Summary: For a fairly inexpensive docking system, it is simple to use, has good quality and good volume. I am not sure that I would use this as my main sound system, but I use it in my study and have taken it outdoors for barbecues etc and it does a great job.
Summary: After a lot of research into iPod speakers i decided on this purely on the feedback on Amazon. For a smallish speaker this delivers very good quality sound. It's packs a good deal of ooomph, there is no reduction in sound quality when played loud, there is detail in the sound too. I am very happy with this item & for what it is, the price is very good. You will need to download the app to your iPod before it works but that takes moments.
Excerpt: I've been using this little compact little dock mainly as a speaker for my PC for about 6 months now. It sits easily on the desk as it's only 21cm wide, 15cm deep and 13.5 cm high and at the £40 I paid for it (the price for this fluctuates substantially on amazon and tesco direct from £35 - 70) it's an extremely good looking piece of kit in my opinion, even though it's fairly low on features it makes up for it by being simple to use and having a great sound for its size.
I can now dance in the shower, fabulous! My life is complete :)

Excerpt: After a few boring hours of showering in the bathroom, after dropping my shower radio into the bath and unfortunately arranging a radio funeral I went to Tesco to change my showering habits forever. I find that music in the bathroom definitely speeds up my mornings when I’m showering to the rhythm and this Philips DS3020 docking station known as the ‘Fidelo’ looked the perfect thing for me and it went in the trolley.
Summary: Great sound. The iPhone/iPod connector is sturdy. Very good quality overall. The Fidelio application is useful and nice too. I'm using this with an iPod Touch as a our WiFi radio, and since Fidelio app doesn't have a favourites for radio, I prefer to use other apps like TuneIn for this purpose. Battery operation is smooth and battery life is good, although not rechargeable.
Summary: I spent far too long reading reviews for speakers ranged £20 - £100 after my JBL broke after a few years (another reason not to spend a lot in this range). The question I eventually got to was - would I really hear the difference between a phillips for £35 and a Sony for £60? Perhaps, if they were next to each other, but on the assumption that we don't do that at home I went for the cheaper option. It makes sense - the sound is good enough for the money.
Summary: I listened to many different brands and sizes and chose this model because the sound is so full and it is so compact. Then I bought a second one online for the office. As a bonus it also works as a charger stand and an internet radio with the Philips Fidelio app. If it had a graphic equalizer, I would give it 5 stars.
Summary: As someone who is very passionate about music and wants access to my tunes wherever possible I was looking for something small and portable that I could have on my desk at work. The PHILLIPS DS3020/05 Fidelio was my choice. It is stylish and unobtrusive and gives me a handy way to charge my phone and give me access to my all important music. I have to say I was not expecting big things, but the sound that this little thing can deliver is quite astounding!
Summary: Tengo este dock de Philips en casa y lo uso con mi iPhone. Es muy Ãºtil porque antes de dormir siempre pongo el iPhone a cargar y al mismo tiempo escucho mÃºsica. No hace falta ninguna cable o ordenador, simplemente lo enchufo y empieza a cargar. La cualidad del sonido esta muy bien, de hecho nunca pongo el volumen en el mÃ¡ximo porque seria muy alto.
Summary: Vor einiger Zeit habe ich die Möglichkeit bekommen das Philips Fidelio DS3020 Soundsystem mit iPod-/iPhone Dock zu testen. Und was macht man da als Lautsprecher-Junkie ? Man nutzt die Gelegenheit und sagt brav Danke ;) OK, nach dem letzten Test eines Philips Audio Produktes habe ich nicht allzu viel vom DS3020 erwartet, wurde aber letztendlich eines besseren belehrt.
