It would be nice if they didn’t turn off automatically (or if it. A few little annoyances: the charging lights on the remote speakers seem to be a bit random on occasion, it would be nice if they didn’t turn off automatically (or if it were a setting), and very occasionally there’s a distortion glitch that’s fixed by turning them off/on again. That being said, i love these things; replaced all my other speakers, taking up less space, easier to manage, and great quality sound (i’m no audiophile though).
Not ‘perfect’, but perfectly suited to what it is designed for. A fantastic way to add some serious depth to tv sound and some convenient music – all in a very simple and easy to use way. . A great addition to the family room: the kids love the music (either via bluetooth or spotify on the tivo box). And we get to enjoy surround sound in the evenings without the hassle of wires, etc. Sound separation in the ‘simulated’ 5. 1 mode isn’t as good as a kef 5. 1 speakers and receiver setup i have in the lounge, but then this is a fraction of the cost and a lot more family friendly. Installation with my philips f8007 tv, popcornhour, tivo and philips bluray has been seamless and popping the speakers out to setup surround sound each evening couldn’t be easieredit: and i’ve now enabled the hdmi arc and i’m using the correct port on the soundbar, so my tv and soundbar have their volumes in sync (and the sound bar powers on in sync with the tv). The volume can all be controlled from any device that can control the tv sound (soundbar remote, tv remote, tivo remote, logitech one, mobile phone, etc).
So glad i made the purchase.
Had a lot of vouchers) and i was not disappointed. My son recommended it after hearing the b5. I waited a few months for the fidelio b5 to become available on amazon (i had a lot of vouchers) and i was not disappointed. My son recommended it after hearing the b5 in a friends house. He has a bose system himself so this was some recommendation. I found it very easy to set up and the sound quality is crisp with clear notes across the range: superb even at very high volume. The sound bar is also stylish and the rear speakers easy to disconnect and reconnect. The full range of connection possibilities means i can use my old low tech turntable as well as blue tooth from my smartphone. An excellent all round product although more expensive than some lesser competitors.
Fantastic sound quality and the detachable speakers are very handy in our odd shaped lounge.
