Infographic explains Samsung’s journey and achievements in the soundbar segment


Last updated: September 3rd, 2020 at 08:50 UTC+01:00

Samsung entered the soundbar segment in 2008 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US. Since then, the company has released various groundbreaking products, soundbars with industry-first technologies, and went on to become the top soundbar brand in the world. Now, the company has published a new infographic that explains its journey and achievements in the soundbar segment.

The company’s first soundbar was the HT-X810, and it was the first soundbar in the world with a built-in DVD player and a wireless subwoofer. In 2009, Samsung released the HT-BD8200 soundbar which was the first in the industry with an inbuilt Blu-ray player. The HW-E550, which was released in 2012, was the first soundbar that could split audio into the left and right channels. In 2013, the South Korean firm released the HW-F750 and the HW-F751 that featured a tube amplifier for classic audio tuning.

Samsung released the world’s first curved soundbar, the HW-H7500/7501, in 2014. Its first Dolby Atmos soundbar with 5.1.4 channel audio, the HW-K950, was released in 2016. Earlier this year, the HW-Q800T was released. It debuted with Samsung’s new Q-Symphony audio technology that can work in harmony with a Samsung TV so that the audio is released from both the soundbar and the TV at the same time for an immersive experience.

In July 2020, the company released the world’s first soundbar with 9.1.4 channel audio and Dolby Atmos compatibility. Samsung’s HW-Q950T features a front speaker with top firing speakers, two separate rear channel speakers with additional top-firing drivers, and a wireless subwoofer. Samsung has been the leader of the soundbar segment for six years in a row.
