Philips HTS 3569/98 home theatre

After a lot of research, I bought Philips HTS 3569/98 home theatre system, a couple of days back. Selecting a good home theater system is not an easy thing with quite an few in market. The searched narrowed down to Sony and Philips due to the lack of other dealers. My requirement was to have an all in one system with decent sound quality in a reasonable price. The other brands like Denon, Yamaha etc who are famous for their HT systems were not there in my consideration mainly due to price. With rooms built without proper acoustics, I don’t think these will make much difference. This particular model comes with wooden speakers which has excellent acoustic property compared to plastic. I seriously don’t know about durability and it is too early to comment on that. The another great feature it has is the USB play back for video, audio and pictures which Sony doesn’t had.  I have a lot of movies in my external HDD and without writing DVD’s I can watch them by just plugging it to the player. This player also supports a wide range of video and audio codecs compared to any other players which makes it a value for money.


1. Good sound quality

2.  Plays back a wide range of file formats.

3. Audio/Video playback support from USB.


1. Awkward browsing.
