Summary: I have had this system for about 5 months. I agree with other reviewers, it was easy to set up, it looks GREAT, I love the quality of the DVD pictures (or could that be my Samsung Touch of Color 42" TV which I love?) however there are some problems with the design and functioning. First of all, because the DVD inserts vertically on the top of the unit, I could not center it on a shelf so it looked nice as it hit the next shelf above.
Excerpt: Thats what Samsung claim, the effect of surround sound from a 2.1 setup. I'm not sure i'd agree, for me it just seems a bit echo-y! However this system still has a lot going for it as you can turn off the "virtual surround" option and just have fantastic sound which fills the room, but maybe doesn't give you complete surround sound (it also doesn't have your house trailing with cables everywhere). I got this system to compliment my Series 5 40" 1080p HD Samsung TV.
Pros: Looks sexy, price, sound quality, features
Cons: Not quite as good as proper surround sound .
Excerpt: Sehr gutes Preis - Leisungsverhältnis, gutes Klangbild und sauberer Bass, macht auch opisch echt was her! Musik in Konzertlautstärke ist das reinste Vergnügen! Lautsprecher sind belastbar und auch sehr gut verarbeitet! Auch die mögliche Wandmontage finde ich toll. Leider verfügt der Radio über kein RDS, auch die Uhr sucht man vergebens!
Pros: Sehr gutes Klangbild, solide Verarbeitung, sehr gutes Preis - Leistungsverhältnis
