I assume the stores in your area have something like a 30 day return policy? Pick up a set and test it at home, that way you will know if its your source (tv/dvd/whatever) or your phillips system.

Me too, my Philips HTS6600 started mysteriously going silent after a couple years of daily use. Initially turning it off/on gave another day of listening but not anymore. Hate to trash it, must be a simple problem ...

Same problem here.................mine plays DVD's, CD's, Radio, MP3 etc fine, but has lost all sound from the TV ( has been connected via scart lead for 6 - 7 months daily use with no issues till now ). Had the unit at an engineer who says that it's the motherboard and components that's went kaput !!! It's around 3 years old now and If I send it back to Philips it'll probably cost around £150 to repair -I hate to say it, but it looks like it's only fit for the bin now :( :(
