Having top of the line home cinema is one of my ultimate dreams. I know most of you too. The luxury of watching my favorite movie/show at the comfort of my own home with the best audio/visual quality makes me want to work harder to make this dream a reality the soonest. Well, this may be a dream by now, but, who knows in the next few months or years I can avail of this and need not frequently visit movie houses for quality picture and sound entertainment.
This was the main reason why I was ecstatic to attend the Philips event held at Makati Shangri-la last week since I knew that new range of Philips products will be launched that will live up to my “ideal” home theatre system standard.
