Notes This is the bigger brother of the B5x63A. This one is of the true bi-ampli kind and features seperate bass and treble amplification. A lot of Philips' radio's carried the bi-ampli sign without realy being worth it because of the absence of this seperate bass and treble amplification, in this case the bi-ampli sign was no more than a marketing trick to suggest better sound performance. The sound of this set is very good with a thick bass.
