Hello tech fans, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013, checking out the Philips HTL5120 sound bar. So I quite like the design of the speaker, I'm told that it's suppose to look like a plane's wing, so it's kinda got this tapering rounded effect on the side. It has an integrated subwoofer, it's 42-inches long and it pumps out 120 watts of sound. For playback, you can connect using USB or you can use Bluetooth to connect something like your iPad or your laptop or maybe your smart phone. When you're hooking it up to your TV however you want to use the two HDMI in-out sockets on the back. Something quite new about this sound bar is that if you change its orientation, so you need it up slightly, then the drives on the inside will mechanically swivel around so you don't lose any sound quality. I like the design, it's not too ostentatious, it just got this black canvass over the front in this little aluminum effect on the front. It's quiet-- quiet a demure sort of style. I quite like the look of it but let me know what you think. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Philips HTL 5120 sound bar.
As much as we've appreciated HP's efforts in bringing the slim tower to the mainstream, we cannot recommend this off-the-shelf Pavilion Slimline s5120y. Even considering its low price, its design, features, and performance all come up short next to its retail competition.
The Philips DC912 squanders its eye-catching design with subpar sound.
At CES 2007, we look at the Philips HTS8100 Ambisound Home Theatre, a very sleek and cool theatre system nicknamed the "sound bar." It has Dolby Digital 5.1 virtual surround sound, a subwoofer, and a DVD player.
The exceedingly stylish Philips HTS8100 SoundBar packs the home theater experience--including a DVD player--into one slim package plus a sub.
Philips' Fidelio iPod/iPhone speaker dock is a good value with impressive sound and a solid,attractive design.
Sony's HT-CT150 sound bar home theater system sounds great and is way ahead of the competition with its three HDMI inputs; however, its IR receiver limits the subwoofer's placement options.
The affordable and well-designed Philips Notebook SoundBar SPA5210B travels well and is a worthy upgrade over your internal laptop speakers.
A stylish, high-resolution plasma, this Philips is hampered by so-so home-theater performance.
The Philips Portable Media Center PMC7230 is a stylish device with lots of potential, but it's not as impressive as we expected.
The Philips BDP7200 has a unique design and is Profile 1.1 compliant, but subpar Blu-ray image quality and the lack of onboard audio-decoding options limit its appeal.
