The HT-BD1250 has a receiver built into the Blu-Ray in the same headunit. So the player and the amp are a single unit. So when you play surround sound Blu-Rays and DVDs, you'll be able to enjoy the surround sound without a difficult configuration.
No such thing as rookie questions. We were all new to this at one point.
Here's some more information, and if you have questions, just let me know.
Hi I'm going to go Blu Ray and Surround to go with my LN52B750. I really like to stay with a brand for compatability etc. I really like the reviews of the BD1250 system. Now for my question, revealing my complete newness to this Home Theatre thing. If I buy the system, does the Blu Ray player and amplifier section come as one unit or do I need an amp/receiver to go along with the package? Sorry for my rookie question but hey, I need to know lol. Thanks guys......
