Summary: By far the best sound bar I tried, great 2 detachable side speakers. The con is only one on/off button on the sound bar itself. If your remote control is either lost or out of order, the sound bar will be unusable.
Excerpt: Have had the soundbar for about a month now and cant't imagine watching TV/films without it. After thinking my hearing was going watching TV because speech started sounding like mumbles the Phillips system demonstrated that it was clearly the poor speakers on the TV. Now everything is clear. Really easy to setup, was up and running 10 minutes after opening the box. Would definitely recommend.
Bassy & loud enough with an additional "ooh" factor

Summary: I'd looked a a number of soundbars, mostly 2.1 and this appealed to me from the point of view of the surround and it doesn't disappoint. Having a 4 year old who likes to lift things up and a wife who likes things out of the way, the idea of having surround speakers which sit in the ends of the bar, charging up ready for use is great. When you come to use them however, it's even better.
Summary: following a firmware update, performs spectacularly well, better than my former high end separates. Totally immersive, delivers centre dialogue and audio material clearly and concisely. Excellent all round.
For excellent sound with the ability to have surround sound when you want it with no wires.

Summary: I have always preferred surround sound but objected to the wiring everywhere and the precise location of speakers. With this system you detach the surround speakers only when you want to and position them where best suits you. When coupled to the main speaker and charging the sound (with the wireless sub woofer) is excellent (as it is on surround). The wireless sub woofer works perfectly.
Summary: This is an amazing soundbar. The set-up is fairly easy and straightforward (having a tv with HDMI ARC is preferable but there are other connections, e.g. optical, coaxial, etc) and the sound quality is vastly better than just the tv on it's own. Connecting your mobile or mp3 via bluetooth couldn't be simpler. For what I paid for this item I am hugely impressed.
