Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips HTL5120/12 Wireless Soundbar Speaker with 120W Integrated Subwoofer/Orientation Sensor (Electronics)
I sent back an LG 9.1 system and after 10 days of deciding opted for this. I chose it because it was one speaker and didn’t even have a separate sub.
I read the reviews and all said it was a top piece of kit. I had double the amount to spend, but still chose this. I also purchased the Sony 3D 4100 player to accompany this unit.
Its big, but not high, so does not impede the tv screen. So is it any good??
YES! I cannot believe how good the sound is on this speaker, the bass is as deep as any standalone sub around about the £500 price mark. All the reviews said don’t touch the surround effect, but me and my daughter tested this to some length and agreed this affect was amazing when watching a 3D blu ray in 5.1 (soundbar has a built in 5.1 decoder). The surround effect can clearly be heard behind. Can be wall mounted (bracket provided and with drill template). Has 3D pass through, so all inputs (2) can be passed through the soundbar by HDMI and then just one HDMI to the TV.
I love this bit of kit and cannot wait to watch more films. Forget all the speakers all around the room, forget a soundbar with sub. Get this and get it now! I love it.
