Samsung introduced its new HT-BD3252 home theater system in the U.S. market.
The Samsung HT-BD3252 provides a theater-like sound at home, with an expanded center channel for clear dialogue reproduction and the inclusion of front tallboy and wireless rear speakers delivering notable audio presence. The system?s 1,000W of total power paired together with Samsung?s crystal amplifier and bio kelp speaker cones allows consumers to enjoy improved audio detail and dynamics. Samsung?s Auto Sound Calibration (ASC) automatically adjusts the speakers to optimum levels and output depending upon their seating position at the touch of a button. Additionally, the system supports decoding of the latest HD audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
The Samsung HT-BD3252 touts video playback with its integrated Blu-ray player, which supports BD-Live interactive content (available on select Blu-ray discs) using either the wired Ethernet port, or wirelessly with the included Wi-Fi USB dongle. Users can instantly stream the latest SD and HD content from Netflix and access Pandora?s library of online music right on their TV (subscriptions required). Starting in the Fall of 2009, BLOCKBUSTER OnDemand service will become available via a future firmware upgrade. For added entertainment options, the HT-BD3252 plays a variety of audio and photo files from a networked PC, a connected USB device, such as a digital camera, or even a portable drive for big-screen sharing. Two HDMI-CEC inputs allow for simple connections to other home entertainment components, while an included iPod/iPhone cradle and onscreen display support make it easy to navigate favorite video and audio using the HT-BD3252?s remote control.
The system will be available in August for $799.
