Samsung HT-E5530

 

This surround sound system is feature-packed but flawed

Generous feature list, Stylish gloss black speakers, Slick, attractive operating system

Hard, compressed sound, Tower speaker build quality, Smart Hub needs more catch-up TV

Samsung HT-E5530 review

 

Bells and whistles tend to come as standard with Samsung and the E5530 has a suitably impressive spec

It's not the most subtle, but there's no arguing with the Samsung's scale and power

Samsung HT-E5530 review

 

Plenty of bang for your buck, and a big, boisterous sound

Loads of features ; clean interface ; big, exciting sound ; vivid, detailed pictures

Other systems have a better surround sound balance ; no iPlayer (yet)

Plenty of bang for your buck, and a fine choice for a big, boisterous sound

Samsung HT-E5530 3D Blu-ray Player & 5.1 Home Cinema System Review

 

The HT-E5530 scores big marks in the looks department, sporting a glossy piano black finish that we would normally expect to see on a Panasonic product. We actually prefer this look to the more avant garde approach on some Samsung products and it...

Very good sound Built-in 3D Blu-ray player Excellent video performance Smart features Built-in WiFi Attractive design Smartphone remote Built-in Bluetooth Price

Build quality could be better No headphone socket 2:2 cadence detection is ineffective Slight alterations to video signal with all Picture Modes

The HT-E5530 was also no slouch in the music department, no doubt due to the effective front speakers and well integrated bass. In stereo we found the localisation of instruments and voices to be very precise and the clarity was excellent, with plenty...

Very good technical specification and price.

Noisy disc drive. Very slow interface and net connectivity. Poor configuration control i.e. removing 'junk' from home screen.

Samsung HT-E5530

 

Sound is excellent, still makes me jump with some great earthy bass in the small speakers around the back. Remote control is really nice, easy to use and change settings etc. Screen menu is simple.

Slightly awkward trying to put cables in the back at time and some times if you knock the hi fi system and you have sky cable plugged in the screen goes black for a second before coming back on.
