Pros and Cons
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.

One remote control (cable stb) works all three devices. Better sound by turning off hdmi control, bluetooth standby and bluetooth. Sounds better with child lock off and auto power standby off. Plugged in, plugged in optic cable, changed audio input on...  Read More

Clear voice is definitely noticeable. It helps a ton with hearing dialog. Tv / movies also come through with rich and clear sound (and distinct dialogue that's not drowned out by background music.

While not bose level sound, it packs good rich sound for movies & music in a small package at a fair price. Great surround sound and fantastic bass. Bass is adjustable and believe me, it has plenty of bass!

Standard settings are perfect. Everything is synced. Even over bluetooth. Game mode makes the music all encompassing.

Cons1

There's more bass, sure, but there's little clarity and music sounds muffled. The sound bar's functionality is horrible.
