If your home musical needs are basically a few lo-fi tracks to play quietly during a cocktail party, this is not the speaker dock for you. However, if you’re passionate about music and your parties don’t suck the Philips Fidelio DS9000 will deliver the audio quality you’re looking for. With PureDigital technology and passive crossover design you won’t lose clarity in your music even when cranking some Sleigh Bells or Kanye. And, if your musical preferences lean towards acts with basslines you can feel in your chest, like the aforementioned Mr. West, the Fidelio DS9000 has got you covered with exceptional tight bass reproduction. One thing that a lot of docking stations get wrong is they don’t allow you to connect an iPod in a case, not a problem with this Philips speaker dock, no time wasted de-casing while your party guests are waiting.
