In canada I can get either the Polk 6000 for $400 or the Samsung D550 for $350. Its $50 difference, wondering if it's worth it for me to sacrifice the extra inputs on the samsung. Professional reviews seem to give the Polk a better score on sound quality. Couldn't find any direct comparisons by searching.

Samsung is mini-hdmi so I would have to order new cables/adapters from monoprice anyways.

I have to hookup my htpc optical out, tv (panasonic 54G10) and PS3(used for dvds and blu-ray, almost no gaming). Living room (11.5ft x 20ft) with tv against wall centered somewhat from left and right wall. Kitchen entrance right next tv but has a wooden door with big glass window in middle).

I have an HDMI switch already and ordering an Optical Audio switch as well. Appreciate your advice asap as these are sale prices here ending soon.

Not sure if it too late but I will certainly go with Polk on this
Samsung's sound quality is far sub par comparing to Polk

Where did you see Polk 6000 at 400 though?
I only saw Polk 4000 at that price

I'd also like to know where you can get the 6000 for $400 in Canada. Regular price seems to be 650-800.
Wouldn't be surprised if sale price was $400 now and then.
