Philips HTL5120 review


It doesn't take an expert to understand the appeal of the Philips HTL5120 ($250). It's one of the sleekest-looking sound bars there is, with a distinctive, slim design that easily sits under a TV. Its sound quality immediately gets your attention, too,...

The Philips HTL5120 is a particularly stylish sound bar with a sleek, winglike design. Its connectivity is a cut above the rest, with two HDMI inputs, two digital inputs, and built-in Bluetooth. And its virtual surround-sound processing is very good,...

While the sound is immersive, the overall sound quality isn't as good as you get from similarly priced systems. And the included remote has a confusing button layout that's tough to get used to.

The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.

Philips HTL5120 soundbar review


Soundbars are currently home cinema's hero products and the HTL5120 is a fine example of the genre. The design is more luxurious than the price tag suggests, with silky black cloth, brushed silver panels and curvy gloss-black ports at both ends. It can...

Philips HTL5120


A classy wireless soundbar with inbuilt Bluetooth.

Refined sound quality ; Generous connections ; Superb build quality and classy design

No USB port ; Virtual Surround Sound

Overall power output is quoted as 120W, pumped into the room by a 4-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter at each end of the soundbar. On board decoding for Dolby Digital and DTS allows you to feed a bitstream directly into the unit via HDMI or digital input....

If you're willing to spend £250 to boost your TV sound, look no further

Excellent sound ; Plenty of connections ; Lovely remote control

It’s a bit big ; Could do with a proper display

Philips, it seems, is on a roll – at least when it comes to soundbars. We had a few concerns about this being an oversimplified version of its pricier sibling, but those were unfounded.

Philips HTL5120 Soundbar Review


Sometimes it's great being proved wrong!

Lovely, room-filling audio ; As good with music as it is movies & TV ; Gorgeous, compact design ; Loads of connections ; A doddle to set up ; Outstanding value

Bass can distort when pushed too hard ; Remote is a bit slippy in the hand ; No OSD set up

The Philips HTL5120 is both bigger and heavier than one might expect. Its near 16cm depth will mean you'll need a fair bit of clearance on your unit unless you choose to wall-mount using the included brackets. Either way it's a very good looking...
