Philips LX3750.00W Home Cinema with Wireless surround speakers

Well looked after Philips home cinema system for sale. The item is in excellent condition, complete with all parts in full working order. There are two minor issues but I would rather be honest. Firstly, the DVD tray sometimes sticks but I only need to tap the front of the tray to get it to open so I expect it just needs some lubricating.
Secondly, there is sometimes interference with the wireless speakers but I have a lot of wireless devices in the same room and apparently this is common for wireless systems.
You plug a transmitter into the main device and there is a second receiver that goes at the back of the room which the rear speakers connect to via wires. Great if you want to avoid running wires across your room.
I am based in the Doncaster area of South Yorkshire and this would need collecting due to the weight. A pic can be seen here:

I am looking for £50 for the unit and for that I will throw in a powered optical to coaxial convertor so, like I used to, you could put your PS3 or other optical device into the coaxial input on the device.
Shipping/Payment:
Collection from my home in Doncaster and cash on collection. No guarantees I'm afraid. It works fine apart from the minor issues mentioned but it is a few years old and sold as seen.

Sorry about that, first time I have posted in the FS/FT area. I see the details have been removed, thanks for that.
The Unit is now in a box I can hardly carry so P+P is not realistic I'm afraid and it would probably cost more than the unit itself. Sorry.

It would cost you £7.92.

Check prices here, don't see why you could hardly carry it, its Home Cinema, unless theres some massive weight gain for giving wireless signal.

Hmmm £50?, If you could upload pictures of the item with your username besides it. Are you willing to post first? http://www.parcel2go.com would be £6.98 + Taxes, Working out to under £10 via DHL.

Bit Rude Mark.

Guys, I would rather the potential buyer saw it in person before buying and the main unit is rather heavy not to mention the speakers. SO I am not going to post it and I am selling it as it is likely to go in the loft and never be seen again so I would rather someone took it off my hands and get some use out of it.
Thanks for the postage tips and prices though.

As for weight, the items alone weigh around 16kg before packaging and they require a big box.

Hey,

It would still cost you 7.92 to post.

Your kinda limiting yourself.

But up to you gl with your sale.

Cheers Adam, I will sleep on it and get it photographed tomorrow as suggested. I have never dealt on here before, does the seller usually organise the courier or the buyer (extra to the selling price?)
I just wanted to see this go to a good home rather than rotting away in a loft, it still is a nice looking unit and beats the black box the wife just persuaded me to buy as a replacement ;-)

Hi, I'm interested and live in Chesterfield area so no probs with fetching it. I've just got a few questions...is each of the wireless speakers run by batteries? Also could the surround sound be used with another dvd player or just the one that it comes with? Because I've just bought a new one. Thanks
#12
The unit requires three plugs; one for the main unit, one for the transmitter and another for the receiver. No batteries involved because the rear speakers are wired into the receiver which you put at the rear of the room. As for inputs, it has digital coaxial in and out as well as optical out and stereo (red and white phono) in. So, it depends on what your DVD has for outputs. If it has optical out you are sorted as I am throwing in an adaptor. If you have coaxial out then equally good and I will throw in a Scart lead and a coaxial lead :-)

Perhaps the manual would help clarify some details, you can find it here;

Nice big pic as well.

According to the manual its not wirless it transmits FM signals.

Well the rear speakers are not connected to the main unit, so that makes it wireless for me. It certainly does not use the wireless technology found in laptops etc. but I never said it did. It simply is a system where you do not have wires trailing across the room from front to back.

I never had any interference with the unit before the 2 DS lites, PSP, PS3, Wii, 2 laptops, 1 netbook and numerous mobile phones were all in the same room!!

"Secondly, there is sometimes interference with the wireless speakers but I have a lot of wireless devices in the same room and apparently this is common for wireless systems."

As you stated, I think the problem maybe a fault with the unit itself as its not wireless its radio signal, so reception I'm guessing would be based on the unit itself, so unless you have a lot of wireless things in your house that use FM/AM adaptors I don't know how you would get interference.

Only thing I can think of.

Maybe, but it is very sporadic, made worse when some of the other devices are on. I read a lot of reviews when I bought the unit and, while they were very positive, they did mention that interference was a problem with all of these systems (except for the few costing a few thousand pounds!). There are four different settings for the wireless system so you can switch to see which channel is best.

Which have you found the best?

How do you change these settings?

There is a sliding switch on the transmitter and the receiver, labelled 1-4. You just need to ensure they match. No idea what number was the best; just trial and error for me but things got worse when I placed the transmitter above the PS3 and the Wii.
Still, I say worse, but most of the time there was no problem and adjusting the transmitter often improved matters. I don't believe it is faulty, just tempramental technology!

I would be using it next to a Wii ( Might be getting rid off) and a PS3, may shift it about though to compensate.

Anyway its up to you.

Ironically, I am wanting rid of my Wii but the wife is quite attached to the Wii Fit board and won't let me :-(

Why are you getting rid?
#22
if this was collected could it be shown working without interference? for example switch off the wii, ds's ps3 etc.

i just read a review:
"The DVD Player is sleak in design and has a digital display which has a mirrored effect on it when turned off. It is also has a solid build and weighs more that your average DVD player. The volume control is situated on the top on the DVD player and its design reminds me off the iPod control, very cool effect. It plays DVD's, VCD's, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW. Also has MP3 playback and plays your audio CD's"

If the volume control is on the dvd play and i replace it with my new one, will the wireless part still work? also if i replaced the dvd player would speakers work the same or would it lose certain aspectS?

It is all boxed up at the moment but I guess I could set it up, not sure how to get it connected to a screen though as the LCD TV is wallmounted and all the wiring is hidden.
Not sure what you mean about the speakers. You can use the sound system simply by playing your own DVD player through it or play DVD's in the system itself. You cannot power the speakers without the DVD unit as it as the amp in there as well.
I cannot guarantee no interference though. As I said, it is hit and miss but seems worse since I got so much wireless stuff in the house. If that is a major concern then perhaps it is not such a good buy for you as it does happen and might just happen when you visit even though it may be perfectly fine in your own home.
