Samsung HT-E6750W

Summary

Our Score:

9

The HT-E6750W shares many of the features found on the BD-E8500 Smart PVR, so we’ll keep details brief – for a more in-depth look check out our review of the BD-E8500.

First up is the Smart Hub internet portal, which comes with a wide range of apps (including BBC iPlayer), new ‘signature services’ like Family Story, Fitness and Kids, plus a built-in web browser, Your Video and Search. It’s a terrific feature that could possibly only be improved by more catch-up TV services.

There’s built-in Wi-Fi, alongside handy new features like Soft AP, which allows devices to use the HT-E6750W as a Wi-Fi access point, and AllShare Play, which consolidates all content (including files on your home network) into one place.

In terms of audio technology, it’s a different animal to its predecessor. For this model, Samsung has used a combination of vacuum tube technology and digital amplification in a bid to deliver a warmer sound, making this the world’s first system to do so. After being passed through a high-quality DAC, the signal goes to the vacuum tube pre-amplifier and then to a Class D amp to achieve the required efficiency while keeping the tonal characteristics of the tube. It pumps out a claimed power of 1,330W.

Tilting driver

Samsung has also upgraded to glass fibre speaker cones, the extra rigidity of which brings better heat and vibration resistance. Inside the subwoofer, a 10in passive radiator is added to the main driver to improve bass response.

Elsewhere you’ll find a bevy of sound modes, including 3D sound, MP3 Enhancer, Power Bass and Samsung’s barmy SFE settings like ‘Symphony Hall in Boston’. Naturally it decodes Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio soundtracks too.

Then of course there’s the HT-E6750W’s comprehensive multimedia support from USB devices and over DLNA, with CD ripping to USB as an added bonus. Built-in Bluetooth allows you to stream music to the system without hassle, while on the visual side the HT-E6750W offers 3D Blu-ray support with 2D-to-3D conversion.

Completing the picture are not just an FM tuner but, download the vTuner app and, you can stream thousands of internet radio stations.

A grand for a home theatre system like this is utterly insane, especially considering the rather poor connectivity and typical consumer-grade build quality. Be genuinely interested to see how it compares to the Onkyo home theatre kits that go for £300 - perhaps TR can do a review of one?

Does this thing actually have PVR functions? The first sentence of page two mentions it is similar to the BD8500 PVR, but I do not see any more reference to the PVR elsewhere on the web, and can't see a TV socket on the back panel, only the FM.

So it is possible to connect with a 55F6510 Samsung TV? I mean the sound signal to came from TV into the System?

It seems like you can connect the TV sound to the system with either an Optical Digital cable or Aux. Shouldn't be a problem.

This is more unnecessarily complicated piece of equiptment I've ever used. It has a mind all of its own. The remote is a waste of time as you can't read the display from more than an arms length away so it might as well have dials. And now, after two years of putting up with all its tantrums the DVD/CD player refuses to engage. I don't whether to be angry or rejoice. All I know is that I'm over this temperamental piece of crap and I wont be replacing it with anything that has the Samsung name on it.
