Samsung’s High End Blu-ray Home Theater in a Box

Coming in at just under $800 this August!

Samsung announced on Tuesday that this August will see the release of their HT-BD3252, a higher end home theater solution with some great features. With 1000 watts of power pumping through a pretty sizable pair of front speakers, an expanded center and a pair of wireless back speakers all using Samsung’s bio kelp speaker cones, the audio coming out of this system will be more than enough for most consumers.

The Blu-ray player integrated into the system is BD Live compatible, and while it does have an Ethernet adapter, a usb dongle is required for wireless connectivity. Customers will have access to Netflix, Pandora, and starting this fall, Blockbuster OnDemand.

Most HD audio formats will be supported, according to Samsung, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and with the Auto Sound Calibration (ASC) Feature, speakers will be adjusted to their optimum output at the touch of a button.

The HT-BD3252 comes stock with a decent range of inputs, including a pair of HDMI ins, an optical port, composite connections, and even an iPhone/iPod cradle with an on screen display for easier browsing.
