Samsung HT-E6750W


Our Score:


Setting up the HT-E6750W is an unavoidably long-winded procedure, given the amount of components in the box. The three-part front and surround tower speakers require lots of screwing, while the need to locate the wireless receiver near a power socket and hide the wires could also be an issue.

But a few things ease the process, such as the colour coded speaker wires/plugs and the automatic calibration system, which sets the sonic parameters for you using the supplied microphone – great news for home cinema newcomers.

The rest of the setup procedure – configuring Wi-Fi and all the related network features, setting up the speakers, selecting inputs and making key tweaks to Blu-ray playback – are all a complete doddle thanks to the clear onscreen menus and text.


Once installed, day-to-day navigation is easy. The HT-E6750W shares the same dazzlingly crisp and colourful menu design and architecture as the BD-E8500, which is a good thing. However the use of a single core processor as opposed to the dual core used in the BD-E8500 makes it more sluggish – particularly the web browser, which is slow almost to the point of being unusable. Even using a mouse doesn’t help.


The remote uses roughly the same design as the BD-E8500, apart from a few extra buttons. It boasts perfect placement of the menu and playback controls, excellent labelling and a generally comfortable and ergonomic shape. We also like the sleek brushed black styling, which brings a bit of panache to the coffee table.

The system boots up incredibly quickly and loads discs quickly. It took 41 seconds to start playing the Java-heavy menus of Terminator Salvation, while a less tricky disc like Thor takes 25 seconds, which is excellent.

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.
