Samsung's 2013 home theater line: Giga Sound System and lots of tubes (pictures)
Samsung's press event in New York featured its new 2013 home theater offerings, including a jumbo karaoke system and lots of vacuum tubes.
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 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.
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.
