Samsung HT-C6500 Blu-ray Disc/DVD Home Theater System (HTiB) Review
16 April 2010
Conclusion: A few minor caveats aside, the HT-C6500 is an impressive package and an incredible value. Quite frankly, I defy you to put together a home theater system with Blu-ray playback and media streaming -- not to mention 5.1 channels of surround sound -- of this quality for anywhere near the same price. The first home theater system I built with separate components way back in 1997 cost a heck of a lot more and didn't sound nearly as good.
Pros: Easy setup, Speaker cables included in the box, Internet@TV and all of the streaming media adds incredible value to the system, The speakers are actually pretty good!, Built-in wi-fi, MKV support, Two HDMI inputs, Easy setup, Speaker cables included in the box, Internet@TV and all of the streaming media adds incredible value to the system, The speakers are actually pretty good!, Built-in wi-fi, MKV support, Two HDMI inputs, Easy setup, Speaker cables included in the b...
Cons: The iPod interface is rather featureless, and lacks album artwork, Proprietary speaker connections discourage cable upgrades, The remote is... what's the exact opposite of ergonomic?
Excerpt: The level of style and specification that the Samsung HT-C6500 offers is all the more impressive when you see the price tag. Granted, the satellite speakers feel a little cheap once you grab hold of one, but they're veritable works of art to look at compared with the rather drab satellites on some other systems.

Excerpt: Look up the word generous in the dictionary and you’ll find a little picture of Samsung’s latest Blu-ray home cinema system, the HT-C6500. It’s no exaggeration to say that it’s one of the most feature-packed one-box systems we’ve ever come across, with a spec sheet that reads like an A to Z of the latest home cinema tricks and gimmicks.
Pros: Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, media streaming and a jaw-dropping amount of other features, looks, easy installation, decent level of performance
