SWA-9000S vs. SWA-8500S for HW-Q70R soundbar

Hello

 

I have a Samsung HW-Q70R soundbar. I know that the rear speakers SWA-8500S are compatible. I also saw that officially the newer speakers SWA-9000S are not compatible but some people reported that they work with the HW-Q70R soundbar.


Can somebody confirm that the SWA-9000S are compatible with the HW-Q70R soundbar?

What is the difference between the SWA-8500S and SWA-9000S? Which one is better to buy? I'm from Germany and the SWA-8500S are cheaper than the SWA-9000S but I think the SWA-9000S are newer.

@Helveticus: I had a look into this for you, and other Community members have reported that the SWA-9000S speakers work fine with the HW-Q70R sound bar: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/Audio-Video/Could-you-make-the-SWA-9000s-Rear-Speakers-work-with...

Hope this helps.

Thank you Andrew.

 

What is then the difference between the SWA-8500S and SWA-9000S? The SWA-9000S is around $50 more expensive in my region.

The 8500s have been around for quite a while. They are the best speakers for your Soundbar.

The 9000s are for the Sound+ range with the integrated subs from last year. We have had reports that these speakers will work with your Soundbar, but of course we cannot guarantee this.

In terms of audio and audio quality is there a difference between 8500s and 9000s? That means is it worth spending more money for the 9000s or will I not hear any difference in quality and volume?

I seems like the SWA 8500S is more suitable for usage with sub woofer while the SWA 9000S since already was designed for soundbars with integrated sub woofers (like MS650), is weaker on the bass.
