They'll be compatible with all high-definition audio formats and will go by the model numbers HT-AS730 and HT-AS930. We'll bring you a full run down of specifications and pricing as soon as they become available.

Two, DVD-based home cinema systems are also on the way: the HT-Z320 and the HT-Z222. The 'Z320 is a 1000W, 5.1 system, available with either satellite or tall-boy speakers. The 'Z222 is a 850W system available in either a 2.1 satellite, 2.1 tall-boy or 5.1 tall-boy configuration.

Blu-ray home cinema in a box
Given Samsung's commitment to Blu-ray, it's no surprise that there'll be a new Blu-ray home cinema system, the HT-BD7200, available as either a 2.1 satellite, 5.1 satellite or 5.1 tall-boy set-up. Each one will come with its own i-Pod dock.

Samsung will also be launching a soundbar without DVD, the SB1, and a second model with a wireless subwoofer known as the WS1.

Perhaps more intriguingly, we've also been given some more information on Samsung's HT-BD8200 Blu-ray-playing soundbar. It'll hit the shops in July and should cost £699.

We've also been told to expect two new HDD/DVD recorder models with 160GB and 320GB hard drives.
