Samsung Expands Line with Vacuum Tube Amplifiers

Apr 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Samsung Electronics announced the availability of new products incorporating vacuum tube amplifiers.

In a release, the Company noted that the Samsung DA-E750 Audio Dock, Samsung HT-E6530 3D Blu-ray 5.1 Home Entertainment System and Samsung HT-E6730W 3D Blu-ray 7.1 Home Entertainment System will be shipping this spring in Canada.

Samsung's patented vacuum tube amplifier technology, which uses a long-lasting heated cathode inside a glass bulb to amplify sound, offer a warmer, more natural sound compared to conventional products utilizing transistors.

The vacuum tube is also combined with a digital amplifier, which delivers crystal clear sound and reduces unnecessary harsh sound distortions.

"With these offerings we're taking our first step into a commitment to the premium audio market," said James Politeski, President, Samsung Canada. "Audio plays a critical factor in the overall home entertainment experience, and the premium sound quality achieved through our innovative vacuum tube amplifiers will allow consumers to continue to pursue their passions." Consumers will be able to use the DA-E750 with Galaxy S II smartphones (Galaxy Note and Galaxy Player) as well as Apple iOS devices. Its 2.1-channel woven glass fiber speakers and powerful built-in subwoofer deliver 100 watts of crystal clear sound with enhanced bass for a quality music experience.

Consumers can use Samsung's AllShare to share multimedia content between the audio dock and compatible smartphones, tablets, cameras and computers, or AirPlay to stream audio from iOS devices. The DA-E750 also includes analog (composite) input and connectivity via Bluetooth to MP3, WMA and WAV files from a broad range of devices - thumb drives, portable hard drives, music players and mobile devices - for the ultimate in flexibility.

The sleek high gloss wood finish is available in either mahogany or piano black, which is accentuated by the warm glow from the vacuum tubes inside the docks when in operation. For added convenience, the audio dock will simultaneously charge the Galaxy S II or iOS device while streaming music.

Samsung's 3D Blu-ray Home Entertainment System, the HT-E6730W, offers high-definition audio and video for the home entertainment room. The HT-E6730W is a 1,330-watt 7.1-channel system with two tower speakers and four additional speakers. Innovative swivel speakers are mounted on the specially designed front height speakers and may be turned upwards so sounds vertically cascade down onto the listener.

The two rear wireless satellite speakers may be placed anywhere in the room without the need for additional wires to create a truly immersive vertical surround sound experience. A dual-unit passive radiator subwoofer provides bass response.

Samsung's vacuum tube pre-amplifier may be seen on the front and top of the system. Samsung's Crystal Amp Plus technology offers pure digital audio playback and quality while also protecting listeners from unexpected jumps in volume.

The HT-E6730W seamlessly up-converts content to 1080p from a variety of sources, including DVDs, streaming video and connected media devices. Each home theater system employs a Samsung-developed system-on-a-chip, which has enhancement algorithms, Samsung's video processor and scaler, and various high definition codecs. The system also comes with built-in Wi-Fi for easy access to Samsung Smart Hub and AllShare.

Newly designed for 2012, Samsung Smart Hub allows consumers to download apps and use the web browser surf the Internet. They can also interact with friends and family using popular social networking services such as Facebook or Twitter.

The features of the HT-E6730W are also included in a 1,000 watt, 5.1 version, the Samsung HT-E6530 3D Blu-ray 5.1 Home Entertainment System. The HT-E6530 includes two tall speakers, satellite surrounds, centre channel and subwoofer.

Samsung Electronics Canada is a provider of digital consumer electronics, IT, telecommunications and home appliance products.
