Soundbars are great. They don't add to the bulk of your home entertainment system, since they can easily hide away underneath your TV, but they add a huge boost in sound quality over your TV's tinny integrated speakers. If you want surround sound, some have wireless rear speakers. If you want Dolby Atmos for overhead surround sound, though -- you need something special. And that's where the Samsung K950, a slim soundbar that can bounce sound off your ceiling, comes in.

Someone asked me recently what home theatre setup I'd build myself if money was no issue. I'm not talking about an actual theatre -- I'd rather just go to the movies for that -- but here's what I'd buy myself. If you have an appropriately fat bank account, enough space at home and an afternoon to buy everything, here's what you should get.

In Australia, we love soundbars -- they're compact, but offer sound quality that's a massive step ahead of even the best TVs' integrated speaker systems. New advances in surround sound like Dolby Atmos don't play well with all-in-one soundbar designs, though, which is why Samsung's new K950 soundbar has wireless rear speakers, and 15 different internal speaker drivers across the surround setup, some of which bounce sound off your ceiling.
