Interesting observation: if you look at the forums main page under soundbars it shows the 950 forum consistently hovering in the top quartile as to posting activity. There are almost 100,000 posts in this 950 forum. This has to show samsung that with this kind of interest . . . this level of activity blows away all the other soundbar brands).
For one this shows that there probably is an excess of problems that samsung has to address.
and two, that maybe they actually will put out the DTS update (I doubt it because samsung does not make good decisions from my experience). But they may be forced to because DTS is such a large part of the market and competitors are sure to come out with soundbars that decode both DTS and Atmos.
My experience with tech product companies is they will build fixes into their next models forcing people to upgrade.
What they fail to factor in is that when people are unhappy with the 950 rather than buy the next model they simply switch their loyalties to another brand. I have mostly samsung branded audio/visual products. If this 950 does not get updates to improve various issues I for one am done with samsung products. This carries over to their appliances and smart phones. I would never buy any of their other products again after all the issues they have.
Side note: my daughter a few months back, bought a new samsung washer and dryer for her new home. Her baby was 3 months old and then she gets a recall letter that the washer lids have been blowing up off the top of the washer. can you imagine if she was holding her baby at the time. We told lowes to pick them both up and get them out of her house and replace them with LG products at no charge which they gladly did.
Before that some samsung smart phones were catching fire. They replaced that model with a corrected model and then some of those were catching fire.
With almost 1000,000 posts in this forum, unless they put out a DTS update at some point rather than force consumers into their next $1500 model and also address the 950's other issues, I think a lot of consumers feel the same way about ever "making another samsung product purchase".
Anyone else feel from their 950 experience, that they are done with "all other" samsung future product purchases??? This is the only way these stubborn tech companies listen. Money talks to them, the potential loss of future sales talk to them.
And I'm happy with my 950 purchase. The updates they put through months ago have solved my previous issues. But I've been a poster in this forum almost from the intro of the 950 and I feel bad for so many of the members here always having the same issues that samsung simply does not address. They make beautiful looking products (my whole family has only bought samsung tv's for many years) but with this 950 service after the sale . . . sucks!
They have the audacity to only have 1 or 2 service centers that work on this 950 soundbar and then have the consumer to pay like $150 to ship it back and then don't even fix it. This should be a class action suit for owners like the post above this post. She has been getting screwed by samsung for a long time from what I see of all her posts
