A surround sound system is one of the least lounge-friendly bits of tech most of us want. The Philips Fidelio solution is to use rear speakers that can dock into the fronts, meaning you can just pull them out on movie nights.

No need to worry about rear speakers blocking doors, taking up room, or being knocked over by toddlers.

The Philips Fidelio E6 sound is big and expressive, although if you’re coming from using a giant set of 5.1 speakers, you’ll notice the rear speakers sound a little thin and constrained. But then who said this wasn’t a compromise, albeit a clever one?
