Summary: Bought this in November 2011 looking for a decent 26" TV. Its basically has what you need for a a simple TV. Unfortunately the sound quality is just not up to par at all. Very tinny sounding with no low frequency bass sound at all. Sounds like a cheap set ot PC speakers.
Summary: I read the reviews for this and they all were very promising. I have been a Sony consumer for allot of years and based on the other reviews I thought I would go with samsung since I just ordered a samsung LCD TV. The first indication of the poor quality was the volume nob.
Summary: I do not have this amp. But, the sales person told me you may want to know... It does NOT have a "High Current" amplifier in it. Meaning, if the sound suddenly gets loud, the less expensive amp in this amplifier takes longer time to ramp up to that volume level, and is constantly playing catch up...
For a first standalone receiver from Samsung, a good try.

Summary: I got this a week ago as an receiver for my bedside use. I use headphone only. My headphone is sony V6 and AGK 240k. Here is what I found: pros: Good sound quality from CD with digital input. Runs cool therefore produce less thermal (Johnson) noise.
