Summary I've Read the items specs, reviews, and comparisons before I purchased this item before I was moved just enough to throw away $700. (Throw away, not waste) I'm sure if your reading this you must know the basics. Its 1300W, 7.1 surround sound, with wifi, iPod, and online hub capabilities. Yea yea cool cool, my Samsung TV does the same thing minus the iPod function. I first opened the box amazed at how well packaged it was and a little skeptical that it could be setup so fast. Never the less, the item was up and running within 30 min. Its pretty simple, just big.
It's loud and very clear! I can tell you that right off the bat but I'm more interested in its sound qualities for when I want to have a nice surround sound experience in the comfort of my home. I don't really use 3D mode as I don't yet have a 3D TV. Vertical mode is just louder than all other modes. You hear all the small things as well as everything else through all the speakers. Aside from that you have Music, Movie, Stereo, Prologic II, and Matrix mode which all sound different.
Of course I only play with Vertical, movie and music mode so keep that in mind as well. Movie mode for movies has to be turned up so you can hear all the tiny voices, but when its time for an action sequence it get's a lot louder than necessary but sounds exactly like your at the movies. You can hear shell casing hit the ground and bounce around in the small rear wireless speakers very clearly. I'm Impressed simply by that really. The best experience though was playing Battlefield 3 with the system in Movie mode. The best gaming experience and test of this system I've ever had hands down.
You are in the center of everything. You hear planes, and helicopters taking off and moving from one corner of the room to the other. You can identify locations through the sound of footsteps, or whoever is giving commands at any point around you. Truly unbelievable. For what this system can do at its price point I am completely content. If there's any other system that can do more than but cost's more, than its purely over kill if you ask me. If you have the cash, and your looking for a similar experience this is the system to get!
*** Note, before you will buy the Samsung HT-D6730W, I suggest you have to check for best deal before you decide at: Hometheatersystemsuggestion.blogspot.com/2012/01/ht-d6730w.html
Hope this helps.
Pros - Great sleek look w/ LED blue lights on the blu-ray unit and touch sensitive controls.
- Sound quality is extremely crisp, solid bass performance especially in movies and great mid-high range
- Many controls to customize speaker setup/sound levels.
- 2 H
Cons - First unit I bought had defective front panel where the lights would not turn on for volume and the video input would switch at random times
- 2nd unit fixed lighting issue but front panel slightly loose and had many glitches where the input would chang
Summary If you can get it to work, it's one of the best HTIB units on the market at the time of my purchase. Having the HDMI inputs is a critical feature that finally makes the system worth buying over a traditional home theatre setup where you must buy parts seperately. In movies it will fill the room with sound. It's really incredible how powerful the bass and rear speakers are for their size.
Pros hits hard.. very decent for size
easy to set up
paid 586.99 at best buy on sale on 12/31/11
Cons wish it had more hdmi inputs.....
Summary great system... all in one device
Pros -Sound quality. Crisp high end sound and powerful bass.
- Looks great, tallboy speakers look awesome on either side of the tv.
-Built in apps like Netflix and Pandora
-Tons of customizable settings
-Very easy set up
Cons -My ONLY complaint is that the equipment is prone to attracting dust, fingerprints, and doghair. It's because of that nice glossy finish that makes it look so good!
Summary This is an excellent buy for anyone looking to create a true home theatre experiene. I got a 55" Vizio LED LCD a few months ago and have been shopping for a surround sound system. I am blown away with this one. Was using the Pandora app and it pounds so hard I thought I was going to have the cops called for a noise complaint. The iPhone dock is great too. WON'T DISSAPOINT!!!
Pros Great theater quality surround sound with full blown sound effects.
Great 2D conversion to 3D when properly hooked up right.
Ability to listen to I-pod or I-phone in surround sound.
Since I don't have an I-phone I haven't verified it, but you are supp
Cons None that I know of.
Summary I think that the surround sound quality is excellent and I agree with every positive review that I have read. Since I have not read a review on the ability of this system to convert 2D to 3D, I will deal with that subject.
The sound system receiver has 1 HDMI output and 2 HDMI inputs. I ran the HDMI output to my 3D emitter which connects to my 3D TV. Then I ran my Sony 3D Bluray player which came with my 3D TV to one of the sound system receiver HDMI input and I connected a HDMI switch to the other HDMI input. Next thing that I did was to run my Sony Playstation 3 to one of the HDMI switch input and my satellite receiver to the other HDMI switch input by means of my Google revue.
In addition to high quality surround sound effects, I can now covert all of my satellite programs, all of my videos games, all internet videos, all DVDs, all Bluray DVDs, and all of my Sony and Samsung 3D Bluray apps (including Netflix TV/movies and Vudu movies) to 3D.
