Samsung HW Q600B has a width of 1,030mm. A soundbar's width indicates the horizontal dimension of a device, soundbars are sometimes designed to match the width of television sets or get close.
Samsung HW Q800B, at 1,110mm is wider than the Samsung HW Q600B by mm
Samsung HW Q600B measures to a height of 57mm. Height represents the vertical dimension of a soundbar, soundbars are commonly designed as thin as possible to aesthetically complement a space.
Samsung HW Q800B, at 60mm rises higher than the Samsung HW Q600B with a difference 3mm
Samsung HW Q600B weighs 3,800g. We recommend a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to shift around the space.
Lighter home appliances are advantageous, as it makes their movement easier, even say for many other types of products.
Samsung HW Q800B, at 5,100g weigh more than the Samsung HW Q600B by g. Often a genuine quality system is a little bit heavier than average quality products though If you want to change the position of the soundbar after some time, then you should try to purchase a lighter soundbar.
The quantity of three-dimensional space occupied by the product's chassis or, to keep it simple, the space the product occupies. Samsung HW Q600B takes up 6,164.55cm³, it is important to know the space that a soundbar takes up just so as to ensure that it will easily fit in the available space .
Samsung HW Q800B's volume is 7,992cm³ meaning it requires more space than the Samsung HW Q600B with a difference of cm³
The depth of Samsung HW Q600B is 105mm, to know the thickness of the soundbar you divide its volume by the soundbar's surface area(length by width)
Samsung HW Q800B has a thickness of 120mm, meaning that it is thicker than the Samsung HW Q600B by 15mm
For surround sound channels, you’re going to run across figures in such formats as X.X two-digit, or X.X.X three-digit the first number defines the total of main speakers, the second number defines the number of subwoofers, and the third number if available defines the total of “height” speakers.
NOTE: "Height" speakers are usually placed on the ceiling of the room that has the soundbar, but they may as well be upward-firing speakers inside the soundbar itself.
The Samsung HW Q600B having a sound output value of 3.1.2 implies that it has 3 main speakers, 1 subwoofer and 2 "height" speaker
Well as the Samsung HW Q800B having 5.1.2 implies that it has 5 main speakers, 1 subwoofer and 2 "height" speaker
Samsung HW Q600B has an audio output power of 360W, basing on the total of speakers and their power in watts. It is the power the soundbar speakers can "comfortably" be loaded.
To get a better understanding of how loud any speaker can get, there are other features to factor in such as sensitivity, sound pressure, etc.
The Samsung HW Q600B supports APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. Its bit rate ranges between 279kbps and 420kbps.
Samsung HW Q600B supports AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It transfers 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Samsung HW Q600B will work well with your iPhone. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well
The Samsung HW Q800B supports AAC as well. Made to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC all round achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
The Samsung HW Q600B has an HDMI output port, devices with an HDMI or mini HDMI port can connect high-definition audio.
Samsung HW Q800B too has HDMI port through which it outputs "feed" audio into the HDMI inputs of other digital devices, which can process these signals.
Samsung HW Q600B has 2 HDMI ports, more HDMI ports mean that you can connect at the same time numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
Samsung HW Q800B has 2 HDMI ports, meaning both devices have an equal number of ports
Samsung HW Q600B supports Bluetooth, a wireless technology which allows you to easily transfer data between different devices.
Both the Samsung HW Q800B and the Samsung HW Q600B have Bluetooth, which means both devices to support data exchange with compatible devices placed in close proximity using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Samsung HW Q600B has a Bluetooth version of 5.2
Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that allows devices such as computers, and mobile devices .i.e smartphones and wearables to connect and interact with other devices on the internet, the Samsung HW Q600B can connect to Wi-Fi.
Samsung HW Q800B too can connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Samsung HW Q600B has an HDMI version of 2, newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.
S/PDIF is an interface used to transmit digital audio with high fidelity.
The Samsung HW Q800B and the Samsung HW Q600B have S/PDIF out ports
Before you needed to connect an optical cable from your TV to the optical input of an audio device on top of the already connected HDMI cable If you don't want to use your TV's speakers and would rather have everything play through a soundbar, now with ARC you can easily connect all these at a go from a compatible HDMI socket on your TV to an HDMI ARC socket on your soundbar.
HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) carries audio over HDMI. ARC is only capable of carrying compressed 5.1 audio, but eARC has higher bandwidth and can carry uncompressed 7.1 audio, as well as formats such as DTS:X and full bitrate Dolby Atmos. It is available on the Samsung HW Q600B
Samsung HW Q800B has the HDMI ARC/EARC
Samsung HW Q600B is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, allowing you to use voice commands to control the device from other Alexa-compatible devices.
Samsung HW Q800B is compatible with Alexa
Spotify Connect allows you to control the music playing on the soundbar from the Spotify app on another device when the devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Samsung HW Q800B has Spotify connect
Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology that allows sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects. Samsung HW Q600B has Dolby Atmos, which allows them to have immersive, 360-degree sound.
Samsung HW Q800B has it too, Atmos theoretically means you'll be able to hear, say birds chipping from above or a plane moving from over your head into the distance like it would be in a natural environment.
DTS:X is an object-based surround sound technology that allows filmmakers to place and move individual sounds around your listening space, giving you a theater-like audio experience.
More like Dolby Atmos as it aims to create a multi-dimensional sound that "places you at the center of the action", it differs from Dolby Atmos by the required speaker configuration. Samsung HW Q600B has DTS:X
Samsung HW Q800B too has DTS:X just remember to configure the speakers.
