Philips make decent kit. These days they seem to be erring towards budget options despite continuing to make fine televisions. If you are looking to partner your TV with a bit of added woof and bang, how does this latest budget sound bar weigh up?

As far as a sound bar goes, where Yamaha rule the roost for high fidelity, at this price the Philips is certainly in budget territory. At first glance the bar itself looks smart and at 79cm will happily sit under a 90cm wide 40" screen. With the power, volume and input select buttons and USB and audio in inputs along the top, it's handy enough. The sub woofer is a cheap, light mdf box with the merest chicken wire cable to connect to the clip speaker input on the bar. The remote is small and limited to input select, volume and surround option. Round the back we see the budget kick in; no HDMI input, just optical, coaxial and RCA audio. No cables are provided, so be prepared to scramble around for one, most likely a red/white audio will be lurking in a box somewhere.

So does it work and how does it sound?

First there is a positive.

The Bluetooth sound is rich and powerful, surprisingly so. That makes it convenient when you want to hear a tune from your phone or MP3 player but surely these days most households are spoilt for choice with audio options. Still, it's a tidy add on.

Then on to two TV's and a PC. In both cases it was so lacklustre that a switch back to the internal speakers heralded a relief. Albeit one TV is pushed through a hi fi and decent speakers and the other a Sony 20". It could not compete either way. On the PC it was particualrly poor and shallow with iplayer and music.

Better than my LG tv speakers but thats about it. Bluetooth is good for connecting to mobile devices. Surround setting just creates an echo which is very annoying when people speak. Bass and Tone settings not saved when turned off which is a real pain. Shame really but put in the extra money and buy a full surround system. Thought id use it a lot more but hardly put it on.

For the price, this product is great. The sound quality is perfectly acceptable (again, considering the price). It can certainly struggle at higher volumes but as a bedroom speaker bar this is far superior to my TV speakers. It benefits from several input connections, of which I only use 2 (Optical for my TV, Bluetooth for my phone) and the remote allows for quick selection between sources.
The remote is very slim and small which is great at not taking up room on the bedside table but does have a tendenacy to get lost sometimes.

The biggest (and only) negative with this product is that it always defaults to it's own sound levels and they are terrible. The bass is nearly at maximum which causes the sub-woofer to boom far too much. It took a bit of working out but basically there are 10 levels for Bass and Treble (it flashes when at the limits). The sound is perfect when bass and treble are at 5, however the bass defaults to 9 on startup, causing an annoying flurry of button pressing to equalise it back to 'normal' sound. Why on earth it doesn't just remember the last setting is beyond me. For this reason alone, I would hesitate about buying the product again, although the sound quality is very good.
The only other negative is the standby LED is a very bright blue. If this is in your bedroom it can be very annoying. I covered it over with a tiny bit of black electical tape and it's hardly visible. Thankfully, the running LEDs are dark orange which are much less distracting.

Ok so I never write review but this product has impressed me so much it would a travesty if I didn't. I bought to use as room speakers for my laptop as I could play music via bluetooth from anywhere in my room and also play from my phone, both work very well and so far and would recommend this set up as I have had no problems with it.

The sound quality is clear and smooth and the bass is punchy and loud but for watching TV and films it is not overpowering however for loud house and rock music it can be very aggressive which is good.

The speakers are very loud I rarely have them over 50% which is adequately loud to annoy my flatmate upstairs haven't pushed it to %100 but at around 80% the walls started to shake.

The surround sound is a bit disappointing for music however makes up for itself when it comes to films as it really gives that cinema experience.

The speakers although plastic are well built and require very little assembly (4 screws) the remote has functions for controlling bass treble and volume mute surround sound aux, audio in bluetooth usb optical and coaxial and is sleek and responsive.

The ONLY flaw I have found with the speakers is the manual, it is completely and utterly useless, however I had no problems setting up and connecting so no harm done.

My flatmate was so impressed annoyed he has now purchased his own.

Reasonably easy to put together (although note no cables were provided), although it took a while as the "quickstart" leaflet was pointless, so had to go and fine the proper manual on the internet. Why they don't provide this, is baffling.

Having solved these issues it didn't work. The bluetooth was fine, but nothing wired would work. Tried with a few devices. Was advised to update the firmware, perform a factory reset (which I did) before being advised that it was a dud that I should return. Checked the symptoms on the internet and others had the same experience, which suggests a poor quality assurance.
