Guest's review of Philips FWM589

“DONT BUY ONE OF THESE, GET THE BLACK ONE (FWm587). I...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 04/09/2008

Good Points
Very loud, very smart USB connection to computer, very detailed sound effects, clear sound

Bad Points
When the unit played at half way volume all the speakers do is flutter. They are unbelievable distort!!!! MAJOR manufacturers fault with this stereo, my mates is exactly the same.

General Comments
DONT BUY ONE OF THESE, GET THE BLACK ONE (FWm587). I say this because this version has 280wt speakers which prevents the distort sound

The FWM587 has the same speakers, your getting mixed up..probably the 569..

the speakers are designed for different sound.
if one uses the MAXSOUND function you need to lower the volume on the 589.
you wont get this type of sound from normal systems without spending a lot more.
it's an incredible system if used right.
At mid volume the sound is an earthquake.
audiophiles beware, it's not for you BUT you definitely will go "WOAH!!" i didn't expect that...my clothes are vibrating..
someone on youtube hooked it up to different speakers and was quite shocked at it's power..
i have this in 2020 in mint condition, PC-Linked - it makes shame to a friends higher quality 570W rms Aiwa system.

The FWM589 is up for the 8th wonder in the world.
