Philips Fidelio DS3020


Diddy dock done good: the Philips Fidelio range is one of the best iPhone docks series you'll find.

This mid-priced dock isn't particularly loud or bassy, but it sounds great and makes it easy to sync your iPod and play music on the move

Excellent Frequency Range and Quality
