Featuring Ambisound, the HTS8100 delivers full multi-channel surround sound in any sort of room. The 1-piece integrated system fits into the home with ease, providing a full home theater experience with excellent sound and picture quality.
Ambisound technology produces truly embracing multi-channel surround sound from fewer speakers. It delivers an immersive 5.1 sound experience without the constraints of sitting position, room shape or size, and without the clutter of multiple speakers and cables. Through the combined effect of psychoacoustic phenomena, array processing and precisely angled driver positioning, Ambisound delivers more sound from fewer speakers.
1080p HDMI upconverts to high definition for sharper images
1080p HDMI upconversion delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution - ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by "p" in "1080p') eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multichannal audio, without conversions to analog - delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.

The feature alleviates jagged edges that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed, especially with moving images - thus delivering natural-looking action scenes. Bring your viewing experience to the next level with clearer smoother pictures
Connect your iPod for audio and video playback
This unique connection allows you to hook up the Philips dock to the home theater system for media playback from your iPod. With Extended User Interface, you can also enjoy the convenience of direct access and viewing of your iPod content on your TV screen.
Enjoy the best possible listening experience without having to make surround setting changes every time you change a disc or switch between movies and music. Unlike normal 5.1 systems that feature default multi-channel surround settings, Smart Surround automatically changes the surround settings to suit your music encoded in stereo or your movie with multi-channel content.
DoubleBASS for an extended, deep bass experience
DoubleBASS ensures you hear even the deepest bass tones from compact-sized subwoofers. It captures low frequencies and recreates them in the audible range of the subwoofer - delivering sound with more boom and panache, and ensuring you a full, uncompromised listening experience.
Soft dome tweeters for pure sound and voice clarity
Soft Dome Tweeters reproduce clear high and mid-range frequencies that enhance the overall clarity of sound from the speakers.
