Sound Enhancement

Digital Surround Sound - Available on DVD, Laserdisc* and satellite broadcasts. Digital Surround offers the ultimate experience in home theater surround with six discrete channels of digital CD sound. Discrete means that each channel carries its own sound and depending on what happens on screen each speaker plays its own unique role in providing the right sound. Front left, center and right join two surround speakers to reproduce highs, mid and bass frequencies in five full-range channels of surround. Bass rumble, explosions and low frequency effects you feel are delivered through a dedicated sixth, subwoofer channel. Dolby Digital (also known as AC-3 or Dolby 5.1) and MPEG Multichannel delivered the expanded sense of depth, localization and overall realism which was formerly only known from digital surround sound equipped cinemas. DTS - DTS surround sound is a cinema surround sound audio format that offers superior digital audio performance than other available surround sound formats. DTS offer more clarity and definition especially for higher tones. The better sound quality is a direct result of the limited sound compression (3:1 instead of 11:1 for Dolby Digital) and the 20-bit resolution. DTS movie and music software is available on various DVD and CD titles. MPEG MultiChannel Sound - MPEG MultiChannel is an audio coding method for digital multichannel surround sound just as Dolby Digital (AC-3) is. Next to Dolby Digital, MPEG MultiChannel is the alternative coding format for DVD. With MPEG as the (exclusive) audio coding format for multi channel digital TV broadcasting in Europe, the Philips receiver guarantees compatibility for the near future - making its purchase a save investment. 6 Channel input (DTS - DVD Audio prepared) - Six input selectors at the back of the set allow to connect to any type of multichannel decorder. Be it DTS, DVD Audio or Super Audio CD. The 6 Channel input makes your system future proof! 300W surround power output: - The five, 3x60W (left, right, center) and 2x60W (rear), receiver amplifiers deliver 300 Watts of home theater power. The stereo output power of 50W per channel is specified at 6 Ohm, DIN, 1 kHz and 0.7% total harmonic distortion (THD). The amplifiers have been designed with special attention to a short 'rise' and 'fall' time, so characteristic for the frequent and sudden drastic changes in dynamics of movie sound in general. Furthermore, the amplification reserves are designed such that they are more than sufficient to follow sudden needs for more sound pressure. Digital Sound Processing via Tetra CORE - The Philips Tetra Core sound processor is the successor to the DUET Core. The Tetra Core IC decodes Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Prologic surround sound. Its huge processing power of 100 MIPS (million infractions per second) and resolution of 24-bits assures the highest possible accuracy in digital audio processing. The Tetra Core accepts incoming digital signals with sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, 48 and 96 kHz (the latter is used in DVD-Audio). Other characteristics are automatic source detection (Dolby Digital, DTS, MPEG and PCM audio) with smooth (clicking free) switching. Lastly, the Tetra Core carries digital bass cross-over filters (for subwoofer signal) and 4th generation virtualizer algorithms for highly realistic virtual surround sound. Natural Surround - Natural Surround creates a more realistic (natural) surround sound impression by creating phantom speakers in addition to the real speakers. These phantom speakers are created using psycho-acoutical sound encoding algorithms. Natural Surround gives the listener the impression of being surrounded by a 'wall of sound' and thus creates an even higher sense of realism. Natural Surround consists of in fact two features : multifront and multi-rear, which can be activated individually or simultaneously. In case of multi-front, phantom speakers are added to the front speakers. For multi-rear phantom speakers are added to the rear speakers. * Dolby Digital laserdisc use requires optional AC-3 RF demodulator.

'Hall' feature - For use with non-surround sound sources in order to create a cinema effect through normal stereo with rear speaker sound. This 'simulated' surround provides an extra musical ('live') ambience to stereo sound. Screw terminals - For left, right and center speaker connection ensures a loss-less flow of electrical signals from the set to all main loudspeakers. Subwoofer output connection - Affords easy access to greater dimensions in home theater sound with output signals made available for connections to a powered subwoofer.


30 tuner presets with station name display - The available tuner presets can be randomly used to store AM and FM stations (30 in total). Each of the presets can be given a user defined name of up to 8 characters. Giving the preset a name is as easy as 1-2-3 with the menu navigator. (/01 /17) For RDS stations, station name, RDS clock and RDS text information is available. (/00) RDS EON News & Traffic Announcement (TA) Many RDS capable radio stations are of the so called EON (Enhanced Other Network) type. These stations are able to detect news broadcasts and traffic announcements of other stations in the same 'network'. The receiver display indicates when the active station is EON-capable. When 'News' and/or 'Traffic Announcement' are activated by the user, the tuner will automatically switch to the correct station when a news bulletin or traffic announcement is broadcasted. Afterwards the tuner conveniently switches back to the original station. News and TA not only work in tuner mode; when the receiver is set to any of its other sources (e.g. CD, VCR, CDR, etc.) it switches to the tuner whenever there is a news or traffic bulletin. Whatever you're listening to, Philips keeps you informed on the most recent traffic and news affairs! (Note : although all EON station offer TA, News might not be widely available in every country). (/00) Set up Menu Navigator - The menu navigator rotary knob takes away many buttons from the set, thereby reducing complexity and enhancing usability of the set. The menu navigator is a menu-based user interface used for all kinds of initial set-up operations (speaker set-up, tuner installation etc.) Via icons in the display, the system conveniently guides the user to the next step in the receiver set-up. In normal mode, the menu rotary functions as tuner preset dial. Tuner sensitivity adjustment - The tuner sensitivity to pick up radio stations can be set to high and low. In case of low, only the 'strong' stations will be picked up during a search. When even some of the weaker stations are of interest, the 'low' option will pick up every station the tuner can possibly receive. 2 switched mains outlets - Allows to connect 2 other HiFi components. Switching the receiver to standby will automatically switch off the connected set. Standby power <2W - To help save energy consumption, the standby transformer of this set has been designed not to consume more than 2 Watt in standby mode. Scart audio adapter - For easy connection between TV and VCR or DVD. (cable includes 'Cinema Link' connection) (/00)

96kHz capable - DVD Audio offers 96kHz sound quality. As the processor of the receiver (Tetra Core) is capable of handling 96kHz and processing it in 24-bits, a DVD Audio player can be digitally connected to the receiver whilst preserving the sound quality of DVD Audio. At the same time, the digital output will provide a signal that can be recorded on any digital recorder like CDR. Stereo Downmix - The digital output will automatically provide a stereo downmix in case a multichannel signal is detected at any of the digital input connectors. In that way digital audio recordings can be made from movie DVD's (e.g. Live concerts from music DVD's) Night mode - Establishes dynamic range compression of digital sound to reduce the volume differences between the loud and soft passages in source material with digital surround sound where sound level differences can be so dramatic. This feature is especially useful at night when you don't want to disturb the neighbors or wake up the kids! Digitals input and output - 3 digital inputs (2 coax, 1 optical) are foreseen to connect digital sound sources (e.g. DVD player, CD player and Digital TV). A digital output connection (coax) is foreseen to enable digital (CD) recordings from any of the digital inputs. Video Connections - 3 video input connections and 2 outputs (incl. monitor) are foreseen to hook up video sources. As these video inputs switch simultaneously with the audio inputs, correct picture with correct sound is guaranteed. Cinema Link System Control Bus - When connected to a Philips TV with 'Cinema Link' (and even better, in addition a Philips VCR and or DVD player), the combination offers an interesting range of extra user benefits: One Touch Cinema - upon starting your e.g. DVD disc, the complete system will automatically switch to the correct source and sound mode. High Resolution OSD - the onscreen display of the television will feature the 'receiver' menu option. This option can be used for easier receiver set-up and receiver settings. Multiple Languages depending on the languages offered by the TV (likely are Spanisch, French and English) the user can operate the set via the TV menu in his/her native language. TV as Center speaker - allows to get rid of the separate center speaker and use all the speakers and amplifiers in the TV to function as center speaker (most large screen Philips TVs provide over 100W of sound pressure). One Touch End puts your complete home theater system into standby after some exciting hours of cinema enjoyment. 51-key Audio/Video Multi Brand Universal remote control - To operate all main receiver functions and Philips or any other mainstream branded CD player, tape deck, VCR, television and DVD player, or Satellite receiver. The remote will operate your non-Philips equipment by simply entering a code from the instruction manual in the remote control. The remote has a clear ergonomically designed lay-out (see picture)


Harmonized Philips Home Cinema Components Design - The design of this component follows the design language of the Philips Harmonized Home Cinema design. Characteristics of this design language are stylish, simple, capable, powerful and rich. All Philips Home Cinema components and HiFi components will follow this design (e.g. VCR, CD Changer, DVD, etc). Display - Color and graphic/character size are defined such that visibility remains clear even at larger distances. Speaker icons are used to show the actual sound mode. Remote Control - The form of the remote control has proven very successful in usability test. The weight, shape and button follow the book in terms of ergonomic design, thereby offering maximum convenience.
