Summary: This dock produces outstanding room filling sound. Looks very modern and sleek. Works well with my iPhone4 and iPAD2. Only drawback is, I need to take my iPAD case off to mount it on the dock. If not for this, I would have given this 5 stars.
Summary: Of course compared to my regular sound 'system' which is just a Yamaha amp with an audio cable for hooking up to my iPod ( Belkin Y Audio Cable (12-Foot) (which cost $3) sounds fantastic. But I do enjoy the iPod docking stations for other rooms.

Summary: Philips is really becoming a leader in iOS speaker docks and this one is a middle-of-the-road model on features. It can be overwhelming to figure out which speaker to get but there's a couple things to note on this one. First, it fits iPads as well as iPhones.
Obsessed With Sound: A Philips DS8530/37 Fidelio Docking Speaker Review

Summary: The Philips DS8530/37 Fidelio Docking Speaker, made in China, comes with a headphone cable & remote. PureDigital sound processing delivers clear and crisp sound while the tuned bass pipes add deep and tight bass reproductions providing exceptional audio quality.
Summary: This Phillips DS8530 Fidelio docking speaker is an excellent product to have for all your iPhones, iPods, iPads etc. It worked straight out of the box without any set up. It does include a remote and since I have this in our exercise room, it is very handy.
Summary: Seems like a minor gripe, but being a tree-hugger I really like to be able to turn off my electronics when I'm not using them. This speaker dock turns off only when the iPad or iPod is removed, so it can't really be used as a place to store the players.
Summary: This device delivers great sounds. It's a bit big but that's the price you have to pay to get good, deep bass. The app they have you install sounds promising but I'm not sure it delivers what it should.
Summary: Now first of all, the title of this review is just my opinion. Many people may judge the sound quality and usefulness of this device much differently. As far as I am concerned, the Philips DS8530 Fidelio is an awesome looking, great sounding speaker dock. I will try to briefly explain.
Summary: The most important thing here, is the sound. I've been listening to it recently on high volume and with some docking speakers you'll get distortion. Not with this Phillips dock! Crystal clear at all volumes with awesome, thumping bass. Not overdone, just perfect.
