Andy, Manchester I love Philips

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful looking and fantastic sound and image quality. Sexy mechanism for opening the DVD and the lovely white lights on the display.
Bad points:
Most of the inputs are on the subwoofer and it means that I have a lot of wires going backward and forward, maybe its just the way I am set up? It just makes it more difficult as the sub must be 1 metre from the TV.

Manufacturer's Description

The Soundbar in a new dimension

Indulge in a 5.1 surround sound experience from an integrated one-piece system, in any sort of room. Also delivering superb sound and picture quality, this Ambisound-powered SoundBar fits elegantly under any flat TV.

FullSound™ to bring a CD listening experience to MP3

What is music without heart and soul? Philips’ innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you experience truly immersive music — without any distortion.

HDMI 1080p upscales to high definition for sharper pictures

HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution – ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by “p” in “1080p”) eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio, without conversions to analogue – delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.
