Samsung's Flagship Home Theatre: A Glowing Experience

By Tony Ibrahim | Sunday | 21/10/2012

The engineering, design and layout of home theatre systems have been geared to induce a sense of involvement when watching a movie.

Floor standing speakers are strategically positioned around the viewer, churning vibrations reminiscent of the on-screen action. Pop in Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan and with a powerful surround sound system, the vibrations from the speakers will create the illusion bullets truly are whizzing past.

Whereas most companies have been focusing solely on how powerful their home theatre speakers are, Samsung has introduced a game changing feature in their top of the range model, the HT-E6750W. At its heart is a Vacuum Tube Amplifier which aims to produce the kind of warm sound coveted by audio purists. The technology isn't ubiquitous because most companies struggle to balance booming audio with the tech's unique texture. Fortunately, Samsung isn't most companies.

In an effort to get the best results, they employ it pre-amplifier and rely on a digital power amplifier for big scale volume. In hybridising the gear, Samsung has managed to get the best of both worlds, and for their efforts they have a competitive advantage foreign to their rivals.

That's not to neglect that the amplifier adds charm by exuding a subtle glow when in use, as if the electricity powering it is visible to the naked eye.  

By combining the Vacuum Tube Amplifier with powerful 1,330W speakers, the 7.1 home theatre system outs rich audio right across the sound stage. The four floor-standing speakers populate background ambience diligently, and when the volume is upped delivers punchy audio ripe with vigour. Despite the beefy theatrics it almost never sounds out of control, conscientiously producing minimal distortion.

When it comes to playing back multimedia, the HT-E6750W employs a vast portfolio of features that help it socialise wirelessly with other compatible devices. Standardised DLNA is a welcomed addition, but Samsung's ever-present AllShare Play is the go-to between compatible DLNA Samsung devices. Music, videos and photos can be shared between compatible devices or accessed via the cloud service.

Connecting the system to your home network will grant viewer's access to all kinds of sporting and entertainment content, including Quickflix™, Youtube® and Samsung Music Hub™. They can browse the World Wide Web from the comfort of their couch or access dedicated apps like Facebook® and Twitter®.

The rest of the spec-sheet is reputable with noteworthy additions including proficient 3D Blu-ray capabilities for your compatible 3D TV (enhanced by a plethora of audio and video software), Bluetooth®, Wi Fi Direct and wireless rear speakers.

Between its old-school appreciation for sound, its connected persona and its generous content, Samsung's HT-E6750W will keep you entertained no matter the genre.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
