Can anyone attest to the psychoacoustic ability of the ht-ws1? I had settled on getting the ht-ct500, but I have a 55" samsung LED and getting a clean, simple, matching soundbar really appeals to me. I was planning on just running the tv output to the ct500, so the fact that the samsung is designed to be used that way, and not to mention cheaper, makes it attractive. I'm trying to get my home theater setup as clean and elegant as possible.
My only concern is that I want the virtual surround to actually work. The room I'll be putting it in is ideal, 19'x13' rectangle, hardwood floor, 8' celing, single couch. I'm willing to sacrifice some sound quality for asthetics, but not if the virtual surround doesn't work.
