Philips HTS2500

 

Resonable sound for the price of the product, the sound is much clearer and definable when playing dvds, it does not sound just as good when you are using it to play the tv/set top box through.

Surprised that even for a product of this price that the available connections between the device and tv are pretty basic, no scart no hdmi.

Quirky setup but excellent value

 

I wouldn't appreciate subtle differences in dynamic sound ranges or bass boosting; getting a powered multiple speaker system was what mattered. And this Philips kit serves that purpose
