In 2022, you won’t find a more discreet soundbar than the Samsung HW-S800B. At 3.8 cm high and 3.9 cm deep, it can be discreetly placed in front of a TV without the risk of obscuring the image.

A configuration that offers a reproduction of 3.1.2 channels: three channels for horizontal spatialization, another two for vertical spatialization and one last for bass.
