Philips continues to expand their Hue smartbulb line with a series of bulbs that look like vintage Edison-style filament lights. There are numerous LED bulbs with this look these days, but only these ones can be remotely controlled via the Hue app. Available in A19, ST19, and G25 styles.
Philips Hue lights can now be synchronized with the content displayed on your television for the ultimate in immersion. The box connects up to four HDMI devices, and works in concert with your Hue bridge and up to 10 Hue lights to color-coordinate lighting with the images on your TV.
Philips reasonably-priced, open back cans provide an immersive soundfield, and their 50 mm high definition neodymium drivers offer frequency response from 5 – 40,000 Hz with minimal distortion, so you won’t miss the slightest nuance. Plus their velour-covered memory foam cushions mean comfortable listening for hours.
Philips’ Hue Play is an RGB LED accent light that can be used in a variety of ways. You can mount it behind a monitor and use it to enhance what’s on screen. You can also let it stand vertically or horizontally. Drops 10/2018 for $70 for a single bar, or $130 for a 2-pack.
This streamlined home theater sound system uses 18 speakers to provide truly immersive sound, including upward-firing drivers and Dolby Atmos compatibility for 3-dimensional sound effects that bounce off your ceiling. The 400W system includes a 220W wireless sub.
