I don’t know about you but too me the TechNutty homepage is looking very filled with camera news from the festivities from CES today, that’s why I am pretty excited to be talking about something different to be announced, the Philips Soundbar HTL9100 which includes its own USP that brings detachable speakers to the table allowing the user to convert it from virtual surround to 5.1 surround sound.
Alongside which it is also the first soundbar to carry the Fidelio brand name, with premium sound and a premium design that comes with the rest of the Fidelio products currently available, the entire system is also wireless, dismissing the need for cables trailing across the floor.
The subwoofer uses proprietary wireless technology that means it won’t conflict with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi devices, the detachable speakers are powered via internal batteries that can lat up to ten hours and upon detaching the system will automatically switch to the 5.1 surround sound mode.
And the soundbar even has an orientation sensor onboard to sense how you have positioned the device and adjust sound accordingly, in terms of connections there’s two HDMI ports available and the device includes Bluetooth compatibility.
The Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100 will be available from May 2013, for $799.99.
