What is Samsung Q Symphony: Q Symphony explained

Sound is the second most important feature, after picture quality. If you want to get the best possible experience from watching content on your TV, then you are probably very interested in getting great sound.

Samsung Q-Symphony is a technology that, on a programmatic level, improves sound and enhances your experience.

What is Q Symphony?

Q-Symphony is an audio technology designed for high-end Samsung TVs that aims to improve your audio experience. It is software that allows you to create a more surround sound experience.

However, you should keep in mind that this feature is only available in some high-end Samsung TV models. Moreover, the function can only be active when a soundbar with Q Symphony support is connected.

In fact, when I first heard about this technology, I did not immediately understand how it works. However, it turned out to be much simpler than that.

To make a long story short, when you plug a soundbar into the TV, the TV speakers are turning off. This was because there was a problem on the hardware level, the fact that two different sound sources interfered with each other.

However, in 2020, Samsung was able to software synchronize the two sound sources. That is, Q Symphony is a technology that improves the sound quality by activating the built-in speakers and the soundbar in parallel. This creates more surround sound, making it richer. It’s especially cool if you’re watching movies with a lot of action and active soundtrack.

How to activate Samsung Q Symphony?

To use the Q Symphony feature, you should do the following:

  • In order to use Q Symphony, you must have high-end TVs and a soundbar connected via HDMI or an optical cable.
  • After that, your need to change the sound source to D.IN.
  • To do this you need to press the “Source” button on the Samsung remote for 5-10 seconds.
  • After D.IN appears on the screen, you should go to D.IN settings and choose ‘ Sound output’ and change it to ‘TV+Soundbar’
