Philips Fidelio DS8550 review

 

Boasting the same looks as the bigger DS9000 the DS8550 hopes to win you round by offering up a more portable product but still keeping those design cues, what you're left with is all round iPad and iPhone docking goodnes

Quality sound

 

Bought this as I couldn't afford the D9000 and I'm not disappointed. Sure the sound wouldn't be quite the same but it's half the price. Air Play works great with iPad and it DOES charge iPad2 when docked. Not tried it on the internal battery for long...
