  • Summary: I have been using this docking speaker for a few months now and have absolutely loved it... until recently!!! It used to charge my old iPad 1 no problem, but I have since sold that and bought the new iPad and this speaker will no longer charge my iPad! Not only that but I also wanted to use the speaker in the garden over the weekend (as it was a nice day) - it simply would not charge!

Philips DS8550 speaker dock

Dougi76, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this speaker dock for my Ipad 2. It is an attractive unit and the size complements the Ipad, not too big and portable. The Ipad is stable once docked. The sound quality is very good, though the bass might be a bit much for some. I liked the wireless connection via bluetooth, the built in reachargeable battery and the remote control. Its also very easy to set up and use.

Great sound but faulty unit

Peter Ross, Amazon

  • Summary: Love the sound and the features - the bluetooth connectivity is excellent. That said, the unit is supposed to last 5 hours on full charge, mine lasts 45 minutes. Philips c/s were hopeless. The Amazon market trader said I will have to send it back to them, and they'll to send to Philips for repair. Not sure how long that will take and don't want to be without it for weeks. So looks like I'm stuck. Interested to know if anyone else has a similar issue.

Philips DS 8550

15 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Hola, he tenido durante unos dias de prueba estos altavoces, y los he tenido que devolver, el sonido bastante bien, la pontencia tb, y el llevar bateria recargable tb, la lástima es que el bluetooth es muy inestable, perdiendo el enlace con facilidad. Miraré a ver si es problema del modelo que probé o es genérico. una lástima. Lo comentaré en el Corte Ingles que es donde lo vi, y que me den otro, a ver si tiene el mismo problema.
  • Pros: buen sonido, potencia y bat recargable
  • Cons: Conexión bluetooth inestable
