Brilliant!...and apologies for the earlier review.

Summary: My original review described this as 5-star, which it indeed is. I then altered this to say that it was a heap of junk which had packed up, conveniently, just after the warranty expired. Prophetically, I said it was probably only a duff connection which the designers had taken care to ensure couldn't be accessed except by an "authorised agent". The good news is that I was right...it was a duff connection.
Summary: This was a fantastic purchase. It fits my iPad 2, my iPod and my wife's iPhone 4. The sound quality is excellent and is more than capable of outwoofing our old technics stereo system. The Fidelio app works really well and despite the price this was well worth the money. If only the iPad had a side docking station then this could double as a fantastic tv/movie stand as well.
Summary: This was my second attempt to purchase a Philips docking speaker for my new toy - the iPad2, and I'm really pleased with this model. I checked the Philips website, but found their method of describing which of their products was compatible with which iPad was quite difficult to translate. A quick phone call to their (excellent) customer support sorted this out, and resulted in me purchasing this speaker dock. Very simple to use, easy-to-use-docking, and superb sound.
Excerpt: Ein vom Design her sehr gelungene Dockingstation für das iPad und das iPhone. Mit der Holzoptik und der sehr schön geschwungenen Form kommt diese Dockingstation sehr elegant daher und schmückt jedes Wohnzimmer. Das Gerät ist super verarbeitet und ist relativ schwer dabei jedoch nicht zu schwer. Mit der Schwere wird die Wertigkeit des Gerätes betont und sie sorgt dafür, dass auch bei größerer Laustärke das Gerät nicht gleich scheppert.
Pros: Sehr guter Sound bei sehr guter Verarbeitung und einem tollen Design
Cons: Die empfohlene fidelio App ist verbesserungsbedürftig
