Thanks for making some very helpful points. I was on my way to buy a receiver, cable, and speakers (much to the distress of my sig other) when I finally noticed something concrete about the new Samsung being offered. After spending a week getting transferred all over Samsung's universe, I finally learned enough about the product to enter it in the running. But thanks to your comment, I began to remember some of the glitches with the earlier versions
of the HW-N
950. Can you clarify? Did Samsung finally fix the problems after a year of complaints from owners, i.e., they were painfully slow; OR, are the problems still
evident? OR, although it took some time, Samsung eventually fixed everything, to the happiness of owners everywhere??
Obviously, I am not too anxious to buy a product which is going to cause me more aggravation. And if the soundbar won't be available until June (more speculation that I read somewhere), that means waiting another 2 - 4 months on top of that before all the reviews come in. Sigh - I cannot believe that it has been an entire year
since I bought my new LG OLED TV, and I STILL cannot find what I am looking for re: sound (both Atmos & dts:x enabled) in my price range. (And ignoring the obvious - for a retail price of $5,000, one would think a TV would arrive with a relatively decent sound component.)
Enuf ranting...If you have a minute to address the previous versions of the HW-N
950, it would be appreciated!
