There's more to Sonowave than just a gimmick

Attractive ; Sonowave is excellent ; Excellent pictures

Philips HTS-6510 review

 

Impressive picture performance and Ambisound technology spreads the sound and delivers a fair amount of detail

Detailed picture ; spacious spread of sound, intuitive remote and menus

Subwoofer doesn’t integrate well ; 1080i upscaling

The HTS-6510 sells at a very good price, but still makes a fine case for itself

Review: Philips HTS6510 SonoWave DVD system

 

Philips' one-box virtual surround system gets a grilling...

Looks good, effective tilt at cut-price surround sound

Sound suffers compared to 5.1 system, weak and unfocused bass

The HTS6510 is designed with small rooms in mind and for people who put aesthetics and space limitations above overall sound quality. It will certainly add a certain grace to any room, but it flounders in larger spaces and won't take the place of a...

Philips HTS6510

 

It has great simple outline, and the sound quality is very good.

No output access for using other additional speakers. Quite complicated to sort out, and once I did, I had yet another remote controller, to add to TV and Sky. Why is it set to standby and not an off button, hasn;t the industry learned yet that we need...

Philips HTS6510

 

Easy to set up, no need for lengthy cabling to remote speakers. HD images excellent and plenty of output power.

Sub Woofer box a little large (compared to other products) makes it difficult to locate. Sound settings limited, just preset options - Rock, Classical etc. and no equaliser. Control Unit LCD display is recessed within unit which can be hard to see if...

Philips HTS6510

 

It’s Compact with effective up scaling for ordinary DVD’s. Whilst the surround sound might not satisfy the purists out there it is a fine compromise from a two main speaker solution. FM/AM radio was a nice bonus.

More control over the Bass and Treble settings(It relies on presets) would have been handy as the Bass can get a little busy at times.
