The Good It's got the lot — Wi-Fi, Smart Hub, AllShare, Anynet+. Superb video playback on all formats. 3D sound actually works.

The Bad Poor subwoofer. Bright-sounding super tweeters. Major dust magnet.

The Bottom Line Gone are the days when home theatre systems simply delivered 5.1 channels of sound; this Samsung system does much, much more than that.

Design and features

This system's feature list is about as long as it gets with current home theatre gear, so we'll concentrate on the main ones. The HT-D6750W is essentially an all-in-one BD system, capable of playing back 3D Blu-ray software as well as incorporating Samsung's latest 3D sound signal processing and loudspeaker technology. It comprises the BD head unit, two pairs of column speakers, a small centre channel speaker and a passive subwoofer. The rear speakers are driven wirelessly with an accompanying transmitter/receiver, and the main front columns feature "vertical surround", which is an additional driver that can be angled upwards, reflecting sound off the ceiling and providing the so-called "3D sound" modus operandi.

The slim head unit incorporates all sorts of technological goodies, including built-in Wi-Fi, 2D-to-3D conversion, the Smart Hub internet portal, 2GB of local storage, twin HDMI outputs — and on and on goes the list. Its networking ability is equally extensive, with AllShare DLNA support, and when teamed up with a display such as those in Samsung's latest-generation smart TVs (we used the rather excellent Series 7 55-inch 3D LED), you've got just about every networking base and media stream covered.

Aesthetically, it's all slimline and high-gloss black, which looks great until the dust starts settling on the fingerprints. Which is as soon as everything's switched on. The head unit's LED display doubles as the touch controls for the basic disc commands, and discs slide smoothly in and out of a hidden slot.

The onscreen menus are simple, colourful and easy to navigate, albeit a bit pedestrian when compared to some. First up, the system auto-calibrates itself, which takes the hassle out of that chore, and then you're ready for some wireless 3D action.
