Samsung HT-J5500W Review

 

Samsung's HT-J5500W system is one of the few home theater in a box systems that has wireless speakers. Featuring a built-in Blu-ray player that supports 3D video and support for Wi-Fi, you'll have access to hours of entertainment. However, its audio...

With Samsung's HT-J5500W system, you are trading convenience for sound quality. It isn't an impressive speaker system, but it isn't a bad one either. It does have some nice features like Wi-Fi support and 3D Blu-ray capabilities, but its lack of HDMI...

Horrible Home Theater System!

 

Definite downgrade from my old Samsung Home Theater in a Box that died. What type of HTS does not have an HDMI in?

Bluetooth and Wireless

Optical input only works in 2 channel! No HDMI in.. so can not use at all.. have to return as these units are junk with no HDMI in and only 2 channel optical input so no surround sound!
