yup

Accepts audio over hdmi.

Initial thought was Ugh bet this is c**p but reviews are quite good and considering price a steal for anyone wishing to get started with a budget 5.1 nice find

If someone already has speakers but just needs a unit then this is exactly what they need. It's a hell of a bit of kit for the money.

wish they would sell these with speakers as bundle kits

I own this set, was posted on here recently via Novatech I think for about £170 (misprice I think) but otherwise Play are cheapest. Its a good unit with 4 HDMI out. I'm running a PS3, 360, SKY+ HD & an AC Ryan through it

looks good , sold some ps3`s for spares so they paid for it ;-)
just what i been looking for.
Thanks OP

shanecr

yup :)Accepts audio over hdmi.



Cool !
Does this mean that I can play music cd's using my dvd player (as a cd player) with a single hdmi cable connecting the dvd player to the Samsung?

q for you ODB, your amp, does it have spring clips for the speakers? My amp arrives tuesday and i think this one has screw terminals.

Novatech were selling these with full speaker kit for just £40 more a few days ago before they sold out. Just to make you all aware before you buy.

Great price for a starter system or for someone who needs to upgrade to get the Hdmi connections.

Bought this from Novotech when they had the offer on last wek for £149 with the speakers.
Set it all up and played my Ipod through it fine. Turned it on the next day & it just keeps coming up with an error message "PROTECTION" and then shuts down. Its now waiting to be picked up to go back to Novatech.....

great input choice...........looks very good to me....this could be a purchase me thinks...
Thanks

Check your cables aren't shorting out.

I purchased Samsung HTZ310R HTK surround sound kit via this deal

It seems like the optical connection at the back of the amplifier has stopped working as there is no light on the other side of the optical lead.

I want to buy this as it seems great for the price, I just want to know if the speakers I got with my system will work with this amplifier. They are the clip type connection?

Does anyone know if this will function well with the Toshiba Regza link in the same way that an Onkyo would? I don't want to have to use an extra controller. Cheers.

what does that mean?

how does this compare to the Yamaha RX-V367 would i be better to pay the extra for the yamaha ?

Anyone using a harmony remote with this without any problems?

is this (and why) better than just getting a bundle? I was looking at the Samsung c555 - with tallboy speakers. Presumably there are disadvantages to not having a dedicated amp (as in the c555)?

Can anyone advise?

a dedicated amp will give you a lot more options on interfacing\connectivity. out of the box may only give you the option of plugging in one or two more devices to utilise the speakers.

for instance, im running blu-ray, sky, tuner, cd, turntable and ps3 all through my dedicated amp, not sure if an out of the box system would be able to manage all those inputs.

in short, if you are just buying something to watch your dvd's with then go out of the box. other than that, go av reciever

Can a Wii run through this?

@ Shanecr the 560 that comes with the speakers has spring clips for the speaker cables. Mine is sitting in the box in my room ... just waiting for new carpet to be laid, then I can build new cabinet and get this baby installed!

Will a Wii work with this?
