Excerpt: This is the (slightly) smaller sibling of the Philips DS9000 we tested towards the end of 2010. The DS9 shares many family traits with its brother – and that’s almost without exception a good thing. Power is down, at 2x25W compared with the 2x50W of the larger unit, but there’s still plenty of oomph in this attractive-looking unit. The rest is pretty much the same, though.
Pros: Well built, nicely integrated sound, free app is useful, accepts iPads
Cons: Lacks the ultimate clarity of the best, bass loses control a little at very high volume
