Hands on: Philips Fidelio E5 review


Speaker system meets Lego

Excellent concept ; Satellites produce pleasing sound

Distracting lights ; Some slight design quirks

Philips Fidelio E5 review


Philips has always been a company known for its innovative ethos. And that still remains, despite the CE aspects of the brand now being split between two separate entities (TP Vision for TVs, Woox Innovations for audio, recently acquired by Gibson)....

Flexible functionality; impressively punchy audio performance; simple installation; neat styling

Operation can be a bit tricksy; speakers are quite large; surround channels lack body

Get Surround on Demand with Philips clutter-busting 2.1-channel system

Offers true surround sound without clutter ; Stylish design and solid build quality ; Big soundstage and superb detail clarity ; Generous features and connections

Thin-sounding surround speakers ; No HD audio decoding, USB port or 4K passthrough ; Relatively expensive

Polished performance, classy looks and wireless surround speakers make Philips’ ingenious 2.1 system money well spent, despite some minor shortcomings.
