  • Summary: Sounds great!!! But,it doesn't work by airplay occasionally. I play it by cable now. I'm really worried it will break down in the months follow.

Great sound but very unreliable.

  • Summary: The good news is these speakers sound absolutely fantastic. They have crisp clear top end, tight base response and really do create an impression of being surrounded by the sound. From a sound perspective I couldn't fault them. But now for the bad news. They are very very unreliable. The first pair lasted 4 months and then died with a red flashing light. This seems to be a common problem on the Philips support forum.

Great speakers but given up on AirPlay

  • Summary: Firstly the quality of the speakers is excellent and that is why I will keep them.However setting up the airplay is awful and I have given up.The instructions are clear but the thing just does not work and life is just too short.Soooo I have paid over the odds for some good speakers that I just plug my iPod into.

Awesome sound?... shame about the airplay!

  • Summary: UPDATE : I now use the speakers with the line input connected directly to my Apple Express and i seldom loose connection, even when microwave on. (fidelios AirPlay struggled with the microwave! ) To me this suggests strongly its not an issue with AirPlay but the fidelio design itself. I see the price has dropped a lot, a good buy if you don't need to use the Fidelio's dodgy wireless capabilities. .................................................................
