Official Samsung HT-E6730W / HT-E6750W Owner's Thread

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Only difference between HT-E6730W / HT-E6750W is the later has a tall boy surround speakers in AU market, while E6730W in US market with only small surround speakers.

Pros:
  • Good Sound quality when turned on 3D sound option (High/Medium/Low) to activate Simulated 7.1 channels
  • Wireless Surround Speakers can pick up signals with no delays
  • Vacuum tubes which boosts up sound performance


Cons:
  • Audio Sync (Lip Sync) option only works for Bluray Source, It doesn't adjust the sound delay for Optical / Digital Input, Neither for the Direct Media File playback from the Front USB panel. (To be Confiemed), Hoping Samsung will have a firmware update to solve this issue.
  • Not a true 7.1 channel system, does Not support "Dolby Pro Logic IIz". Samsung implement its own "3D Sound" feature, which has the same spec as "Dolby Pro Logic IIz" adding extra two channel to the front top speakers. Maybe they are trying to cut down the cost by not paying for the extra Dolby license fee.
  • No Direct input Source button / IR command; this makes Universal Remote (such as Logitech Harmony) have to run through a Source Cycle, Most of the time it will not reach to the desired source input due to timing, fine tune is needed.


Please feel free to add your opinions here.

I bought this set on boxing day and I'm having a buzzing noise issue. It sounds like it's from the power supply. I can hear the buzz even if nothing is connected to the amp. It's always present, even when the amp is powered off. I already exchanged the amp for another one and it has the same issue. The buzz is loud enough that I can hear it from a fair distance and is very distracting when watching a movie.

Anyone else having this issue?

I have a week left to return it and I'm not sure what to do.

Amp Humping noise is problem probably introduced by a ground loop in your home theatre system, it is not a defect with your new sound system. Maybe from your TV antenna or from your cable TV set top box. Anyway, to eliminate ground loop, you can buy a device call ground loop isolator, and attach to your sound source output or your antenna.

I don't think this is a ground loop problem since the amp has the buzzing sound even if nothing else is connected to the amp. Ie: no speakers, no ethernet, no hdmi. The electrical wiring is brand new and other devices/amps work fine. For a ground loop to occur, there need to be other cables connected to the amp.

Also, the noise is a high pitched sound with a higher frequency than 60Hz. It sounds like a plasma TV buzz except that it's constant even when powered off.

Hi everybody.

Just bought yesterday and setup today , I hv no problem for buzz sound issue.

I just know from above comment HT-E6750 is not real 7.1

The seller lie to me frown.gif and told me it 's real 7.1

Do we have night mode (Compressed sound ) ??

Hi Boyopo,
You are right, it is not a true 7.1 channel, if ever the BD movie has 7.1 track, the two rear channels will be ignored. But technically it has 7.1 channels with samsung's own implementation.
I can not find a night mode either, but the remote does has a button to adjust sub woofer volume directly., I guess you can reduce that bass volume at night to avoid disturbing the neighbor.

Thank for your advice MickeyJC.

Anyway onething I need to know ,When I listen Radio or music,I hear sound only from the front speaker only. How can we play multi-chanel ,to get sound from all speakers.

I try to push all the button on remote but don't have any function to enable multi-speakers.

To enable multi channels for Music (Rear-iPod or iPod direct from front USB OR CD music), you can use "3D Sound" or "Sound Effect" functions.
However, "3D sound" does not Support in FM Radio mode, you can still use "Sound Effect" functions though.

Hi, net8eit
Yes, This happens to me too. It looks like a design flaw. The Audio Sync only works for Bluray Disc playback, not for the USB movies.mad.gif

Anyone who knows if there is any options to wall-mount the front speakers on the 6750w system? I would like to only use the "top module" and not the stand/foot
post #13 of 24
I recently set up one of these systems in my bedroom. What sound & video settings would you recommend for primarily watching movies?

It seems Wall mount only available for rear speakers, not the Front. However, if you have strong DIY skills, you can always DIY the connector of the front speakers.

I normally use 3D Medium sound setting.

I have the HT-E6730 and just got a pair of Pioneer floor speakers and center channel (SP-FS52 & SP-C22). Is it wise to hook those speakers to this system? Will it effect the speakers in anyway? The speakers were given to me and I would like to use them without having to buy a receiver.
post #17 of 24
Hi all, do you know if the E6730W or E6750w have different input voltage ratings, depending on where you buy them. Specifically, if i purchase from amazon.com will I get a US power rated system which will not work in Ireland {220-240v}? I am hoping the systems are rated for all voltages.
post #18 of 24
Hello HT-E6750 owners,

Will you recommend buying HT-E6750 for $800 ..or Configuring the system like Denon 1713 + Cambridge Audio 51. set ?

Honest Suggestions invited..given basic issues like Audio sync happening .

Thanks
Airan

Im quite disappointed with this unit. Why would they make it so i cant sync the audio with USB media, Netflix, hulu, etc.... I found this out too late to return the device. Are there plans to fix this? seems like a firmware update could fix it. I mean its ridiculous to have a smart device that cant play nice with any of the streaming video apps... WTF BOOOOO SAMSUNG

I've got the same problem when streaming video through all share. Is there a way to fix this?

I recently bought the HT-E6730W/ZA from BestBuy store. I got a good deal on the last new unopened-box from the store for $650. I love the system, very good crisp and clear sound and decent bass. I updated the firmware and the browser and installed the Naked Trailers app. i do not experience any lag or sync issue in audio while watching trailers on Naked Trailers. Did not try Netflix yet. I use the Panasonic P60ST60 TV with HDMI cable from Saphire (with directional sound and Ethernet support) connected on the HDMI-ARC port of the TV. When I turn the TV ON to Antenna, the system recognizes the TV and plays sound from the TV automatically. Also, the TV mutes the internal speakers automatically when this happens. Changing volume can be done either with the TV or the HTIB remote. Really nice! No audio lag there either. Also, some antenna TV shows are presented in 5.1 and it works great, all through a HDMI cable.
Many people complain that this is not a true 7.1 system, but looking at how many speaker plugs there are in the back of the unit, I dare to contradict them: there are plugs for Center, Left, Right, Subwoofer, Top Left, Top Right and a Wireless card that connects Rear Right and Rear Left. Doing the math, that's a total of 8 separate speakers/channels (hence 7.1). The Left and Top Left and Right and Top Right share the same enclosure, which I am fine with it because the Top speakers can be tilted to point to the ground or the ceiling causing a sound reflection and surround effect - in my opinion this is better then having another set of speakers to hang from the wall. When I installed the system I did not have to put a nail in the wall, no holes for the wires, nothing - which is perfect, installation is quick and easy and won't be a hassle to move the system to a different room should I ever need to do that.
The web browser works much better than the one in the Panasonic TV, it actually supports Flash. The menus are also faster than the TV, so I am happy I purchased a different brand than the TV, giving me more options to watch online content. The Samsung remote is also much better and intuitive.
If you are on the fence with this system, go for it. I noticed that Amazon does not have it in stock and it's pretty hard to find on other stores too.
Watch-out for ridiculous prices though, I would not pay more than $700 for it at this time - and, according to the BB rep., it is supposed to go down in price even more soon.
The fact that Consumer Reports is recommending this system, also played an important role in my decision. At this time, it's the only HTIB system with blu-ray that they recommend.

Hi. I'm into a year of using this htib and since day 1 I threw the stock speakers into the trash. I have no idea what they sound like. I have excellent satellites by Polk and an SVS sub. It's great in that it feels like I have continuity of frequencies, however the sub stops at 58Hz!! Wth is that all about? My SVS can no longer produce the supersonic below 20Hz vibrations it used to! I miss my shaking doors and glass!

I screwed myself in buying this device going from an amazing high end Yamaha av receiver because my wife decided to get one of those electric fireplaces and it would not fit in the slots.

Does anyone know of a solution to fix this? I looked at some slim av receivers but then I would need a bluray player. What would you guys do?

8 channels does not automatically make it 7.1 as per Dolby standards. The two additional channels are front high which produces a height effect for the front speakers. On my previous Yamaha receiver those were also options but it also had true Dolby 7.1 where you have rear backs and side back channels.

I've seen here that the audio sync doesn't work for anything but the blu-ray.  Just making sure I'm on the same page.  I cannot currently equalize, or modify speaker settings for anything coming through on HDMI1 or HDMI2.  (which is what I currently connect my cable box and PS3 through.)

 

I've also found Netflix to be extremely slow to connect, so slow that I switch over to my PS3 to connect.  Anyone else experience this?
