Active Speaker System
This unit features an Active Speaker System that provides high sound quality in a single slim unit.
This unit does not require any satellite loudspeakers or speaker cabling, which are normally associated with
conventional surround sound systems.
Multi-function Remote Control
The supplied remote control can be used to control the TV connected to this unit.
The remote control has a TV hotkey that enables you to perform various operations with the simple press of a button.
You can adjust the volume, change the channel or customize the navigation menu of the TV using this Multi-function Remote
Control.
Special Sound Field mode
You can select from 7 different sound field modes (NEWS, DRAMA, SPORTS, GAME, CINEMA, MUSIC and PASS
(Original Sound)) depending on the type of content you want to enjoy.
Compatibility with various audio Technologies
This unit employs decoders compatible with Dolby Digital, DTS (Digital Theater Systems) and SFE (Sound Field Effect).
− Dolby Digital
his is the standard audio signal format used on DVDs and other purely digital media.
T
This surround technology delivers high-quality digital audio of up to 5.1 discrete channels to produce a
directional and more realistic effect.
− DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
DTS provides a discrete 5.1 CH digital audio signal for both music and movie contents and uses less
compression than Dolby Digital for richer sound.
− SFE (Sound Field Effect) Using 32bit Audio Digital Signal Processing
Provides more realistic surround sound with normal stereo audio sources.
Wireless Subwoofer
Samsung’s wireless module does away with cables running between the main unit and the subwoofer.
Instead, the subwoofer connects to a compact wireless module that communicates with the main unit.
