Summary: Love the sound, easy to set up and integrate with my Samsung tv. I am not a real sound fanatic but it more than fits my needs. The only problem is the length of the speaker wires. If your room is more than ten by ten, it is going to be a problem getting the spreakers where you want them. The speakers have special connection ends so they cannot be replaced with longer wires and after a couple of phone calls, I learned Samsung doesn't offer any type of solution.
Summary: I bought this unit mainly because I wanted a reliable 3D Blu Ray player and I have been pleased with Samsung units in the past. I also had been informed that the audio system needed to be compatible with the 3D system in order to offer the best sound experience. If not for this I would have kept my existing sound system and just bought a 3D BluRay machine.
Great sounding system although misleading about 7.1

Summary: Let me start off by saying I have a very keen ear. I rate many audio setups and speaker systems. All true audiophiles know that a HTIB just simply cannot replicate the sound quality of a component system made up of true, high-quality manufactured speakers. That being said, you will not find a closer alternative than this new Samsung system with vacuum tubes.
Summary: I've always been a seperate component owner. This is my first HTIAB, I was searching for wireless rear speakers, a much better option for me than just a soundbar (this is for the living room, I do have a Vizio VHT 510 real 5.1 soundbar in the bedroom, works great). For starters, it's not a true 7.1, it's a 5.1.
Summary: \probably as good a deal on a 'Theatre in a box' as there is: sound is clean, good settings either manually or by using the built in calibration system. The 'smart hub' provides easy connection to such as Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora plus there is a web portal but I've not used it yet. Would have rated this a five star buy except the sub woofer could use more punch and the hub tends to be a bit 'clunky' at times b ut I still recommend the system strongly.
great sound hums a bit from time to time when not in use

Summary: This thing is a pretty good deal and looks great in my place. Sound is full and rich but it does have a passive subwoofer so it could be fuller but bass is still strong enough to fill a fair sized condo living room. Some humming comes across the speakers from time to time when it is turned on and not receiving a signal. I cant say much for its smarthub as I use the smarthub on my tv most often.
Really goods sound and looks good, but the wifi net stuff - not so good

Summary: This was pretty easy to install and it puts out great surround sound. The towers up front look a lot better than hung speakers would I think. Picture and 3D are excellent too. I also like the old school- new school aspect of the vac tubes in a high tech devise - looks cool too. But, when you go into the web browser and navigate I think you enter some sort of time wrap where everything slows to a snails pace and the technology goes back 10 years.
