In this video, we unbox the new Samsung HW-N950 Soundbar from Samsung and Harman Kardon. Have a look what you get in the box and what is included.

Opening Up

The first thing you will notice about the Samsung HW-N950 Soundbar is the weight.   27.5kg to be exact, so if you live in a 4th floor flat, it might be worth asking a friend to help you carry this beast up stairs with you.  That is unless you have a really helpful delivery driver.

The soundbar is very well packaged, and includes the following:

Soundbar

Subwoofer

Rear Speakers x 2

Remote Control (with batteries)

Wall mounting brackets (and fixing screws)

Power cables x 4

Our Tips

As we have mentioned in our Samsung HW-N950 Soundbar review, extra care is needed if you decide to mount the soundbar to a wall.   When drilling the holes for the mounting brackets, make sure you use some high quality raw plugs and ask a friend to help hold the soundbar as you attach the holding screws which securely hold the soundbar to the brackets. 

We also found it easier to give the brackets a little gentle bend as the sheer weight of the bar does pull them downwards once it is sitting on them.

Anyhow, back to the unboxing…

Inside the box, the sound bar, sub woofer and rear speakers are protected very well, and wrapped up like a turkey at Christmas.

After you have setup and tested the sound bar, before you take all the packaging down to recycling, we suggest taking a picture of the serial number label outside the box – this will save you having to lie on your floor reading the small print of the label on the sound bar itself when you go to register your new purchase.
