tiny sized and good looking

Eduardo Albuquerque, Amazon
25 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this system for its tiny size, wooden finishing of the speakers, and glass finishing of the main unit. It surely looks beautiful on my shelf and perfectly integrated into my beadroom furniture (I use a larger system in the living room). It's very elegant and superior looking. I own it for almost 2 years and haven't experienced the noise other reviewers had.

Do NOT buy this product

Jake 20/20, Amazon
9 July 2009
  • Summary: It may look good, but this system is a waste of money. I've had 2 of these systems and had problems with both. The first system lasted 6 weeks before the dvd player started malfunctioning. I exchanged it for a replancement. Alas, the second system lasted 7 months before it started making an amazingly loud grinding noise in the base unit (NOT the dvd player).

Poor Reliability

Chris L. Ward, Amazon
7 July 2009
  • Summary: This is a good sounding system for the price, however it is very unreliable. The first system I got had a problem reading DVD's, I returned it to Target and exchanged it for another one. The base amplifier then started making noise. It is the fan in the amplifier at the base of the unit. Philips offered to fix it, but won't pay for shipping, which is roughly half of what the unit costs, so I lived with it.

Poor reliability

E., Amazon
24 June 2009
  • Summary: The system worked well for about a year but then developed an annoying noise from the cooling fan in the amplifier unit, similar to what other reviewers have described. The noise became progressively worse until the entire amp failed several months later. Of course, it's a fully integrated system, so nothing can be repaired or salvaged.

Excellent sound for the money

Kamran, Amazon
2 June 2009
  • Summary: My mom bought this system for their TV upstairs without consulting me, the audiophile. I had bought a previous HT setup from Onkyo a few years back for our projector. When my mom brought the setup in, I had low expectations from the small speakers and low feature offering. Now that I've actually hooked the sucker up and have been using it for quite some time (few months), I've come to appreciate it.

It's a fine unit for the money

Paul Vail, Amazon
20 May 2009
  • Summary: Unlike the prior reviewer, I've not had any equipment failure here. The unit was purchased at discount from Target for $100, and I have far more than $100 of value out of it. The speakers sound fine. Not fantastic like my Bose speakers from the hifi, but they also weren't $300 each -- so one's expectations needs to match the production cost. The surround feature works well.

Philips HTS9810/12 Review

Wyman, Unbeatable

  • Excerpt: The Ambisound HTS9810 system comes with four speaker towers, a dedicated centre speaker, a super-slim main DVD/amplifier unit that can be wall or stand mounted and a subwoofer that comes with a 150 watt Class �D� digital amplifier. The system features the Philips 9.1 Cinema Sound technology, that can create a 9 speakers experience with the five speakers available.

#### Wir haben ein Kino Zuhaus !!!!!! ######

3 June 2009
  • Summary: Wir haben unsere heimische Fernsehtechnik ziemlich aufgehübscht in letzter Zeit. Riesiger Flachbildfernseher, Satellitenanlage, DVD Rekorder......... Mann oh Mann! Ich muss zugeben, das ist fast ein bischen zu viel des Guten. Mein Mann und ich stehen der Technik ab und an etwas ratlos gegenüber. Mein Mann bittet dann seinen sehr technik - bewanderten Cousin zu uns, wenn ein neues Hightech - Teil bei uns Einzug hält und ich.........
