Samsung MX-FS9000 Giga Sound System

While most of the products at Samsung's press event in New York were already debuted at CES 2013, it's the first time we've seen the MX-FS9000 Giga Sound System. It's a jumbo-size 2.2-channel stereo system decked out with 15-inch subwoofer and 2,560 watts of power. The Giga Sound System is slated to be released in May for $1,499.

Samsung HT-F6500W

Samsung was also showing off its midrange home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) system, the HT-F6500W ($599). It's a 5.1 system with a wireless subwoofer, wireless rear speakers and built-in Blu-ray player capable of accessing Samsung's Smart TV suite of streaming-media services.

Samsung's tube obsession

Like many Samsung home audio products this year, the HT-F6500W also features glowing vacuum tubes on the main unit. The tubes probably won't make the HT-F6500W sound better, but they give the system an interesting look.

Samsung HW-F550

Samsung also had the skinny HW-F550 ($400) sound bar on display. It's hard to imagine a big sound coming from a sound bar so thin, but at least it has a wireless sub to help fill out the sound.

Samsung DA-F60

Bluetooth speakers are everywhere these days, but Samsung DA-F60 manages to look nicer than most, with a convenient flip-up cover that's built-into the design.
