I am planning to buy samsung ht-f5500w/za. I would like to have a look at few reviews before i finalize my decision. To my surprise, I could not find any reviews (user reviews or official reviews) in net. Please let me know your experience with this system if you own one or guide me where I can find the reviews on it.
Also, could not figure out whats the main difference between ht-e5500w and this model. Any information on the comparison?
Proprietary speaker wire connections means that it will be difficult to upgrade the speakers should you want to. 5-way binding posts gives you the best flexibility.
Wireless side speakers do work well but can be subject to interference at times. And they are only wireless is the sense that there is no wire running back to the receiver. You still have to plug them into an outlet and then wire the two speakers together (usually).
Just things to consider.
Sound is very good, Music is good enough (not excellent) and the blu ray player is snappy an responds quickly...
SO, i liked:
-Easy connection & set-up (even though i use the wired version as explained)
-Fast blu-ray player
-Very Good sound on movies, good for listening music
-Does have a front led screen that displays info (play time, fm station, which input is being used)
-HDMI input & bluetooth!
-good media player (from the one usb placed in front of the unit)
I didn't like:
-Smart hub is quite slow for a dual core processor
-small Led screen in front makes using without a TV (Fm radio for example) quite hard
-Music is good enough but is nowhere near top (Woofer is good but differentiates too much from the rest of the system, speakers are good enough for their size). Let me repeat: GOOD, not bad, just not "too good" or "top" like i read from some users reviews...
- No info (on the front led screen) of what source audio you hear (DTS?, DD?, stereo?) from the inputs (i use an optical input and would like to see what type of Audio the unit receives).
- No 2d to 3d conversion (i actually don't care a bit about that feature but mention it anyway).
I'm awating arrival of this unit. On display at BJ Wholesale, the gloss black plastic looks much cheaper than official online pictures.
The no-rear speaker sound could be because input source is only Stereo (2.1) not SurroundSound (5.1). There should be a mode setting to simulate surround sound from a stereo source.
