Samsung HT-AS730ST

 

These days, a home-theater-in-a-box system comes in one of three basic designs: an all-in-one package that includes a built-in DVD or Blu-ray player; a "soundbar" system that consolidates everything into a single speaker bar that can be mounted under a...

Multiple connection options including up to four HD sources; includes iPod dock for audio and video; works with third-party speakers; expandable to 7.1 configuration.

Video is pass-through only--no upconversion from analog to HDMI; illogical and sometimes confusing input system; display nearly impossible to read; finicky HDMI ports; confusing setup; subpar sound quality for the price.

The Samsung HT-AS730's unimpressive sound quality, finicky HDMI ports, unreadable display, and tedious input system will have you looking elsewhere for a Blu-ray-ready home theater package.

Decent for what you'll be using it for

 

Good sound quality for movies, not for music players, easy sync with televisions. not worth the effort. Perfect for a Home theater (not music player) out of a box

Samsung synchronization with tv and blu-ray player. 3 HDMI inputs ; Good sound with movies

Lots of fussing and tinkering to get decent music playing quality. But possible ; (Keep on stereo, Change speaker levels to even out volume, increase high frequency on itunes equalizer)

not much good here

 

I am very dissapointed that I cannot get any responce from Samsung techs about this product

controller pretty good, that's about all

when shut off always defaults to unconnected input jack, Samsung tech dept. won't respond! pitiful machine, samsung tv great! bd-3600 blu-ray is xlent, but don't waste money on this. also at least half second sound-lip lag, sometimes a full second

Overpriced paper weight

 

Never shop at Best Buy, I knew they were incompetent with electronics but I just had to get the stupid theater system that matched our new tv. This is what happens when you make an impulse purchase and fall in love with looks over substance. This...

When it's not magnetizing dust to its' surface it has a pretty shiny piano finish so it at first glance it looks like it could be a quality system

Too numerous to count. It doesn't do what it was created for. Doesn't receive media, amplify, transfer sound waves or video, etc... it is an overpriced piece of $hit

OK but purchasing separate components may be better.

 

We bought this system for a vacation condo with a small living room. I was able to reduce the price at Best Buy to $399 from $499 by showing them what competitors were charging. I then added a $169 Samsung BluRay player. I already had an HDMI cable...

Sleek design. Multiple HDMI ports

Sleek black surface shows dust. Inputs a bit confusing
