"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.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea. Very easy to change from stereo soundbar to virtual surround sound for movie watching. Sound ok in stereo, but very good in surround sound. Obviously you could get better with a dedicated set up, but this was bought for the convenience and so we didn't have wires everywhere. 210W of power is plenty, for the fairly large room that it is in. A couple of problems so far. We have it wall mounted and in the mounting instructions it states that the soundbar should be 16cm below tv. We could only fit it in with a 6cm gap. This makes it very awkward when putting cables in, as the connectors are on the top of the soundbar. Also, the spatial calibration of the rear speakers doesn't appear to work. In conversation with Philips about this at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips Fidelio B5 Sound Bar We bought this product to improve the sound quality of our 52" Panasonic Television, that we also bought from Richer Sounds, and after it was installed by T&T Digital we could not believe how much the sound quality had improved. However, when Ben, the installer, explained that you can take the speakers off each end of the Sound Bar and place them behind you in the room, the all round sound is fantastic.The speakers in modern TVs have greatly improved over the years, but their size greatly limits the quality of sound, but this is completely rectified by the installation of the Fidelio B5. We are extremely pleased with the result and would like to thank the staff at Richer Sounds for their help and advice and also Ben of T&T Digital for installing it so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soundbar review I came in store to fine a 5.1 sound system, and the sales assistant at Leeds, (mickey mj001) pointed me towards a new soundbar that turned in to a 5.1 system. I was shocked this did this and have never seen nothing like it, mickey was really helpful and I bought the item straight away, as did 4 more people instantly when Micky was doing a demo for me. I will be shopping in the store much more after my recent purchase, thanks to how helpful he staff was. Kind regards ryan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product easy to setup, great feature unplugging speakers and using them for surround sound is what sets this apart from other sound bars..... really sounds great and has brilliant base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just want I wanted! This sound bar is really good and the sound is great too. Without spending thousands of pounds of an expensive new system this does the trick for us. Love the separate bass & treble controls and its so easy to set up, we did optical connection. Fab & just what we wanted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply stunning Darren at the Leeds branch, what a legend! After going through four different soundbars this year, I've finally found the one! It certainly isn't cheap but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Belissimo Fidelio The Fidelio B5 is truly ingenious. The sound quality is excellent, I prefer it to the Sonos sound bar because of the sub woofer. Most of the time the rear speakers are docked, giving an excellent wide stereo sound. When watching a film or sport the rear speakers are unleashed, creating a superb surrounded sound experience. The batteries last for hours, much longer than we've ever needed. The ability to use the rear speakers as standalone Bluetooth speakers is good but I would prefer it if they could all play the same source so you could have music in multiple rooms. The price is a premium one but the product lives up to it.
