Being the only 3d blu-ray home cinema around at the moment, it delivers awesome surround sound and superb picture quality on standard blu-rays, and on 3d blu-ray, its simpley stunning!!!
Also has some nice add on features, like a ipod dock, wireless streaming of nearly every file format, including MKV files, also internet@tv with some nice apps including You Tube and BBC Iplayer.
5 stars from me.
First of all I was made to believe that the apps had lovefilm and iplayer. iPlayer is nowhere to be seen and lovefilm is 'coming soon'. I've updated the firmware, reset the apps, etc.. but still no iPlayer. Which leads me to believe there's some newer model with iPlayer - and the apps are generation specific. Since there's only about 12 apps total in the samsung app store. Dissapointing, but as I'm getting a new samsung TV in a couple of weeks I'm not too upset- hopefully it will work on that.
Secondly the wirelessness of the back speakers are a tad confusing. If you want the speakers layed out like I wanted them, with 2 up front, 2 on the sides and 2 behind, then forget it. The wireless speakers are the side ones - and have to be connected to a wireless box which is about the size of a house brick. This makes no sense at all, since to make this work I'd have to put the wireless box in the middle of the room, under the sofa - and have the power cable trailing over the room.
I think they want you to have it using 'Dolby Prologic IIz' mode - which I have come to understand means that you have 2 speakers at the front, then another 2 at the front - but higher up - then the 2 wireless ones at the back/side. Then the wireless system makes a bit more sense. I found it all a bit confusing until I realised this - so I hope that will help someone out.
The surround left and right speakers are wireless (good) but the surround back left and right speakers ARE NOT!! They have to be connected by cables to the amp/blueray player. That's just stupid, who designed this system?? Why have one set of surround speakers wireless and the other set wired? They should both have been wireless. Amazon are now processing my refund. Looks like I will buy the Yamaha YSP-4100 or YSP-5100 instead.
Avoid if you don't want to run wires around the room, but a great buy if this isn't a problem.
I also have a Samsung TV and have connected the two via a HDMI lead. This does make changing the volume much more easier than my old non-Samsung 5.1 system which wasn't an integrated one.
Setting up the speakers hadn't been a shock as I had been looking at a copy of the User Manual on-line before I purchased it.
I managed to hang the back speakers where the previous ones had been, set up the two 'Tall Boys', place the sub-woofer and central speakers where required. Next was the read surround speakers, which are to produce the extra sound effects from behind you. Initially these were placed on the floor, but I've since hung them a little higher on the wall behind me.
Once it was all hocked up, I plugged the system in, knowing that it would turn on promptly as it was already connected to the TV.
It all started up fine and I was soon setting up the speakers using it's calibration system, which is very accurate and works well.
Initially I had plugged the HDMI lead of the Sky STB through the HT system, using an optical lead to provide the 5.1 sound. This proved to be not suitable as you cannot ask it to take the sound from one source, whilst passing the video feed on through to the TV. I've since routed the Sky STB direct to the TV, with the HT system to it's own port and the optical lead provides very good sound in it's own right. This also allows me to control the sound through the TV on the HT system with the Sky remote and I didn't have to re-program it either.
I'm already familiar with the additional facilities, for example Internet & USB, so I have been quickly able to get these running too. I had been concerned that the HT system might not work with HTFS, since it was excluded in the manual. Happily I can report that my system works fine with it.
Playing music is fine. The different preset systems can be scrolled through quite easily.
There are a couple of apps which I have installed on the TV, but which are not available on the HT system. I'll be contacting Samsung over this as one of them I would prefer to use on the HT system, not the TV (vTuner: Internet Radio). I am sure that it would be nice to be able to access others too which are available on the TV, but not the HT system as not everyone will have a Samsung TV with the Internet.
Unlike the TV, if you play a movie from an external drive, it doesn't note at which point you were last watching. This can be a nuisance for long movies, or if you like to watch a recorded TV series.
Another aspect which I need to chase is Samsung's own DLNA software. This allows you to stream content from your Windows XP or Windows Vista computer. Windows 7 has it's own version installed.
I have not been impressed with this from the start. I have a large library and cannot access it all from the TV. I can access a Windows 7 computer from the HT system, but I can't access my Windows XP based computer. This is not the case with the TV, which allows me to access both. Something else I need to chase through.
Blu-rays & DVDs look & sound good. It seems to clean up DVDs nicely for the HD display on the TV.
In order to be able to get the sound from the TV, I have had to purchase an optical 3-way switcher. This works well, but it would have been nice it there were more than one optical input into the HT system. The TV will pass the sound from the Sky STB, but this is not full 5.1 sound. You need to use an optical lead directly from the Sky STB to achieve 5.1 surround sound.
Having spoken a lot about 5.1 inputs on a 7.1 system, may be you think that the 2 additional speakers are not used. Happily they are well used. If you watch a film such as 'Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit' you'll soon hear the spark into a noisy life.
The clarity of the sound is very good. I tend to leave it in the Dolby IIz mode, without any other enhancement for TV & Films. It is very crisp and clear and will be adding to my enjoyment of many hours of fun.
I actually wanted the HT-C6730 which is identical except that it is limited to 2D Blu-Ray only. It seems that this is being withdrawn in favour of the newer HT-C6750W which not only plays 3D Blu-Rays, but can upgrade 2D discs to 3D output.
The TV I have is the Samsung LE40C650 which is only a 2D TV, so I cannot check out the 3D picture output. The HT system, speakers and TV all share the same shiny black covers and look very nice together. This look does attract and show the dust though, but the micro-fibre cloths supplied do clean them easily.
It's a little difficult to have the volume on full all the time. I think this would damage my ears ;) . The volume goes from 0 to 50. Typically it is set in the high teens to mid-20s.
The display shows the type on input for sound when you are watching the TV. It also shows the time into a sound, movie or streaming video from YouTube or BBC iPlayer. Unfortunately I can't seem to find how to get it to display the current time. I did manage to turn off the illuminations on the top of it which reminded me that it was a 3D Blu-Ray system. This was hidden in the settings for the system and distracted my viewing pleasure.
Overall I am very happy with this system and would recommend it if this is what you are looking for.
