Lastly, there’s built-in Alexa and support for Airplay2. Other devices can use the tap sound feature to mirror mobile audio to the soundbar.

A series for the budget spenders

A series sits somewhere between the Q and the S series and provides a healthy number of options across pretty much all price brackets.

They come with Dolby Audio and DTS Virtual:X support, a Bass Boost feature, inbuilt subwoofers and support the One remote feature which allows users to control the soundbar with a Samsung TV remote. There’s also a feature called Adaptive Sound Lite which optimises the sound according to the TV content.

S series, the all in one

The S series only features one soundbar model at the moment which features a side horn speaker with the acoustic beam. Acoustic beam has multiple up-firing holes where each hole is a speaker in itself. The side horn speakers act like megaphones to amplify the sound.

Both these features combine to form a surround sound experience in an all-in-one factor. The soundbar is wrapped in fabric to blend in with most interiors and has built-in Alexa. There’s also support for Airplay2 and Tap Sound like the Q series.

The series has only one model, the S61A which is available for INR 47,990.
