Sounds good for what it is
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.
Impressively feature-packed system
The Samsung HT-E6730W is an impressively feature-packed system. The Blu-ray player section offers 2D, 3D, and both internet and network streaming. The audio portion of the system is very innovative, featuring a vacuum-tube based preamp stage, as well as providing additional inputs, iPod connectivity, an FM stereo radio, and a twist on 7.1 channel speaker configuration that emphasizes front height, rather than rear back speakers.
Not a great system
I was very unimpressed with this system. While it was triple the prize of my old speakers (which have now come down even more) the sound quality is far worse. The bass, in particular, suffers; with my logitecs I could shake the floor playing Led Zeppelin and with this samsung system I can hardly even hear the bass, despite doing everything possible to turn it up.
The system works fine. It is the way you have it set-up! As the earlier poster stated.....You will need to adjust the sound using the remote. There are two buttons on bottom left-hand corner that allows you to do so. One is titled SOUND and the other is EFFECTS. I am getting 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound using a To slink (digital optical cable) connected to my cable box directly into my Blue-ray player.
Comprehensive feature range
We love the HT-E6500W's hugely generous range of features and its stylish, living room friendly design, while its connections, format support, streaming functionality and Blu-ray picture quality are all up to scratch. And for the most part its sound quality is too, with the valve amp tech lending dynamism and punch, although evidence of brightness (particularly at loud volumes) rains on the parade.
Speakers themselves have no grilles of any kind,
What can I say about the Samsung HT-E6500W Vacuum Tube Home Theater System at a little over $700 retail, other than "Skip it"? I mean it, don't even waste your time or be fooled by its supposed "audiophile sound quality" - there isn't any to be had. I found nothing redeeming about the Samsung HT-E6500W system and, if you're looking to get into home theater, there are better, more affordable ways to do so.
Impressive overall fidelity for an HTIB
Samsung should be commended for raising the bar for HTIB systems. While the HT-E6500W can't be considered a high-end audio system by audiophile standards, it does handily outperform most single-box solutions. If $600 seems a bit pricey for an HTIB, consider the fact that the system includes a Smart Blu-ray player worth at least $150 on its own, and pairs it with a capable, convenient audio solution with the ability to switch between two external HDMI sources.
Looks nice, sounds great
I got this yesterday and was able to get it hooked up easy. the rear cables are just long enough for the rear speakers. front, center and woofer have plenty of wire. i have nothing but samsung tv's so the remote replaced my tv remote out of the box no programing. if you use a optical cable it know's to use that for the audio without any setting changes by you either. less work from me is always better. the wireless is good too.
System is easily set up and has good connectivity options, hooked up to satellite reciever and xbox as well as TV. Connected to wireless network easily. Sound quality is better than average, but not spectacular. The wireless rear speakers make installation a breeze, but are somewhat weak in sound delivery. Disappointed that there is not a multiple disk changer, and the single drive is slow loading.
Good Basic Home Theater System
This product is performing as advertised. I did not want to spend $1000 on a theater system for a $500 TV (which I recieved for fathers day - Panasonic 50" Plasma) The connections were very straight forward.. The "On Screen" set up went pretty well. Running Cable Television shows thru the Sony Audio made the sound better than the TVs speakers.. and When playing a DVD we were amazed at the quality of the sound coming out of those little speakers.
Clear Voice Feature is a Life-Saver
I had previously tried the Yamaha S400BL sound bar to go with my new Bravia HX929 television. (Because it is for a bedroom, I don't have the room or funds to deal with a true surround sound setup.) Although it was significantly cheaper, I found that I had a near-impossible time understanding television dialogue with the 400BL no matter how many settings I tweaked.
