Last July 10, I attended Philips' launch of their new range of portable audio products and home cinema systems at Makati Shangri-la Hotel. These products are really impressive as they deliver a new dimension to our viewing and listening experience.
With over a century of rich heritage and expertise in high-end TV and audio technology, the focus on innovation takes on a new dimension with the launch of the Philips 2014 home entertainment and sound collection.
Home Cinematic Experience at its best
Brilliant picture quality
Built with a multi-core Ultra Pixel HD engine that delivers EISA Award-winning picture quality on both native UHD and Full HD content, the new range of Philips TVs deliver astonishing depth and clarity and are the ideal choice for any room in your house.
The unique Ambilight feature virtually expands the TV screen, creating an exceptional and impressively immersive viewing experience by throwing a soft glow of light matching the on-screen colours onto the wall behind the TV. In addition, new apps which are supported in our Ambilight range allow consumers to interact with Ambilight during sport events, continuing the great success story of this light technology and adding a whole new dimension to their TV viewing experience.
From Ambilight to 4K Ultra HD, the latest generation of Philips TVs offer something for everyone. Whether it’s streaming new content, experiencing new worlds, gaming with friends near and far and even bringing generations together to share stories, laughter and memories – Philips TVs are designed to let you enjoy all the good things in life from the comfort of your couch.

For Music on the Go
If you enjoy superior, detailed sound but prefer the convenience of an on-the-go experience, then get ready for the party of a lifetime with the latest range of Philips audio products.
Five-time World’s Best DJ winner, producer and record label owner, Armin van Buuren’s long list of musical accolades has another addition: product designer. The Grammy-nominated artist has collaborated with Philips to create his first ever professional headphones, the A5-PRO and the M1X-DJ System which allows you to mix, play and share the music you love.
The A5-PRO is engineered to meet the highest standards and demands of international DJs and industry pros offering true-to-life sound reproduction that is distortion-free even at high volumes.
Combining the finest materials like durable anodized aluminium, alloy steel finishes and hand-stitched leather for maximum comfort and construction, the A5-PRO is a key feature of the sold-out Armin Only Intense World Tour.
Whether you’re a beginner or professional, the Philips M1X-DJ makes mixing, playing and sharing tracks simple, providing an authentic DJ experience. Combining a sleek design aesthetic and easy-to-use interface with innovative technology, the portable M1X-DJ allows anyone to create incredible sets that will blow your friends away and stream songs through Lightning connector/Bluetooth.
If a heart-thumping beat is what gets you moving at a party, then get ready to be blown away by the Philips range of hi-fi systems - NTRX500 and NTRX700.
The smart and easy-to-use DJ mixing functions turn anyone into the star DJ of the party while the handles and wheels allow for easy transportation to the party venue of choice. 260K LED lights and versatile light effects complete the party atmosphere as you feel the beat coursing through your bones!
Philips really showcased how advanced they are when it comes to TV and audio technology. The products they launched are very promising and definitely, those aren't really cheap. But for the quality that you desire, you would know that these products are definitely worth what you pay for.
I may be often out of the house but the Ambilight and Ultra HD may give me enough reason to stay home more often. Combined with the Blue-ray Home Theater, every single night would be a movie night for me, my family, and friends. I wouldn't mind staying in for a steady movie night than going out to party.
At the event, what I actually enjoyed most was trying out the M1X-DJ System. When I was in Japan, I have tried self-studying mixing music using my Macbook Air and my iPad mini during my free time. It wasn't as easy but it was fun; and I guess with the M1X-DJ, I would enjoy it more. One thing I like about it is that it's very handy. It would just look like I'm carrying a cooler on my way to a house party, but when I flip the top part, I get an instant turntable. I would just plug my iPad in, turn up the volume, and perfect! I'm an instant DJ in the house! I also like the fact that it was designed by Armin Van Buuren, one of my favorite DJs. I got to watch him last March in Kuala Lumpur during the Future Music Festival Asia: A State of Trance 650. He's amazing! I could just imagine how this product would sell simply because it's something he actually designed. I also got to try A5-PRO, their top of the line headphone set, and I wouldn't be surprised why it's even more expensive than the turntable.
Imagine a DJ in corporate attire...tadaaa!:))
