Hi @Davy6 whilst Phillips Soundbar should be fine , Samsung Soundbars will have advantage of Remote Syncing and certainly in theory Seamless integration. They are also specifically compatible with certain features such as Q-Symphony . Depends though if this is necessary or relevant. https://www.samsung.com/uk/audio-devices/q-series-soundbar/ However other Brands can still provide a good experience, not sure if you already have the Soundbar or considering purchasing.
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
My Device- S21 Ultra 5G ( SM-998B/DS ) CSC= BTU , 12GB/256GB
One Ui 5.0,Android 13 .
Soundbars compatible with Philips TVs include Phillips soundbars as well as soundbars from Yamaha, Bose, Sonos, Samsung, Sony and LG.

Sorry for the lenthy reply James. I asked the question because I am about to purchase a 43 inch samsung tv and with the online reports about poor sound I wondering if my old Philips soundbar would do the job of improving any sound problems.
