Expect sonic fireworks from the world’s first IMAX Enhanced soundbar – the Philips Fidelio B97/10.

This product is compatible with DTS Play-Fi. Learn more here.

The soundbar that surrounds you – 7.1.2 channels
Featuring no fewer than ten, separate channels, the Fidelio B97/10 delivers a fully immersive sound. Left, centre and right channels are complimented by side-firing speakers for 5-channel sound. Add detachable rear speakers, a subwoofer and two upward-firing speakers and you have a total of ten channels of cinematic wonder.

The world’s first IMAX Enhanced soundbar
Developed in collaboration with DTS and award-winning Hollywood sound mixers, IMAX Enhanced delivers next level cinema sound. Only the highest quality home cinema equipment meets the standard, with this being the world’s first IMAX Enhanced soundbar. IMAX enhanced content features on HDR streaming and UHD Blu-ray and offers the next step-up in sound from the already impressive DTS:X.

Great sound – from above
Compatible with the revolutionary Dolby Atmos and DTS:X processors, the Philips Fidelio B97/10 offers a truly three-dimensional sound. Thanks to its upward-firing speaker array, this Philips soundbar gives soundtracks another dimension. Just like at Dolby Atmos-equipped cinemas, aircraft flying overhead and falling rain now sounds so true-to-life that it will have you ducking for cover!

Surround on Demand - detachable wireless surround speakers
Submerge your listening senses in superb surround sound whenever you want it. Simply detach the wireless surround speakers from the main speaker unit and place them at the rear of the room to get a multi-channel surround sound experience with your games and movies. When the action is over, reattach the speakers for music and TV shows.

Separate subwoofer
Using a separate subwoofer gives the Fidelio B97/10 the power to do justice to action movies and stadium music. Now you won’t just hear the bass but feel it when the action hots up. Wireless connectivity means the subwoofer doesn’t have to be placed near the soundbar – it can just as easily be placed the other side of the room.

Google Chromecast, AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth, for the complete networking experience
As well as bringing your TV to life, the Fidelio B97/10 also offers a wide range of music streaming options. Built-in Google Chromecast lets you stream Hi-Res Audio music from your chosen device. With Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Amazon Music HD, Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz and many others available, you’ll never be without music. Alternatively, this Philips soundbar is compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth – covering your every streaming music requirement.

DTS Play-Fi for effortless music streaming
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app from the Apple Store (iOS), Google Play (Android), Kindle Fire or for your Windows PC and get started on streaming all your favourite music. You not only get access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon Music and Napster. It’s all here, for near limitless music.

Works with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri voice assistants
Compatible (not built-in) with Amazon and Google voice assistants, the Fidelio B97/10 integrates with your voice-operated household. If you prefer to use the Apple system, AirPlay 2 compatibility facilitates the use of Siri, too.

Full HDMI connectivity
With twin HDMI inputs and an output, the Fidelio B97/10 easily connects to your home entertainment system. Plug in your games console and Blu-ray player and route them through to the Philips for the best sound. The Philips passes through 4K video signals, meaning you don’t have to use separate connections to the TV. Digital optical and analogue 3.5mm inputs for other sources are also included.

Expand your home cinema dimensions, with the Philips Fidelio B97/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phillips B97 / 10 soundbar Styling is top notch, beautiful clean lines, solid feel. Connectivity is plenty, with lots of room to fit your cables cleanly. 2 hdmi in ports and 1 Arc/ eArc connection. 3.5 connector etc. Nice touch with the disconnectable side speakers which double as wireless rear surrounds when neaded. The rear surrounds are a little on the quiet side but not too quite. The sound reproduction is crystal clear on all levels, and Bass speaker is awesome. Dolby atmos and DTS . X are supported with lots of other enhancements on tap Inc Imax . Over all very pleased with the layout, software and sound from this Soundbar. The staff at Richer Sounds (Romford) made the transaction painless, fast and efficient, keeping buyers fully informed of the payment, dispatch and delivery process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phillips B97 sound bar I ordered a Phillips b97 sound bar from richer sounds in guilford in January unfortunately with brexit it took longer than expected but a salesman called Dillon went above and beyond in keeping me up to date with the delevery order outstanding service it was well worth the wait I’m so happy with the product and it goes well with my Phillips ambilight tv and the surround sound is awesome what a great bit of kit if ever I need any speakers or tv I would definitely recommend richer sounds and the great team they have there

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bar has issues this soundbar has serious issues there is a continuous rumble form the sub woofer (similar to an old style hard drive working) which is noticeable when watching quiet broadcasts. there is an ongoing discussion on av forums regarding this issue and Philips aren't accepting there is an issue with the bar a few firmware updates have been made available, but none yet has solved this problem its a real shame as the overall sound is really good with great surround sound implementation using the wireless rears

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait - powerful and defined - premium Having waited for quite a while for this system, I can honestly say it was worth it. Straight out of the box you can feel the premium quality, with a metal mesh cover, finished with polished metal ends. Both the soundbar and detachable rears are seamlessly integrated, and feel solid when connected. When the rears are detached and installed, they look great, and have been well thought through, and add to the overall aesthetics of the system. The included sub is hefty, and in my opinion feels responsive and deep. The rear inputs (HDMI, power, etc) are easily accessible, and I am pleased that I have a spare HDMI port to easily switch my 4k UHD player. The power input is supplied with transformer, so be prepared that you will not be able to use a standard figure of eight cable (which was a little frustrating as I had to open up the wall again!). In terms of sheer power, this system does deliver, and the sound produced is well refined and fully configurable, with which I have enjoyed testing the various settings. I noted that once the initial update has been completed, then you will need to further add the Philips Fine Tune app (additional to the standard app), then from here find another update. Once I had done this the system came alive, especially Dolby Atmos. In terms of Atmos, this has front firing upward speakers, and I did wonder whether the lack of rear upward firing speakers would be an issue. Not so, Atmos is delivered well, although maybe just a little front heavy but the surrounds compliment this well. I have run Atmos via Apple 4k hook up, which has been great, but when I played ‘Blade 4k’ through the UHD player I was blown away – kicking bass, clear vocals, stunning music – yes that was good! The cherry on the top for me is that the system also delivers for music – so I know this is subjective and I am no expert (but I know what like!) but playing both master and Atmos tracks via Tidal was a revelation. I would caveat this that I spent some time with the settings to get the desired sound, having to reduce both bass and sub (these are powerful) and make some fine adjustments. Would add that the ‘Surround AI’ setting for music seems to work the best, delivering a nice overall surround experience. Please note this is just my opinion, and I would urge anyone interested in the B97/10 to research and trial the system where possible before committing fully.
