Philips HTL4115B/F7B 2.1-Channel Surround Base with Bluetooth (Refurbished)
The Surround Base is designed to be even more minimalist than a sound bar: its compact frame actually supports the weight of most flat-screen TVs, so you can totally streamline the look of your home entertainment center. What’s more, it uses the HDMI-CEC protocol, which means you can control the Surround Base and other HDMI-CEC devices, including TVs and Blu-ray players, from a single remote.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. Moreover, Bluetooth plays your favorite songs over the system’s speakers, filling the room with richer sound than most smartphones, tablets, or laptops can. 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.
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. Two speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. The subwoofer intensifies the effect by adding rumbly low notes that most TVs’ built-in speakers can’t match. The simple 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.

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.
