"An ingenious soundbar that delivers an exciting, immersive surround sound performance." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £550.

Soundbar or surround sound - the choice is yours

Much more than just a soundbar, the Philips Fidelio B5 is also a wireless surround sound system! To make the transformation, all you need to do is detach the speakers from the ends of the soundbar and place them behind you. With built-in rechargeable batteries that last up to ten hours each, you can easily get a whole evening's surround sound entertainment. Plug them back into the soundbar and within four hours they're fully charged again.

Spatial calibration for the perfect sound
So that you get the clearest surround sound, the Fidelio B5 also features automatic spatial calibration. This adjusts the sound to suit the positioning of the rear speakers. Simply place the speakers where you want them and let the Fidelio automatically adjust its settings to suit. The result is crystal-clear surround sound.

Three, independent Bluetooth speakers
Switch from movies to music and the Fidelio B5 reveals another stunning feature. Like many soundbars, the B5 lets you connect your smartphone or tablet by Bluetooth, giving you effortless music streaming. Where the B5 goes two better is by using its two detachable rear speakers as separate music speakers! Working completely independently, you can have three separate music zones and, thanks to the ten hour battery life, even take the rear speakers outside.

Premium sound quality
Fitted with soft dome tweeters and separate mid-range units, the Fidelio soundbar offers hi-fi sound quality. With a dedicated subwoofer, both music and moves benefit from a rich, powerful bass response. With built-in Dolby Digital and Pro Logic II decoders, film and TV is delivered in stunning surround sound detail.

Connect all with HDMI
Connect up to your TV via HDMI and, thanks to ARC (Audio Return Channel), you'll only need a single cable to carry sound one way and video the other. Connect your Blu-ray player, games console or set-top TV box via the twin HDMI inputs and you've got yourself the best connectivity going. For other sources, such as CD or DVD players, there are optical and coaxial digital inputs plus one set of RCA phono sockets.

Sophisticated design
Whether the speakers are attached or not, the Fidelio B5 always looks sleek. The teardrop shape makes it unobtrusive when in front of or below your TV, with the aluminium trim giving a luxurious style.

If you can't decide between the convenience of a soundbar and the experience of surround sound, chose both, with the Philips Fidelio B5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY CLEVER AND NO WIRES, NOT FULL SURROUND SOUND I was looking for a home cinema system with no wires as we've got a toddler running about. Seems there are limited options for this other than a few soundbars. A doddle to set up, and just un-dock the end speakers to get "surround sound" . This seems a bit more like stereo to be fair, and a bit too much speech comes out of the end speakers as there's no dedicated centre channel. I considered swapping for the Samsung Atmos Soundbar but seems that there's little ATMOS stuff available over streaming services ( and it's twice the price) . Would I recommend this, yes, as it definitely fulfils a purpose and is dead easy to use. Just don't think it gives the same sound as a full 5.1 system though . guys in the richer sounds Glasgow shop were great as ever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant hybrid system This soundbar is exactly what I was looking for: the perfect compromise between my wife’s desire for a clutter (ie speaker) free living room and mine for a decent 5.1 system. Most of the time the soundbar is in normal stereo mode but for the full surround effect I quickly pop out the two ends and place them to the rear. No setting up or plugging in required! Quick and simple. Sound quality is very good - more than adequate for your average living room. I was concerned at the limited distance between the front speakers but haven’t found it to be a problem. The rears can be a bit too loud at times but they can be manually adjusted so that’s no problem either. Its Bluetooth function is handy too: I use it for my echo dot, which connects automatically as soon as I turn on Bluetooth. A really good product for the money. And great service as always from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Philips B5 Soundbar After waiting to see what came along in the Atmos technpgogy and the revirw on the new Yanaha 2700, it was evident that none of these were suitable for where the soudbar would be situated on the loumnge. The clutter free technology that enables the surround sound is a breath off free air with no wires and the sub requiring just a power source. The overall sound delivers a deep enough expamsive bass and the sourround sound and in soundbar mode delivers good seperation. There are better sounbars for pure music, but in movie mode it is more than satisfying for a non true dedicated system. At the price it was a no brainer for what you getg and Roger in the Leeds branch was more than helpful in the sampling and purchasing. It gets 4 stars overall as a soundbar, but Philips should be applauded with it's suttound sound on demaned, and those satellite speakers thjat also be used seperatly in blutooth mode to play music from your phone,ect.
