If you have an “electronically challenged” predisposition to assembling a home entertainment system, your spare time need not go into researching the amps and volts that match one audio input to a video system best. Just browsing through an online Samsung home theater system brochure may be enough for you to have the entertainment center to impress the friends and in-laws the next time they’re around.
Samsung has a wide range of home theater system offerings, some models of which are very affordable and within the reach of average consumers. Some of these models are just within the $400 range but just the same deliver a performance sufficient enough for those who would already be happy some extra audio input.
Consider the Samsung HT-TZ512. It is described as an all-in-one home theater alternative featuring five-disc DVD/CD changer, an iPod dock, and wireless rear speakers. You will be impressed with its strong digital media playback capability on various formats such as DivX, MP3, WMA, WMV, and JPEG. It boasts of a 5.1 surround-sound system that works well with both music and movies. In addition to the DVD and CD playback, the TZ512T features an FM radio tuner. It is XM-ready as well; that by adding an XM Mini-Tuner antenna and having an XM subscription, you can receive satellite radio broadcasts.
You can have an upscaled video of up to 1080-pixel resolution when the HT-TZ512T is linked to an HDTV via HDMI. Some consumers, however, find no reason to bother with this up-scaling as the built-in HDTV video upscale capability in this Samsung home theater system is more than enough for the average television viewer.
