Can this play normal DVDs?

I know this says that it plays Blu-ray discs, but does it also play the normal DVD discs?

Yes, it will play normal DVD's. It just doesn't have the ability to play the obsolete HD-DVD's that Sony came out with, but was blown away by Blue-Ray.

Unfortunately, if you are requesting information on a feature called "crystal clear clarity", the HWD7000ZA will not have this feature built-in. If you are referring to the actual sound quality, although I can tell you that the HWD7000ZA will offer stunning sound reproduction, experiencing this model for yourself by visiting your local Best Buy store would be your next best course of action.

Question

could one or more of the amplified outputs function the same as a pre-amp so that I can use the wiring that was built into my walls to other rooms?

And if so, are there downsides to further amplifying one of these outputs?

Yes, it can. This has 10 speaker connections with Bi-Amp mode for multiple zones, but that setup does take speakers away for the THX Surround sound setup.

I’m sorry, but at this time, I do not currently have an answer to this inquiry about pre-amplification on the HWD7000's ports.
Please contact Samsung Service directly by navigating to the Samsung webpage for a live solution to your question.

Yes the microphone plugs in and similar to the Yamaha, etc units it measures the sound in the room and adjusts the speaker levels. It seemed to help my setup sound much better but mileage may vary. It only takes about 5 minutes to do the adjustment.

ASC stands for Auto Sound Calibration, and it measures the volumes for adjusting the volume in the speakers.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.

It only has FM radio. However in the apps section it has an app that gets internet radio streamed over the internet, so that is how I listen to AM if I want :)
