LAS VEGAS – Today at the 2014 International CES, Philips demonstrated two new TV Surround Base sound solutions for the North American market, offering consumers amazing sound quality in a beautifully designed wooden casing that fits seamlessly under their television. Both products offer high-fidelity sound packed in a sleek design that supports a flat screen television up to 55-inches in size, making it an innovative design complement to any room. Of the two new models, the HTB3525B integrates a Blu-ray 3D player and the Philips Smart TV Internet TV service for a full home cinema experience. The Philips TV Surround Base HTB3525B is also 2014 CEA Innovations Award winner in the Home Theater category.

“In today’s home, space is at a premium and consumers want a space-saving design that will enhance their décor”, said Werner van Eck, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer WOOX Innovations, a subsidiary of Philips. “By developing an integrated sound solution that sits underneath the TV, the TV Surround Base’s sleek design offers a high quality home theater sound experience while saving space and eliminating unsightly wires. Philips Surround Base is made with premium materials, allowing them to be one of the few such devices capable of supporting larger displays.”

The TV Surround Bases’ wooden design is not only attractive – it is also ideal for conducting sound.
