As testament to Samsung’s leadership in innovation, design and engineering, the Samsung HW-F750 Soundbar and Samsung BD-F7500 Smart Blu-ray Player have each been awarded a 2013 CES innovation award. The new line of home theatre products will be on display at Samsung’s booth, located at no. 12004 in the Central Hall at the 2013 International CES, which will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from January 8th-10th 2013.
Warmer, immersive sounds without hassle or distortion
Samsung’s Valve Amplified Soundbar (model HW-F750) resolves consumers’ desire for pure power and warm, natural sound by integrating a valve amplifier into a soundbar for the first time.
Additionally, the HW-750 offers the ultimate in convenience with its SoundShare function, which enables users to wirelessly connect the soundbar to a compatible TV. Meanwhile, the product’s gyroscope sensor gauges height, rotation and slope to 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-750 in their homes.
Adding to the product’s ease of use, users can activate the new AirtrackON function, which automatically powers on the soundbar when the TV is turned on, and allows users to control the HW-F750 with a TV remote control. The HW-F750 sports a slim design and separate, wireless subwoofer, making it an ideal companion for the premium design of any Samsung Smart TV. With its stylish, metal design, the product combines the best that vintage and modern technologies have to offer.
The ultimate in portable wireless sound
Samsung’s Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (model DA-F60) offers sound quality and simplicity, whether consumers are at home or on the go. The speaker’s integrated Near-Field Communications (NFC) connectivity makes it easy for consumers to pair the speaker with portable devices such as a mobile phone or tablet, 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.
The DA-F60 incorporates neodymium magnets and a passive radiator to produce results typically found in high-end Hi-Fi audio systems, including tuned low-frequency reproduction and virtually no distortion even at high volumes. Users will also enjoy improved performance and a high-quality experience with the built in lossless wireless technology, which boosts the Bluetooth speaker’s extensive dynamic range, particularly at the top end.
The Samsung DA-F60 is an ideal audio companion that combines both fidelity and portability to reproduce full-range audio outside the home.
A superb combination of the highest quality audio and picture
Samsung’s 7.1 Channel Home Theatre System (modelHT-F9750W) was created to be the perfect counterpart for a Samsung 2013 TV, with design and usability that bring home a totally seamless experience. The new TV Sound On feature allows users to instantly activate the system’s 1330-watt sound while muting the internal TV speaker with a single click of the remote control. This flagship HTS incorporates Samsung’s proprietary valve amplifier, as well as the latest in Smart TV features to create the best entertainment experience available.
For a larger-than-life experience comparable to that of a movie theatre, the HT-F9750W offers the multi-dimensional sound of a swivel speaker, coupled with a new DTS® Neo fusion processor – exclusive to Samsung – that further enhances vertical sound to deliver unprecedented sound quality to the home. A Gallium Nitride (GaN) amplifier can handle a sound range beyond the typical audible frequency range. Paired with a valve amplifier, consumers will enjoy true, natural sound with minimal distortion. The exceptional picture quality of the HT-F9750W is immediately noticeable, even on the Ultra-High Definition (UHD) TV sets coming to market in 2013. Samsung’s 4K Processor generates true-to-life pictures with vivid colours, and also upscales high-definition content to UHD-level picture quality.
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 1330-watt system is an excellent addition for any audiophile looking for the finest home entertainment experience.
Enhanced picture performance and speed
Samsung’s Premium Blu-ray Player (model BD-F7500) enhances the joy of watching your favourite movies by transforming ordinary SD and HD content into a superior resolution, such as that delivered by Ultra High Definition (UHD)-supported televisions. This slim player offers a dual-core processor and Samsung’s Smart TV technologies including Smart Hub® and AllShare®, so that users can enjoy unparalleled picture performance through an intuitive, streamlined user interface.
The BD-F7500 is an aesthetic study in black and silver, simultaneously modern, yet classic. Its minimalist high-gloss black finish contrasts with the unit’s aluminium trim, and complements the same design qualities found on many high-end flat-panel displays that feature black lacquered finishes set off by silver bezels.
The BD-F7500’s video processor includes a proprietary Samsung algorithm that improves the visual quality of block-based low bit-rate coded images and reduces blocking artifacts. This feature is especially important for maximising the visual quality of content streamed from the Internet, as well as improving the quality of picture sharpness. Furthermore, the unit’s 900MHz x 2 high-performance dual-core chipset boosts the unit’s image processing capacity so consumers can enjoy the highest picture quality and the fastest web-browsing speed.
