Hi Philips Support,

this forum has a wish list part.

in short:

I was and im a big Matchline CRT TV Fan. Not only duo to the picture quality. It was the SOUND that these TVs offers without the need for additional equipment...

In my living room I still use a 32PW9618. This offers Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound,too. but i dont use this very often...

What i really miss is the sound of the subwoofer and the left & right speakers . The sub is really small (i estimate 16-18cm) but sounds outstanding... great work!

So what i am looking for my next TV (maybe 660x series) is a Philips 2.1 960x Series Sound System like it was built in the Philips 32PW9618...

I would prefer precision silver as colour. No glossy black please.
I need at least 2 digital Audio in ports better 2 coaxial and one optical + 1 analog in
Further a need an 5 band Equalizer like the 32PW9618 offers. the Philips AVR 9900 only offers 2 band.

what i dont need is

- a "on screen menu"
- a built in DVD/bluray
- a separate power supply for the subwoofer. (if possible)

so the engineers can concentrate on the sound quality! (quick response membranes etc.)

Maybe Philips will create a 2 channel Matchline Sound System for all NON cinema fans, who just wants outstanding Stereo sound with the subwoofer that old Matchline Philips CRT TVs from late 90s and early 00 years had.

target price range i would recommend 500-900 EUR.

Best regards
a former matchline fan
