Philips introduces new range of Home Theater Systems featuring superb sound and Smart TV
Barcelona, Spain – The 2011 range of Philips Home Theater Systems is a perfect example of Philips’ efforts to offer the best combination of great sound quality and design, at every price point. Philips introduces a complete range of 5.1, 2.1 and SoundBar systems. Revealing three of the main models, the new range includes the Philips SoundHub 9000 series – a 2.1 system with titanium tweeters for Crystal Clear Sound, the Philips SoundHub 7000 series – a 2.1 system with elegant speakers in aluminum and glass, and the Philips Immersive Sound 5.1 Home theater system 5000 series with 3D angled speakers.
All these systems also feature Philips’ latest development in the field of connected entertainment: Smart TV. With one of the most comprehensive smart TV packages available, this range of Philips home theater systems turns every TV into a connected media portal that can hook you up with online content; stream music, photos and videos from your tablet, smart phone or laptop.
Philips SoundHub 9000 and 7000 series
SoundHub is a category designed to meet the needs of a growing group of consumers who are looking for a cinema experience at home and for a great system for listening to music at the same time, while they are keen to keep their living rooms free of clutter of many speakers and cables. The Philips SoundHub 2.1 range (two speakers and a subwoofer as well as integrated 3D Blu-ray disc playback) offers the perfect solution for these consumers.
The SoundHub 9000 series is a 2.1 system with titanium tweeters for undistorted Crystal Clear Sound, elegant and compact design and the latest integrated connectivity features.
All the qualities of titanium which make it suitable for the Aerospace industry also make it the perfect material for a truly innovative tweeter – and for producing detailed sound. Titanium’s rigidity and optimal balance between strength and weight mean it doesn’t deform easily, avoiding distortion in sound reproduction and delivering pure, detailed sound.
The SoundHub 7000 series comes with soft dome tweeters instead, which reproduce clear high and mid-range frequencies that enhance the overall clarity of the sound from the speakers.
Working alongside the tweeters in both models, Philips proprietary Premium Class-D Amplifiers are designed to preserve the original sound source for greater audio signal accuracy, allowing you to hear acoustic details in music and movies exactly as the artist or director intended, for a truly immersive experience.
With the Philips SoundHub you can lose yourself in full HD 3D Blu-ray and enjoy a truly cinematic experience in your living room. The WiFi connection and the Smart TV feature allow you to enjoy movies, pictures and infotainment whenever you want at the simple touch of a button. It delivers the fastest Net TV experience to-date with a large selection of apps including video on demand offerings, smart phone remote control app and easy content sharing in your home via DLNA.
Fed up with the clutter of cables and connections? For a more streamlined home, the Philips SoundHub 9000 series comes with built-in Wi-Fi, cutting edge connectivity features and an integrated dock for iPod or iPhone. The Philips SoundHub 7000 series comes with a separate dock iPod and iPhone.
The elegant, fully integrated design in aluminium and glass with a compact center unit and unique-angled speaker design means the Philips SoundHub Home Theater Systems look sleek and stylish in any home.
Philips Immersive Sound 5000 series
The new Philips Immersive Sound 5000 series 5.1 home theater system will be the center piece of your living room for all kinds of entertainment.
Its dynamic 3Directional Angled Speakers with 1000W RMS power disperse the sound evenly around the room, so you truly feel part of the movie action.
