Having a brand-new HDTV certainly has its perks. You get to watch your favorite movies on a large screen without going through the hassle of spending money to watch a movie in a cinema. You also get to ease into the comforts your entertainment room can bring you, which is a far cry from the time spent waiting in line for a movie ticket, then easing into a crowded movie house. However, the built-in speakers on televisions today usually give out sounds that lack any depth. One way to avoid this problem is to buy a sound system that would take your television’s sound capabilities to the next level. A great example would be the Philips Fidelio Premium Sound Bar.
Far from being just a simple box-like design, this beauty is created with both looks and versatility in mind. The sleek design of the Fidelio is inspired by the aerodynamic features of the wings of an aircraft. Measuring 40.7” in length, 19.7” in depth and 7.9” in height, this stylish gem can be placed either on a tv table or be easily mounted on the wall, minimizing space usage. What makes this system stand out from the rest is that it comprises of a sound bar with 2 detachable wireless speakers and a wireless subwoofer. These gems can be placed anywhere in the room for that immersive sound delivery. All of these features are encased in a stylish black finish with an aluminum trim that easily lets these beauties fit in with most modern home décor.
Excellent specifications make this audio gem worth looking into. One feature that offers versatility is the 2 HDMI outputs, allowing you to seamlessly connect your various devices. Another specification worth noting is the orientation sensor which detects if the sound bar is on the television table or is mounted on the wall. The quality of the sounds delivered is then optimized according to the system’s position. Therefore, you are always offered crystal-clear sounds, whatever the position of the audio system may be. Bluetooth technology is also prominent in this audio gem, allowing you to stream your favorite music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet and fill the room with clear, crisp sounds.
Boasting of the state-of-the-art Philips Virtual Surround Sound technology, this audiophile-worthy gem offers you a 5.1-channel surround sound listening environment that immerses you in full-bodied sound of the utmost realistic quality. The wireless speakers and woofer also give a huge impact on sounds delivered by allowing you to place them anywhere you want in the room without worrying about wire attachments. This would then result in an excellent listening audio environment filled with a clear rendition of full-range sounds. The detachable speakers are even designed to last for up to 8 hours, making movie marathons all the more enjoyable.
In conclusion, with detachable wireless speakers and a wireless subwoofer that allows for surround sound experience, this gem is versatility at its finest.
