Philips HTS9800W

 

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

A stylish system with the performance to match

Great performance ; Stunning design

Cumbersome connections box

Rich in features, this sets a new benchmark that all-in-one systems should aspire to

Philips HTS9800W review

 

Cheaper rivals are setting high standards at lower prices, but the Philips HTS9800 is still a good buy

Build and styling are second to none ; good sonic integration ; fine pictures

A little pricey among the current crop of rival systems

Still among the best, even given the emergence of cheaper rivals

Philips HTS9800W

 

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.

The large system is overcrowded by components including a separate connector box and a wireless receiver but the sleek, futuristic styling and flexible positioning means it appears surprisingly inconspicuous. The compact main unit can be stood upright...

Superb styling and flexible positioning; 6.1 speakers with wireless rear channels; advanced surround processing; SACD playback; outstanding picture and sound performance

Quality of design and construction is a big problem (system sent back for service twice during warranty period with lists of problems). When returning the system a third time for service (Philips had still failed to fix their annoying "feature" of the...

Visually, attractive. Significant effort was made "making it look good.â

Loud popping sounds on rear speakers (fixed after first service). Remote control failure (fixed after 2nd service). A gentle hum could be heard when powered on. The system is extremely slow and unresponsive when switching between modes or putting in...

Does anyone know why my IPOD videos won't play on the system? It keeps telling me to put in the video accessory, even when I have put that cable in? Any help would be great!
