Fantastic innovative philips soundbar. This soundbar from philips absolutely doesn’t disappoint. I can’t believe that we don’t see this product prominent in our shops today. For anyone wanting the convenience of a fabulous quality sound for both tv,movies and music combining the flexibility of a fixed soundbar or separate the two end speakers and have full surround sound system or. And yes there is more the ability to take your speakers to another room or garden and play your music across bluetooth from your phone or tablet in isolation to that speaker. Its easy to set up and neatly provides a connection hub for all your hdmi connections including hdmi arc direct from your tv. It has addition optical connections if you should want to use them but i haven’t as hdmi is easy and simple to use from sky hd box,blue ray player and tv. Well done philips for a great product and if this was demonstrated in large retail stores it would sell like hot cakes.

Pound for pound you will struggle to find a better soundbar on the market. Awesome sound quality wireless surround sound that works faultlessly. I also have 2 b&w zeppelin air’s, which i have always liked the sound of, but i have sat down and just played a youtube video from ultra 2015 (axwell & ingrosso or martin garrix) separated the surround speakers, turned it right up, and sat there thinking wow. Yes when the surround speakers are detached the sound drops out for a second while it all connect wirelessly, but it is just a second.If you need any more proof the b5’s predecessor (htl9100) won soundbar of the year from whathifi.
Great sound, but some serious issues. . When this system first arrived, the first thing i noticed was how heavy the package was. This is often a sign of good things to come with speakers. Opening the package and you find that almost all the weight is in the wireless sub-woofer. This is quite large but very slim, so can fit unobtrusively behind or under a sofa for example. The main box though i thought was very light weight. Setting up was not too difficult. Initially i could not get the sub and the main unit to pair, but after some searching online, i found that the sub-woofer has a tiny pairing button. Press that and the link light starts flashing, move it to within three feet of the main unit and they should pair. I have a new lg 4k smart tv and a virgin tv v6 box.
