Our eyes are never happier than when gorging on HDTV. Why then, do most high-def system look past their style sell-by dates? Not this one. Philips’ zesty DVD player’s svelte sides and rounded edges complement its delicious bass and succulent sound. The four wireless towers each have a soft dome tweeter and 2.5in woofer, while the amplifier can blast out a whopping 150-watts. Philips claims the HTS9810 produces as much atmospheric quality as nine speakers, but we’ll settle for giving it a good lick. Yummy.
