Philips launches MCD908 micro DVD entertainment system

Home cinema

Philips has mixed tubes and chips, or rather, analogue and digital, to create the MCD908 DVD entertainment system.

Philips claims that adding analogue tubes makes the system more audiophile-friendly, offering a warmer sound with very low distortion, matching it up with the latest Class ‘D’ digital amplifier for 2x 75 watts RMS. Also features are real wood, three-way speakers with Neodymium Ribbon Tweeters, Silk Dome mid-range tweeters and 5-inch woofers, gold-plated speaker connectors, HDMI output, FM/MW radio with 40 presets and a player that offers output from DVD-Video, DVD+RW, MP3-CD, WMA-CD, Audio CD, CD-R, CD-RW and Picture CD discs.

There is also connectivity for add-on devices, including coax and optical digital outputs, an active sub-woofer point, and SCART, CVBS and S-Video connections. Available now, it sells for around £399.
