60b sound bar is night and day. Summing up the samsung hw-s60b (identical to the 61b which is white) is an outstanding audio experience. It looks nice, and pairs nicely with my ...  Read More

The manual is helpful but not good. Needing an app to do anything at all related to the basic function is dumb. The use of mini hdmi is a bad choice. Buy a more affordable soundbar or invest in home audio.

It drops its wifi connection whenever the unit sleeps or powers off. When it reconnects, it haphazardly connects to whichever of my satellites it wants. That same button gives it back when you reach woofer max, which is too low.
