It seems that the soundbar trend is here to stay as Samsung has announced a multifunctional unit boasting 300 watts of total power. The HT-X810's sleek piano-black bar is sure to complement most flat-panel TVs, and the accompanying wireless 5.8 Ghz subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room. We've seen a wireless sub before from the Boston Acoustics TVee Model Two and were pleased with its performance.
The X810 offers a slo- loading DVD player that upscales up to 1080p via HDMI and can accommodate numerous media formats including DVD-Audio, CDs, DivX, JPEG, MP3, and WMA. In addition, the X810 is Bluetooth-capable and has a USB port for connecting external drives and other players.
No price has been disclosed yet, but the HT-X810 goes on sale in May 2008.
