RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--()--Samsung Electronics America, Inc, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today introduced its latest vacuum tube innovations to its home theater lineup. Delivering full cinematic and lifelike sound to enhance the home theater experience, the powerful Soundbar (HW-F850) and the versatile 7.1 Channel Home Theater System (HT-F9730W) offer one of the best digital and analog sound technologies with the convenience and ease of wireless connectivity.

Built to immerse viewers with a complete cinematic experience, the HW-F850 and HT-F9730W create an unparalleled soundscape. Powering the two products is an amplifier that gives listeners the best of both worlds – the warmth of analog vacuum tubes and the power and efficiency of digital amplification. A wide range of built-in wireless capabilities enable easy set-up and seamless sharing of content across mobile devices and Samsung Smart TV sets.

“As consumers demand bigger and better TVs, they’re also looking for great sound to complete their home theater experience,” says Jim Kiczek, director of digital audio and video at Samsung Electronics America. “Our latest additions to our vacuum tube products deliver warm and authentic sound, a sleek, modern design, and hassle-free set-up and playback, whether customers are looking for a soundbar or a complete home theater system.”

Samsung Soundbar (HW-F850)

The HW-F850 builds on technology used in the vacuum-tube and digital amp based HW-F750, adding 40W of sound power (350W total) and deeper bass by incorporating a larger 8” subwoofer and adding 10” to the length to make it the first Samsung soundbar especially suited for 60-inch and larger TVs. The glowing vacuum-tube preamp combines the warmth and natural sound of analog with the latest digital audio technology to deliver a rich and powerful sound.

The HW-F850’s wireless capabilities make it easy for consumers to set-up and use as they see fit and the slim and sleek design also incorporates a wireless subwoofer, making it an ideal companion for the premium design of any Samsung Smart TV. Samsung’s SoundShare function enables users to wirelessly connect the soundbar to a Samsung Smart TV via Bluetooth, and built-in Near-Field Communication (NFC) capability allows users to pair their NFC-capable devices to the system simply by touching the two devices together.

The soundbar can lie horizontally on a home entertainment center or be wall mounted with the supplied mounting hardware, while the built-in positioning sensor will gauge height, rotation and slope to optimize sound quality, no matter how the soundbar is placed. Combined with the wireless features, this virtually eliminates restrictions on where consumers can place the HW-F850 in their homes.

Samsung 7.1 Channel Home Theater System (HT-F9730W)

The HT-F9730 elevates the complete home theater experience with the latest in surround sound and media player technology. The system offers one of the best 3D audio offering on the market, incorporating DTS Neo Fusion technology that adds front-height and surround-height sound effects to create a spatial dimension unheard of in home systems, until now. The system also incorporates Samsung’s vacuum-tube and digital amp technology, offering the world’s first home theater with GaN AMP technology which reduces unnecessary and harsh sound distortion from the digital amp to deliver clear, pure sound.

The HT-F9730 system boasts a 7.1-channel, 1,330-watt offering, along with new carbon nanotube diaphragms which speed up speaker reaction time and an enhanced Power Bass.

WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities make it easy to access the Internet or stream content from mobile devices. The rear speaker module can also be set up wire-free, requiring only AC power access which alleviates the necessity of connecting wires from the front of the room to the rear for easy, clutter-free surround set-up.

The HT-F9730’s Smart Blu-ray player uses Samsung’s Smart Hub interface to offer a streamlined way to search for and access all of your content and more. Smart Hub includes a full web browser, cutting-edge TV Apps, and an S-Recommendation service that will help you find something to watch, now or next time. The player also includes Samsung’s best-in-class 4K upscaling technology, which allows upconversion of any type of content into a crisp and crystal-clear picture with four times the resolution of Full HD.

Available now, the HW-F850 and HT-F9730W retail for $1299 and $999 respectively.
