Philips Fidelio B5 Soundbar – TheTechZone

Philips Fidelio B5 Soundbar

This is a sexy looking sound bar, the Fidelio B5 would look great sitting under your television. What makes this sound bar stand out though is that it can switch to a 4.1 surround set up at the flick of a switch. Disguised in what looks like a standard sound bar are two wireless satellite speakers that detach and become the surround satellite speakers. They’re powered by lithium-ion batteries that have a 10 hour life. The surround satellites can also be used independently of the main sound bar via bluetooth. Bear in mind that the surround speakers are only 8W each so they’re not the most powerful. The subwoofer is a 6.5inch downward firing type. Its also pretty compact so it can be hidden away out of sight.

Connectivity wise, there is bluetooth for music playback, an HDMI 1.4 port with ARC for video output to the television, and two HDMI inputs so other devices can be connected such as a dvd player. Digital optical and coaxial inputs and analogue 3.5mm jack cover the audio inputs.

Its been reviewing well on various review sites and user reviews on Amazon are good. Definitely worth considering if you are in the market for a sound bar.
