"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 5 out of 5 by from Great recommendation Smooth full bodied sound. Detachable speakers are great and far neater than permanent speaker set up. Thanks to the store for the recommendation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great soundstage - but for a small room Lovely design and great idea for removeable surround speakers but placed in a large room the front struggled to only just be loud enough for our seating position and when turned up the rear speakers were almost unable to be heard unless held in my hands close by. Think I need to investigate a full home cinema option instead. Probably ok if your room is not too large and you don't expect too much for your money spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! I bought this for my daughter, who had specific requirements for how her sound system should fit into her apartment, and the fIt the bill perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality and it looks good Set up was easy even though I am not the best at that sort of thing. The detachable speakers are a great feature. A really good product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very decent alternative The concept is clever and it works. With a bit of effort. “Surround” only really works when you connect the unit to HDMI, optical and Bluetooth don’t have the same effect. When playing movies the sound is great, crisp and clear with a true surround effect. The same can be said for TV in Voice preset. However, the presets are the trouble. With a previous Phillips model it had lots of presets, the Fidelio has 3, Movie, Voice and Music, the latter can be a troublesome mix. It works with most music genres but some can sound muffled and disjointed. If you would like a slightly above average with a brilliant surround option with no wires this is the unit for you. However, I would wait for it to get closer to the £400 price range to make it a true value for money product. I love mine and I’m keeping it, and my friends love it too but I can’t help think that with a tech so refined in terms of wireless capability it won’t be long before another company makes a cheaper, better balanced, similar product.
