75 Years of audio experience
Philips invented the CD, lead the team that wrote the
USB audio specification and has produced millions of
audio systems, home cinema sets and TV's over many
decades. As a leader in audio innovation, you can trust
Philips to make PC sound systems of the highest sound
Coaxial Digital Audio SPDIF
Coaxial digital audio connection.
Digital sound quality
Audio is transferred as a digital signal and only at the
last minute is it converted to an analog signal. This
reduces the amount of interference on the signal and
results in playback that is true to the original recording.
EAX 2.0 and A3D 1.0 support
PC games often contain 3D sound that is positioned in
space using various standards. EAX and A3D are so
called API's that translate the sounds used in a game
into 3 dimensional sound to ensure an immersive
gaming experience.
External source DSP processing
Enables use of the soundcard functionality for external
sources such as TV's or hi-fi systems and turns e.g. a
normal TV programme into an enveloping 5.1 channel
surround experience.
Home audio quality on the PC
Philips has used over 75 years experience at the
leading edge of audio to create PC audio products with
the same performance as our award-winning home
audio systems.
MP3 Energy Boost
When CD's are ripped to MP3, some of the dynamics
are lost due to compression. MP3 Energy Boost
dynamically analyses MP3 and WMA files and adds
frequencies that were lost during compression. The
result: more defined and realistic MP3's that are closer
to the original CD track.
Music, games, films, internet
All types of music, games, films and internet audio
sources can be played, so no matter what you want to
hear, we make your multimedia experiences sound
more involving than ever.
QMSS turns all stereo sources to convincing multichannel surround, meaning that all games, music and
movies can be heard in multi-channel surround sound,
and not just in regular stereo.
