Groovy Philips flat micro theater

This system could be a cheap alternative for B&O fans.


Small and flat--that's the way Philips likes it when it comes to its latest micro home theaters.

For those who have lusted after the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 9000, the Philips MCD299 may be your cheap ticket to owning something remotely similar for just $348. Consider that a bargain, too, with a four-disc changer for uninterrupted music and DVD movie playback, groovy motorized sliding door, and Moto Razr-like metallic buttons.

This kit also covers JPEG, MP3, and WMA via CD or USB. Under the hood is a respectable 140-watt digital amplifier driving a pair of flat-panel speakers reinforced by a bass-centric subwoofer. What's not so hot is its onboard DTS decoding omission and a legacy component-video interface for TV output. But for that price, you can't expect everything.
