30 Minutes from the Box to a Home Theater System
 
And much of that 30 minutes was spent clearing out the old system.I purchased this to replace our old home theater system. Our previous model, with its multiple speakers and tangle of wires, was a "true" 5.1 surround sound. I have never been crazy about stringing up speaker wire, and the setup of our living room meant that it was bound to look unsightly. I wanted this sound system to do 2 things: look nice and produce good sound, and it has delivered on both very well....

Philips AmbiSound
 
I recently purchased this puppy a few weeks ago, and have been waiting to write a review. Normally I wouldn't write this, but seeing as there is only one review available, I felt it necessary for other people seeking a customer POV.To start off, the box it came in was bigger than me haha. I was really surprised when it arrived and soon was setting it up with my LCD. Setup was fairly simple, and I imagine anyone with a little tech knowledge wont have any problems with this system. ...

Right product, right look, for the right room
 
I read about this from CES. I'd say most of the comments are pretty accurate. I installed it in my family room, a pretty big open room, which backs up to the open kitchen- not the ideal room for surround sound. The unit sits on the mantel underneath the Sharp 42" Aquos. First impression was watching Gladiator. Bass was fine- not awesome, but not bad. This is the only minor drawback. But clarity from the main unit, and the simulated surround sound, is absolutely fantastic. The claim of 1080...

A Great Sound Bar
 
To start, I have to say that this sound bar deserves a 5 star rating for it's look alone. The fact that Philip's has managed to pack a DVD player into it, is pure genius. So then why am I giving it a 4 star rating? A few small things really (Intruth, I'd give it a 4.5 if Amazon allowed 1/2 stars).Included in the box is almost everything you'll need for the install. The only thing missing? - an audio cable to run from your TV back to the sound bar so you can listen to your TV through ...

Deep Sound, but where's the surround?
 
Always a tricky one when reviewing something which sounds great, but doesnt really do what it says on the tin.I read a few reviews on the Phillips sound bar and decide to go for it rather than the Yahama, due to its inclusion of an upscaling DVD player being built in.My house just doesnt lend itself well to placing 5 speakers, particularly rears, so I thought what the heck I'll try this.The audio quality is excellent, deep bass (not quite sharp enough with mov...

Neat, simple design, great sound
 
Here is my take on the Philips Sound Bar after owning it for a week:Size and look of the unit is amazing. I did not wall mount to unit, but rather opted for having it sit underneath my TV on the TV stand. The piano black fininsh on the DVD Door and iPod dock complement the piano black finish on my TV. Definately a very stylish and eye catching device.I have the following hooked up to the Sound Bar:1. Digital HD Cable Box via digital COAX cable2. iPod Dock v...

Good looking home theater system
 
Best part about this system is the simplicity in term of look and set up. Black finish matches with my black Phillips LCD TV. It comes with a main unit and a loud speaker. So not many things to hook up. It is pretty simple to set up if you plan to just have it sitting on the top of the cabinet. I decided to hang it on the wall, right below my flat LCD TV. It looks just gorgeous.You can play CD, DVD, and AM/FM radio. It has MP3 line-in, iPOD connector and a beautiful black docking u...

Good for a small apartment
 
I have a 52 inch LCD 1080p Phillips, and the Soundbar is above it. The DVD is great, much better picture than a standard 720p DVD player. I watched the Star Wars DVD and there was pixelation with a 720p player, none with the Soundbar. The sound has crisp treble, solid bass, and descent midrange. It is a great solution if you have limited space. It comes with a wall mount, which works well. In addition, the iPod dock makes watching video from iTunes easy, with great resolution. No need to buy the...

Video Noise in 1080p
 
Be careful buying this product if you expect to upconvert to 1080p resolution. There is a discussion thread concerning this in the discussion area so check it out. Essentially you get significant video noise in the form of green vertical lines in 1080p. Frankly, the more I read the more I suspect that most people simply haven't tried 1080p and thus haven't encountered this yet. Or they don't have a 1080p capable TV. Could be wrong about that but I do know that Philips has their head in the ...

Too much trebble. Very disappointed.
 
Alrighty, hear is the thing. I bought this system not expecting great sound. You get what you pay for, and as long as it was as good as my Ipod speaker, I'd be happy. Well, it wasn't as good. So very tinney. This thing would give me a headache after just a half hour of listening. I sent it back and dropped a boat load of dough on Paradigm speakers, Oppo dvd and an Onkyo receiver. In all fairness, there is no comparing a $2000 system with a 6 hundi. It is just that, my expectations were not high ...
