Samsung HT-AS730ST
REVIEW

Samsung HT-AS730ST

The Samsung HT-AS730's unimpressive sound quality, finicky HDMI ports, unreadable display, and tedious input system will have you looking elsewhere for a Blu-ray-ready home theater package.

Onkyo HT-S9100THX
REVIEW

Onkyo HT-S9100THX

The Onkyo HT-S91000THX breaks the HTIB mold, offering four HDMI inputs, full-size speakers, and the best sound we've heard to date from an all-in-one system.

REVIEW

Polk Audio SurroundBar 360

The Polk Audio SurroundBar 360 DVD Theater delivers excellent sound from a single speaker bar, with the lack of built-in Blu-ray being the real sticking point.

REVIEW

Samsung HT-X810T

While we've heard better virtual surround sound, the Samsung HT-X810T's easy setup and dearth of wires will appeal to those searching for simplicity and a minimalist aesthetic.

Yamaha YSP-3000
REVIEW

Yamaha YSP-3000 ( silver)

If you can look past its limited video capabilities, the Yamaha YSP-3000 is an otherwise recommendable single-speaker solution for home theater buyers who don't want a traditional 5.1 channel surround system.

Yamaha YSP-4000
REVIEW

Yamaha YSP-4000 ( black)

The addition of enhanced video connectivity options cements Yamaha's already excellent Digital Sound Projector technology as the go-to choice for single-speaker surround sound.

REVIEW

Samsung HT-X70

The Samsung HT-X70 is stylish and has a great feature set for the price, but it sounds better on movies than with music.

REVIEW

Sirius SR-H550

Sirius's first dedicated home satellite radio, the Sirius SR-H550, looks and feels more substantial than those teensy plug-and-play tuners.

REVIEW

Bose 3-2-1 GS Series II ( silver)

The Bose 3-2-1 Series II DVD system does a surprisingly good surround-sound imitation with just two satellites, but it's overpriced.
