I am looking to purchase the Samsung HW-N950 soundbar. I understand that HDMI arc can't give me true Dolby Atmos sound immersion but only Dolby Digital +. Can anyone confirm this? Is there a noticeable sound difference? Should I wait for earc?
Would appreciate input on this.

You shouldn't worry about atoms with a soundbar regardless.

Actually I just bought this bar and it replaced my old bar. But I am really impressed with the wireless sub and rear speakers the sound really does go around you. Now my loft
Is not a large area so that really has to help.

Seriously, I have no life.
If you're streaming then DD+ is the only way you'll get Atmos (and a lite version by several reports), if you're using a bluray you can get the actual Dolby Atmos goodness....but without ceiling speakers do you have Atmos at all?

Well they are using the bouncy up firing speaker method. Don’t get me wrong this would never take the place of my 11 speakers and 3 subs I have downstairs but it does add another dimension to watching hockey or playing atmos movies I’ve watched before and I don’t want to waste bulb life on my projector. It is 100 percent better than the regular speaker bar I had. The only draw back is price but I managed to talk Visions in Canada to give me the display( only one left) which they set up 2 weeks ago and gave me another 250 off the sale price
