An incredibly stylish offering from Philips that also sounds great

Uber-stylish design, great sound, wireless back speakers, good data CD functions, HDMI

Clunky wiring system at front, limited connections, not the best remote

Philips HTS9800W review

 

Philips' HTS9800W is about as good as home-cinema systems get at this price. It offers a stylish design and an advanced specification that doesn't sacrifice picture or sound performance

Futuristic design ; Video upscaling ; 6.1 speakers and processing ; Flexible positioning ; SACD support ; Ease of use ; Excellent sound and picture performance

Separate connector box ; wireless' speakers still require limited connections ; No USB connectivity

Music performance lacks a little timing and high frequencies can occasionally sound bright depending on what you're playing, but compared to equivalent systems it's more than capable

Home-cinema in a box from Philips! Real cinemas, they found, are too big to fit…

Stylish, well made, particularly good picture quality

Not cheap. More muscle available for the money

Philips HTS9800W

 

The Philips HTS9800W is a stylish wireless 6.1 surround sound system that handles a wide range of disc and file formats as well as most of the latest surround sound formats.

Powerful, high performance system ; Up-scales 576p DVDs to 1080i ; Extensive format support ; HDMI connectivity ; Wireless rear speakers

Rear speakers drowned out by front channel ; Plugging cables into the main DVD unit is fiddly ; Does not support XviD ; No USB host function

Overall sound quality is very impressive, and blistering volume levels can be reached as long as you don't mind some distortion with certain tones.

Philips HTS9800W

 

Quality of design and construction is a big problem (system sent back for service twice during warranty period with lists of problems). When returning the system a third time for service (Philips had still failed to fix their annoying "feature" of the...

Visually, attractive. Significant effort was made "making it look good.â

Loud popping sounds on rear speakers (fixed after first service). Remote control failure (fixed after 2nd service). A gentle hum could be heard when powered on. The system is extremely slow and unresponsive when switching between modes or putting in...

Does anyone know why my IPOD videos won't play on the system? It keeps telling me to put in the video accessory, even when I have put that cable in? Any help would be great!
