Petaling Jaya (12 March 2014) – WOOX Innovation announced the Malaysian release of the Philips branded world’s first Soundbar with detachable speakers, the Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100, in conjunction with the Harvey Norman IPC Atrium Road Show 2014, here, today.
The multiple award-winning Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100 is the first to feature detachable wireless side speakers that when removed, changes the soundbar from virtual surround sound to 5.1 channel surround sound on demand. The HTL9100 features a wireless subwoofer with the stylish high-end design consumers have come to love and expect from the Fidelio line.
The Philips Fidelio HTL9100 Soundbar is a clever and simple wireless system that provides consumers with the convenience of saving on space in their homes without the hassle of dealing with a mess of wires thereby enjoying a truly cinematic experience in the comfort of one’s own home.
According to the WOOX Innovations Malaysia, Business Leader, Mr. Andrew Tan, the Philips Fidelio SoundBar HTL9100 is the first of its kind to feature wireless detachable speakers that automatically changes the soundbar from Virtual Surround Sound to 5.1 Channel Surround Sound on Demand when the speakers are removed from the main console.
“Soundbars are simply speakers in a bar that save space and boost TV sound. Many come with subwoofers and a growing number are Bluetooth-enabled but the sound quality tends to be lacking. The Philips Fidelio HTL9100 is different as it delivers convincing 5.1 Channel surround sound,” Mr. Tan explained.
The Philips Fidelio SoundBar HTL9100 was awarded the Home Theater Innovation 2013-2014 Award by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) in 2013.
“New homes in Malaysia, especially condominiums and apartments seem to be getting smaller and space is at a premium. A full surround home theatre system simply takes up too much space and is not practical for high-rise dwellers. We have received many requests for the Philips Fidelio HTL9100 from Malaysian consumers and are confident of its appeal to discerning audiophiles who are faced with space and budgetary constraints,” said Mr. Tan.
“We understand that with rising prices, consumers are looking for innovative, space-saving, design driven solutions to suit their lives and lifestyles. This is why we have various introductory offers that will offer even more value,” Mr. Tan said.
Only at Harvey Norman outlets, every unit of HTL9100 purchased during the IPC Atrium Roadshow from March 12 – 16 will entitle the buyer to purchase the Philips HMP8100, a media player at only RM99, instead of the usual price of RM699, as well as receive a RM200 discount voucher.
The RM200 discount voucher can be used for the purchase of the HTL9100 Soundbar. Any purchase of RM500 and above of Philips Audio products consumers will be entitled to participate in a lucky dip that offer premium prizes.
The Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100 retails for RM2,999 and is available at all major retail outlets.
