Samsung HW-S800B review: a slim Dolby Atmos soundbar with big audio power

Samsung HW-S800B: Two-minute review

To read this Samsung HW-S800B review is to discover a problem solver. And the problem is size. In their efforts to look cool and minimalist, some TVs keep their screens very low on their stands. This is great, unless you want a big beefy soundbar, because when it sits in front of the TV, it can end up cutting off the bottom of the screen from your view when you’re sitting on the sofa. This isn’t a hypothetical – it’s exactly the situation this reviewer has been in. 

But the Samsung HW-S800B cancels this problem. Its whole trick is that it packs in multiple speaker angled speakers and big sound to rival the best soundbars, but the soundbar is approximately a quarter of the physical volume of the class-leading Sonos Arc. That’s supplemented by a fairly small subwoofer, to add the low-end grunt that a compact soundbar unit can’t.
