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. BUT the worst part is that there is NO audio out of any kind. I thought this would be a given, at least a headphone jack that I could connect an external sound system too but there is nothing at all.
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. Flimsy fragile plastic that wouldn't be safe for my 4 year old to turn. Then the speaker connectors are an even worse plastic that only allowed me to use a bare wire screw connection.
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 with the changing volume levels. As opposed to a high current amp that more accurately reproduces sound.
For a first standalone receiver from Samsung, a good try.

Digital Amp, light weight (people consider this as a sign of inferior in quality, but remember this one is digital amp, very efficient and generate less heat therefore there is no need for a bulky heat sink which accounts for...
