Philips Fidelio FB1: The compact soundbar with wireless subwoofer appears to be the ideal replacement for the lengthy, clunky soundbars. That takes up space both in the market and in front of our TVs. It is made for small spaces and compact TVs. However, the price is not justified by the sound quality.
Philips Fidelio FB1: Price
A suggested retail price of €799.99 will be charged for the Philips Fidelio FB1 soundbar starting in May 2022.
When it comes to the design of the B1, Philips is off to a strong start. Therefore the primary unit is well-made and covered in a metal grille that gives it a classy appearance.
There are 15 speakers included in the soundbar itself. So, to reduce crosstalk. The Fidelio FB1 soundbar is separated into LCR parts inside the enclosure. This guarantees that the text that has been duplicated is clear. A tweeter with a D’Appolito arrangement. Also, two mid-range drivers placed on either side are present in each LCR channel.
Considering its small size, the B1 produces an unexpectedly wide sound field. In addition to the two drivers in the center, there are two drivers on each side of the main bar. A 5.1 amplifier powers six channels and Philips uses “microbeam” technology to create that wide arc of sound.
Thanks to the compact unit’s respectably loud volume and expansive soundstage. You’ll feel immediately dip in the movie you’re watching. In addition, a good deal of detail is included.
To reduce crosstalk and guarantee clear communication. The LCR parts of the soundbar are separated into separate housings. To better integrate the mid and high frequencies.
Each LCR channel has two midrange speakers. Which are placed on either side of a tweeter in a D’Appolito configuration. Additionally, two side-firing drivers are installed, one at each end of the beam providing a surround sound effect.
Two Dolby Atmos elevation drivers are positioned on top of the beam on either side of a bass folded designed to house two subwoofers giving further expansion. A Muirhead leather wrap around the soundbar’s beveled edge.
An acoustically transparent metal mesh contributes to the renowned high-end appearance of the Philips Fidelio line.
The cabinet and top control panel of the FB1 are accented with Scottish Muirhead leather. Also, have a beautiful metal mesh grill. A front LED display responds to remote control instructions. With visible feedback for input switching, volume control, and processing mode selection.
