    This 3D Blu-ray all-in-one system from Samsung works wonders with high frequencies, but it should drop the '7.1' tag

    The upmarket BDS800 is a well-turned out, all-in-one home cinema system, but is it more style icon than trendsetter?

    The home-cinema-in-a-bar category is a relatively new phenomenon that comes in a wide variety of flavours, from Yamaha’s sophisticated multi-driver Sound Projectors to more simplistic affairs, such as this variation from Samsung.

    Samsung HT-BD2 review

    8  

    Unboxing Samsung’s HT-BD2 is much like making love to an Eskimo; there’s an awful lot of unwrapping to be done before you get to the tasty bits. It’s 7.1, you see, equating to eight speakers in total, with one being a meaty subwoofer. Plus, the main unit is a combination Blu-ray player and receiver. And its massive! You’ll certainly need to reserve some considerable real estate under your TV, round the back of your sofa and, er, everywhere else really.

    If you own one of Pioneer’s gorgeous Kuro plasma TVs and need a home cinema system to match, this is just the ticket. It comprises a DVD/HDD recorder, a 400W subwoofer receiver, four compact satellite speakers and a display unit that accepts commands from the remote control, enabling you to hide the other components out of sight.

    It’s not that often a speaker brand comes back from the dead. But that’s just what has happened with MK Sound. The company logo may well be familiar to regular readers, as it recalls the once-famous Miller & Kreisel speaker brand.

    Predictably, it was Sony that launched the first all-in-one cinema system in the UK in the early days of DVD, and quickly realised that it was shifting more DVD systems than stand-alone players and making much healthier margins.
