Philips Soundbar Hts8140 Speaker

The Soundbar in a new dimension with Ambisound Indulge in a 5.1 surround sound experience from an integrated one-piece system, in any sort of room. Also delivering superb sound and picture quality, this Ambisound-powered SoundBar fits elegantly under any flat TV.It takes media from a variety of sources - stored on DVD or CD discs, iPods or USB devices - and plays the audio through its integrated speaker set, while pumping the video out to a high or standard definition television.

Analog and digital audio sockets for connecting outboard equipment such as a VCR, games console or pay TV decoder are provided, with the video from these sent directly to an accompanying TV. HDMI, component and composite (though no S-Video) connections handle the export of video to a display, with 1080p upscaling over HDMI provided. All connections are at the rear of the SoundBar behind a backplate, so if you're wall mounting the system you will need to remove the SoundBar to access them.

The bar, which can be wall-mounted or perched on a tabletop, also includes an upscaling DVD/CD player, FM radio and USB port for playing back MP3 and WMA. There?s even a spot for connecting an iPod dock.

This two-piece arrangement makes setup a breeze. We?re talking so simple even a Big Brother contestant could manage it: one cable links the sub and bar, then the bar hooks up to your telly and the sub to a wall socket. And that?s it, bar some very straightforward fiddling to get Philips? Ambisound virtual surround set up properly.

Features of Hts8140 Speaker
  1. Ambisound for 5.1 surround sound from fewer speakers

    Ambisound technology produces truly embracing multi-channel surround sound from fewer speakers. It delivers an immersive 5.1 sound experience without the constraints of sitting position, room shape or size, and without the clutter of multiple speakers and cables. Through the combined effect of psychoacoustic phenomena, array processing and precisely angled driver positioning, Ambisound delivers more sound from fewer speakers.

  2. Excellent sound quality with soft dome tweeters and DoubleBASS

    Audio quality that is out-of-this-world is brought to you by DoubleBASS and soft dome tweeters. DoubleBASS captures low frequencies and recreates them in the audible range of the subwoofer, so you hear even the deepest bass tones. Soft dome tweeters reproduce clear high and mid-range frequencies that increase the audio clarity and widen the sound stage - so you hear everything, in all its purity.

  3. FullSound to bring a CD listening experience to MP3

    What is music without heart and soul? Philips' innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you experience truly immersive music — without any distortion.
