    Not exactly a bargain price, I paid £249 for the Q600A from costco in March and then had £200 cashback on top making it £50.

    yes but that was silly season

    just sold, as new, S61a for below £99 - could not accept it on a kitchen TV preferring the quality of a Sky soundbox to it. Nearly as disappointing as the Sonos beam system in Lounge. If you like these then HOT deal. Good Luck. (edited)

    People love the beam and I found it disappointing as well especially for the price whereas s61a for 100 was decent for the price. The s61b is just the same so glad I only paid 75.

    Got these for £45-70 ish in a cashback deal. Wouldn’t be worth more than £100 imo

    lack of bass is the main issue but the actual mids and highs are very good and rtings scores it much the same as the sonos beam. The bass is what disappoints most people but meant to be used with the matching sub.

    It's definitely worth paying the extra £70 for Q600A. Unless you have no room for the sub.
    As with regards to this model, got 2 a year ago via cashback, and it took me forever to get £100 for each. You'll find them on ebay for about £150 brand new, or on bidding used ones closer to £100. £210 for this, marked as clearance, is not cheap. Neither the q600a. (edited)

    the rear speakers which can update later go nicely with the q600a

    Both Samsung bars aren't really worth these prices in my opinion, not just because of previous sales/ cashback deals, but the sound quality alone.
    If I paid this for the q600 I would not be happy with the product

    I had a Yamaha bar 400 soundbar connected to the TV- much better than the TV speakers, used it mostly for music listening.
    bought a 40 year old JVC hifi from some used store for a few quid.
    sounds better than any soundbar I've ever heard (listened to them all before I chose the Yamaha because it was the best sounding one musically)

    Soundbars are a con. I think we got conditioned to tinny crappy mobile phone and TV speaker sounds, whilst back in the day, everyone had a hifi and knew good sound (edited)

    Using a soundbar as primarily a music listening device is like using a smart car as a delivery van, its the wrong tool for the job. They are supposed to replace rubbish built-in TV speakers and they're typically tuned for clear dialogue and effects rather than music. They're also compromised by the form factor (long and thin) so they can't contain larger mid-bass drivers that you'd want for music.

    The hifi system will also take a lot more space, look ugly and consume a lot more power.

    If you want to listen to music you're better off buying a system geared towards that. I reckon your JVC hi-fi isn't even that good compared to a decent modern music system. Good place to start is a Denon micro hi-fi and some entry level speakers (e.g. Dali Oberon) and you won't regret it. (edited)
