We have recently been able to talk about the new OLED and MiniLED televisions that TP Vision has presented. Features include leading Bowers & Wilkins sound systems, the clearest example being the Philips OLED+937 with a 95W 5.1.2 sound system. However, this launch has also been accompanied by the new range of sound bars from the firmbeing the perfect complement for your smart TVs.
Philips is introducing four new soundbar models, with options ranging from 520W 2.1 systems to the company’s most premium model to date: a bar with a 3.1.2 channel system and 720 W of power. In addition, it has also shown its new Fidelio S1 speaker as a versatile proposal. Under these lines we leave you with all the details.
Four new high-power soundbars
The new Philips proposals adapt to all scenarios, offering four new models with all kinds of connections and technologies. Also, the company adds side-firing tweeters to all of them for the first time on the left and right channels.
The first three models introduced by the company are packed with all sorts of features, including Dolby Atmos support and HDMI eARC connectivity with 4K switching.
Philips’ most premium model, the B8907 bar, features an output power of 720 W and a 3.1.2 channel system. In addition, it is compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS Play-Fi, this latest technology being the reason why the bar can be combined with compatible rear speakers to develop a 5.1.2 system.
On the other hand, the firm has presented its Philips B8507 sound bar, which arrives 600W of power output and also offers support for Dolby Atmos and DTS Play-Fi.
The third of the proposals is the Philips B7807, which has a 3.1 system with a dedicated center channel, additional side tweeters, 8-inch wireless subwoofer, and Dolby Atmos support. In addition, it offers an output power of up to 620 W and it is compatible with Philips Easylink, the firm’s system that allows you to connect to the bar simply and with one click.
Finally, Philips has presented its B7207 sound bar, a model that has 2.1 system and up to 520 W of output power. The bar does not support Atmos, but it does support Dolby Digital and has HDMI ARC support, as well as including additional side tweeters.
A versatile speaker
Added to these four soundbars is a product that has the ability to expand the features of the already launched Philips FB1 bar. We are talking about the Fidelio FS1 loudspeaker, which can be used together with the FW1 subwoofer for use as a 3-way mono speaker, stereo pairing, or even a Dolby Atmos satellite speaker.
This speaker can also work as extended left and right channels when connected to a compatible Philips Ambilight TV.
The speaker features a 1-inch tweeter, top-mounted 2.5-inch angled driver, 3.5-inch woofer with dual passive radiators, and LED lighting for Ambilight.
Combining speakers with the Philips Play-Fi system, it is possible to create up to a 7.2.4 systembeing the FS1 loudspeaker also compatible with this technology.
Price and availability
From TP Vision they have not yet offered details about the starting price or the date on which these sound bars will be available.
The same goes for the Philips Fidelio FS1 speaker, so we will have to wait for the company to rule on the matter.
