Philips Fidelio B5/12 Soundbar with Surround Speakers
An ingenious soundbar that delivers an exciting, immersive surround sound performance. The Philips Fidelio B5 is a shape-shifter - a soundbar that, thanks to two detachable speakers, can transform itself into a surround sound system, as well as a Bluetooth-powered multiroom system. All this from one package and no extra wires. The B5 is the natural successor to the 2013 award-winning HTL9100, with the multiroom aspect being the biggest update. Much more than just a soundbar, the Philips Fidelio B5 is also a wireless surround sound system. To make the transformation, all you need to do is detach the speakers from the ends of the soundbar and place them behind you. With built-in rechargeable batteries that last up to ten hours each, you can easily get a whole evening's surround sound entertainment. Plug them back into the soundbar and within four hours they're fully charged again. So that you get the clearest surround sound, the Fidelio B5 also features automatic spatial calibration. This adjusts the sound to suit the positioning of the rear speakers. Simply place the speakers where you want them and let the Fidelio automatically adjust its settings to suit. The result is crystal-clear surround sound. Switch from movies to music and the Fidelio B5 reveals another stunning feature. Like many soundbars, the B5 lets you connect your smartphone or tablet by Bluetooth, giving you effortless music streaming. Where the B5 goes two better is by using its two detachable rear speakers as separate music speakers. Working completely independently, you can have three separate music zones and thanks to the ten hour battery life, you can even take the rear speakers outside. Fitted with soft dome tweeters and separate mid-range units, the Fidelio soundbar offers hi-fi sound quality. With a dedicated subwoofer, both music and movies benefit from a rich, powerful bass response.
Surround on demand
Submerge your listening senses in the surround sound whenever you want it. Simply detach the wireless surround speakers from the left and right main speaker units and place them at the rear of the room to get multi-channel surround sound experience with your games and movies.
Pair Bluetooth devices easily with one-touch NFC (Near Field Communications) technology. Just tap the NFC enabled smartphone or tablet on the NFC area of a speaker to turn the speaker on, start Bluetooth pairing and begin streaming music.
In spatial calibration function developed by Philips lab ensures the possible balance of sound, regardless of where in a room rear speakers have been placed. When triggered, this function uses a differently designed tonal signal to locate each of the rear speakers.
Soft Dome Tweeters
With Philips' Crystal Clear Sound, you will be able to discern and appreciate every sound detail, the way it's meant to be heard and as the artist or director intended. Crystal Clear Sound reproduces the sound source - whether it's an action movie, a musical or a live performance - faithfully, precisely and without any distortion.
The Philips Fidelio B5 soundbar creates surround sound using wireless detachable rear speakers and subwoofer.
