A good and Solid Home Cinema System,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips HTS9800 6.1ch Cineos Multi-region DVD Home Cinema System - With SACD Playback - Black (Electronics)
Having ordered via Amazon (9 days for an express delivery!!!!)... I recommend the Philips Home Cinema System.. Very easy to set-up, although I was expecting it to connect via HDMI.. The HDMI connector is an additional accessory so initially mine connected via SCART to the TV. I note one of the other reviews stating the wireless rear speakers wiped out his home wireless, the same happened to me. However a quick look in the manual and you can choose between four wireless channels for the system and it quickly resolved my issue. I agree with the changing "source" option, a bit slow but definately not a major problem. The sound quality is good, as mentioned most people have 5:1 Digital sound DVD's so 6:1 a nice rarity and excellent experience. Well any system will have cables and yes they need hiding, I also hid the woofer into a corner and hid as many cables as I could behind it. The system plays all the formats of CD's MP3's DVD's I have and very well. Although I was going to hold out for an HD based DVD system I (perhaps like many) have an XBOX which can take HD DVD for £100 or PS3 for the BlueRay. Very pleased with the system, I recommend it.
