Hello Philips my old friend. It’s good to see your products here again. You disappeared without a trace. You left us with some freaky wireless red lightbulbs for the human race.
Philips have returned to N. America with a new range of higher-end audio components in partnership with TPV USA.
One interesting detail about the new Philips soundbar and wireless speaker is that both are DTS Play-Fi Home Theater compatible products straight out of the box.
“We are delighted to bring Philips’ outstanding sound, design and experience back to North American consumers,” said Kevin Brinkman, head of sales and marketing at TPV USA. “Whether you’re an audiophile looking for high-end designs and premium sound, an active consumer looking for comfort and convenience for an on-the-go lifestyle or a movie enthusiast who wants to create theater quality at home, there’s a Philips product for you.”
The new range of Philips products include the following:
