The Philips HTS9140 Sound bar comes in a big box, which causes you wonder however big it actually is. But at one time the boxing comes off, you will see that the contents are rather sleek.
The player is long on a black and silver coating and the woofer is alike whatsoever other; boxlike and black.
Open up the accessories box and you'll just about certainly be stormed to find very some cables. A wall mount has as well been allowed, but you will be able to as well place the Sound bar on a flat surface, though it does appear a bit wobbly this way.
There are quite an few inputs allowed for right by the standard part and complex video to HDMI and a 3.5 mm socket. What’s actually avid is the Ethernet and Wi-Fi port. You will be able to stream films, music and pics off the online using a WLAN USB adapter which they have not enclosed. Philips commends the WUB1110 Wi-Fi USB adapter.
The Ethernet port could in reality be accustomed browse files by your personal computer or laptop computer. Naturally, Philips has as well thrown in an FM radio receiver with a cabled antenna.
The Sound bar has a high-powered USB port which you will be able to even bond your extraneous fixed disk to. I examined it out and played a film and music from an external drive, and it replayed pretty swimmingly.
Another convenient input is the one as an iPod bob, as you will be able to use the Soundbar to control and pilot through with your iPod or iPhone. The alone drawback (which is a bad one) is the reality that you require a exceptional iPod dock and cable to go by with it. Philips has commended their own DCK3060. I feel they had better have even as superior adjustments to connect an iPod or iPhone thru USB, saving you the afflict of being forced to buy a separate device all in all.
The buttons on the crest of the player are touch sensible, but could take a couple of tries to get accustomed your touch. At the front, below the buttons is the light-emitting diode user interface, which is basal. The allowed for remote is a bit large and looks alike you will be able to eat a meal off them, merely the buttons are quite spacy and will fit rather well in your hand referable its elliptic shape.
