The original cinema experience at home
Technology backgrounder
Philips Immersive Sound HD home theater HTS9520
360Sound brings you an unforgettable home cinema experience. Philips’ brilliant
track record in surround sound delivery is backed by state-of-the-art acoustic
technologies to bring you the top-end of its Immersive Sound home theater range –
and a movie experience that will keep you glued to your seats.
Surround sound from all angles, just like in
the movies
360Sound ensures you get the HD sound experience that is becoming rampantly
available on Blu-ray Discs. Encoded on these discs are 7.1 distinct channels of sound
that can only be enjoyed on the right sound system. Delivering all 7.1 channels with
clear and immersive surround sound, 360Sound transforms movie nights at home
into an out-of-this world experience.

Unique design for unique delivery
360Sound is as unique in its design as it is in its delivery. Decidedly
different from conventional 5.1 home theater speakers which only
have front firing drivers, each 360Sound speaker houses two sidefiring drivers. These two drivers ensure that sound is not simply
sent in a straight line directly at you. Instead, they deliver sound that
curves around to fully envelop you. Each 360Sound home theater
features four such satellite speakers, together with a center speaker,
a subwoofer and a main unit that plays Blu-ray Discs and DVDs.
Satellite speakers – compact yet powerful
Three high-quality drivers sit in each 360Sound satellite speaker –
a front firing driver and two side firing drivers. Within the front
firing driver is a one-inch soft dome tweeter – a high fidelity
element that charts a more stable curve at frequencies as high
as 50kHz, and thereby delivering amazingly clear audio with
more details. Together with the tweeter is a 2.5-inch woofer that
employs the use of a Neodymium magnet. Though small and light,
the Neodymium magnet is distinctively more powerful than
the more commonly-used ferrite magnet. It allows the 360Sound
tweeter to emit high frequencies without any crackling, creating
an incredibly wide dynamic range with the lowest possible
distortion levels.

The two full-range side-firing drivers propel sound around the
listener for an immersive audio experience. Like the front firing
drivers, they are built with outstanding no-compromise quality, and
also feature Neodymium magnets. With all four satellite speakers
housing a total of ten high-performance amplifiers, 360Sound
surpasses the delivery of conventional 5.1 home theatres – which
feature only six amplifiers. In fact, 360Sound delivers no less
than the larger systems – letting you reap the colossal benefits
associated with 7.1 and 9.1 configurations.
Center speaker and subwoofer – completing the equation
Designed and constructed with equally high standards and premium
materials, the center speaker is engineered to deliver an even wider
frequency range of up to 50kHz. By using 2 mid-woofers with a soft
dome tweeter in a Mid woofer-tweeter-Mid woofer configuration
(also known as the D’Appolito configuration), it further enhances
voice reproduction for pristine dialogue Intelligibility.
Philips’ proprietary DoubleBASS technology is applied in the
subwoofer for a lower bass. The algorithm captures sound with
frequencies lower than 30Hz and recreates them within the audible
range of the subwoofer. A 6.5 inch long-throw excursion woofer
puts even more energy and life into the bass by pumping more
air through. The result is bass that is deep and rich, in spite of
the subwoofer’s modest size.

The DNA of 360Sound
Class D digital amplifiers – for high-power performance
Each of 360Sound’s ten amplifiers works at a superb efficiency rate
of up to 95%, optimizing power to deliver incredibly dynamic sound.
The Class D digital amplifiers are also designed such that less heat is
dissipated, resulting in the need of a much smaller heat sink.This in
turn allows the amplifier to remain small and compact without having
to suppress power. Being digital, the amplifiers convert analog signals
into digital ones within the power module to achieve even further
efficiency – and performance with even more energy and power.
Proprietary sound algorithm – putting us above the rest
With a strong legacy and expertise in audio technology research,
it was only natural that Philips developed its own proprietary sound
algorithm. 360Sound uses the principle of dipoles to achieve its
brilliant embracing sound effect. Two amplifiers are used to create
each dipole, which is then post-processed by Philips’ proprietary
sound algorithms. Driving the algorithms is an external 24bit/
192kHz Digital Signal Processor – a superior component usually
used in high-end audiophile equipment, which provides more details
to deliver incredibly natural sound.
