This soundbar has a great potential - excellent sound quality, real surround experience with Dolby support (but no DTS - sorry), many connections including Bluetooth, NFC, ARC HDMI and more old school like Optical or even Cinch jack and 3.5mm stereo mini jack. It's a shame that the real support ended over a year ago and there is no more firmware upgrades. Subwoofer still disconnects itself 2-3 times per week which is annoying, system doesn't remember last settings so after auto or manual power off and power on again I have to find the remote to press SURROUND and AUTO DIM feature again - frustrating. Speaking of Auto-off feature - it cannot be switched off so if I go and make myself a sandwich and a brew, my soundbar is switching itself off and I have to turn it on and change ma favourite settings AGAIN. But as I said - it is still cheap and very nice piece of audio equipment. Comparing to my old well-known brand high end wired 6.1 system, this soundbar is REALLY competitive, which surprised me because I was prepared for some "disappointment" in the name of going wireless and more compact.

Great sound but ...
My use for the soundbar is as a high end PC speaker system. I enjoy listening to quality music whilst working. It is mounted at the back of my desk. I am very happy with the sound quality (I often listen to voice broadcasts/webinars etc and really like the clarity it brings to presentations in general).
HOWEVER, my issue is a design "feature" where the unit turns itself off in standby mode after 15 mins of inactivity - this does not work well with a PC. To be clear - I bought this system to make sound. An inactivity option is great - I like green - but to mandate standby is thoughtless.
This is not a feature highlighted until you read the fine print in the documentation. I bought the unit online and had it shipped - returning it is not a practical option.
Based on comments online - it appears Philips is no longer doing software updates - one might have thought this could easily be fixed ...
So - a 4/10 from me given the application of this system does not serve my needs. It would have been a high rating given everything else.

This product is very muchrecommendable.
I have been using this soundbar for the last week. I have been testing it in its different modes: voice, music, surround and Bluetooth.
Very easy to connect through the supplied optical cable while the sub woofer pairs itself immediately.
