Rated 5 out of 5 by Debs62 It has everything I want!
This unit is great, Radio including DAB, CD, iPod or iPad, Clock alarm what more can you ask for. Sound is great easy to use and even has a remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaroxy Does all it claims to do
Took delivery today - took me 1 hour to set up, very easy.
DAB reception is good & I was able to set all my favourite pre set stations without referring to the instructions. Have played music from my iPhone 4S and old iPad with no trouble and am now playing a CD. Also no trouble setting the clock. The sound is really nice and it looks good and doesn't take up too much room (I have it on a kitchen bench). Sound is so much better than my old DAB radio.
I highly recommend.

Just bought one for conservatory, DAB reception not available in this area, FM very poor, comes with FM aerial but no socket to fix it in, so therefore reception terrible. Will have to return to shop and exchange for radio that works.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Smudgeyellow Nice unit but very poor DAB reception.
Nice unit but very poor DAB reception. keeps skiping which may be due to poor antenna since other DAB radios I have are fine. Will take up with Philli

Rated 4 out of 5 by Treknx01 99% There just a couple of little niggles
I was hesitant when buying this dock as some reviews have reported charging issues, well I took the plunge and was not disappointed, the charging issue is NO where to be seen.
Sound quality is good, quite a bit above most docks, Yes top end docks can and do offer better sound but at HUGE money so an a bang for your buck this dock is great.
Having CD and radio play options is also a plus.
The included remote works well from many angles.
Now the niggles.
The display can NOT be set to display the clock while the unit is in use you can only get it to show briefly by pressing a button then it returns to the play mode, I would prefer to see the time than Ipod/Iphone, I know what device I am listening to but the time is something I can't keep track of as easily.
There is also a good 30-40 second delay in being able to play from a "I" device when turning the unit on, you have to wait for it to "boot" for lack of a better term before your I device will play.
All in all I am very happy with my purchase and the general quality is great, having both Apple connection options in the unit is a big plus as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FormulaLes If it worked properly it would be fantastic
- Digital Radio
- Design Aesthetic
- Original 30 pin iPod / iPhone / iPad dock
- Lighting iPod / iPhone / iPad dock
- With the lighting dock, the iOS device keeps reconnecting and disconnecting, vibrating and making a beep everytime, meaning that you cannot use the speaker system as a charging dock, which was one of the main reasons I bought it. With old iPhones / iPads that use the 30 pin connector, this isn't a problem. It seems a simple firmware update would fix this.
- When I contacted Phillips about the above issue they never responded to my query.

Rated 4 out of 5 by boyne Just what I wanted
Very good as it goes. I hope the iPad dock connection lasts - it does not seem to be very sturdy. It would be good if it were possible to rotate the iPad when docked so that one could watch videos or TV programs in landscape mode. Also, it's a pity that, when in USB mode, the display does not show file names so that a particular piece of music can be selected - not very helpful to be able to select file "001".
