Great

 

Have had it installed for 4 months. Sure wish NEWEGG would offer it again. I need a second HW-C700 for my other system

Only negative is that it is now not offered

Samsung HW C700 7.2

 

Best A/V receiver for under $200. Bought this to replace my 13 year-old Onkyo 5.1. Just barely had enough time to hook up speaker wires and the Blu ray player without any calibration. The sound is awesome , bid difference from my old receiver. Well...

None so far

good receiver

 

I dont think you could find a better receiver for $200 bucks

Cheap price, got it for $200 shipped. The added Ipod dock is a bonus. This is a digital receiver and that is why it weighs so less and probably why it doesn't get hot. Unit is rather large compared to my old Onkyo SR507. First thing I did to the unit...

Remote is kind of clunky and initial setup is awkward. All ports default to analog instead of the HDMI so you have to set that. But once the setup is complete you dont need to touch it

Samsung HW-C700 - Many Positives Outweigh The Few Negatives

 

4-port HDMI 1.4 switching - even when unit is in standby, excellent multi-format HD processing, 3D Surround true HD audio decoder, lightweight, flash firmware upgradable, iPod cradle included, Anynet+/HDMI CEC support, fairly low heat generation, nice...

No on-screen configuration - limited to unit front panel, while NewEgg's Feature Listing for this unit states "muti room", this system does NOT have multi-room capabilities

It does amplify and receive.

 

I got this thing ridiculously cheap (a guerrilla deal and a promotional gift card made it tolerable). It is a secondary receiver. My main receiver is an Onkyo 608 and there is absolutely no comparison. The Onkyo may average 100-150 more but the...

It looks good ; Sound comes out of the speakers ; Newegg's price was cheap (got $220.00 off the price) and the shipping was free

Setup and features are a joke compared to receivers that don't cost much more ; Not many adjustments...you get what you get and if you don't like it then tough ; No on-screen menu; even my old Pioneer had an on-screen menu. It sets up like a fax...

Stay away!

 

After giving this AVR a shot for amweek I think Im gonna return it and get an onkyo or yamaha.

Sound is clear, crisp and clean. Receiver looks sweet.supports hd audio formats. Works well with other samsung products

Setup was a nightmare. Spent two hours on two separate days with two separate customer service reps trying to figure out why I can't get sound when playing blue ray. I had 1.4 HDMI cable running from BD to receiver and same high quality cable from...
