Rear speakers for Samsung N850 Soundbar?

I decided not to go with the 950 due to cost restrictions (and I got the 850 for only 500!) but it of course doesn’t come with the rear speakers. I know I can buy the non upward firing rear speakers for it, but that defeats the purpose of the atmos setup I’m going for. Is there anyway to buy the rear speakers that come with the 950? Anyway at all???? Or.. are there somehow some other speakers that would function in their place and be compatible (I know that’s unlikely..). Thanks!

Even if you’re able to purchase it separately, I don’t think you can connect rears from N950 with N850. At least that was not possible with K850. There are probably other rears available for N850, without upfiring. Contact Samsung for options. There were certainly options for K850, since I purchased the rears without upfiring for K850. I ended up with N950.

Question Samsung HW-N850 - any way to get rear atmos speakers?

I got an insane deal on this through Unidays + promo code + Christmas sale (under 700) so I opted to go with this one versus the 950 with the rear upward firing speakers. Question is this - is there ANY way possible to obtain those rear speakers somehow? If it isn't possible, is there ANY third party speakers that will work?


I know I could search eBay for used ones and just sell the unit, buy the other unit, just sell the soundbar, etc... but looking to buy the rears ONLY (not the simple surround ones, but the ones that ship with the 950..)


My last resort will be buying it used off eBay or new, somewhere, and then trying to sell the other part of the unit....


Thanks in advance, folks! I couldn't find anything online..

I have managed to purchase the N950 rears for my N850 like an idiot with researching. I presumed that with the sound bars being the same that they would connect,but they don't. There must be a way to get the N950 firmware onto the n850 soundbar and maybe this would solve the issue. Any advice?

Samsung is a business. The ATMOS rears are only compatible with the 950 so if you want them, you have to get the 950. Otherwise, yes, it would make sense to buy the cheaper 850 and purchase the ATMOS rears separately. I would have tried that myself if it was possible lol

Has anybody got the N850 rear speakers - are they worth getting?

Makes senses that the N950 rear speakers (with upfiring Atmos drivers) will not work with N850 - as previous poster has pointed out this would be a loss maker for Samsung and negate the need to pay full price for N950.

My question is whether anybody has got the supported rear speakers with the N850 and whether they consider them to be a worthwhile addition?

I only got my N850 yesterday and am really impressed with the illusion of surround sound that it can produce without rear speakers (mush better than the Sony HTIS100 5.1 system it replaces) but I really want to know whether it's worth the extra £150 to get the rears as well.

Does anybody know whether any other wireless rear speakers would work or is it only Samsung gear that is compatible?
