Even though the era when everyone was looking for the most powerful system, with thousands and thousands of watts is gone, this unit from Phillips comes as an affordable/quality option for those that still honor those days. Do I preffer Philips over Sonos or Bose!? of course not; but, basically, with this package you get Blu-Ray 3D and a powerful surround system for an extremely affordable price, in some cases even 10% of what you pay for the previous mentioned brands.

Recently released without any media buzz, just the occasional press release, this unit came into the market quietly and without a noise. Personally I'm kinda bumped out by the fact that such affordable units don't make a sound in the media, when they could have made a big noise in someone's living room, without breaking the bank.

The unit has been made available for purchase at Amazon on March 25, 2013 and has yet to seen any popularity. No customers review or user experience related yet, so I had to take my research in a whole new place. I went straight to the source and got some insights/test results from Philips.

Pros:
  • DivX Plus HD Certified for high definition DivX playback
  • Built-in Wi-Fi-n
Cons:
  • No wireless speakers
  • No Bluetooth compatibility

First feature we have to address when reviewing such an affordable home theater system is picture and sound quality. The Philips HTS3564/F7 delivers 1000W RMS power via a 5.1 channel home theater audio setup. When it comes to sound quality, this is ensured by Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Essential technologies; if you opt to listen some tracks from your Blu-ray Discs, the sound will be amazing, purely amazing (unbeatable at this price point). Truly high definition sound; everything is delivered by speakers with double basspipes to ensure durability and enhance the lower frequencies, for deeper, richer bass. As for movie watching exeprience, the Philips HTS3564/F7 will offera real Full HD 3D Blu-ray experience. The active 3D feature uses the latest generation of fast switching displays so you can get real life depth in full 1080x1920 HD resolution. If this is your first unit of this kind, movies will never be the same again.

The Philips HTS3564/F7 Philips 3D Blu-Ray 5.1 Home Theatre System is DivX Plus HD certified; this means that you'll be able to enjoy HD videos and movies from the Internet direct to your Philips HDTV or PC. The unit also comes included with a Built-in WiFi-n (offering faster speed), which can highly improve the quality of your wireless link. Another streaming option is the audio in which allows you to enjoy your favorite music directly from your favorite gadgets and devices like your iPod, iPhone, iPad, MP3 player or laptop. You also get a USB port on the front system panel, which allows you to play your tracks directly from a flash drive. Although I would have liked to see a Bluetooth pairing option, I can totally understand the guys from Philips's motives.

The EasyLink feature will let you control multiple devices around your living room, like any type of disc or media players, TV's, and so on, with one remote. This uses HDMI CEC industry-standard protocol to share functionality between devices, so it won't be hard to set everything up and operate it. You also get direct remote access via the shortcut buttons, to Netflix and VUDU.

The Philips HTS3564/F7 home theater system comes with a 1 year warranty directly from the manufacturer; so you can see I had no trouble doing this review open minded. Its modern, minimal design makes it blend in any type of environment. Overall a great unit, I'm highly pleased with its features and performance. Great price-quality ratio, truly recommended.
