Philips HTS 5550 detailed review

The first sight of Philips Home Theatre HTS 5550 will keep your attention arrested for quite a while. Unboxing took more than three people to segregate the satellite speakers and the towers. The glossy black colour combination is followed throughout. The player occupies a considerable footprint and has a glossy front panel surrounded by a metal body. There are a few touch sensitive controls on the sawed off top edge. 

The 3D angled speakers are aesthetically pleasing. The angled drivers deliver sound not only towards the front but also to the sides, creating a wider sweet spot so you can enjoy more immersive and cinematic surround sound.

Dolby Digital and 5-channel stereo mode sounded wonderful while watching movies and it was very responsive to the low frequencies. The night mode dynamically controls sound suitable for watching movies at night. You can also sync your audio with video in case they are not in sync by adding or subtracting a delay.

HTS 5550 supports limited video formats. User interface could have certainly been spruced up.

At `26,990 we felt that it is pricey for a DVD and full HD home theatre system. Experience is wonderful no doubt, but when buying at that price you should rather invest in a home theatre that supports Blu ray format. like the Philips HTS3560.
