SoundBar lets you stream music and movies seamlessly in high quality audio
With the emergence of high definition video, the increasing demand for high quality audio is nothing but natural. Traditionally, to fully enjoy an HD movie, one would require a Blu-ray Disc Player or Smart Media Player connected to an AV receiver with five satellite speakers and a subwoofer, which isthen connected to the TV. All these connections make watching movies complicated and even messy.Some may just settle for mediocre audio when they find the complexityof set-up is not worth their while.
But with the SoundBar CSS5123, Philips presents a hi-tech yet simple solution to this predicament.“Essentially, the SoundBar is an all-in-one speaker system that’s designed and engineered to play high definition movies and music, wirelessly or otherwise, while producing high quality cinematic sound. It is part of the Philips Fidelio range of premium audio products,” explains Mr. Franco Flameno, Business Development Manager for Lifestyle Entertainment, Philips Consumer Lifestyle Philippines.“In this day and age, there’s no more excuse to have a subpar audio system. Speakersystems are now expected to be multifunctional and convenient.”
A 2012 Red Dot Design winner, the SoundBarCSS5123 is a premium speaker system that caters to the demands of the thriving home entertainment market.“The unmistakably superior sound quality can be attributed to its integrated powerful speakers and a wirelesssubwoofer,”Flameno explains.“It utilizes Virtual Surround Sound technology wherein the speakers are angled accordingly to create a surround sound effect for arealistic movie experience.”Additionally, the SoundBar CSS5123features aDoubleBASS technology which enhances the bass fora deeper and fuller effect. Moreover, its sleek design offers versatility to be placed anywhere.
