Bluray soundbar with iPhone dock from Philips
Philips has announced its expanded home theater lineup for 2009, with the HTS8160B Soundbar. The compact home theater setup includes a Blu-ray disc player, which has DVD and CD playback support as well, and built-in speakers, along with a separate subwoofer. It also supports Dolby True HD audio format and 7.1 channel surround sound. The high-end product also sports an iPod/iPhone dock as well as a touchscreen remote control. It costs around $1,500 and is currently available in Singapore. In North America we still don’t know. We are crossing our fingers that it will come soon.
