Anybody know anything about Samsung Home Cinema Systems? Which one?

Found 9th Oct 2008
Apologies in advance I am not a techy person and havent the foggiest when it comes to these things. Am after a Samsung Home Cinema system as my dvd has packed up got a 42"plasma samsung. Wont be playing movies/music really loud and dont want to have loads of speakers all over my living room needs to be reasonable quality dvd player with usb. The company who sold me my dvd which has packed up have offered me a "deal" a samsung HT-x30 for £125 or a HT-x200 for £150 for my inconvenience.

Opinions please (I liked the deal for HT-tz212 recently posted)

do you want 2.1 or 5.1?


Personally I would want 5.1 which is the HT-x30

whereas the HT-x200 is 2.1

basics are 2.1 is 2 speakers, 1 sub....5.1 is 5 speakers 1 sub...

so 2.1 would go in front of you whereas 5.1 would go all around you...front sides and back

You'd get better advice off the avforums.

have to agree there...worth looking at the reviews and probs...

also be aware Sammys are plagued with lip syncing issues

it does look nicer admittedly but if you have the room I would go for a 5.1 system...sounds much nicer...but I dont know if I'd go for the one offered....

the one I have looks like this:

but I wanted 800w with Tallboy speakers, you may not want tallboys and would want satellite speakers...its all about personal choice but 5.1 is better as its surround sound is bette than pseudo surround sound


HOWEVER


If they are willing to offer money off those as way of compo, get them to do it on other models....I'd also try and push for more off...milk it love!

Please take a look at my thread. I have a near new Samsung dvd surround sound set up for sale

I bought a Samsung surround sound to replace a Cambridge 5.1 and some Gale speakers, it was beyond awful, shoddy build quality, dire sound, ended up sending it back and getting an Onkyo amp with 5.1 Tannoys later upgraded to 7.1, you're probably better off with something like a Pioneer 5.1 set.
But yes, ask on the avforums.
