Samsung HT-AS730ST review: Samsung HT-AS730ST


Samsung HT-AS730ST

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.

Great Sound! Big Power for the price! HDMI Audio Passthrough

Hard for my family to use. Only lasted about 18months

Too Difficult to Use


I have 2 other home-entertainment units at home (TV/family room and bedroom) and got this Samsung unit (not at newegg) for my PC room to play PC games and watch occasional movie. Unfortunately, this Amp is so hard to use, that something as simple as to...

Nice shinny black finish, excellent bass response from sub-woofer, plenty of inputs/outputs, great auto-speaker-tunning system, excellent all-around sound

Extremely difficult to navigate thru amplifier settings. You need to go to school and take a class on how to change any settings on this unit. Need instruction booklet on hand all the time due to complex system
