Philips Fidelio Primo DS9000 -


The all-new Fidelio Primo DS9000 is Philip's flagship docking music system. Designed to work with iPods and iPhones, the Fidelio DS9000 combines winning looks and outstanding audio performance in a compact package.

Excellent sound; Classy, simple design; Costs markedly less than the Zeppelin

Fidelio app feels half-hearted; No way to access sound settings without Fidelio app

Philips Fidelio DS9000/10


Philips takes on the mighty B&W Zeppelin.

Peerless sound quality' says the Philips DS9000 product page. Not quite; there is no hiding that this is a device with a price and audio quality aimed squarely at the same audience as the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin. Is the DS9000 a better speaker dock?...

Philips Fidelio DS9000 review


The Philips Fidelio DS9000 audiophile iPod dock is a class act through and through. Featuring a distinctive curvy design and 3.5mm audio output it's certainly high-tech but is it worth the £400 price tag?

Philips DS9000 review


With the introduction of this smart and compact dock from Philips, B&W's mighty Zeppelin finally has some stiff competition

Lovely looks, finish ; punchy, resolute, room-filling sound

Big volumes affect its composure which undermines its USP somewhat

A genuine alternative to a B&W Zeppelin - but you can do better

Philips Fidelio Primo DS9000


The Philips Fidelio Primo iPod dock is a classy looking and sounding unit which, with a little home ingenuity, can rival docks worth twice as much.

Beautiful build ; Powerful sound ; Capable of finesse as well ; One of the loudest docks available ; Deep bass ; On-board Fidelio app

Eraser sold separately ; Bass can be lumpy ; Distorts at high volume

The Philips Fidelio Primo is probably the most "hi-fi" iPod dock you'll find at this price, but unless you're installing this on a desk directly in front of you you're not going to get the best sound. While you could get all MacGyver on the Philips,...

Philips Fidelio DS9000 review


Philips' new Fidelio DS9000 is a high-end iPod dock, and you're left in no doubt where your money went when you struggle to lift it out of the box. Not only does it weigh a reassuring 6.5kg, but it's also curved and smooth, so there's not much to get...

Not quite as beautiful as the B&W Zeppelin, but audio quality is on a par. The only niggle is the lack of a bass control to tame the low frequencies.

Amazing sound quality, even when turned up loud (my neighbours probably hate it, lol)
