Philips Fidelio 4.1-Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (Refurbished)
This sleek sound bar is all about flexibility: detachable speakers simulate the surround sound of bigger systems, dual HDMI ports connect with multiple HD sources, and Bluetooth syncs with enabled devices for seamless listening.
Built-in Surround-Sound System
While the Fidelio is capable of being integrated into larger 5.1- or 7.1-channel speaker setups, you can achieve comparable surround-sound effects with just the sound bar itself. It’s built with detachable speakers on both ends that can be arranged around the room. This helps give your movies more realistic audio—car engines seem to roar past your ear during chase scenes, and approaching armies can be heard far in the distance before an epic battle.
Audio Without Wires
Thanks to its Bluetooth technology, this sound bar gives you more control over how you listen to your audio. In lieu of a cable connection, the Fidelio can pair wirelessly with most Bluetooth-enabled components and mobile devices. This means you’ll be able to stream music stored on your laptop or DJ a party with your smartphone from anywhere within the sound bar’s Bluetooth range.
Wireless Subwoofer: Deep Bass, Flexible Location
The subwoofer heightens the drama of movies and TV shows by sending the thud of footsteps or the roll of thunder rumbling around the room. Its wireless connectivity and single power cord mean it won’t contribute to unsightly cable nests. As an active subwoofer, it contains its own speaker driver and amplifier, which results in bigger, more room-filling sound than that from a passive model.
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.

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.
