Best Home Theatre: Philips HTS6100 (RRP: $899)
With an RRP of $899, the Philips HTS6100 is ideally priced for Rudd’ed-up audiophiles. This impressive sound-bar system has the added attraction of decent low frequency response from a dedicated subwoofer. It performs well in terms of sound quality and its virtual surround settings are surprisingly convincing.
The HTS6100 will make for an unobtrusive addition to your home theatre, fitting in well with the most recent LCD and plasma panels. The addition of a subwoofer means it isn't as streamlined as other sound-bars, but it does provide a welcome boost to bass response.
