Products highlights include:

  *Samsung’s Vacuum Tube Soundbar (model HW-F750) is the first soundbar to
    feature a built-in vacuum tube to maximize sound quality, and is the
    world’s first soundbar that can wirelessly connect with a TV via
    Bluetooth.
  *Samsung’s Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (model DA-F60) brings
    advanced sound quality with an apt-X codec, while offering the simplicity
    of Near-Field Communications (NFC) connectivity.
  *Samsung’s 7.1 Channel Home Theater System (model HT-F9750W) was created to
    be the perfect counterpart for Samsung’s 2013 TVs, with a Gallium Nitride
    (GaN) amplifier that delivers pure sound, and design and usability
    features that bring home a totally seamless experience.
  *Samsung’s Premium Blu-ray Player (model BD-F7500) features advanced
    upscaling capabilities, allowing users to experience ordinary SD and HD
    content in superior resolution.

“With the advances in picture displays, consumers also need to be able to
complement their viewing experience with high quality home theater products,”
said Sunny Lee, Executive Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung
Electronics. “Today’s product introductions prove that consumers can enjoy
premium sound and cutting-edge design without sacrificing convenience,
simplicity or ease of use.”

As testament to Samsung’s leadership in innovation, design and engineering,
the Samsung HW-F750 Soundbar and Samsung BD-F7500 Smart Blu-ray Player have
each been awarded a 2013 CES Innovation Award. The new line of home theater
products will be on display at Samsung’s booth, located at #12004 in the
Central Hall at the 2013 International CES, which will be held at the Las
Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from January 8-11, 2013.

Warmer, immersive sounds without hassle or distortion

Samsung’s Vacuum Tube Soundbar (model HW-F750) resolves consumers’ desire for
pure power and warm, natural sound by integrating a vacuum tube amplifier into
a soundbar for the first time.

Additionally, the HW-750 offers the ultimate in convenience with its
SoundShare function, which enables users to wirelessly connect the soundbar to
a TV via Bluetooth. Meanwhile, the product’s gyroscope sensor gauges height,
rotation and slope to optimize sound quality, whether the soundbar is placed
in a horizontal or vertical position. Combined, these features virtually
eliminate restrictions on where consumers can place the HW-750 in their homes.

Adding to the product’s ease of use, users can activate the new AirtrackON
function, which automatically powers on the soundbar when the TV is turned on,
and allows users to control the HW-F750 with a TV remote control. The HW-F750
sports a slim design and separate, wireless subwoofer, making it an ideal
companion for the premium design of any Samsung Smart TV. With its stylish,
metal design, the product combines the best that vintage and modern
technologies have to offer.

The ultimate in portable wireless sound

Samsung’s Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (model DA-F60) offers sound
quality and simplicity, whether consumers are at home or on the go. The
speaker’s integrated Near-Field Communications (NFC) connectivity makes it
easy for consumers to pair the speaker with other NFC devices, such as a
smartphone or tablet, by simply tapping the two devices together.
Additionally, support for Samsung’s SoundShare feature means users can employ
the DA-F60 as a TV speaker using wireless Bluetooth connectivity.

The DA-F60 incorporates neodymium magnets and a passive radiator to produce
results typically found in high-end Hi-Fi audio systems, including tuned
low-frequency reproduction and virtually no distortion even at high volumes.
Users will also enjoy improved performance and a high-quality experience with
the built in apt-X codec technology, which boosts the Bluetooth speaker’s
extensive dynamic range, particularly at the top end.

Weighing only three pounds, the Samsung DA-F60 is an ideal audio companion
that combines both fidelity and portability to reproduce full-range audio
outside the home.

A superb combination of the highest quality audio and picture

Samsung’s 7.1 Channel Home Theater System (model HT-F9750W) was created to be
the perfect counterpart for a Samsung 2013 TV, with design and usability that
bring home a totally seamless experience. The new TV Sound On feature allows
users to instantly activate the system’s 1,330-watt sound while muting the
internal TV speaker with a single click of the remote control. This flagship
HTS incorporates Samsung’s proprietary vacuum tube and digital amplifier, as
well as the latest in Smart TV features to create the best entertainment
experience available.

For a larger-than-life experience comparable to that of a movie theater, the
HT-F9750W offers the multi-dimensional sound of a swivel speaker, coupled with
a new DTS® Neo fusion codec – exclusive to Samsung – that further enhances
vertical sound to deliver unprecedented sound quality to the home. A Gallium
Nitride (GaN) amplifier can handle a sound range beyond the typical audible
frequency range. Paired with a vacuum tube pre-amplifier, consumers will enjoy
true, natural sound with minimal distortion. A Ceramic Polypropylene Injection
Diaphragm (CPID) speaker expands sound resolution so every note is distinct.

The exceptional picture quality of the HT-F9750W is immediately noticeable,
even on the Ultra-High Definition (UHD) TV sets coming to market in 2013.
Samsung’s 4K Scaler Processor generates true-to-life pictures with vivid
colors, and also upscales high-definition content to UHD-level picture
quality.

The Blu-ray component of the HT-F9750W can run multiple apps simultaneously,
and also offers Samsung’s latest Smart Hub® and AllShare® features. This
1,330-watt system is an excellent addition for any audiophile looking for the
finest home entertainment experience.

Enhanced picture performance and speed

Samsung’s Premium Blu-ray Player (model BD-F7500) enhances the joy of watching
your favorite movies by transforming ordinary SD and HD content into a
superior resolution, such as that delivered by Ultra High Definition
(UHD)-supported televisions. This slim player offers a dual-core processor and
Samsung’s Smart TV technologies including Smart Hub® and AllShare®, so that
users can enjoy unparalleled picture performance through an intuitive,
streamlined user interface.

The BD-F7500 is an aesthetic study in black and silver, simultaneously modern,
yet classic. Its minimalist high-gloss black finish contrasts with the unit’s
aluminum trim, and complements the same design qualities found on many
high-end flat-panel displays that feature black lacquered finishes set off by
silver bezels.

The BD-F7500’s video processor includes a proprietarySamsung algorithm that
improves the visual quality of block-based low bit-rate coded images and
reduces blocking artifacts. This feature is especially important for
maximizing the visual quality of content streamed from the Internet, as well
asimproving the quality of picture sharpness. Furthermore, the unit’s 900MHz
x 2 high-performance dual-core chipset boosts the unit’s image processing
capacity so consumers can enjoy the highest picture quality and the fastest
web-browsing speed.
