            Dec, 2014 I purchased a Samsung 55� 4K Curved TV and this Samsung home theater system. The whole reason I purchased the sound system was so that it would work well with the TV. At first it seemed to work seamless. Whenever I turned on the TV the sound system would also turn on. It seems after an update the sound system only turns on if I am using it for a DVD. Also, loud scenes are especially loud to contrast against quiet talking scenes that you can barely hear. During a movie I have to continually play a game of turning the volume up, and down. Rear speakers only turn on when volume is above 22 sometimes 24 or during loud scenes. The subwoofer is barely audible. The blueray player also seems to have an under powered processor. Navigating a DVD using the remote takes about 8 seconds for each action from the remote to register with the player and make a change. If you are going to go through the trouble of installing a nice home theater system my recommendation would be to keep looking for another product. You may have to spend more money but it would be worth the wait for better quality.

                This system sounds pretty good and it was a great price for a Blu -Ray Player . I would recommend this product for anybody who's looking to add that theatre feeling to your movie night with the family.

                      The Samsung HT-J4100 produces sound that lacks in quality when listening to music. The sub-woofer is acceptable, but the other speakers sound like they distort with full input volume setting the receiver volume above 14 and it goes to level 50. Admittedly, with full input volume at level 13 is enough to fill a 200 square foot room with sound loud enough to be happy on an average listening basis, but if it gets louder, the sound quality just is not there. Also, the wires that come with the speakers, that you can not change without voiding the warranty, are too short to hide behind a wall and place the speaker to the right of or behind where you will be watching TV. The equalizer has only 6 frequency settings you can adjust. Additionally, the unit will use only "the front speakers" (the two front speakers and the sub-woofer) when you try to listen to anything but a movie that has 5.1 (or higher) surround sound unless you choose the "Master Stereo" equalizer which will result in no frequency volume adjustment to the input source which takes away your ability to raise the bass above the treble or vice versa. When watching a movie, the sound system is actually much better for some reason. However, all it can do is play movies, display pictures, or play music on a disc or USB drive. It does have the ability to receive local radio broadcasts if that interests you, but considering that you got this product, it should be reasonable to assume you would want more control over the songs you listen too than what comes over the airwaves. It does not have any networking ability, so it will not be able to have any apps such as Netflix. In summary, if all you intend to do with this is watch 5.1 (or better) surround sound movies on disc or USB without caring if the wires are under your rug, then this is a good product for you. If you plan on using it primarily to listen to music, or if you want the wires completely out of site (from my experience most women do), get something else.

                            Excellent performance from an exceptionally value priced system. Set up was extremely easy and efficient, all wires color-coded for goof-proof installation. Overall, a great performing system.

                            Comments about Samsung 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System:

                            Not feature-rich or powerful/clear enough for me to want as my home theater, but is perfect for parents, grandparents, or otherwise people who are more concerned with ease of installation and use than they are about fidelity. The sound is very much improved over the prior generation of this model, and there are more digital formats supported for playing from a memory stick or streaming from a media server. Disk loading seems faster than the older model as well. Wish it had either a second zone or an audio out to connect to another amplifier, but I recognize this would increase the installation complexity. Two cons are wiring and power...the wires provided must be like 40 gauge or something, I swear there are only about 5 strands of copper in there. The installation I did involved using existing speaker wires running through the walls over to where the surround speakers mount. This wire is of a decent gauge, but unless you re-terminate using the speaker connectors provided with the unit, you have to use the thin wiring first, then connect to the decent wiring (which I did through a wall plate). I did not want to mangle the Samsung speaker wires, so between their full length, their paltry gauge, and the length of wiring run in the walls/attic, I cannot get as high a relative level on the surround speakers as would be ideal, even cranking down the dB on the front/center and cranking surround to max. So, the system has limitations and doesn't lend itself to any fancy custom installs, but as a simple, out-of-the-box unit for folk without discriminating ears I believe it is a great system.
