Samsung Surround sound

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good

"Fast and polite service. Easy to use the set up was pretty simple. The sound is crystal clear and the 1000w speakers would make me very unpopular. The base is not too over bearing. "

Good solid system!

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good

Cons: None

"Very quick to setup. However, it was a little fiddly ensuring all the wires were connected properly into the back of the speakers. It took me ages to get them to work as one wire wasn’t quite connecting properly. After some investigation and persistence the system finally worked. I’ve never had a system on my tv before, so this was my little treat. I’m so impressed and immediately noticed a huge difference in the sound. Although a cheapish system it is amazing and suits us down to the ground! Would definitely recommend this to someone new to a cinema system and wants a boost to their standard tv!"

Decent system

Pros: Ease to use, Value for money

"This system is generally good. Speakers are powerful enough and the subwoofer gives excellent bass. Setup is very easy as all speaker wires are colour coded and plug in fairly easy to the player. Wires are long and I had ample left over after fitting about 20 foot from my TV.

There are different settings and I watched he football on ‘game’ setting which was good. I watched a film on ‘cinema’ setting and got a decent sound. It plugs into the ARC HDMI port and basically runs itself without issue. I have a 6 series Samsung TV so it compliments it well.

For the money this is fairly decent. The only nag is that you have to fiddle with the speaker wires to get them to work in the speaker. It is a bit of a faff but once sorted it works well.

Would recommend this as a decent system for the price."

Classy looking home cinema system.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good

"Stylish looking unit although the subwoofer is much larger than my last - make sure you've got room for it. Sound is good. Not used the internet features. Easy to set up and cables are a good length - I didn't need to extend them unlike with my last home cinema system."

Fantastic entry level home cinema experience

Pros: Bass, Ease to use, Value for money

Cons: Detail of sound, Size

"The system comes packed into one small box, out of which comes 5 separate glossy-black speakers and one good-sized subwoofer. It is very easy to set-up with clearly marked speaker wires/connectors and looks stylish in any room. Besides the subwoofer the speakers are quite small, which can be ideal for anyone wanting a discreet system or anyone strapped for space. The subwoofer itself can be hidden away anywhere in the room so it's size is not an issue. However, if you are placing the speakers on the floor or have plenty of space next to your TV you may want to consider a system with tower speakers or purchase some separate stands to elevate them and give them some presence in the room.

Small but mighty. Despite the speakers size they do not disappoint. The subwoofer kicks out deep, punchy bass which compliments any film and sports. Helicopter noises and large explosions sound particularly dramatic and exciting through this system. The speakers deliver clear and crisp mids and highs which can become a little distorted at higher volumes, however I can't think of a time you would need the speakers at that high a volume for it to become a problem.

The system does come with a multitude of features including smart-apps, screen mirroring, wifi and bluetooth. The bluetooth is ideal for connecting your phone up to play music. The bass can overpower the music on certain equalisers and does appear a tad subdued for my tastes on others so setting a custom EQ in the settings menu is recommended. Music does highlight the struggles of the system more so than cinema and you may pick up on the bass being a little distorted and less distinct as it struggles to portray the intricacies of some songs. Again the main speakers may lack some of the clarity of higher-end speakers, particularly at high volume. However with the right EQ set, it can produce a good quality output for your music without breaking the bank.

In conclusion this is an excellent entry-level system for those wanting to add a little (a lot, really) more oomph to their TV viewing. It performs way beyond it's discreet size and makes for a really enjoyable film experience with particularly dramatic bass. It can act as a great system to play music but can struggle at higher volumes. I highly recommend it for anyone other than a true audiophile, but I don't think you will find anything better in it's price range.
