Excerpt: Fidelio is the name of Beethoven’s only opera and is an apt name for this classy, cultured iPod dock from Philips. Much like an opera singer, the DS9000 is designed to project crystal-clear sound into the room, and to do so it boasts a wealth of interesting features and design concepts.
Excerpt: iPod docks come in all shapes and sizes, most arriving around the £100-150 mark, offering a range of features the most useful of which is the ability to get the tunes off your iPod or iPhone and into your room. Many suffer from the same problem too - sound quality. There are a few exceptions, of course, the B&W Zeppelin being one of them, attacking the "premium" iPod dock with the design and audio quality to justify its price.
Pros: Looks, build, sound quality
Cons: The Philips app knocks out some of the remote control functions, remote isn't the same quality, it's an expensive luxury
