The HT-P1200's total RMS power rating is 800 watts, split up into 130 watts for each of the five satellite speakers and 150 watts for the subwoofer. Some manufacturers prefer to devote more power to the front and centre speakers than the rear speakers, but we prefer Samsung's method as it ensures that the rear channel isn't drowned out.
Although this is predominantly an audio system, the unit boasts a progressive scan DVD player supporting all major formats: DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, VCD, SACD, MP3-CD, WMA-CD, DivX, CD-R/RW and DVD-R/RW. As far as sound formats go, the HT-P1200 is capable of decoding Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II, which should cover you for most applications. Further, it'll also function as a JPEG photo viewer, and images can be rotated on the fly as well as displayed in a slideshow. It's even got an integrated FM tuner for those times when your CD collection becomes unbearably monotonous
