HDMI good if u got ARC connections. More convenient if using ARC cos One remote does all the controls.

Sound wise I feel not much different. I’m also using LG magic remote, my sound bar is Sony HT-ST5000.

Let us know how’s the Atmos performance. Interested 2 get also but tested twice in stores but can’t feel any Atmos. Den realize probably demo media no Atmos coz didn’t rem seeing the Atmos text pops up on soundbar.

Hi

Bought the N950 SB during COMEX recently, delivered on Monday. Have been playing it for the last few days. It was easy to setup. Just need to power up the sub and rear speakers, and are connected automatically to the soundbar.

Connected sony UBP x700 to HDMI 1 (for movies and netflix) and TV to HDMI ARC. The sound / dialog is clear and focus, the rear speakers come alive when needed, the sub is powerful (only set to 0). Thoroughly enjoy the movies from netflix. Download Dobly Atmos sound tracks from internet, the sound is awesome! The SB is heavy and the build is solid. Feel nice and good.

Not bad playing music from spotify, set sound mode to SMART for better sound effect for both movies and music (better sound stage).

So far, quite happy with the purchase in terms of sound and build quality.

Waiting for the 4k bluray disc to arrive to experience the Dobly Atmos and DTS X.
