If you’re looking to add some on-screen entertainment to your space, but not take away from your home decor, Samsung’s art-filled Frame TVs are among the most popular models on the market. The TVs feature beautiful bezels and display paintings when put in standby mode, meaning they easily double as wall art in between Netflix specials.

Today, the tech giant announced pricing and availability for its 2019 Frame TV line, along with its new QLED TVs, including its new 8K models and its 4K lineup. The company also released pricing for its accompanying Q Series soundbars, providing interior decorators and home entertainment enthusiasts alike plenty of ways to upgrade their living space with TVs and soundbars in all shapes and sizes.

The 2019 model of Frame TV can be had in sizes ranging from 43 to 65 inches and comes standard with 20 art pieces to choose from. Those looking for something a bit more specific have over 1,000 display pieces to choose from inside Samsung’s Art Store, which has licensed art from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, and more. In addition to new art, the latest Frame TV models feature Samsung’s QLED technology, which provides deeper blacks and better color contrast than ever.

Understandably, those looking for a TV that disappears into its surroundings will pay a premium. The Frame TV will cost $1,300 for the 43-inch model, $1,700 for the 49-inch model, $2,000 for the 55-inch model, and $2,800 for the 65-inch model. The TVs are available now via Samsung’s website, and will be in select retailers starting later this month.

8K in the house

While Sony is already pushing toward 16K, Samsung unveiled the price list for its eye-popping new QLED 8K TVs, which are actually making their way to living rooms. Pricing starts at the large-and-in-charge 65-inch size for $5,000 and move up to 75-inch, 82-inch, and 85-inch sizes. After all, if you’re going to go 8K, you need a massive screen to appreciate that kind of resolution. The 85-inch model tops out at a whopping $15,000.

The company also laid out its massive 4K QLED lineup, including the top-end Q90 series, and the Q80, the Q70, and the Q60 series. Those looking at the cheaper side of things may want to start with the Q60, which arrives in 43-inch sizes for $800, and moves all the way up to the 82-inch model at $3,800.

Moving up the line to the Q70 will get you better contrast and off-axis viewing, among other feature upgrades. The Q70 series begins at 49 inches for $1,250 and goes up to $2,200 for its 65-inch model and $4,500 for its largest 82-inch size. The Q80 starts at the 55-inch size for $2,000 and tops out at the 75-inch size for $4,000. Finally, the top-tier Q90 series starts at 65 inches for $3,500 and goes up to 82 inches for $6,500.

Finally, Samsung’s lower-tier RU 4K UHD TVs, which don’t include the quantum dot color technology of its QLED lineup, were also unveiled. The RU TVs come in three series, including the RU7100, which runs from its 43-inch $430 model to its 75-inch $1,600 model; the RU7300, which includes just the 55-inch model for $700 and the 65-incher for $1,000; and the RU800, which includes five sizes, from the $800 49-inch model to the $3,200 82-inch model.

Soundbars to match

In addition to the art-focused TV line, Samsung also announced pricing for its latest high-end soundbars, the Q Series. It offers four distinct models, the Q60, Q70, Q80, and Q90, which range in price from $500 to $1,700. The lower-tier models offer high-quality sound without satellite speakers, and top-end models like the Q90 boast a satellite subwoofer, rear speakers, and Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based surround sound support.

The company also shared details on its more affordable R Series soundbar line, which boasts much of the same advanced digital signal processing as its higher-end Q series models, but at more affordable prices. The R series features three models that range from $200 to $400.

All Samsung’s new soundbars are available for order now on the company’s website, and will hit select retailers soon.

Nakamichi increases the price of its Dragon 11.4.6 soundbar
Nakamichi Dragon Surround System Review

Nakamichi says that it can no longer afford to sell its wild, 11.4.6-channel Dragon soundbar system for its original price of $3,500. Once the original pre-order inventory of 1,000 units has been spoken for, the company will up the price of the Dragon to $3,900.

Preorders on the first batch of 1,000 Dragons haven't started yet. They begin on August 3 at 9 a.m. PT.  It's possible that Nakamichi is using the threat of a price increase as a stick to ensure that its first 1,000 units see rapid sales, however, the company claims it has to charge more in order to offset unexpected costs associated with both the production of the Dragon as well as complexities involved in the shipment of these systems to customers.

Samsung takes on TCL with 98-inch 4K TV that costs just $8,000
Samsung 98-inch Q80C QLED 4K HDR TV.

In May, TCL stunned us with the price of its new Q Class QM8 98-inch TV. At a mere $10,000, it was far less than the cheapest comparable model from Samsung. Today, Samsung is answering that challenge with an impressively low-priced 98-inch model of its own: the

Samsung adds HW-Q900C to its lineup of 2023 Dolby Atmos soundbars
Samsung 2023 Soundbars.

Samsung has been pretty quiet about its 2023 lineup of Dolby Atmos soundbars since it announced the new collection back at CES 2023, but we finally have all of the models, prices, and features. As we already knew, the latest flagship is the HW-Q990C, a monster 22-driver, 11.1.4-channel system that carries forward the legacy of the HW-Q990B from 2022 -- a soundbar that deeply impressed our reviewer. However, it's now joined by the HW-Q900C -- a more affordable version for folks who don't need the 990C's surround speakers, but who nonetheless may want to add them at a later date.

Also new to the collection are two C-Series models that bring the price of better TV sound down to $200 or less. Here's the full lineup.
Samsung Q-Series Dolby Atmos soundbars
In addition to Dolby Atmos compatibility, Samsung's Q-Series soundbars feature Q-Symphony, a feature that lets a compatible Samsung TV enhance the soundbar's own performance through the use of the TV's built-in speakers. Version 3.0 of Q-Symphony also uses the TV’s sound algorithms to analyze each scene to match the TV and soundbar outputs.
