Samsung HW-Q800T sound bar rear speakers or different Soundbar

Greeting all, I purchased a Samsung HW-Q800T soundbar recently as it was on offer at my local John Lewis store and was wondering if some rear speakers would enhance the whole cinematic experience? Will rear speakers be better than just listening in Dolby Atmos or DTS:X?   And if yes; which rear speakers are compatible/best to use with my TV? 

Also; I am linking the soundbar up to a Sony OLED tv in my lounge and the sound is great but would it sound any better if connected up to a Samsung Q65T TV? Only I bought a Q65T TV to put up in my conservatory and i'm wondering if i should just use the Q800T soundbar with the Samsung TV and purchase a separate Sony Soundbar for the lounge?

Best regards

Mark

@MarkAndrews555: The addition of rear speakers can certainly make the audio experience more immersive, but I suppose the proof of the pudding is in the eating where Dolby Atmos or DTS:X are concerned. If you did decide to add rear speakers, then the SWA-9000S are listed as being compatible. To find out more, please check out the link below.

I use a Denon AV Receiver in DTS Neural X mode with my old Sony Component system speakers - 2 main front speakers containing 3 drivers for tweeter, medium and low frequencies, a centre channel speaker and 2 rear speakers. It's awesome for films, live sport and music. Also, it doesn't really matter what brand speakers you use with which TV. The better thing to do is go to somewhere you can try them out like Richer Sounds or similar store with a demo area. Then you won't end up disappointed with rubbish speakers just because they have matching logos to your TV
