Top customer reviews
The setup is quite simple and I'm glad that Samsung decided to use true speaker wire rather than their proprietary connections. The sound is great, DVD's and FM are clear (even when using HDMI) and I'm glad I bought this unit. My only complaints:
1. I wish the rear speakers were similar to the front speakers. The fronts, you have an option as to whether or not you want to set them up on the tower stands. The rears, you have no choice.
2. There is only one optical in and I have 3 optical components that I'd like to plug in. Even the older HTIB had 2 optical connections. I can understand not having so many S-Video, RCA cables, etc.... but as things move to digital, it doesn't really give you a lot of options in having other components connect to the theater.
3. There is an HDMI-out and an HDMI-in right next to each other which I thought (and was hoping) was some sort of passthrough. Unfortunately, it's not and so the only way I could figure out how to connect my XBox was to connect the HDMI to the TV for video and then connect optical from the XBox to the HT (which is why I have complaints about #2).
4. The sub is BIG. Ok, so there is a lot of watts that this thing can push, but it's only ~200 more than my last unit and it doesn't easily fit into my TV stand. It's almost double the size.
If you're aware of these potential shortcomings, this is a fantastic unit. I am quite impressed with Samsung and their support!
I got it installed in about an hour and delivers an awesome sound. I used two HDMI cables between my Samsung 46" LCD and the satellite receiver. I have a PS2 connected to it using the Aux inputs, too. I didn't experience ANY technical problem playing all types of DVDs and CDs (and hope I won't).
I'm sure there are way better (and expensiver!) systems in the market but, again, this was a perfect fit for me... I couldn't ask for more.
I saw Transformers and Spider Man III a few days ago and Dolby 5.1 makes you jump from the couch!!! Put an old Pavarotti DVD (surround mode) the other day and the power and sound quality just made me cry...
I highly recommend the wireless system for the rear speakers; for an extra 100 bucks you will avoid the hassle of cabling. My family room connects with the kitchen so I put the rear speakers over the upper cabinets... and it was a perfect lay out (measures) to get the best sound.
I also recommend you make some research on sound systems (dolby, dolby 5.1, 7.1, etc..., get your room measures, and check for speakers lay out recommendations before you buy anything. It's all in the web.
Summary: Awesome out-the-box Home Theather System!!! I couldn't be happier!!!
As mentioned earlier, the sub-woofers pack a punch but it doesn't overdo it. I switched the rear speakers so I could put the tower speakers in the back which was more effective for me. I used the Optical Audio in as the HDMI in pass-through mode didn't work. Not a fault of Samsungs - my cable company has got to allow it and as noted on the forums, it can get pretty hard to get the cable reps to help.
Overall, a worthy buy
I set this up in a entertainment system unit that held my xbox 360, 42" LCD TV, cable modem, ipod etc.
The system sounds great for the size room and has low and high end response from the speaker system. It is not audiophile grade, but for the home user it is more than sufficient for movies, high definition programing, gaming, etc.
After about three months, when we were using the system for more than 20 or 30 minutes at a time, we started to notice that it would shut down on its own...
but after spending some time with the unit - i noticed that it read "protection" on the read out screen just prior to shutting down.... and, upon further investigation, i noted that the unit was SUPER HOT when it did this.
I went online to do a little research and have found that this is a common issue with this model and it it is due to a lousy design. The system heats up and the small fan cannot keep up with cooling it... there is a system on board to "protect" the system and auto shuts down the system so it doesn't overheat.
I read that several do it yourself gurus online suggest opening the system up to replace fan or inspect the elements around the fan to remedy the issue - BUT I DO NOT ENCOURAGE THIS - once you open it voids the warranty if you still have one AND it is dangerous to mess with electronics if you are not a trained professional. I certainly want to point out that messing with this unit MAY cause a fire as it is an electrical device. I suggest you do as I am going to do - GO AFTER THE MAKER....
SAMSUNG - shame on you... you should fix these on your dime. Buyers beware.
