I had a chance to test and compare two models: Samsung HW-Q60T vs Klipsch Cinema 600 and this review should help people who are looking for a good soundbar. The Samsung HW-Q60T was rated 5.5, while the Klipsch Cinema 600 has a rating 4.8.
Each of the models under consideration has active amplification type. A noticeable difference is the number of channels that HW-Q60T has 5.1 and Cinema 600 has 3.1. These rivals can be compared in terms of power, 360 (overall) versus 600 (overall) according to devices. The built-in subwoofer is not implemented in any of these models. An external subwoofer connects to the HW-Q60T via wireless, but Cinema 600 has wired connection type. Rate 7 out of 10 received the Samsung HW-Q60T for audio features and specs, but the Klipsch Cinema 600 received 6 out of 10.
