Philips HTS8100 Review

Digitaltrends
17 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Many people don’t bother contemplating installing a home theater in their bedroom because they don’t have the room for an amplifier, let alone all the speakers and wiring required. But Philips’ $799 USD HTS8100 might just prove the solution that changes their mind, because it doesn’t just combine a DVD player, amplifier with radio and a set of speakers into a single, compact shape.
  • Pros: All-in-one unit featuring speaker and DVD player; supports various audio/video formats
  • Cons: Lacks direct bass control; DVD insertion is delicate
