Samsung HT D5500 review

 

Samsung's HT-D5000 all-in-one system is all about style. From the slot-loading disc tray, pulsing white activity LED and touch-sensitive buttons to the satellite speakers finished in glossy black plastic and brushed metal, there's very little not to...

Great styling, excellent audio and plenty of extra features – there are few all-in-one systems that do it better

Great styling, excellent audio and plenty of extra features – there are few all-in-one systems that do it better

The main unit also has plenty of other ports, including two HDMI inputs, a component out and optical S/P-DIF input, as well as an FM radio antenna, Ethernet port, single USB port and a proprietary iPod connector for the included dock. All the HDMI...

The product works well, but after I bought surround sound a found it cheaper elsewhere.

Samsung HT-D5500

 

Nice crisp sound with good bass. Up-scales DVD to near HD crisp, clear picture.

Fault developed after 18 days, TV can't connect to Anynet+ so can't pass sound through system and system will not play DVD.

Samsung HT-D5500

 

The connecting of the speaker cables to the main unit are fool proof, also the connections to the TV and sky box.

Keyhole fitting for the hanging of the speaker is not good, it does mean (in my case) that I need new speaker stands.
