I'm really new to HTS. I researched a bunch of stuff today. Trying to find a system under $450 that I'm going to be only using in my bedroom. Found these two. I'm kind of looking for all the needless extra features like virtual 7.1 and enhancers, etc. if its possible.

Anybody know which of these is better?

EDIT: Throw the Panasonic SC-BT235 in there too.

For your stated use the Samsung would probably be ok. Included BD players usually mean that the sub is passive and not active (has it's own amplifier) so you won't get the big bass sound but for a bedroom set, that would probably be sufficient.
