Wireless is one of the watch words for this year’s CES and Samsung, one of the heavy hitters when it comes to home entertainment have emphasised that in their new range of shiny boxes designed to delight you in the living room.
Samsung’s Valve Amplified Soundbar (model HW-F750) is the first soundbar to feature a built-in valve amplifier for that old fashioned warm sound that audiophiles cherish. The HW-F750 is also the world’s first soundbar that can wirelessly connect with a TV via its SoundShare function and has picked up a 2013 CES innovation award. Speaker placement can be a tricky business but the HW-F750 features a gyroscope sensor to gauge height, rotation and slope to optimise sound quality, whether the soundbar is placed in a horizontal or vertical position.
I’ve saw countless bluetooth speakers over 2013, but Samsung’s Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (model DA-F60) is attempting to distinguish itself through advanced sound quality and simplicity. The DA-F60 incorporates neodymium magnets and a passive radiator so you should enjoy tuned low-frequency reproduction and virtually no distortion even at high volumes.
The speaker’s integrated NFC connectivity makes it easy for consumers to pair the speaker by simply tapping the two devices together. Additionally, support for Samsung’s SoundShare feature means users can employ the DA-F60 as a TV speaker using wireless connectivity.
Samsung’s 7.1 Channel Home Theatre System (model HT-F9750W) was design to be the ebony to Samsung’s 2013 TVs’ ivory, with a Gallium Nitride (GaN) value amplifier that delivers pure sound, and design and usability features that bring home a totally seamless experience – as long as you subscribe to the Samsung Way.
Samsung’s Premium Blu-ray Player (model BD-F7500) features advanced upscaling capabilities, allowing users to experience ordinary SD and HD content in superior resolution. Yes HD is no longer good enough and now you will have Ultra High Definition content to think about. The BD-F7500 was also a winner of a 2013 CES innovation award.
