Product Description

Product Description

Enjoy contemporary style, fantastic sound and fewer wires with the Philips Ultra Slim DVD Home Entertainment System. The receiver uses a transmitter to send sound to the rear surround speakers so you won't have to run wires across the room. The 300 watts of power, single DVD/CD playback, and five 3-way surround sound speakers provide a dynamic and clear listening experience. Features: wOOx subwoofer technology for rumbling bass; 6-channel class D amplifier; Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro-Logic II, MPEG Multichannel, and DTS; 5 full range triple driver satellite speakers; FM/AM digital tuner with 40 presets; virtual surround sound; multi-function remote control; progressive scan video; CD, CD-RW, MP3, (S)VCD, DVD, DVD+RW, and Picture CD (Kodak, JPEG) compatible; parental control; analog and digital audio inputs; analog and digital audio outputs; and S-Video and composite video outputs.

The perfect theater for homes with standard or high-definition televisions, Philips' style-conscious LX3750W consists of a Dolby Digital/DTS-decoding surround sound receiver with an integrated single-disc progressive-scan DVD/CD player, five satellite speakers, and a powered subwoofer. The DVD drive reads DVD, DVD+RW, and VCD, as well as CD, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3 CDs, and JPEG/Kodak Picture CDs.

If you're using (or plan to use) a high-definition or HD-ready TV, you'll appreciate the system's progressive scanning, which is referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image. This feature creates a picture with twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD image, giving you sharper, higher resolution images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The system's 50-watts-per-channel receiver and 50-watt subwoofer deliver a total of 300 watts of home theater power, and the five speakers are acoustically designed to match the receiver's tonal characteristics. The front left, right, and center speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent interference with your TV's image. The tuner offers 40 FM/AM presets.

The receiver features two analog-audio inputs and one analog-audio output, along with two digital-audio inputs (one each coaxial and optical). Three video outputs--composite-, component-, and S-video--accommodate most TVs and monitors.

What's in the Box
DVD/amplifier/processor unit, 6 speakers, requisite cabling, wireless transmitter and receiver (for rear speakers), remote control, remote batteries, FM and AM antennas, warranty information, and user's manual.

I was very excited to use this system. When I recieved it and opened the box I could not wait to install it. Once I installed it and tried it out I could not wait until i sent it back for a refund.
The Wireless system seemed OK except that I continued to get a sharp metallic spiking sound from the surround speakers. When anyone crossed the path of the transmitter the speakers would screech. It was horrible. To make sure that it wasn't just the speakers, I wired them to the receiver and the sound was better.
There is no treble setting either. Most TV shows will have a high treble level and I have no choice but to deal with it. The system is great for watching DVDs but not for watching TV which is probably 95% of the use it gets. I would not buy this. There are better systems out there for the same price.

Verified Purchase
I have had this system for about 2 months now and I am totally satisfied. Very easy to set up right out of the box. All wire ends are color coded as well as speaker inputs so its impossible to screw up. My family room is 14 x 18 and the 300 watts fills it with sound. New DVD's sound especially good. I searched the web for a system with wireless speakers and this was the best system I found. I did not want to run wires around the room for the rear speakers.
The rear speakers do have to be wired together and into the wireless receiving unit. The speakers are narrow and stylish and put out surprising sound for the size. The woofer also puts out good bass for the size. A few small drawbacks - there are no bass or treble controls although the ambient settings do compensate quite well for this. Also my 900 mghz cordless phone will send a crackle through the speakers even when the system is off. This system is on a 866 mghz frequency. My 2.4 ghz cordless is no problem. The progressive DVD player is excellent. I have had a Panasonic and a Cyberhome before this and both had occasional problems with rental DVD's stalling and skipping. This has no such problem. It reads my DVD X Copy discs with no problem and the MP3 player does an excellent job reading CDRW's also. MP3's sound great. If you do not want to run wires all over the place and 300 watts is all you need this is an excellent system for the price. Wattage is an overrated overhyped function of most home theatre sytems anyway. More power does not necessarily mean better sound.

might not be so good for a large space....volume is more limited than wired sets.....the wireless feature has limits that way. If you live in a small urban environment where you shouldn't be blowing your neighbors away anyway, then this is a great system for you.

Pros:
- Slim, cool looking design.
- Fairly easy to set up.
- Fairly easy to use (see DVD Fast-Forward and Rewind below.)
- RF rear speakers reduce wires and work great!

Cons:
- CD player has to load the CD before you push Play. You can sit their waiting for 7 seconds before the CD is Loaded. It doesn't recognize when you push Play while loading.
- DVD sound is kind of weird. The sounds are very loud, then you can't hear what the actors are saying.
This could be a problem with other HTS's, I don't know, but it should have an adjustment for this (it doesn't).
- DVD Fast-Forward and Rewind is weak and difficult to use. Ex. The Fast-Forward button is the same button as the Chapter Forward button. For Fast-Forward, you just hold it down.
Well, it you forget this (as I have) you are suddnely in the next Chapter.
Then the problem is getting back, as I said you have to hold down the Chapter Reverse or Chapter Fast-Forward button down for a second before it kicks in. then you have to do it again to get to the next speed (x2, x4, x8). x8 is the maximum search speed. Which is 3 times too slow.
- No speaker stands. For this price, this is unacceptable.

I would not recommend this system. It's way too expensive for what you get.

My husband and I bought this for our living room and it was a complete disaster. First, we couldn't get it to work with our Tivo and cable system- the sound was distorted. We called the customer help line and after 3 hours- it finally worked... For about a month. Then, the dvd player began to play in black in white- in flashes- then go back to color. This was really frusterating-so we tried to get Philips to fix it, but they won't honor online reciepts for warranty issues. So, we took it to the local authorized repair service who charged us $50.00 to look at it- they determined it would cost $393.00 to fix the dvd player. This has been the worst electronics purchase we have ever made- stay clear of this product. We're going to toss it out and buy something else!
