My First Home Theatre System

 

I am running a Samsung 50 inch smart TV with this 5.1 Samsung Home Theatre System, very pleased with picture quality and now sound quality. As this is my first Home Theatre Sound system very pleased with the improved sound, did not realize what I had...

System came complete, everything was easy to hook up and assembly. Did have to splice in speaker wire extensions to mount the speakers but as I have all the tools and speaker wire easy to find no problem. I went with wall mounts which I picked up from...

As my home has a shallow roof pitch was not able to run the speaker wires down from the ceiling. So had additional cost procuring wire conduit and mounting clamps and speaker mounts. So next time I will look into buying another or replacement home...

Samsung quality

 

Overall this is a great setup. I did list plenty of Cons but you do have to consider this is a really cheap setup and for beginners probably the best bang for your buck. | I bought the system when it was on sale and I think the price was appropriate...

* Dummy proof installation. All speakers and wires are color coded for an easy installation * Typical shiny Samsung appearance (clean look) * Samsung Bluray is quieter and faster than my old one it replaced * Bluray player has the typical smart TV apps...

* Speaker wires are super thin and too short. Front speakers have plenty of wire but the rear speakers are too short for a clean routing along the wall (or ceiling). * The speaker wires connect through a special connector on the back of the unit of the...

Works Great!

 

I wanted to finally get Blueray, DVD, CD player that also had at least an FM tuner to replace my old surround system. having the "Smart Features" such as APPS and such are a nice bonus but with many options already with my particular cable set-up, will...

Easy to set-up and works great with a new 47" LED 3D Passive TV. The remote has an easy and logical lay-out without being a huge remote. Has optical digital audio input, aux input in case a person does not on their TV. Love fact they thought to place...

Like other reviews, I did not care for the subwoofer that came with it and fortunately, the system I was replacing had a great subwoofer and utilized same wire-insert-type speaker connection on rear. I wrongly assumed like ANY stereo component, it...
