CES 2013: The Philips HTL5120 sound bar has an integrated subwoofer

1:06 /

The Philips HTL5120 sound bar has a stylish tapered design, and a handful of connectivity options.

Hello tech fans, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013, checking out the Philips HTL5120 sound bar. So I quite like the design of the speaker, I'm told that it's suppose to look like a plane's wing, so it's kinda got this tapering rounded effect on the side. It has an integrated subwoofer, it's 42-inches long and it pumps out 120 watts of sound. For playback, you can connect using USB or you can use Bluetooth to connect something like your iPad or your laptop or maybe your smart phone. When you're hooking it up to your TV however you want to use the two HDMI in-out sockets on the back. Something quite new about this sound bar is that if you change its orientation, so you need it up slightly, then the drives on the inside will mechanically swivel around so you don't lose any sound quality. I like the design, it's not too ostentatious, it just got this black canvass over the front in this little aluminum effect on the front. It's quiet-- quiet a demure sort of style. I quite like the look of it but let me know what you think. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Philips HTL 5120 sound bar.
