Product Views



  • Exceptional sound performance

    Pure digital processing technology for best sound clarity
    Advanced pure digital sound processing technology offers vastly superior sound performance compared to the conventional analog audio processing technology that is found in docking players that use the analog audio output from an iPod/iPhone. By collecting the iPod's/iPhone's digital audio output and employing digital processing at each stage of the circuit, a much higher Signal-to-Noise ratio is produced. The result is unsurpassed sound clarity that is in perfect balance.
  • Optimal acoustic volume to match speakers’ requirements
    Smart sound design brings you the best bass reproduction possible. The acoustic volume allocated to each midrange driver perfectly matches its acoustic requirements. Low tones come out deep and tight – delivering strong and rich bass.
  • Precisely tuned bass pipes for deep, tight bass reproduction
    The generous 2L acoustic volume allocated to each woofer is perfectly aligned with precisely tuned back-firing bass pipes to deliver truly impressive and tight bass performance from such a compact speaker. The result - exceptional realism and immersive listening experience.
  • Shielding technology to block mobile phone interference
  • 30W RMS total output power
  • Chic and classy

    SoundCurve for superb crystal-clear sound
    The carefully designed curved back cover of this Philips docking speaker creates a highly effective acoustic structure for sound reproduction. Its clean curve enforces the rigidity of the speaker cabinet, dramatically reducing internal resonance and eliminating the vibration and distortion of sound. You get to enjoy superb crystal-clear sound in stunning looking speakers.
  • Great look with or without iPod/iPhone docked
    Dock your iPod or iPhone, and the Fidelio docking speaker looks great. Take your device off, and it is still a thing of beauty. Unlike other docking products, this set is designed to look gorgeous whether there is a device docked on it or not. Add a dash of elegance to your shelf or desktop with this head-turner.
  • Advanced intuitive control

    Remote control complements speaker design and finishing
  • Dock any iPod/iPhone/iPad, even in its case
    The smartly designed spring-loaded docking port of this Philips speaker effortlessly accommodates any iPod or iPhone, without special adaptors. What’s more, it works even when most protective cases are on – just dock your iPod or iPhone as it is. Now you can truly have fuss-free enjoyment of your music.
  • Free DockStudio app for internet radio & other cool feature
    The free app adds an array of exclusive cool features to your docking speaker. You can check the weather, tell the time and even use your favorite images as wallpaper. DockStudio also lets you listen to thousands of Internet radio stations worldwide. More updates on skin styles and new functions on the way.

An Elegant Product With Great Sound At a Good Price


The Fidelio is amongst the best if not the best dock that I have owned to use with my iPhone. Its has a good design that looks great in every room and gives out fantastic sound at great volumes - perfect for any party. The clarity of the sound was really unexpected given its size. The price is certainly acceptable with what you get for it but definitely a little over most other docks. My iPhone also fit perfectly on the dock despite its thick casing.

Surprisingly Good Sound


Bought this so I'd have a portable device to use while working in the yard or relaxing on the deck. Was pleasantly surprised at the sound quality. Decent battery life too.

Fidelio does not live up to advertising.


I had researched iPod docking systems and got bored with everything out there. When I saw "phillips" had one a little more expensive but made by a company I like. I bought it. Bad move. The instructions are in several languages, but still don't explain operation. The stand has absolutely no ease of use. I had to change my iPod password 3 times in order to get the fidelio "APP" In other words the fidelio has been a hassle with good sound.

Fantastic sound quality


The sound qualtiy is fantastic, very portable and easy to use

Docking station combination DVD,USB,mp3 and fm+am radio


I think this is one thing I bought that I can give it a A+ it is great it something I use ever day my has a docking station for a ipof am and fm radio USB port mp3 connection and a DVD player it is great I don't know what th model is but I know it's a philis

So disappointed


I was so excited to get this for Christmas. The sound was excellent, but within moments, the device was no longer working. The docking port came loose and I noticed a burnt smell from the adapter (the box was labelled "adpator", so I wasn't too surprized!). I called Philips' customer service line, was given a replacement and a sincere apology, but the product was again defective. No "adpator" problems this time, but the docking port was again loose and the device stopped working within days.

Overall great sound


App is a little "buggy" and Ipad is hard to attach with a case on it. Best for use with naked Ipad or iphone/ipod. Surprisingly good sound quality. Great for an office, kitchen, workroom, teenager room, etc.

Exactly what I expected


This speaker puts out a big sound from a small MP3 player. I received it as a gift but don't own an Iphone. I was at first disappointed until I realized it has a jack to play other devices. I highly recommend this product.
