Philips Blu-ray Surround Base with 2.1-Channel Integrated Subwoofer
For a neater, more minimalist look that doesn’t sacrifice functionality, this compact HDTV base combines three vital components of a modern home theater: a Blu-ray player, sound bar, and subwoofer. It also comes loaded with popular online streaming apps including Netflix and Vudu, so movie night isn’t limited to your personal Blu-ray collection.
Detailed Sound, Minimal Clutter
The 2.1-channel setup elevates your TV’s audio to give you an experience that’s closer to that of surround sound. Laterally placed speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. The integrated subwoofer intensifies the effect by adding rumbly low notes that most TVs’ built-in speakers can’t match. With only one component to install, the 2.1-channel setup strikes a much cleaner look than full-blown home theater systems.
Dolby Digital helps you feel the passion in an actor’s voice, the beat of a song, and the gravity of a video game’s final battle. It enhances everything from movies to MP3s by elevating what you’re most likely to hear, such as heated dialogue or an ominous door closing, while suppressing static and other background noise. The result is clear digital sound in everything from home theater systems to wireless headphones.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth streams music wirelessly from a compatible device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. The wireless connection also frees up your smartphone to multitask, or sit safely in your pocket, unlike the short leash of an audio cable. For added convenience, NFC (Near Field Communication) makes connecting to select devices especially easy; simply tap the device against the system, and you’re ready to stream music.

For more than a century, Philips has been at the forefront of a host of electrical innovations. The company started by selling light bulbs in the Netherlands in the late 1800s, but pretty soon, its products were derived from its own research. That research contributed to products used today all over the world, including medical X-ray tubes, radios, TVs, electric shavers, audio cassettes, CDs, and DVDs. Philips’s innovative spirit lives on with an added aspect of sustainability: the company’s EcoVision program is aimed at improving people’s lives while bolstering energy efficiency and increasing the amount of recyclable material in its products.
