AV Receiver Line Delivers Premium Audio Experience

Samsung's line of AV Receivers have the new Crystal Amplifier Pro technology, which includes Multi-Variable Feedback Circuitry and Intelligent Power features to ensure accurate sound reproduction. Multi-Variable Feedback Circuitry filters sound distortion and noise to provide pure sound performance. Intelligent Power is applied when listening to music with a high volume variance, delivering power to the amp when the volume suddenly peaks to avoid clipping. These technologies ensure the sounds listeners hear are as close to authentic as possible.

In addition, Samsung's line of receivers comes with 4 HDMI Inputs and supports HDMI 1.4 for 3D as well as iPod/iPhone docks. The HW-C700 comes in two colors, silver and black, while the others come in black and is designed to be paired with the BD-C6500 Blu-ray player. The HW-C900 includes video up-scaling, video up-conversion, and multi-zone functionality.

HW-C770S and the HW-C560S Deliver Complete Home Theater Solutions

For those interested in the best-in-sound experience of these new premium standalone AV Receivers, but want the total package, Samsung is delivering the 7.1 channel HW-C770BS and the 5.1 channel HW-C560S. Both support HDMI 1.4 for 3D, come with 4 HDMI Inputs, and combine a state-of-the-art audio experience with an all-in-one, beautifully designed package that matches the stunning design of other products in the 2010 Samsung home theater and HDTV lineup.
