Philips have already made a good presence in the world of audiophiles through their Fidelio range, and the HTL9100 Soundbar takes it one step forward by providing the same solution to the people seeking style, convenience, and an authentic home cinema experience.
The beauty is that it work in two modes:
- With the speakers attached, it operates as a single sidebar offering high quality stereo or a wide sound stage.
- Separate and relocate the wireless surround speakers, and suddenly the system automatically switches to multi-channel mode and gives you true surround sound experience.
As with all Fidelio equipment, this features high quality TI CLASS-D Amplifiers, with built in DAC. It also features built-in Orientation Sensors, which detect whether they are horizontal or vertical (wall mounted).
The detachable speakers offer up to 10 hours non-stop playback, and are recharged through the main system. They also work on their own bandwidth, meaning no interference from Wifi or Bluetooth signals.
Selling at a RRP of £699, this chic and subtle device promises a great sound, crisp notes, and a true surround sound experience.
