    Commenting on the new partnership Martijn Smelt, Chief Marketing Officer for TP Vision said: ‘For far too long, as an industry, we have allowed sound quality to be the poor relation when considering TV performance. A challenge that has been further exaggerated by the outstanding quality of our OLED sets. So, I’m delighted that we have been able to partner with the World’s best audio company Bowers & Wilkins to ensure that in future our Philips High End TV sound will offer a uniquely premium experience’.

    Richard Campbell, Chief Revenue Officer for Bowers and Wilkins said: ‘Our new partnership with TP Vision presents a fantastic opportunity to help redefine the parameters of sound quality & performance on a TV. The superb new line of Philips TVs will introduce our well-known audio performance to a new consumer audience who will be able to enjoy first-hand, the incredible experience only we can provide, ‘Sound by Bowers and Wilkins’.

    So, who’s looking forward to Philips OLED TVs with ambilight and Bowers and Wilkins speakers built-in?
