Soundbar

  • Summary: Bought it to use in our camper. It works out well in a small room. DVD was a prime reason for the choice, combined with a good price/discount. Pros Compact simple solution to improve on plasma TV speakers. Provides a DVD player,making it a good contender for a camper. Plays iPod also, with on screen menus. Although I preferred to go back to using the in ceiling speaker system after trying it out. Plays TV sound. Simple connects - 1 HDMI and 1 pair of phono connectors.

Great value

  • Summary: Mid-range sound rendition is very good. DVD/CD player and AM/FM radio simple to use. Very easy to wire/connect and toggle between inputs. Still, like all these products, requires the use of a remote separate from the Comcast cable remote. Other than that, no complaints. Excellent value,I believe. Philips AmbiSound Home Theater Sound Bar with Integrated 1080p-Upscaling DVD/MP3 Player, HTS8100/37 Doubt I'll use the MP-3 "dock" since I don't have/use any product having it.

  • Summary: After placing order I received the sound bar in about 2 weeks, The first one they gave me a tracking number got "lost," I think it never shipper. I called them and asked them to look into it and they then sent another one the next day. After receiving it in about 1 week I found that after it was set up the DVD player did not work. I called next day and requested that they only send a replacement sound bar.

  • Summary: My girlfriend works for Philips and she wanted this item. I bought it for a great price.....Installation was easy, setup was a little nerve wrecking but it's definitely a great product.....The sound is great wether your using the dvd or fm tuner. We turned the volume all the way up and with no distortion it still sounded great....

Great Sound Great Value

  • Summary: I bought this sound bar to replace a 5 year old home theater system and dvd player. I wanted to get rid of the tangle of wires and cords and improve the dvd player (formerly only 480p). I was willing to lose the "surround sound 6.1" capabilities because my new house does not lend itself currently to descretely wiring all the speakers. The sound from this bar is more than an adequate replacement.

Sounds Great but does not replace 5.1 sound

  • Summary: I bought this product knowing it was not as good as surround sound. I did not want wires running all around my living room. The sound from my TV is greatly enhanced even thought it's not true surround sound. The unit looks great under my Phillips TV. After reading some of these reviews and some people questioning the sound. I was connecting my unit and needed some support. I was surprised to reach a real person who spoke english. They were pleasant and very helpful.

  • Summary: Product is full of features and worth of the price you pay. Upconversion is good enough and Philips used best technology available in the market. Do not expect 5.1 home theater quality as its only 2.1 channel only; overall its really good. If you donot feel hassel of installing 5 speakers then I will recomend to buy 5.1 as it's sound quality will be good. I recomend this product for that much price.

  • Summary: The soundbar is a great addition to our new flat-screen TV. Dvds sound great. When we play music cds on it however, the sound quality isn't as good. We don't get the nice bass we did on our old stereo (even when you increase the bass volume on the remote). That is the only drawback.
