Samsung shows surround sound 3D home theatre set

WOOT?

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Samsung has shown off what it claims is the "ultimate experience in 3D stereoscopic images and 3D sound".

Well, it would, wouldn't it? But there's an undeniable WOOT quality to the HT-C6930W, described by Samsung as the "world’s first 3D home theatre" rig.

The 1330W HT-C6930W comprises seven speakers - four floor-standing units, a centre-facing vocal drive and two shelf-tops - and a sub-woofer.

Samsung's 3D home theatre rig and friend

They're all fed from Samsung's 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc player, which is part of the package. It has Wi-Fi networking and includes Samsung's new AllShare technology, used to stream content from computers, phones and so on - DLNA, basically.

The player also incorporates Samsung's Internet@TV web-on-your-telly system.

The rig also boasts "automatic sound field optimisation", a technique that automatically calculates the distance from speaker to listener, adjusting the audio accordingly for the best all-round sound, Samsung said.

All the HT-C6930W lacks now: a 3D LED TV and active shutter specs. Still, you can't expect all that too for the £700 Samsung expects the home theatre set to cost. ®
