Samsung BD-P 3600

On austerity Samsung was not truly when it came to the equipment of their new heroes. This is noticeable when looking at the back of the device: in addition to the popular video – and audio connections (HDMI, component, S/PDIF and Toslink) eight more RCA outputs reveal that were treated also 7.1 decoder for high-definition audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master audio

This feature is especially interesting when the in-house AV receiver supports any multichannel audio via HDMI and thus is not suitable for the processing of HD information. The high-resolution audio material can be deciphered here alternatively in the player and passed via an RCA connection to an amplifier. So, also owner of older stereos to enjoy of finest HD sounds can come and save yourself a new receiver.
Ethernet interfaces can be not just an idea, that’s the Samsung Blu-ray discs, DVDs and handle CDs, but thanks to the Blu-ray profile 2.0 in order to data feed also with the Internet in contact can occur. Even wirelessly via an enclosed wireless LAN adapter that is connected to one of the two USB ports.
The latter provide by the way even more data input in the form of DivX movies, MP3 music and JPEG photos that are used via USB memory stick and the Samsung BD-P 3600 even optionally via external USB hard drives. All in all it’s home theater with this versatile Swiss knives for rather small multimedia centres as to pure player for rotating discs.
But one thing was eventually saved: place in the AV rack. The electronics of Blu-ray players hidden so far often in Beefy chassis with high front panel, presents the new generation of flat, elegant housings, which are filled up under the lid with the high-quality components. Especially Samsung proves this courage to a slightly fancier design: the rounded, tapering, and polished to a high gloss exterior of the BD-P 3600 could serve equally well as a prop for a science fiction movie. Only, the touch-sensitive drive buttons on the top indicate that it must be this probably an AV Player.
Who wants to save a droning disk in the living room itself, takes on a further bonus of devices like. Not only the rare additional content for Blu-ray movies (BD-live) from the Internet can be downloaded via the rear Ethernet (RJ-45) jacks. The BD P_3600 also acts as a streaming client, by he gets movies, pictures and music from a local computer network. Here to access shared media libraries of servers or network hard disks. This represented after the correct settings in the network settings, hit menu just like external USB media, as an additional drive. Why the device despite internal memory does not remember the network settings after switching off, remains a mystery.
Samsung opts for a purist but always logical menu where all options are available in the same window. This saves time and above all nerves in the configuration. In addition to common sound options, such as the dynamic compression the size of the speakers in the system can be adjusted on each device.
HD-ready AV receiver can be powered by the HDMI outputs of the Blu-ray player with audio data streams. In the menu of Samsung there is equal to two modes: “Audiophile” and “New encoding”. The latter is the film soundtrack with all additional tracks in a data-reduced version. So audio commentaries from the bonus material or button sounds menu, which usually are not available in HD sound format, are fully preserved. For Dolby TrueHD or DTS master audio sound advantage is lost.
Now we want to know it. What are the picture – and sound quality do you expect from a 400-euro players? We first look at the Samsung BD-P 3600 DVD playback quality and use the DVD of Star Wars Episode III – challenging material for scaler and deinterlacer for this purpose.
The first impression will take us the language. Irritated, we look that really only a DVD is inserted. No doubt: The here offered spectacle is one of the best DVD player can perform. The contours are sharp as drawn with a razor blade, colours appear strong and bright, the contrast gradation allows a filigree detail view. At first glance, the difference compared to real HD material is difficult to make out. Here, the image processing in the scaling of the PAL image to 1920 time 1080 pixels provides excellent work. Unfortunately a possibility for custom image setting was saved for the BD-P 3600.
With the special effects and fine detail on the Blu-ray of the stone age adventure “10_000 BC”, the player could start but only unabated and unfold their full splendor. Both were shining through exact contour representation and high sharpness. The fur of woolly mammoth appeared so vividly as you could reach into. The output of the native film frame rate of 24 frames per second (1080 p 24) left moving elements almost smoothly glide along themselves.
Also with difficult footage in 1080i, which is often on concert and documentary films, the deinterlacer impeccable work performed: the fields stored in interlaced are added clean to frames together. In the screen test, the Samsung with slightly more brilliant colors, the Panasonic impressed more sharpness and depth of plastic coaxed a touch high resolution material.
The home theater experience is perfectly rounded off only by the appropriate sound effects. HD audio bitstream output, both candidates knew to convince in this discipline. The Samsung filled the space with clean, very fine-grained elements of sound, without thereby too Abstemious. More direct and energetic but always very dynamic was the Japanese works. The differences using the built-in multichannel decoder were clear. Here, the BD P_3600 produced a slightly warmer sound. Audiophile spoiled much listeners are sure to have access to other tools, sound to your sweetheart in the best possible quality. But in their element – create a solid home theater atmosphere – the Samsung does a good job.
