Product Details

Samsung Black 5.1-Channel Home Theater System, Model HTZ320

The HT-Z320 Home Theater System reveals the smallest details in sight and sound, to deliver the greatest impact from all your digital media. An HDMI connection up-converts output to near 1080p, so your DVDs become instantly crisper and clearer when displayed on your HDTV. With Auto Sound Calibration (ASC), the output from each speaker is balanced for optimal sound reproduction in any room. And every type of audio is delivered with clearer sound and less distortion, thanks to front and center speaker cones made with “green” high-density, bio kelp fibers.

[...] Needed my analog VCR to use analog TV and digital converter box. Also, I needed the VCR to hook my Wii up too. I had to put the Digital converter box and the Wii into the VCR (main and 'line 1') and then take the red and white RCA cables from the VCR audio out and plug them into the Samsung System's analog audio in (there is no analog video in). For the video, (there was no S-Video in or out) I then used a splitter backwards so I could plug a cable out from the Samsung analog video out into one side and the audio out from the VCR into the other side and then plug the resulting single cable into the video in RCA jack on my older model Sony TV. Also, the speakers come pre-wired with very thin wire - maybe 24 gauge (or smaller)? I already had my great room wired with 12 gauge wire (Monster) when I built 12 years ago. I cut off all but a few inches of the thin stuff and drilled big enough holes in the back of the speakers to accommodate the 12 wire and then soldered it directly to the posts inside the (tweeterless) speakers. I would have wired directly inside the receiver too but it would likely have resulted in me soldering something together that shouldn't have been (everything was very close quarters) and creating a short. Had the description been clearer about being pre-wired, I would have went with another system. I didn't want wire all over my large 20'x30' room.That being said, I really like it despite the 4 hours of 'impromptu engineering' Christmas Eve / early morning. Had I not known how to do what I did and had the tools/connectors to do it, this would have remained in the box under the tree as a symbol representing a gift and been promptly returned. Sounds cool. Surround is realistic. Has an auto calibration mic for optimizing the speakers. Wii sounds good. Movies sound good- provided they have 5.1 surround or better. TV sound is awful. Movies rented from iTunes will not play (maybe purchased movies will?) through my iPod Classic via the included iPod dock-though the music sounds good

I bought this because I thought it would be great to have all Samsung components. It works great with just DVDs, but it doesn't work well with BluRay or TV - can't get the sound to the back speakers at all using other components, even with toslink (digital audio cable). I'm sad and wished Samsung had put in 1 or 2 HDMI IN ports here. Will replace as soon as I can afford it.

Comments about Samsung Black 5.1-Channel Home Theater System:

I found this to be a great product. However keep in mind that if you are going to use this product as a home theater connected to your TV you will need an optical digital cable or it will not work with the TV.These cables are NOT included with the unit and will run around 20 bucks

Comments about Samsung Black 5.1-Channel Home Theater System:

There was a problem with older Samsung Surround Sound Systems, but they certainty have fixed it since then. Specifically the fan in the older models, but Samsung has changed the whole design of their newest Samsung Surround Sound systems. This is a great product! Will stay with Samsung through anything. Also the wireless rear speakers are a really cool feature! Buy this system, it's well worth your money.

    Comments about Samsung Black 5.1-Channel Home Theater System:

    Great sound that "fits" well into a 16 X 12 room or smaller. Very direct instructions, and easy to set up. All the controls on both the remote and unit are easy to use. It is not overloaded with features that will never be used. Stylish and compact. If anything, it could use a little bass boost, but that's a matter of taste. Overall, a very intelligent and well made system for this price range, as are all Samsung products that I own!

    Comments about Samsung Black 5.1-Channel Home Theater System:

    The system delivers superior sound quality. The area the system is used in has open spaces which could lead to inferior sound quality, but this system delivered as promised. It also delivers cosmetic appearance which was unexpected.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The delivery was exactly as promised as well as in good packaged order.

        This product offers excellent sound for the size and price. I would definately recommend this product to a friend or to anyone else who just wants a great product at an excellent price. You could purchase much more expensive systems to give you much deeper bass, but why? Unless you are and audiophile or someone who is just too demanding, you can't go wrong with this. I now own several Samsung products, and it is easy to see why they are quickly becoming an electronics powerhouse. Exellent products. Excellent value!
