The product was incompatible with the latest iPod product I had bought it for. It sits unused in a cupboard, having being replaced with a much cheaper competitive product

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lundy Very good sound
I think the sound quality is very good. i can sometimes hear a slight fuzzy popping noise so I have to turn it off for a while and it seems to go away for a bit. I think the base is very good. I have two little complaints about it, one being the bluetooth and the other being the aux connectivity. I find the bluetooth dropping out when connected to various different devices and it seems to lag (watching a video on my pc and the sound doesn't match the visual on the screen). The other minor complaint i have is that it is difficult to go from using it with bluetooth to plugging in the aux cable and want to use the aux (all when not wanting to use the remote). I think it is a little glitch. When changing from bluetooth to aux i have to put iphone on the dock to take it out of bluetooth mode then i can connect the aux cable and it will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by delandlel This is a brilliant piece of kit
I was after some wireless speakers so that i could listen to music in another part of the house away from the computer. So settled on the idea of just using my iPad so settled these. They look great and they will connect to my computer via bluetooth and play music from the computer. In addition to this it has a built in battery so when charged it can be taken anywhere. What a cool piece of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nathanien Fantastic sound, stylish and easy to use.
I bought this item after being shown a Bose and the Philips. I am a classical musician and I have to say the sound quality on this docking station was far superior...I think I annoyed everyone in the store by blasting out Wagner on both the Bose system and the Philips. I have to say the Bose was cheaper, but because of the sound quality I bought this one. My only negative comment is that although it is great for charging up my iphone, it will NOT charge the ipad2 (a reason I bought this!) It will however charge the original ipad...a pity I didn't know this at the time, as I got a new ipad2 just after purchasing this item. Bluetooth also is a great bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul30 Great design from Philips
Great sound quality from docking speakers that can accommodate all iThings including iPads at an affordable price. It charges the iPad as well. It works by Bluetooth also, so can carry on surfing the web whilst listening to your tunes. Has a chargeable battery and is easy to carry making it easy to use on the move.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Al46 Good sound for size
I am very pleased with the quality of sound and portability of the philips docking system specially purchased for use with my ipad 2.The bluetooth facility is a great benefit. The only downside is that the ipad does not charge up when docked

Rated 5 out of 5 by Creeative A lot of audio clout for such a compact unit. These shouldn't disappoint.
I've owned these speakers for several months now and they have been everywhere with me. With decent battery life (reduced if you choose to charge your Apple device when docked) the Fidelio is ideal for the beach or if you just want the convenience of not having to plug the speakers in everytime you want to use it.
Impressively, the Bluetooth function works brilliantly and can be set up in seconds.
Most importantly, the sound from these speakers is impressive for such a compact unit. I have owned a b&w Zeppelin mini and the Fidelio is, in my opinion, better (once some adjustment has been made via the Philips app).
I also used these speakers in a garden party recently and people were impressed. Fairly expensive, but well worth the outlay.
