Shiny at IFA 2008: Cinema One from Philips

If the thought of shelling out upwards of 500 quid on proper surround sound speakers fills you with dread, Philips might have something for you. This is a miniature home cinema set up designed for those with a small budget, or for people who want decent sound quality for the second TV in their bedroom. Unfortunately, we’re yet to find out the price, since this will make all the difference as to whether it’s the Best Thing Ever or Something Else Entirely.

Things they have confirmed since I’ve shot the video: the DVD player will upscale your DVDs, and the UK launch date has been put back to the beginning of next year.
