        Oops - I didn't realise this. I had ordered one in WA.

    Got this for $299 refurbished from JB Hifi last month. It’s a nice soundbar but I’m currently having issues with it flickering on and off every now and then when passing an apple tv or ps5 signal through it. I’m hoping it’s just the HDMI cable it came with. Other than that it’s a nice upgrade from my cheaper 2.1 samsung soundbar.

      That eBay one says factory second in the description. Check with the seller before buying. Also it’s $30 postage to WA.
      The buy smarte one could be good for non WA purchase but $29 delivery otherwise.

        I bought one of the ebay units. Works fine, but it was def a refurb not a factory second. Was still registered to someone elses account for alexa.

    Just an FYI - from someone with quite a pricey atmos soundbar- it’s absolutely pointless having atmos on a soundbar. There is no separation between the height channels. Don’t let atmos be a deciding factor in choosing your soundbar.

      Thanks for your feedback on this, as I was considering an Atmos soundbar to go with my LG G1 Evo which is mainly going to be used for watching movies.

      Do you have a recommendation for an Atmos home theatre system under $1K?

        Q950A is good. It has 4 up-firing channels. I have the 2020 model Q950T and you can find this model for around 1K.

          Thanks, can you tell me what's the difference between the Q950T and Q950A?

      Which model do you have?

        Sony ht-z9f

          Thanks mate. Interesting - Rtings review analyses the HT-Z9F height at a score (out of 10) as 4.3 vs 4.8 for the Q70T. Both not great scores. In comparison a Sonos Arc gets 6.4 and high end standalone Yamahas mid 6's. https://www.rtings.com/soundbar/tools/compare/sony-ht-z9f-vs...

            @pro: I'd just get the Q70T if you can get it for this price $419, pretty cheap when the RRP is $899.
            It's an old model now with the 'A' version out but does the job nicely IMO. Depends how much you want to spend though, no sound bars are really worth the asking prices.

          •  

            @pro: I’ve got a mate that has the arc and we’ve tested out a few atmos movies on it and again, the difference is really not noticeable. I’m a fan of soundbars and what they provide for the price, size, ease of use etc. However people really should be taking atmos capabilities on a soundbar with a grain of salt.

            •  

              @TightTerry: should take the sound with a grain of salt too. Like you said they are a compact, convenient solution that greatly enhances the tv sound, given that the panels are thinner and most build in speakers are junk at best. They are still no real replacement for spaced out surround speakers if you're into that (I've been there and done that and it's worth the effort personally these days, particularly when receivers and codecs go out of date rather quickly). Point is that sound bars are just bad value if they are over $500-1000 (with marginal improvment) but everyone's budget is different.

    Good price, better put in a price protection claim
    FYI I can hear the difference with the Atmos, better sound overall - got a Google TV plugged into the HDMI input. Good quality and user friendly overall, I prefer this model with the front display and aluminium mesh over the more expensive models with the display on top (which you can't see from the couch) and material cover that can snag and attract dust).

    It's a bit much if someone is saying don't get this Atmos soundbar but then recommends spending over double on. It's only worth paying so much imo, they still have all the speakers in one spot and not as good as a basic receiver and 5.1 surround setup.

    Soundbars are just good for convenience and minimal wiring.

    Oh, I also get occasional dropouts with the sound/signal (one second here and there), NFI why, will have to test another HDMI cable. Assumed it was the Google TV as it's plugged directly into the soundbar and the arc to the TV is really just for the picture I would have thought.
