Review If you like your visual entertainment to leap out of the TV and in to the living room, the 3D-capable Samsung HT-C6930 home theatre kit may well be for you. And there are several other reasons why this system deserves serious consideration if you're after a state-of-the-art home cinema.

Samsung's HT C6930: design-wise, a notch or two up on the competition

3D is merely the headline act topping an impressive playbill of features that includes 7.1-channel surround sound with wireless rear speakers, built-in internet TV, broad codec compatibility, HDMI switching, and wired and wireless networking.

In order to take advantage of the HT-C6930’s 3D functionality you'll need a 3D TV, of course. While any brand will do, Samsung supplied a UE46C8000, a stunning looking edge-lit LED model that can also convert 2D footage to 3D. Look out for Reg Hardware's upcoming review of this very nice set.

If you do decide to take the 3D plunge and jump in at the deep end with a combined screen and system combo, allow a good few hours to set it up, although the good news is that everything - even the 46in screen - can be unpacked and installed single-handedly.

A couple more essential accessories are also required: some active 3D specs - make sure you get the same brand as the screen, not just the Blu-ray player. Selling for around £60 a pair, the glasses aren't cheap, though Samsung currently has a promotion that gives one free pair per screen.

The HT-C6930 includes the BD-C6900 3D BD player

Finally, you’ll need a Full HD 3D movie or two to watch and luckily - for the time being - you get a free copy of Monsters vs Aliens with every Samsung 3D player and system.
