The Samsung HW-Q59CT is a 5.1 setup released in 2021. It uses built-in Acoustic Beam technology to more accurately localize sound objects for a more immersive listening experience when using its 'Surround Sound' and 'Game Mode Pro' presets. The manufacturer also says that you can use its Q-Symphony feature with certain Samsung TVs to create a more immersive sound. If you want to listen to music, its 'Standard' preset has a pretty neutral sound profile that's suitable for most types of audio content, but unfortunately, it doesn't support Dolby Atmos content.
Note: The manufacturer advertises this soundbar as a 5.1 setup. However, during our tests, we found that it has a 3.1 setup when using its 'Standard' preset. With its 'Game Mode Pro' and 'Surround Sound' presets, it uses Acoustic Beam technology to simulate a 5.1 setup, which the manufacturer says helps with sound positioning to create a more immersive listening experience.
