Gone are the days when home theatre systems simply delivered 5.1 channels of sound; this Samsung system does much, much more than that.
Design and features
This system's feature list is about as long as it gets with current home theatre gear, so we'll concentrate on the main ones. The HT-D6750W is essentially an all-in-one BD system, capable of playing back 3D Blu-ray software as well as incorporating Samsung's latest 3D sound signal processing and loudspeaker technology. It comprises the BD head unit, two pairs of column speakers, a small centre channel speaker and a passive subwoofer. The rear speakers are driven wirelessly with an accompanying transmitter/receiver, and the main front columns feature "vertical surround", which is an additional driver that can be angled upwards, reflecting sound off the ceiling and providing the so-called "3D sound" modus operandi...
By far, this system's biggest appeal is its vast array of networking and streaming features. Gone are the days when home theatre systems simply delivered 5.1 channels of sound; this Samsung system does much, much more than that. Picture quality is superb, the 3D sound works, but a weak subwoofer and fizzy treble let it down, sonically speaking.
