Samsung HT-H5500

 

A cheap and cheerful 5.1 home cinema system

Attractive, compact design ; Impressive features for the money ; Slick operating system

Sounds coarse at high volumes ; Lacks detail and bass agility ; Limited catch-up TV

It’s rough round the edges sonically, but with a busy feature list, snazzy design and a slick operating system the HT-H5500 could be worth a punt for £250.

Samsung HT-H5500 review

 

Samsung's entry-level 5.1 system throws in a set of super-compact speakers, a Blu-ray receiver and a subwoofer. It'll set you back around £250, which is barely more than a standalone soundbar.

Lively sound; compact design; generous features for the money; hassle-free operation

No ITV Player, 4OD or Demand 5; hard tone; lacks composure at high volumes; subwoofer needs more agility

Decent home theater in a box

 

This system is good for smaller living rooms, it sets up pretty easily, the sound is good for the price. If you aren't an audiophile this will get the job done. The smart features allow you to connect to Hulu, Netflix, the internet, YouTube, etc. is...
