Can't wait to hear what you think. I went to Bestbuy but they only had them boxed, no display to sample.

So far I'm liking this soundbar.
Hope with future firmware updates it will only get better.

Pros:
Treble, bass, and volume adjustments
Equalizer, need the app
Worked out of the box!!!

Cons:
Only one music service, Intune
No ethernet,wireless only
No Aux in port
USB service only
No full manual on the Samsung web site.
Did a chat and they are going to email it to me.

Have rear surrounds coming on Tuesday.

I have tried other sound bar and they all had their issues.

Yamaha ATS-4080 38" 2.1
Sony - 2.1-Channel Soundbar System with 6.3" Wireless Subwoofer
Vizio SB36512-F6 36" 5.1.2
LG SKC9 47" 5.1.2
Bose Soundbar 500 and Bose Bass Module 500
Sony - 3.1 Ch Hi-Res Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer

If you mind me asking what did you find wrong with the Sony - 3.1 Ch Hi-Res Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer? The Sony is one of my top three I'm trying to pick from.

Lots of features, some I don't think I would us.
Had a issue with every word that ended in "s" was really sharp.
Did a factory reset, didn't help.
Then It started to lower the volume by it self 1 or 2 levels every hour.
I was done, bought the HW-Q70R, less features but the wife is happy

Can you confirm you have wireless rear surround speakers connected to HW-Q70R and if so which ones?

Went from the q70r to a ms650 and paired it with w700 sub for 40$ more absolutely blows the q70 away

Sure, that's a $400-500 sub when many of us got our Q70R setup for under that during BF sales with cash back on top... but I have noticed that the Q70R sub can hit *massively* if you dial in right, maybe firmware updates since you posted help, when watching Atmos content the thing just assaults you the car crash scene at the beginning of Dark Phoenix, wow!

Anyone have an issue with - suddenly - a Samsung TV (75" 90 model)not recognizing (cannot be seen in the menu) the Samsung Q70R Soundbar? My soundbar is on, but the TV reverts to "TV sound".

Possible resolvable issues?
