5.1.2 Multi-channel for true immersive 3D cinematic sound

5.1.2 Multi-channel for true immersive 3D cinematic sound

Philips Fidelio B8 is a 5.1.2 multichannel soundbar with a total of 18 speakers (10 highly sensitive racetrack drivers and 8 soft dome tweeters), delivering immersive sound with a sleek form factor. In addition to traditional 5.1, two additional patented up-firing speakers (each comprising 2 racetrack drivers and 3 tweeters) are engineered to beam sound towards the ceiling, bringing the height dimension to the sound experience. By incorporating Dolby Atmos® and Philips proprietary Ambisound technology, B8 delivers an incredibly realistic 3D scoundscape.

Dolby Atmos® delivers a new sense of overhead dimension

Dolby Atmos® delivers a new sense of overhead dimension

Dolby Atmos® adds the dimension of overhead sound - a new sensation of height that puts you in the middle of the action. The full 3D audio atmosphere realistically positions objects moving right above you, rendering everything from quiet conversations to whirlwind action with astonishing clarity, richness and depth. It all comes together as a truly exciting home cinema sound experience, triggering your senses to immerse you deeper in the action than ever before.

Ambisound technology for wide surround sound experience

Ambisound technology for wide surround sound experience

Philips proprietary Ambisound technology delivers embracing multi-channel surround sound, producing an incredibly sound stage. This is 5.1 sound without the constraining requirements of positioning, room size and complicated setup - and without the clutter of multiple speakers and cables around the room. Ambisound enables panoramic 5.1 sound from a single, slim soundbar by combining three key factors - psychoacoustics, array processing and precisely-angled driver positioning.

Dedicated centre channel provides true voice clarity

Dedicated centre channel provides true voice clarity

For most soundbars, the centre channel is down-mixed into 2.1 channel. Therefore, voices are not very clear. Philips Fidelio B8 uses two dedicated drivers to create its centre channel - with its own amplifier and carrying a different processed sound signal, to provide enhanced vocal precision for crystal clear conversations in movies, TV programmes and news.

Premium soft dome tweeters for crystal clear high pitches

Premium soft dome tweeters for crystal clear high pitches

Premium soft dome tweeters provide ultra clear, distortion-free high frequency sound. Producing pure high pitches with wider dispersion, Philips Fidelio B8's twin side tweeters are angled at 45 degrees to send sound sideways, enlarging the soundstage of high frequencies. With the combination of front positioned drivers, angled tweeters and Ambisound, B8 delivers vast, wide sound effects.

Sleek and premium design blends seamlessly with any TV

Sleek and premium design blends seamlessly with any TV

With a sleek, elegant form factor and premium materials and finishing, Philips Fidelio B8 is streamlined to fit easily into any home cinema environment. Built using authentic materials, the body is formed with a custom one-piece top and front metal grill and diamond-cut aluminium keys for a sense of seamless unity. Only 52mm thick, the soundbar slides easily under TV screens, and is designed to blend stylishly and universally with entertainment systems and living rooms.

HDMI 4K2K pass-through for ultra HD content enjoyment

HDMI 4K2K pass-through for ultra HD content enjoyment

HDMI 4K2K incorporates the HDMI 1.4 standard. This adds support for ultra-high definition (UHD) video content. Presently this refers to 4K, which at its largest is 4096 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high or four times the size of a standard 1080p HD display. The term covers a slightly lower 4K resolution of 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high. Both formats are supported through HDMI 1.4. 4K displays put high-end home theater systems in the same sphere used in many commercial movie theaters. To make the speakers future resistant, this standard has been integrated for the growth of 4K TV.

One-Touch with NFC-enabled smartphones for Bluetooth pairing

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.

220W Powerful wireless subwoofer for deep and thumping bass

Philips Fidelio B8 incorporates a powerful 220W wireless subwoofer, carrying an 8-inch downfiring driver to deliver deep, thumping bass. Its dome shaped base reflector not only prevents damping effects when the subwoofer is on a carpet, it also strengthens and enhances bass by radiating low frequency sound waves smoothly in 360 degrees. Feel deep bass spread evenly all around you, no matter where you position the wireless sub in your room.

Dolby Surround creates 3D sound from channel base content

Dolby Surround upmixer brings new life to traditional channel-based surround soundtracks by upmixing native 2.0, 5.1, and 7.1 content to Dolby Atmos® experience. Unlike previous wideband upmixing technologies which operate in time domain, Dolby Surround upmixer operating in frequency domain, individually steers frequency bands, producing surround sound with precisely located audio elements and a spacious ambience. So, you can always enjoy an immersive 3D listening experience even without Dolby Atmos® soundtrack.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS for high fidelity surround sound

Go digital and get the most out of your music and movies. Dolby TrueHD and DTS Digital Surround deliver the finest superb sound, virtually indistinguishable from the studio master. Hear sound the way the movie's sound engineers intended you to. Dolby TrueHD and DTS Digital Surround enhance entertainment for incredible home cinema sound.

Connect to HDMI x2 for best Atmos® experience

HDMI connections are essential to get the most out of your Dolby Atmos® experience and TV picture quality. Philips Fidelio B8 features two HDMI inputs, allowing you to connect video sources like Blu-ray players and games consoles directly to the soundbar. The B8 connects to your TV through a single HDMI ARC output to provide greater simplicity and ease of use.
