Our Review

The system consists of two mid-high speaker towers, a sub-woofer cube and a control module, which contains a Bluetooth/DVD player. Oh, there it is… yeah, there’s a remote control for it too. Everything is finished in glossy black, which Greg and Zach have already covered with fingerprints.

This system is designed to accept any video or audio input there is. I even found a mother-in-law jack on it. Fortunately, it’s a different type of connector than my mother-in-law. It’s Wi-Fi ready, allowing you the option of streaming video from Netflix or music from Pandora. How cool is that? You can even stream video from your computer directly through this system.

Wow, I mean, like, wow! This thing’s got so much capability; I don’t even know where to start. The real winner is connectivity. You can connect anything to it, allowing a great home entertainment experience. Jump from streaming movies to music to looking at video and pictures from your computer at the touch of a button. Connect your iPod, and have music for a party.

Having everything accessible from one place makes for great home entertainment. The Samsung Bluetooth speaker system gives you that. While the sound doesn’t match a true 5.1 surround sound system, in the average living room you’ll still have great sound.

The Look

Sleek, black and shiny. If you don’t have any kids, dogs or ferrets around to mess it up, it’ll stay beautiful for a long time. On the other hand, any of the above mentioned critters will be sure to scratch it up, glob peanut butter and jelly all over it, and use it for to collect fingerprints of all their friends for their next CSI Gopher House episode.


Considering how much can be hooked up to this system, basic hookup really isn’t all that bad. Everything is easily accessible on the back panel and color coded for ease of connection (as long as you aren’t color blind). For those who are color challenged, there are the standard markings you can read.

I haven’t tried hooking everything in the world up to it yet, but it really doesn’t look like it’d be all that bad. I’m just afraid of what Greg and Zach will do with the rats nest of wires. Oh well, at least I don’t have to worry about the headphone cable, it’s Bluetooth.

Sound Quality

For a 2.1 system, it’s really got some great sound. Samsung advertises it as a replacement for a 5.1 system, but hey, it’s not. A true 5.1 system is going to blow it away. I don’t care how much the manufacturer talks about “simulating” surround sound; simulation just isn’t the same as the real thing. So, don’t expect some sort of new wizardry; good sound, yes; surround sound, no.

Should you buy it?

If I had that $799 price tag staring me in the face, I’d be looking for the door. But, at today’s street prices, this is a really great system. Don’t just believe us Old Gopher’s, everyone else has said the same thing. Samsung came out with a winner when they delivered this Bluetooth speaker system.
