Philips HTS6600 review

 

Stylish, but can it rival a true multichannel system?

Eye-catching design ; Strong picture

Noisy operation ; Feeble pseudosurround ; Average upscaling

Good video quality and okay audio, but nothing like a real surround sound system

Compact design, ease of use, impressive image quality

Restricted surround performance, only 1080i upscaling

Philips HTS6600

 

Inability to automatically compensate for differences in sound between vocal and instrmental effects, one was always louder than the other. which meant the need for manually compensating by remote.
