Dutch electronics brand Philips is reintroducing a number of products into North American markets in partnership with consumer electronics providers, TPV USA. Among the models available now in both the US and Canada are various over-ear and in-ear headphones, wireless speakers and sound bars for home theater.
“We are delighted to bring Philips’ outstanding sound, design and experience back to North American consumers,” said Kevin Brinkman, head of sales and marketing at TPV USA. “Whether you’re an audiophile looking for high-end designs and premium sound, an active consumer looking for comfort and convenience for an on-the-go lifestyle or a movie enthusiast who wants to create theater quality at home, there’s a Philips product for you.”
The B8905 Soundbar will be available from September for an MSRP of $599.99 USD and $779.99 CAD. Philips claims it can achieve 600W of maximum output power while delivering a “cinematic” 3.1.2 channel soundfield capable of “thunderous effects and crystal-clear dialogue”. Additionally, there are up-firing speakers built in for Dolby Atmos immersive audio, and DTS Play-Fi compatibility for multi-room or surround applications via the Philips Sound or DTS Play-Fi apps.
