Samsung HT-AS730 Home Theater System Released

Samsung adds another home theater system option for home theater investing savvy consumers with the HT-AS730. An ideal companion to state-of-the-art Blu-ray players and other high definition gear, the HT-AS730 provides a new level of flexibility and expansion for movie enthusiasts, music lovers and console gamers, in a simple, yet comprehensive package.

Sleek and stylish, the HT-AS730 comes with a piano black design, and is equipped with a variety of audio and video connections, as well as a complete 5.1-channel speaker setup for robust surround sound. The system can also be easily upgraded to a potent 7.1-channel system with the addition of two more speakers (sold separately).

Full HD 1080p video pass through support keeps pictures crisp and detailed on the latest HDTVs, while HD audio pass through support and internal audio decoders ensure theater-like sound to match.
