5.0 out of 5 stars I love not having to string wires all over the room., September 13, 2008
This review is from: Samsung SWA-4000 Wireless Receiver (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I can't believe the people that complain about the small amount of wiring it takes to connect the right and left speakers that are actually run by the unit. I will take this to having to string four wires clear across my apartment just for two little surround speakers!

Besides, I think people don't realize how much interference they are introducing to the home with all the wireless remotes,cell & walkabout phones, routers, and computers!

This unit came with the HT-Z410 home theater system and works well. The rear speakers only work when true 5.1 and/or surround sound is present on the DVD or TV signal. If the HTS doesn't sense a clear digital audio signal when in D-in mode it will shut down automatically. I am having trouble with this but I don't know if it is because the cable box is putting out substandard data, or the cheap optical cable is the problem.

For some reason turning on the DVD side of the unit solves the sound problem, some times it works right off the bat. This intermittent nature is vexing but I will digress until I buy a more expensive, higher quality optical cable. In DVD mode, playing movies it works flawlessly.

I would recommend this neato unit to anyone using a compatible Samsung system. It is very easy to set up and test. When using this unit with a home theater system you plug the transmitter "stick" into the back of the HTS system and use this wireless module to setup the rear surround part of the system. You only have to provide wires to the two back speakers this unit controls.

When the room is hot the module occasionally runs a cooling fan, but it isn't as noticable when actually watching a surround sound type movie; and when the room is cool I don't notice it coming on very often if at all. I have never noticed a "white noise" or static sound coming from the speakers at idle, so that shouldn't be a problem compared to previous models.

I should say that I have very many wireless devices some of which are on the same frequency as this device and have never noticed any interference. I'm a big wireless fan so please don't feel I am cutting the unit down for that feature.
