Don't Listen to NA


I don't own this system but have been researching it. Don't listen to NA, he or she does not know what they are talking about. First of all Korea doesn't encompass all of Asia, like they think it does. The PS3 is actually made by Sony, which is guess...

Sound is awesome, 1000 Watts are plenty it rocks my house.... The g/f was like I can't believe you wasted money on this.... Then we watched the first movie she was hooked immediately

Two things I am picky about I hate that when you start the machine it automatically wont start on the setting I left it at, and if you say wireless rear speakers they should be wireless... But overall I LOVE IT

This system was an upgrade from a smaller Samsung system. Easy setup and installation. The dual HDMI ports simply cable routing. The wireless rear speakers make a clean install. Routing all video and sound through the system makes the whole experience...

It Works!


Easy set up, very good sound. Exceptional value at price paid. I replaced a 5 year old similar model to get Wi-Fi connection to internet and more HDMI inputs and am very satisfied
