Enjoy PC audio with the quality of a home audio system
Philips has used over 75 years experience at the leading edge of audio to create PC audio products with the same performance as our award-winning home audio systems.
Over 75 years of audio experience
Philips invented the CD, lead the team that wrote the USB audio specification and has produced millions of audio systems, home cinema sets and TV's over many decades. As a leader in audio innovation, you can trust Philips to make PC sound systems of the highest sound quality.
32-bit floating point DSP engine
A software engine that can losslessly process 24 bit sound to add DSP effects without reverting back to 16 bit resolution
Digital sound delivers a clean signal for perfect quality
Audio is transferred as a digital signal and only at the last minute is it converted to an analog signal. This reduces the amount of interference on the signal and results in playback that is true to the original recording.
Compatible with music, games, film & internet audio sources
All types of music, games, films and internet audio sources can be played, so no matter what you want to hear, we make your multimedia experiences sound more involving than ever.
EAX2.0 and A3D 1.0 support
PC games often contain 3D sound that is positioned in space using various standards. EAX and A3D are so called API's that translate the sounds used in a game into 3 dimensional sounds to ensure an immersive gaming experience
Adds DSP effects to external sources
Enables use of the soundcard functionality for external sources such as TV's or hi-fi systems and turns e.g. a normal TV programme into an enveloping 5.1 channel surround experience
24 bit / 96 kHz recording and playback
24 bit files have a higher resolution and can more accurately define a track than conventional 16 bit technology. Using a true 24 bit playback and recording path, the PC can be turned into a high end home entertainment centre.
Easy-to-use Sound Agent 2 optimizes the audio experience
Sound Agent 2 is intelligent software that comes with a fun and easy-to-use graphical interface. It takes the confusion out of PC audio by automatically optimizing sounds for all popular formats. Sound Agent 2 makes it easy to fine-tune any audio performance to suit your personal musical taste.
96kHz/24bit audio DAC delivers high-quality audio
96KHz sampling enables you to have an accurate representation of the original sound curves. Together with a 24-bit resolution, more information is captured from the original analogue sound wave form, giving a much richer audio reproduction.
QMSS transforms stereo to convincing multi-channel surround
QMSS turns all stereo sources to convincing multi-channel surround, meaning that all games, music and movies can be heard in multi-channel surround sound, and not just in regular stereo.
Adds dynamics back to MP3's that were lost during ripping
When CD's are ripped to MP3, some of the dynamics are lost due to compression. MP3 Energy Boost dynamically analyses MP3 and WMA files and adds frequencies that were lost during compression. The result is more defined and realistic MP3's that are closer to the original CD track.
5.1 channel sound for Dolby Digital® and EAX® reproduction
5.1 channel sound for reproduction of Dolby Digital® and EAX® sound sources
Reliable audio via a SPDIF coaxial connector
An SPDIF coaxial cable is a highly reliable way of connecting digital audio.
