    Hi I'm very new so please bare with me. I just got a samsung theater in a box. I was very happy with it when i first got it but I am now noticing distortion. I hear it mostly on higher pitched sounds(violins, trumpets, voices. I contacted Samsung and they believe I should have the amp serviced, which will cost a lot for a brand new machine. What should I do?

    at what volume level are you noticing this distortion? the speakers may not be able to be pushed to hard.

    I wonder about the capability of the HTiB speakers tweeters too. Have you tried diferent speakers? Might save you some down time sending in the amp.

    yeah I'm trying to figure out if it's speakers or amp. To answer your question on volume, 50 being the highest I hear this distortion around 20, so not very loud

    Can you borrow some good speakers from someone to test this?

    Loudness is subjective, do you mean like way below reference levels? roughly 75dB?

    Do you have your speakers set to "small"?
