What a piece of rubbish. It wont obey the remote, and just does what it feels like. Been back to be repaired twice - never properly fixed. Contacted Philips, they wouldn't honour the warranty. No wonder their market share is close to zero. Will never ever buy another Philips product, but will tell anyone who will listen to avoid avoid avoid… Read Full Review

So, get on to the Office of Consumer Affairs. I've had to use both the Telecom Ombudsman and the Finance Ombudsman in the last 6 months, but the outcome is worth the effort when you beat the so-and-so's! Gotta do your homework though!

I have had this system for 3 months now, and have had the issues that others are talking about, but there not issues. All that needs to happen is the Surround button on the remote to be held down to change the Rear receiver ID Number.
Sound quality is Excelent for the size of the speakers, sound much larger than they actually are. I have another reference HD sound system have compaired it to which are large 1.2 meter tall piano speakers rated at 350watt each. and 12" Sub. The philips almost… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/10/2009

Same issue as other reveiwers in that the rear wireless speakers wouldn't come on when the system started up. Had to reboot woofer speaker and wait 20 minutes. In the end nothing would get them working. I sent it back for this fault and it was replaced. within weeks the same fault occured so I returned it for a refund. Shame there isn't an option to hardwire in the rear speakers or I would have kept it as the sound and picture are very good. Philipns needs to rethink this I feel… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2008

Philips Cineos HTS9800W review - Quality of design and construction is a big problem (system sent back for service twice during warranty period with lists of problems). When returning the system a third time for service (Philips had still failed to fix their annoying "feature" of the system turning itself off by itself), Philips would not honor their warranty even though the auto-turn off issue was reported and unresolved during the 1 year warranty period.
