At first glance, the Q950A is similar to the 2020HW-Q950T. But if you look closely, the two wireless speakers in the rear are slightly different. The size of both speakers is the same, but new drivers have been added on both sides and the lines and surface treatments have been somewhat fixed which looks more sleek.
The way they manage to install the three powerful drivers on one speaker that can be carefully placed on a bookshelf or sideboard feels like an impressive engineering achievement.
However, if you put them on a bookshelf, keep in mind that you need enough space on the top and outward edges of the back and front to take benefit from all the carrying channels they carry.
The top and front edges of the main soundbar are finished with black felt and the edges are decorated with an attractive metal grille effect.
This fabric has a habit of collecting dust and fluff from environment and probably can tear if abused. However, using a small thin layer of chromatography should give you a fairly primitive look.
The soundbar is slim enough to fit under most TVs without capturing the image or blocking the TV’s IR receiver. The subwoofer is the only massive part of the package, but I don’t tend to complain about it. The main reason is the old 8-inch driver who can draw bass from the right side.
As you’d expect from a high-end soundbar, the Q950A includes a small display that helps you to keep track of the selected inputs, volume used, and much more.
Unfortunately, Samsung thinks it appropriate to place this LED on top of the soundbar rather than the front.
Therefore, you can only read it when you standing or bending over your knees.
Probably, someone at Samsung thinks that we are couch potatoes and need some exercise. LOL…
