See how you can use the supplied wireless USB transmitter to turn your home into a wireless network
The MX6000i is equipped to access online services directly or to stream digital media like music, pictures, and movies from the hard disk of a networked PC (using the supplied PC Link software). When the system is hooked up to a widescreen TV, you'll enjoy all this multimedia content in the comfort of your living room. Wireless connectivity based on the 802.11b and .11g standards gives you the choice of connecting the MX6000i to cable or DSL broadband services through either a wireless network router or a wired Ethernet connection. Another feature of Philips' Streamium technology is upgradeability. You can upgrade the MX6000i via the Internet, adding new services and features like online games and access to Web-based photo albums, futureproofing the system against obsolescence and changing standards.
The MX6000i's easy-to-navigate menus help keep all your media accessible.
Six integrated 75-watt audio amplifiers drive the stereo speakers, the matching rear speakers, a center speaker, and two subwoofers built into the rear speaker columns. The system's four two-way (three-driver) satellite speakers acoustically match the tonal characteristics of the center speaker. Front left, right, and center speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent any interference with your television image.
The system's Class D digital amplifier takes an analog signal, converts it into a digital signal, and then amplifies it, producing strong, clear sound at high efficiency and with low distortion. Philips's ClearVoice technology ensures accurate dialogue separation in the action scenes of a movie, and you can adjust the speaker settings using the remote to achieve optimum sound immersion and listening enjoyment. The system's tuner offers AM/FM digital tuning with 40 presets (including an autostore facility and RDS display for station name and program type). Eco-power standby mode reduces power consumption to less than one watt.
What's in the Box
DVD receiver system, two front speakers, one center speaker, two surround speakers, two Twin Sub bass pipes, a USB adaptor for PC Link WiFi, an AC power cable, a component-video cable, a composite-video cable, a stereo audio cable, an AM/FM antenna, a remote control, two AA batteries, a user's manual, and a quick-use guide.
Top Customer Reviews
The MX 6000i I received had the following issues:
1) DVD player did not work
2) DVD drawer was stuck open after 3 openings.
4) Phillips support does not recognize the product model number
5) Product has many modes (TV sound, DVD, internet, PC link)
and locks up in these modes requiring a reboot.
6) Reboots are sometimes slow
7) TV sound mode has significant delay from TV picture
8) After some time TV sound mode adds artifacts to the TV sound requiring reboot.
9) Streamed media is jerky.
10) DVD drawers required many pushings of the buttons to open.
11) The pictures of this thing are misleading the tower speakers are really like 10 times the height of the DVD unit.
This one was in my house less than a month when it went to the shop to have the laser replaced. That was after playing less than 10 dvds. After it was repaired, it played 3 dvds before needing to go back into the shop. We are less than two months into having this system in my house and it has needed repairs 3 times. Customer service is less than helpful. They would like me to ship it back to them at MY expense and they will ship me yet another unit.
Philips has no customer service and the products aren't worth the money.
- Great sound
- Lots of functionality
- Good looks
- Being connected: internet radio, automatic firmware upgrades downloaded, online user forum (see below)
- DVD door sticks open, won't read DVDs at all
- If it does read a DVD, it crashes 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through it
- Unable to stream videos from the PC over 1.2 mbps bitrate, meaning you can't stream DVD quality movies at all
- Streaming of content at any bitrate, from PC or web, periodically crashes and requires system reboot (especially annoying when using the internet radio during a dance party...)
- System won't play through multiple discs in sequence nor will it shuffle across discs
- Occasionally system won't play discs at all and needs to be reset (unplug power for 30 seconds, then reconnect holding standby button pushed down)
My unit has been at the authorized service center for 4 months now, waiting for a new motherboard - it is backordered, and Philips will not tell the service center or me how long it will take. I have called Philips several times: each time they promise someone in Consumer Relations will call back, but no-one ever has.
Some of the issues may be solved in future firmware upgrades, but the company doesn't publish what will be included nor when it will be available.
For more information on users' experience with this system, check out the online forum accessible through Philips' website. You'll see the issues I outline above are common to this model - mine is not an isolated case!
On balance, I would have shopped around more before buying. If I could start again, would settle on a more robust pure home theater system together with a dedicated streaming media device.
