After announcing a pair of Dolby Atmos-equipped soundbars at CES, Samsung is finally shipping the duo in the US. The HW-K950 and HW-K850 are both available now, so long as you're willing to part with either $1,499 or $999, respectively. What are you getting for the extra dough? Samsung's HW-K950 is a more a complete sound system with a soundbar, two satellite speakers and a subwoofer. The whole group is wireless so you won't have to worry about hiding any unsightly cables. What's more, both the soundbar and the pair of smaller speakers project sound upward for any overhead effects the Dolby Atmos tech employs.

If you're looking to save a littlecoin, the HW-K850 does cost $500 less, but you have to give up those two satellite speakers. Of course, you can always upgrade later with a pair of Samsung's Radiant360 speakers for some Portal-esque flair. In addition to the Dolby Atmos compatibility, the HW-K950 and HW-K850 both offer Bluetooth connectivity for playing tunes from a mobile device. You can also stream music over WiFi with the Samsung Multiroom app which also controls any of the company's other speakers you may have situated around your house.
