Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As


Philips 55PFL6008S LED 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55" with Ambilight, Freeview HD & 4x 3D Glasses 4 5 3 3
Delighted Having decided to upgrade my television to 3D I spent many hours looking at several options having decided to go for a 55" or 60" TV. Having had Philips products in the past although never a Philips TV, and spending ages looking at the Ambilight feature I eventually plumped for this TV. At present I can only express utter delight at the quality of the TV and the stunning picture via my You View Box. The 2d to3d conversion amazed me as I have yet to purchase a 3D Blu Ray player. My only gripe is that for the price it would have been nice to receive an instruction manual without having to go on the internet to discover how to set up features such as the Ambilight. Having said this I have absolutely no hesitation in giving this TV a five star rating 24 December 2013
Excellent Picture - but very frustrating to use Having read very positive reviews of the new 2013 Philips TVs, I purchased this set from John Lewis with great expectations. Having wall hung, it looks great - the build quality is excellent. Switching the set on, the set up is a breeze and before you know it, it's working great. The picture quality from the Freeview HD channels is awesome - even the standard Freeview picture is good with some, but not too much, judder on faster moving sports/movies. The Ambilight feature, which I had not experienced before, makes a pleasant viewing experience and provides a sense of scale on this already good sized set. So, all in all an excellent choice? Unfortunately not. If you are considering purchasing this TV for use with a Virgin Media TiVo or Sky HD set up - then buy with confidence, you are getting a great TV for the money. However, if, like me, you are buying this TV for everyday Freeview use, consider other options. The problem: The remote control/software on this TV is beyond poor. The TV is very unresponsive - turning up the sound by 2 or 3 levels needs 8 or 9 pushes of the + button on the remote. The red led indicates that an IR signal is being received, however the TV prefers to ignore the command. Confronted with the built in TV guide presents similar issues - a nicely presented guide (eventually) pops up on screen, however whilst it will show channels 1 - 6, (i.e. BBC to ITV2), if you want to see the page down (i.e. 7 - 13 or even further down) there is no way of jumping. You will have to press the down cursor key about 15 times (when it should take less than half of that). As I mention above, if you are planning on using the TV as a display, relying on a Sky/Virgin/BD source, then go for it - however, the extremely (and painfully) slow response of the software/remote is a real issue. If you are considering, I would strongly recommend popping in store and trying yourself. 30 July 2013
Impressive TV! Very pleased with our new Philips TV. Overall it has a great quality feel to it and nice design. Family are really impressed by the clarity and brightness - feels like you can touch the people on screen. It connects wirelessly to our home network so I didnt have to run any additional cables to it which was a relief! We watched a old family birthday film and used to 2D to 3D change and it was great! 21 June 2013
