Excerpt: It is not a small system it arrived in a box the size of a coffin!. Setting up was very easy although for a change I read the manual. Took me about an hour to putting everything together to turning the system on. The stand speakers are around 4` tall and I would recomend that you would need a TV of at least 42` to not make the speakers dwarf your TV.
Excerpt: This system is awesome. I purchased it in Dec 2008 and is truly the best system I have ever seen for picture quality and sound. All you need to do now is spare the cash, go buy it and forget the cinema tickets. The true definition of HD.
Excerpt: Samsung HT-BD2R 7.1ch Tallboy 1100W Blu-ray Home Cinema System - Black Ive had this Home Cinema for just over 6 months and the performance is fantastic. Crystal clear sound with awsome woofer - really is like sitting in the Cinema. Upscaling from standard DVD gives excellent quality. I also have mine connected to SKY HD box with an optical cable and the sound from HD transmissions is just as good as the Blue-Ray discs.One small critism - the sub woofer has its own power...
Excerpt: The Samsung HT-BD2 is the second Blu-ray system is amazing, must buy. Ive had this for a month now and its wicked. Sound and Vision 10 out of 10. Forget Cineworld have this! The HT-BD2s key advantage over the BT100 is one where you get a full 7.1 speaker system in the box for only a slightly higher price than the 3.1-channel Panasonic, making the Samsung seem like better value on paper.
