Philips Fidelio B8/12 SkyQuake review: An Atmos soundbar that fails to deliver


Atmos without the atmosphere – the Philips Fidelio B8 is expensive and disappointing

Supports DTS Digital Surround ; Sleek, low-profile design ; Plenty of inputs

Harsh-sounding top end ; No Wi-Fi connectivity ; Expensive

It doesn’t sound as good; it doesn’t produce as convincing a height effect; and it doesn’t offer as comprehensive a list of features. It would have to be £200 cheaper to even start to offer a tempting alternative.
