Philips HTS9800W review

 

This ultra stylish, well specified 6.1-channel system boasts wireless rear speakers, which is a godsend if you're a stickler for tidiness. The unusual main unit features a touch-screen control panel and a side-loading disc slot.

Great erformance ; Stunning design

Cumbersome connections box

There are an awful lot of nice things to say about Philips' HTS9800W home theatre system. This 6.1 wireless home theatre system has an air of Bang & O...

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

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

An incredibly stylish offering from Philips that also sounds great

Going for an all-in-one system doesn't mean you have to miss out on the high-definition revolution. With its wireless rear speakers, this Philips system also has the answer to trailing cable embarrassment

Great erformance ; Stunning design

Expert review by:

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

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.
