This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (Subject to availability. Only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it... IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

With Bluetooth connectivity, the Philips HTL1190B frees the music from your smartphone as well as the sound from your TV.

A great boost in sound quality

Compared to the tinny-sounding speakers built into most flatscreen TVs, the Philips HTL1190B will give you a great boost in sound quality. The wide cabinet with stereo speakers and 40 watt amplifier is a substantial improvement on most TVs' built-in systems. Vocals become clearer and more realistic and soundtracks have much more than just a hint of bass.

Spacious sound via Virtual Surround Sound
Virtual Surround Sound gives the impression of an enveloping sound similar to a 5.1 surround sound system. Any high quality stereo signal can be processed, so the surround sound effect will work with music, too.

Connect up your smartphone, tablet or other device via Bluetooth or USB
With an onboard Bluetooth receiver, the HTL1190B is ideally equipped for streaming music from your smartphone or other device. Simply pair the device and stream your stored or streaming music via Bluetooth. Thanks to Bluetooth, this Philips soundbar doesn't just improve your TV's sound, but it makes the most of your music, too. Alternatively, there's also a USB connection that's ideal for connecting a media player.

Extra connectivity
With the choice of digital optical, coaxial and analogue phono inputs at the rear of the unit, the Philips HTL1190B will connect up with just about any TV. There's a choice of optical and coaxial inputs, giving complete compatibility with your TV's digital output. In addition to the digital and analogue AUX inputs at the back for your TV, games console or Blu-ray/DVD, this Philips Soundbar also has a further 3.5mm connection at the side. Simply plug in your MP3 player or other portable device and listen out loud.

For a serious sound boost from both TV and portable music device, the Philips HTL1190B does it all.

PHILIPS HTL1190B is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product was 'entry level' with poor controls. Unfortunately this product failed on a number of aspects. Importantly the sound bar was unable to maintain a signal, which meant the remote control could not control the sound level. I returned the product to your outlet in Tunbridge Wells, who were extremely helpful. They offered to replace it, but I chose instead to upgrade it, (double the initial purchase price). The replacement product is superior in many ways, and yes, I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the sound is better than before. it looks smart, it does what it says it will and it was easy to install because i am a girl and i like easy things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money you cant go wrong really! One minus point is that it could do with a little more bass when using it as a Bluetooth speaker via your phone. other than that, a great improvement over my TV sound and great surround sound mode for Films/TV £60 will get you an excellent t speaker for a smaller room and would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. Seems like an excellent product and good value. Special mention to the staff in my local branch at Croydon who helped me get the right cable to connect my TV.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing sound quality I was disappointed with the sound quality of this unit. I appreciate you get what you pay for but the sound quality was not much better than the tv speakers. Base was particularly poor. Bluetooth and all connections worked ok. Took it back to Richer Sounds were were as ever excellent and I paid a bit more for a better quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value This product was great value and does exactly what it says on the tin..... Only downside it doesn't include cables to connect to tv so you have to take that into account and add this to the overall price
