Summary: The sound quality from this unit was surprisingly loud; we don't often turn it up past 25%. It's a relatively flat sound, but the bass is decent for its size. Highs are not incredibly crisp, but it's still a great sound for 95% of listeners.
Really good sound quality a little loud & small annoyance

Summary: So the configuration went smoothly for me, but couldn't get sound out of it for a while until I figured out my iPhone remote had the volume all the way up and the unit has volume protection (good) when I turned it down it started.
Summary: Pros -excellent sound, especially for its size -excellent volume--more than enough for a large living room (say 500 sq ft) -seems very durable--thick, rigid case -easy-to-use remote; in addition to volume, on/off and mute you can skip through iTunes or DVD tracks using the remote -airplay connection...
Wonderful sound, great remote control ability. Setup took forever.

Summary: This unit looks sleek and very 21st century. It sounds great too. I was really amazed at what I was hearing from my iPhone over this unit. Subtle notes came through really well and distinguishable. The remote control worked great for the most part. Had some issues here and there with it.

Summary: This was my first speaker with integrated AirPlay, which was exciting. However, I was a bit nervous that Philips manufactured it, because while they apparently market high-end A/V in Europe, they're more of a "value-brand" manufacturer stateside.
Excerpt: Wer für sein Penthouse ein passendes Soundsystem sucht, ist mit dem Philips Fidelio DS8800W gut beraten. Das Entwicklungskonzept des Systems lautete vermutlich: Feinste Kommunikations- und Sound-Technik trifft schickes Designgehäuse.
Pros: Schickes Design, einfache Netzwerkeinbindung, hohe Lautstärke, guter Klang
Summary: Har haft denna i 2 månader nu och är mycket nöjd. I början tyckte jag den inte spelade så bra men det går att justera ljudet med Phillips Iphone app eller med programmet Airfoil till MacBook Pro. Då fick jag ljudet som jag ville.
