Summary: I wish I could rate this below 1 star. Blu-ray player failed 2 months out of warranty - press power, "Philips" displays, then powers off. Unplugged, sat for 1 minute, plugged in, same issue. Cust service tech said this was a common problem for the unit. Phillips gave grace period on warranty and sent me new unit (awesome!), which itself failed with same symptoms.

Summary: My previous Home Theater System was a Philips and it was perfectly fine, but you know the drill. The manufacturers always have what was in last year's or the year before's top-of-the-line model and bring those features down to the mid-priced to moderate priced models. What seemed out of reach financially and maybe seemed a bit "do I really need this?
Summary: WE just bought a 46" Philips Hd flat screen TV and we bought the philips HTS3252B Home Theater System and are very happy with the unit as it matched perfit fit with the new TV . It Arrived when it was suposed to .This unit replaced a 20 year old Philips home theater system.
Summary: I purchased this on a Thursday and the actual box started making a loud noise by Wednesday. Mind you, I only watched 20 minutes of a movie on the player the entire time I had it. I tried finishing the movie days later and that's when it started making a noise that was similar to someone trying to start a car engine that won't start. I tried some troubleshooting and spoke to Philips who confirmed it was a brick. I took it back to Target and got my money back.
Summary: I purchased this item as a christmas present for my mom and dad and while the unit sounds great and the blueray player is really sharp...i am still dissapointed! First of all: Amazon's product description is WRONG! NO IPOD DOCK IS INCLUDED!!! The second issue with this system was mentioned by another reviewer but i want to confirm what he said.
Summary: I purchased this system for a Philips 46" LED-LCD TV. I've connected the TV to the unit with a digital audio cable. A major flaw with the design of this system is that it forgets the source setting when you turn it off. When turned on, it defaults to the Blu-Ray player as the source for sound. In my case, when I want to hear the sound of my TV, I set the source to the TV's digital audio cable.
