Philips HTS6600 review

 

Stylish, but can it rival a true multichannel system?

Eye-catching design ; Strong picture

Noisy operation ; Feeble pseudosurround ; Average upscaling

Philips HTS6600 - 2.1 DVD System

 

It's no substitute for a proper 5.1-channel system, but it is eye-catching and should better your TV's speakers.

1080p upscaling is very much in fashion right now but the HTS6600 stops at 1080i, a decision that might make those with Full HD TVs look elsewhere. Other key features include playback of DivX Ultra from DVDs or CDs, plus MP3, WMA and JPEG files can be...

Philips HTS6600 review

 

Philips' HTS6600 is ideal for anyone who wants a stylish, inconspicuous all-in-one system. You shouldn't expect it to deliver proper surround sound from its limited speakers, though

Stunning design ; Ease of use ; Decent image quality

Sound performance doesn't compare to true surround systems ; Only 1080i video upscaling

Conclusion As a convenient integrated system that improves the picture and sound quality of your film watching beyond your TV's capabilities, the HTS6600 is a stylish success. If you want real surround sound, you'll have to introduce more speakers,...

Philips HTS6600

 

The eye-catching design carries plenty of futuristic appeal featuring a vertically mounted main unit constructed from glass and aluminium with a sliding disc draw at the side for total minimalism. And the accompanying powered subwoofer and two upright...

Compact design, ease of use, impressive image quality

Restricted surround performance, only 1080i upscaling

Started out okay, now we've scrapped it

 

Sound was always pretty good, not great. Never played nice with Harmony Remote. As another reviewer said, DVD player started showing "no disc" every time, so we scrapped the whole system and bought a blu-ray, and look to buy a new, better, set of...

Style. Sound. Input for mp3 player

DVD player broke/malfunctioned. Didn't work with Harmony Remote well

Consumer review by:

Philips HTS6500

 

While the sound is great this home theater system has more cons than pros. Takes forever to get the system to load a DVD and once it is in the system 9 out of 10 times it will tell me there is "no disc". Doesn't matter if its a brand new DVD or one...

Great sound quality

Trying to watch a DVD is nearly impossible. Switching the system back to TV is even worse

Consumer review by:

If you don't have warranty you are out of luck.

 

I buy this product but with at least 5 years of reliable warranty. Don't count on Philip's customer service and don't waste your time talking to them it is not worth of your time.

Very good price and excellent sournd quality

Sound quality is very good but DVD player is something to worry about. After using for year and half, the DVD player stop recognizing disk in the drive. It takes good amount of time to read disk. I heard this is very common problem in this model

Consumer review by:

Very temperamental. Would not buy again

 

I read many review about this but still settled on the best price unit on the market. I now have another DVD player that we use and only use this unit for the sound sytem portion. Frustrating and this should not be the case. Bottom Line - I would not...

Good sound, DVD and Sound system in one unit

DVD does not always play the first time. Many times you have to insert/eject numerous times and wait between cycles. Little ones have short attention span to wait for thier movie, which can take sometimes 10 minutes to get the movie playing

Consumer review by:

Been great for two years now.

 

Sound Quality

Nothing. You get whatyou pay for

Amazing HTIB 2.1 System!

 

Bottom Line is this system is wonderful, very powerful and the Clarity for a 2.1 system is unbelievable a family member has the Bose 3-2-1 system and for the price and crisp all around sound Its a wonderful system...This is a VIRTUAL surround sound so...

Sound is amazing Very Crisp and Clear ; Picture the Upconverting Dvd player works flawlessly makes your regular dvds look beautiful ; Quality Very durable.. not cheap and thin plastic very sturdy

NOTHING FOR ME! But for the people that are looking at this system follow the Manual and go to the website and install firmware first VERY SIMPLE ; Takes care of the problems people post on here.... they didn't listen to instructions
