There’s a superb, lifelike quality to the new Philips OLED+ TVs and not just with the image. The flagship 984 and 934 models (opens in new tab) have exceptional audio quality out of the box, and were engineered with an incredible Bowers & Wilkins package built in.

A showstopping film for Philips, Let The Light In involves an Olympic gymnast showing off the drama of going from pure darkness into vivid, saturated light and colour. And it needed a score to match. So it was in Studio 2 of Abbey Road Studios, where The Beatles famously recorded, that a group of A-list session musicians were assembled. The bespoke composition creates tension and injects drama into the film, adding to the sense of visual contrast.

Market-leading sound

“It’s about letting the music unravel slowly and building this journey,” says co-composer Thomas Balmforth. Fellow co-composer Bob Bradley agrees: “You get goose bumps when you hear the music played in a place like this. We’re making sure the mix is really broad and wanted to show the full spectrum of what the TV has to offer.” 

Joint engineering with Bowers & Wilkins has resulted in market-leading sound from the TV’s built-in speaker enclosure (934 model) and sound system (984 model). Under a cathedral-like ceiling, the orchestra falls silent and you can hear a pin drop. Then the strings and grand piano strike up once again. Up in the mixing studio, each individual instrument is isolated and finely tuned. It’s particularly important for a TV audio package that delivers Dolby Atmos upfiring (934). And these real-life instruments are the ideal companion to superb, lifelike colour as offered by Philips.
