Summary: I just bought this unit a week ago at Best Buy as an open box item. It was originally $499, but marked down to $289 since it was open box, but the day before Thanksgiving they were doing 30% off all open box items so I got it out the door at $202 before tax.
Summary: I did not buy this at NewEgg... Got it at a major retailer, that thinks they are the "Best"... I had this for a little over a year when the front Right Channel started making a popping sound all the time. I thought it was the speaker so I replaced the speaker and the popping stayed...
Pros: Great Sound! Big Power for the price! HDMI Audio Passthrough.
Cons: Hard for my family to use. Only lasted about 18months.
Summary: The AS730ST is great! I bought it for the wireless rear speakers and wasn't disappointed. The whole system fits well with my Samsung TV and Blu-ray player. It has a lot of automatic features that make it work seamlessly with the player and HDTV. I am totally satisified with it.
