Excerpt: Say ‘all-in-one system’ to most AV enthusiasts and they’ll recoil in horror. But the HT-C9950W is no ordinary one-box affair, it’s what happens when Samsung lets its imagination run wild, blissfully free from price constraints. It’s a 7.1-channel, 3D-capable home cinema system that boasts an impossibly generous feature list and, most significantly, an inventive new design.
Excerpt: As a high-end home cinema system, the Samsung HT-C9950W is a brushed-aluminium feast for the senses. Subwoofer apart, every major component is designed for either wall-mounting or use atop elegant, cable-concealing pedestal stands, with the central disc-playing hub as the system's focal point.
Pros: Potent, full sound, comprehensive specification, desirable styling
Cons: Sound lacks polish, some motion issues with 2D and 3D, sky-high price
