Petaling Jaya, March 12, 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.
The Philips Fidelio HTL9100 is the world’s First SoundBar with wireless, detachable speakers.
“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.
A sleek black silver banded cylindrical artifact, the Philips Fidelio HTL9100 is a minimalist masterpiece designed specifically for people who have limited space. The ends can be removed to become wireless rear satellite speakers, communicating with the main unit via 5.8GHz signal to avoid interference from Wi-Fi or Bluetooth signals. They run on rechargeable batteries that last up to 10 hours before returning to the main bar to be recharged.
The exploded configuration of the Fidelio HTL9100 surrounds the listener with two 1-inch tweeters and four 2.5-inch midrange drivers.
The HTL9100 decodes Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks, and switches to a standard 5.1-channel signal once the satellites detach. Impressive audio panning brings movies, gaming, television shows and music to life. This is a highly functional pop-up home theatre system for people with limited space.
Connectivity is a breeze as the satellites plug into the main unit via a proprietary connection supported by magnets.
Aside from the Home Theater Innovation 2013-2014 Award by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) in 2013, at the 2013 What Hifi Awards, the Philips Fidelio range also bagged 3 awards, which included ‘Product of the Year’ in the category of Soundbars for the Philips Fidelio SoundBar HTL9100.
全球首创可分离式无线扬声器Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL 9100
八打灵再也3月14日讯 – WOOX Innovation今天配合于IPC广场举行的Harvey Norman Atrium Roadshow促销会，宣布引进世界首创的Philips具有可分离式无线扬声器飞利浦 Fidelio HTL9100。
屡获奖项的Philips具有可分离式无线扬声器Fidelio HTL9100，是首个具备可卸下扬声器后即可从虚拟环绕音效转换到 5.1 声道随选环绕音效。此扬声器还配备了无线低音扬声器，并拥有消费者非常喜爱并期望 Fidelio 系列提供的时尚高端设计。
Philips Fidelio HTL 9100扬声器是一套集智能与无线技术于一体的音响系统，节省用户屋内的空间以及在没有烦人的线缆干扰下，舒适地享受着有如影院般的音响效果。
据马来西亚WOOX Innovations业务主管陈冠祥表示，Philips Fidelio SoundBar HTL9100是首款具有可分离式的无线扬声器，它可在卸下扬声器后自动从虚拟环绕音效转换到 5.1 声道随选环绕音效。
“条形音响其实是一个节省空间及提高电视声音的扬声器。有越来越多配有低音扬声器的音响系统都配置了蓝牙功能，但往往在音质方面都显得不足。而Philips Fidelio HTL9100与众不同之处就是它提供了优质的5.1环绕声道音质，”陈先生解释道。
Philips Fidelio SoundBar HTL9100无线扬声器在2013年荣获欧洲影音协会（EISA）颁授2013-2014家庭影院创新奖。
“马来西亚的新型屋子，尤其是共管公寓及高级公寓的空间越来越小，一套拥有完整音效的家庭影院可以占据家中很大的空间，而且对于高层楼的住户并不实际。我们获得许多来自大马的消费者对于Philips HTL 9100的需求，同时也有信心引入这款扬声器将获得许多面对空间与预算问题的音响爱好者的注意，”陈先生说道。
现今消费者凡在Harvey Norman分行购买一台HTL 9100扬声器，可以99令吉的优惠价购买一台Philips HMP 8100多媒体播放器（原价699令吉），以及获得一张价值200令吉的现金礼券。
Philips Fidelio Soundbar HTL9100零售价为2999令吉，主要分行均有出售。
贯彻极简主义的Philips Fidelio HTL 9100，配以时尚的墨黑色与银色的圆柱形设计，是专门为空间有限的用户所设的。音响两端可拆下变成无线后置扬声器，并与5.8GHz信号的主机进行衔接，以避免Wi-Fi或蓝牙信号的干扰。充满电之后，可分离式环绕音效扬声器可提供 10 小时的理想音效，并在连接到主装置时自动再次充电。
Philips的Fidelio SoundBarHTL 9100除了在2013-2014年欧洲影音协会（EISA）荣获家庭影院创新奖之外，此产品也在2013年What HiFi奖中囊括3奖，其中包括了“条形音箱类年度最佳产品”。
