You get what you pay for !!


My remote control stopped working after two days. You put new batteries in and it works for a while then quits. Checked for stuck buttons, none. Unfortunately a new remote is $60. a third of the price I payed for the whole unit. Very frustrating as...

Works great for movies and TV shows.


I found this equipment to be one of the easiest pieces of home entertainment equipment that I have set up. We do not listen to music so my need was more for good full sound for DVD's and digital TV programs and movies. My main concern when buying the...

System has great potential, just doesn't deliver the quality I expected.


Definitely does not perform like my Denon ADV-700 system. I wanted a wireless rear speaker system for a special room configuration and the HT-DB390 does not deliver as well as I had hoped. I did purchase the system as a display unit from Sears and this...

System is very well thought out and offers many great features. Instructions are detailed and easy to follow. Speaker set up is color coded. System was easy to match with my telivsion

Wireless rear speakers are very difficult to calibrate for quality sound. I am getting a resounance huming from right front speaker. Contacted Samsung 800 number and will probaby have to take system

Good product for small living


Good for apartment living. Wireless rear speakers avoid running wires across the room. Sound quality is good and the bass is deep enough and powerful enough for even the best action packed movies

Designed for small living arrangements. Remote at times will not work even with fresh batteries

good features but fail short on audio


Very good features for the price, no cables crossing your room. Automatic audio configuration

Automatic configuration is tricky, rear speaker still use cables, volume not loud, rear speakers skip audio on high demand
