What Is Not on the Box
What the brand doesn’t always tell you…
With a 5.1 channel configuration, the Samsung HW-Q59CT sets itself apart from entry-level and mid-range products. This system, released in 2021, promises DTS Virtual:X content to enliven living rooms and home theaters.
It uses Samsung’s proprietary Acoustic Beam technology to localize objects, giving users an immersive movie-watching experience. Unlike many of the most-popular speakers, it works with Samsung Q-Symphony, pairing with select Samsung TVs.
This system boasts a number of ports, including a shared HDMI ARC+out, full HDMI In, and USB. However, it only streams wirelessly via Bluetooth, and it has a high audio latency, which can be noticed by sensitive users.
Despite having a dedicated subwoofer, the low bass a bit is disappointing. it also has poor surround soundstage and doesn’t support Dolby Atmos, so it’s not ideal for people who relish movies with directional audio.
