“Perfect for the studio as well as home.”

Written on: 24/03/2021 by AaceBradley (7 reviews written)

This philips FWM589 is a great device far better than a normal audio device or a home theater. Gives you perfect bass and sound effect. You can connect multiple device to it as it provides different ports. Perfect for the studio as well as home.

“Only owning it, is understanding it.”

Written on: 10/11/2020 by Lilian3 (1 review written)

- Class D amplification is efficient but means electrical whirring noises. - Noisy when turned on.. whirr click tick clack... - no pure mode, just selections of cheesy equalizer and surround settings. - old WinXP computer for PC link software, difficult for win10..but possible - look of stereo is what? cyberpunk/anime/cheesy/retro/eh? - fake vu meters that bounce around seemly random? mmm.. - awkward shaped air farting blowing ported speakers that look a little stupid. i turned it on, played a CD.. and the earth moved! the vu meters that flash orange.. look fantastic! lol *controlling YouTube on your PC/laptop with your Philips fwm589 remote* The sound is so absolutely amazing, you time warp to a grinning teenager! Its look.. all makes sense after this, it's quite a piece of creative work in the end. it's good points demolishes the bad, the Philips designer has a sense of humor to surprise you. RATING: It is an audio earthquake.

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.

If your looking for more thump in your studio this an awsome system. If you were going to buy an home theatre don't, the Philips FWM589 is much better and cooler. Gameport let's me hook up my xbox to it, PC sync conect my pc to it and my iPod is connected in it's aux port. I've owned 16 different hi-fi system and this definitely the best one out of all. The cD changer is annoying, but that won't bother you after a while.

“I bought this Philips FWM589 hifi for my birthday and...”

Written on: 14/12/2006 by ronny88 (2 reviews written)

I bought this Philips FWM589 hifi for my birthday and it is worth the money. I had been courting the idea for a while and I was finally swayed when a friend bought one and I heard it first hand. However, the first one I bought was a huge disappointment as there was a problem with the amplifier, meaning my friends volume 10 was my 20! However, I am judging on the system that I now have.
Firstly lets summarise the good points. It is, in my opinion, a really great design and the power of 400 watts through 2 channels is very good- the MAX SOUND function is an excellent amplification design which instantly adds bass and a fuller dynamic to the sound. Vol 10 out of 40 is usually quite loud and I usually stick below vol 12 due to the vibration of the whole of my room. The USB PC link is also extremely useful as it allows you to basically play your media centre on your computer through the system. I find the function whereby the track can be changed by the remote extremely useful. so far so good.

On the negative side I do get the feeling that the hifi is reflective of its cheap price in terms of its build quality as it does have quite a flimsy plasticy feel. The speakers are poorly designed in terms of their bass ports which sometimes make a wooshing sound as the air moves out of them- this can spoil certain bassier songs. so much so that I bought a different pair of speakers. Another slight bugbear is the noisiness and slowness of the CD changer- very loud for a new system. The game port, albeit a good theory, does not inspire and the sound through that is no where near as good as through the PC link or auxiliary output.

In summary, although there are bad points to this system, the sheer power is worth the money and the sound quality does verge on excellent most of the time. You get what you pay for- the system is right up my street because I love bass and power in a system so if you're after this in a hifi buy it. Definitely age range of 13-25 I would say is the target audience.
