Samsung Launches New Home Theatre Kit With Wow Wireless Audio Speaker

By David Richards | Thursday | 23/05/2013

Samsung who last year captured 28% of the Australian home theatre market has overnight rolled out a new home theatre range that includes a new portable retro wireless audio system, new Blu ray players and a new vacuum tube home theatre system.

Several of their new home theatre products have wireless Bluetooth technology built in that allows streaming between devices. This is technology that Philip Newton, Samsung Vice President of Consumer Electronics, believes will give Samsung a "distinct edge".

"In 2012 we had exceptional growth with just two of our docks; we are now investing billions into consumer electronics design, technology and our manufacturing processes. Our unique vacuum tube technology coupled with new Bluetooth wireless technology is allowing us to deliver home theatre systems that are leading edge".

"At retail stores our unique kiosk system where we can sit a dock next to a Samsung TV or home theatre system is reaping enormous rewards because consumers trust their favourite TV brand to deliver other connected systems."

Among the new home theatre kit revealed are new Blu-ray models that feature 3D and smart TV functions while a new $299 retro-styled DA-F61 Portable Wireless Speaker which comes with NFC technology is a massive step up with the device which has 8 hours of battery life looking very European in its styling.

At the budget end of the Blu ray range Samsung has revealed the small footprint BD-F5100 Blu-ray player that delivers access to online services that are limited to Facebook, YouTube and AccuWeather, it also has DLNA.

The new BD-F6500 and the BD-F7500 are more for the premium end of the market with both Blu ray players delivering full smart TV functions, they powered by fast dual-core processors which deliver browsing functionality when the Smart TV functions are being used.

Another new feature is the screen-mirroring function that allows an owner of a Galaxy smartphone to display any content including movies still images and games onto a connected TV.

The new top end Samsung Bluray player is the HT-F9750 which has 4K video-upscaling, which will come in handy as manufacturers like Samsung start rolling out new 4K TV's.

This player converts DVDs and Blu-ray Discs to the native resolution of ultra high-definition TVs. 

Built in are two HDMI outputs for connecting a projector and a TV. You can also output audio and video signals independently; it also supports legacy A/V receivers.

Samsung's new 7.1 Channel Home Theatre System (model HT-F9750W) was created to be a counterpart for Samsung's 2013 Series 8 TVs and comes with a Gallium Nitride (GaN) amplifier that delivers crystal clear sound.

This year all Samsung sound bars have integrated Bluetooth connectivity that delivers wireless audio streaming from mobile devices. A new Sound Share technology also allows audio to be received from compatible Samsung TVs via Bluetooth.

A new Samsung TV Sound On feature allows users to activate the system's 1,330-watt sound while muting the internal TV speaker with a single click of the TV remote control.

For a larger-than-life experience almost comparable to that of a movie theater, the HT-F9750W offers the multi-dimensional sound of a swivel speaker, coupled with a DTS Neo fusion codec. The Gallium Nitride (GaN) amplifier is paired with the vacuum tube pre-amplifier, so consumers can enjoy natural sound with minimal distortion. A Ceramic Polypropylene Injection Diaphragm (CPID) speaker expands sound resolution to help make every note distinct.

The Blu-ray component of the HT-F9750W can run multiple apps simultaneously, and also offers Samsung's latest Smart Hub and AllShare features. This 1,330-watt system is an excellent addition for any audiophile looking for an amazing home entertainment experience.


The new Samsung's vacuum tube soundbar (HW-F751) has an integrated vacuum tube amplifier along with a sound share function, which enables users to wirelessly connect the soundbar to a compatible Samsung TV via Bluetooth. 

The product's gyroscope sensor gauges height, rotation and slope to help optimise sound quality, whether the soundbar is placed in a horizontal or vertical position. Combined, these features virtually eliminate restrictions on where consumers can place the HW-F751 in their homes.

Users can also activate the new AirtrackON function, which automatically powers on the sound bar when the compatible Samsung TV is turned on, this allows users to control the HW-F751 with a TV remote control. 

The HW-F751 sports a slim design and separate, wireless subwoofer, making it an ideal companion for the elegant design of any Samsung Smart TV. With its stylish, metal design, the product combines the benefits associated with both vintage and modern technologies.

Samsung 7.1 Channel Home Theatre System (HT-F9750W) - RRP $1,499 available now
Samsung Vacuum Tube Sound bar (HW-F751) - RRP$799 available now

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.
