The Samsung HT-C550 is a low-end home theater system. It shares certain features with another home theater system from Samsung, the HT-C9950W, such as Blu-Ray compatibility, and Crystal Amp Pro technology (which increases the clarity of sound). The HT-C550 falls short compared to the HT-C9950W, as it lacks things such as 3D Blu-Ray support, and only has 5.1 channel audio compared to the HT-C9950W's 7.1. The HT-C550 features wireless speakers, which eliminate the clutter of wires. The speakers also operate at a 5.8GHz wireless transmission, which ensures that the user gets high quality audio without any interference. The HT-C550 also features an iPod/iPhone docking cradle, which lets the user play audio and video from their iPod or iPhone through the home theater system. This also lets the user control the iPod/iPhone with the home theater remote, and charge their device of choice through the cradle.
