Very good sound bar with good sound and price / performance ratio

Philips HTL3140B / 12 Soundbar Speaker with Wireless Subwoofer (Bluetooth, NFC, Virtual Surround) (Electronics)

Customer Review

Up & Connectivity: The soundbar itself is broken down into three parts delivered and initially simply has to be plugged together. Then, this connector must still with four Phillips screws that are included, are saved. This one should have a Phillips screwdriver at hand. The subwoofer does not require any installation. The connection of the soundbar to the TV unit can via HDMI, digital (optical or coaxial) or analog audio RCA cables done. However, the product (power supply for the Soundbar incl. Ext.) Are no cable other than the power cords at. According to instructions of the subwoofer should be placed at least three feet away from the soundbar what (which is very handy), has failed for me, unfortunately due to the length of the power cord, even when the subwoofer is otherwise wirelessly. This may be due to the modern living walls or at the location of electrical outlets. I have resorted to me so that power cable to the other device, which was longer exchange. The power cord for the Soundbar is sufficiently long, as this still requires an external power supply, which is still equipped with a long cable and a DC power supply angle plug. Why it must be a right angle plug, is not quite clear, since this kind usually is in the way when the sound bar is resting on the table or to be mounted on the wall. It is still in a single cable ties, whose purpose is also not entirely clear to me.

Design: The soundbar itself is very modern and classy, ​​fits well in modern living spaces and TV stands. The subwoofer looks at first glance quite passable, then on closer inspection, however, not quite keep up, simple box of black lacquered or veneered plywood fiberboard.

Operation: After I was finally able to persuade by means of support to my TV (! Anynet was disabled) to communicate via HDMI ARC with the soundbar, I was really surprised, because what comes out of sound. The battery is easy also for larger rooms. The surround sound is just fine, even without up several speakers in his living room (and cabling) must! Of course it is not enough for all full movies Earthquake Sound, but trouble with the neighbors the sound is always sufficient. However, a special night mode also protect! When connecting via HDMI, the soundbar turns on and off automatically when the TV Turn your device on or off. In addition, the volume of the sound bar can be set using the TV remote control. Thus, no one has to use the supplied remote control, but if you want to use some special functions (sound, equalizer, surround, audio sync, DIM, Night), one can not help to have lying around another remote control on the table. Basic functions can be operated directly on the Soundbar via a touch panel. The connection and play music over Bluetooth with an iPhone is easy, via NFC I could not test it because I do not have NFC-enabled smartphone. Also the sound via Bluetooth, USB or analog audio is good, sometimes you have to readjust the sound setting something, but that's a matter of taste. The digital inputs (optical and coaxial) I have not tested this since I had no suitable cable to. The display can be dimmed, if you like romantic or who cares a bright display in three stages.

Conclusion: Very good sound bar with good sound and price / performance ratio. Recommended!
