Here is a secret if you are really one of those serious types who will settle for nothing but the best. When you look at the stock number on a Samsung DLP, look for that number 88. When you look at the number, S5688W, the 56 shows you the screen size, and the 88 tells you that everything Samsung knows how to do to make a DLP better is included in this model. The list is long. The Cinema Smooth light engine, the Digital Natural image engine (DNle), and Next Generation DLP chips from Texas Instruments are examples. Color is enhanced with a 10 bit processing system. The DLP, or Digital Light Processing, uses thousands of tiny mirrors reflecting light through a color wheel to fire the pixels. Samsung features an improved five segment color wheel that is a bit larger than standard and spins at 14,400 rpm. The resolution is 1080p progressive scan. What that all means is that the S5688W will show you just how far we have come in High Definition television. The picture and color on this unit is about as good as it gets.
Samsung does not skimp on the accessories either. The speakers are their best 10 watt SR5 TruSurround XT speakers. There are two of them and they are hidden in the bezel style designed cabinet. There is a complete input/output array featuring two HDMI inputs that allow one cable hookup to most Home Theater components. It is also compatible with your PC with an input that converts the unit into a large WUXGA computer monitor. The 88 series also has an optional stand designed for a DLP. The TR50XB is the stand that can accommodate the HL-S5688W.
