Samsung HT-BD8200 Sound Bar with Blu-ray & Netflix


The Samsung HT-BD8200 is a home theater sound bar equipped with a Blu-ray player and wireless subwoofer. This might be the best match I've seen for flat panel TVs in a long time. It's impressive

The HT-BD8200 will be available the first half of 2009 and pricing has yet to be determined. Please visit for more information.

Samsung HT-BD8200 2.1-Channel Blu-ray Home Theater System (HTiB)Review


It's the new math: Samsung adds a Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player to their latest soundbar, while subtracting the need for ethernet and subwoofer cables.

It's a Blu-ray player, and a speaker system, and a wireless streaming media device. In fact, there's little the Samsung HT-BD8200 can't do. But I believe that its substantial price tag reflects the esthetics, the convenience and the underlying...

Samsung HT-BD8200 review


This 2.1 soundbar offers Blu-ray playback at an affordable price

Subwoofer surprisingly effective ; Picture quality ; Affordable

Mediocre music reproduction ; Photo playback never better than upscaled SD

A great soundbar for the money and the added Blu-ray player rounds off a very impressive package

Samsung HT-BD8200 soundbar speakers - Pocket-lint


The Samsung HT-BD8200 offers a 2.1 home theatre experience, bringing with it the benefits of a Blu-ray drive and the convenience of a wireless subwoofer.

Great design, great picture quality, sounds great

Lacks connectivity, networking a little hit and miss, bass can be brutal at times

The Samsung HT-BD8200 is a great single-box solution for those who want to boost their audio performance and get a Blu-ray player in the mix. The additional USB connectivity is nice, so long as your preferred formats are supported, but the networked...

Don't want to fill your living room with miles of cables and hundreds of speakers to get decent cinema sound? Samsung has the answer

Clever and capable. For many, the HT-BD8200 is the ideal home cinema solution – and it comes at a tempting price

Samsung HT-BD8200


The Samsung HT-BD8200 not only offers a likeable and easy to set-up home cinema system, it also offers audio and video of a higher standard than the price lets on.

Great sound and vision ; Easy to use ; Set-up is a no-brainer ; Wireless ; Designed for wall-mounting ; YouTube access

iPod integration isn't the best ; Stand is fairly flimsy

Samsung updated the unit's firmware during our testing period adding something that's been very popular on other units: YouTube access. Unfortunately, as the update occurred at the the eleventh hour we were unable to get the feature to work, but trust...

Samsung HT-BD8200


If you don't want to litter your loungeroom with speakers and just want a good quality Blu-ray player and great sound, this is the device for you.

Excellent audio quality, Great image quality on the Blu-ray player, BDLive, Media Streaming, iPod dock

Not as loud as a dedicated 5.1 set up, Some surround elements get lost now and then
