Video and Audio
This Samsung DVD Home Theater is capable of impressive streaming speeds for smooth and stutter-free playback.

The Samsung HT-D555K features a built-in DTS, Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic II decoder for realistic five channel surround processing, down to the last sonic detail. The Power Bass processing captures the lower level frequencies and recreates them into audible range to deliver a booming bass effect with added thump.

There are quite a few variables to be taken into account before you invest in a Home Theater System. A 5.1 Home Theater receiver is perfectly adequate to deliver true surround sound experience and is ideal for small to medium size rooms (less than 250 square feet). The major factors to consider when buying a Home Theater system include required volume levels, connectivity options and speaker placement.
If you own a Digital TV, the Progressive Scan capability in the HT-D555K can render smoother image transitions. The Samsung HT-D555K would make an ideal Home Theater System for music buffs as it supports MP3 encoded on CD-R, DVD-R, DVD-RW and CD-RW discs.
If you are concerned about unsightly wire tangles in your living space, the ARC (Audio Return Channel) in this DVD Home Theater and Wireless Speaker support ensures minimal cables running around your Home Theater System. HDMI and Component-video output in the Samsung HT-D555K relays the best possible picture quality, especially if you own a HD Ready TV.
As a general thumb rule, the more surfaces near a speaker, the greater the likelihood of unpleasant distortions and colorations in your sound. For the best listening experience, the speakers should be placed at least two feet from room boundaries. The Center Speaker should be placed above or below the TV at ear level. The Front Left and Right Speakers should be 5 to 11 feet apart, at an angle of 20 to 30 Degree with respect to the Television. The Surround Speaker should be placed above ear level, slightly behind the listener.
