Fine sound system


Have no prob with the bass (wood floors help-ask my neighbors above me). I have 2.4g wireless and I get 54g to 160n speeds w/o issue so I'm not sure about the interference part. Wireless n tops out @160 anywhere I've tried it - even next to the router...

Great sound system, particularly if you own one of the newer Samsung TVs with the AnyNet+. I have a Blu-Ray Samsung player as well as one of their plasma 50" TVs. Wireless rear speakers are great. Be sure to use the HDMI only for picture and digital...

Somewhat difficult to program Logitech Harmony One because of the odd collection of grouped inputs, but then what isn't difficult to program with Harmony? Would have been nice to have a lit remote, too. AnyNet+ occasionally reminds me of that HAL...

Not too bad


Wire Speakers in the rear are a nice touch. Great sound. Auto detection for speakers sets the sound levels for you. Pop in a movie and sounds come from all over at a great level

Remote is not a smart remote. It will not learn to operate other TV's. Will only work a Samsung. Sound is slow to start, takes about 10seconds before you hear anything when changing sources

router interference


I love newegg, just am really annoyed with this product and wish this was more clearly disclaimed.

A good system for the money with one critical exception

It took me weeks of troubleshooting, but I finally realized that the wireless rear speakers create a major interference to most wireless routers. The speakers broadcast on 2.4 ghz, as do almost all b/g routers. It is a known issue, so if you have a...

Pleasant Surprise


Samsung has come a long way!! Remember when it was K-Mart only merchandise?!?!

So I got this for a friend/client to put in his den with his new LCD TV and am amazed at the build quality and features of this package!!! Very nice piece of equipment for the money! The rear wireless speakers were a snap to install, the ipod adapter...

Powered sub would have been the crowning achievment but still sounds O.K , especially for the 40 & older crowd!!! Hip hop fans need not apply as the sub will get muddy with the likes of Lil Wayne or T.I. One could always ADD a powerd sub and then I...

Great system!


I'm a simple man; it plays dvd's, cd's and sound good. Great for the regular household that doesn't want to spend a huge amount of money!

Quality product! Easy use/setup. Wireless receiver for rear spkrs (spkrs wired to rcvr) 5 disc changer, IPOD hook up... Definitely cranks loud enough in my home, can here it clearly through the kitchen windows 40 feet away, outside on the patio

Can't seem to find music shuffle, haven't found to many other issues yet

Great little unit


I knew going into this purchase that this system has only one aux in, using a digital audio in I was able to get sound from my Samsung TV to this unit. I also knew that the sub-woofer wasn't powered, so it was be a little weaker (no rattling windows...

DVD Upconvert, 5 DVD/CD disc changer, 1200Watts, Anynet + (HDMI-CEC), wireless rear speakers

Limited inputs for devices, HDMI is video only (no audio), weak sub-woofer (not powered)
