Philips has announced its expanded home theater lineup for 2009, with the HTS8160B Soundbar. The compact home theater setup includes a Blu-ray disc player with DVD and CD playback support, built-in speakers and a separate subwoofer.
The soundbar also supports Dolby True HD audio format and 7.1 channel surround sound. You’ll also get an iPod/iPhone dock and a touchscreen remote control. It will cost you around $1,500 and is currently available in Singapore. We don’t know if or when it will hit North America.
