Samsung HT-E6500W


A Smart and stylish 5.1-channel Blu-ray system with valve amp technology

Comprehensive feature range, Solid 2D and 3D Blu-ray pictures, Slick, eye-catching GUI

Speaker build quality, Overly sharp sound at louder volumes, Slow web browser

Samsung HT-E6500 review


5.1 system with 3D Blu-ray and streaming galore

HDMI switching ; Bluetooth music from smartphones ; Punchy movie soundtracks ; Simple set-up & calibration ; Smart Hub apps via Wi-Fi

Questionable build quality ; Dated gloss black looks ; Poorly designed remote control ; Subwoofer slow to act

It may play nicely with 3D Blu-ray discs, and even convert 2D sources to 3D, but Samsung's HT-E6500 home cinema 'in a box' is just as much about music as it is movies.

Samsung HT-E6500 review


Samsung's latest 5.1 home cinema package might look sleek and modern from the front, but it's hiding something decidedly more retro – it's fitted with vacuum tubes, designed to improve your audio experience by producing a warmer sound than other...

A well rounded 5.1 Blu-ray kit that’s a little expensive, but packed with great features
