Great sound, needs better design

Adequate to good sound. Plays a good range of disc formats. Good value.

Good Home theater for the price, a few downsides

 

Overall, I am happy with this system. For the price, the system is definitely a good value. As an earlier review stated, many of these all-in-one systems are glorified shelf-systems with a DVD player. However, the ability to play DIVX, MP3, CD-R/CD-RW ...

Product Specifications

Samsung has raised the convergence bar again with a host of new five-disc DVD-receiver systems, some of which are the world's first to feature a USB Plug and Play port so users can listen to music from their MP3/WMA devices. Samsung's 5-disc HTiB all incorporate an integrated DVD player/receiver, a full set of high-quality surround sound speakers and a superb sub-woofer to transform any living room into a fully functioning digital entertainment center. Audiophiles will appreciate the wide center channel speaker that enhances dialog prominence during movies so words don't compete against background sound effects and music.
