The Soundphere Design Line is the flagship speaker by Philips for the best cinematic experience. It is about creating a timeless solution. Combining sensual design aesthetics, cutting-edge acoustic technology and unprecedented transparent sound, the SoundSphere DesignLine is designed to capture the hearts and minds of audiophiles and home cinema enthusiasts worldwide.
The design inspiration is based on the Philips Fidelio brand principles. It is about premium parts and materials. Authentic wood, real metal. And of course good quality built, and precision in engineering and manufacturing.
The design represents the new interpretation of the audio metaphor, a balance between audio and design, that can endure a long period of time.
Impressively sleek, elegant, and reminiscent of a futuristic architectural structure, the Soundsphere is definitely a statement piece that belongs in any contemporary home. The design has a distinctive ’acorn’ shaped woofer cabinet from which a 1 meter long chrome tube gracefully emerges, bearing the iconic floating tweeter.
