Simultaneously Plays Music and Charges

The Philips docking system lets you connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad so you can wake up to your favorite music with full, clear sound. This system also automatically charges your device while it's docked--even with a case on--so you won't have to worry about running out of battery power.

Digital FM Tuner for Your Favorite Broadcasts

You can easily tune in to FM radio to get your morning news, traffic reports, or other live broadcasts. Presets let you store and access your favorite stations.

Dynamic Bass Boost Delivers Rich, Clear Sound

This system packs 10 watts RMS total output power. Dynamic Bass Boost (DBB) maximizes your music enjoyment by enhancing the low end no matter the volume setting. This is similar to "loudness" features on other systems, and allows you to get consistent, full-range sound even at low levels. Philips also lets you dial it in with preset EQ curves for different musical styles (jazz, rock, pop, and classical) so you can get the most out of your music.

Dual Alarm Clock Settings for Weekdays and Weekends

A dual alarm feature lets you set different alarm times for weekdays and weekends or vary the alarm settings for you and a companion.

You can wake to an FM radio station or to your favorite tunes on a docked device. A gentle wake feature gradually increases volume to wake you without jarring you out of sleep.

Auxiliary Input Lets You Connect an MP3 Player

The system's 3.5-millimeter jack lets you plug in MP3 players, CD players, or anything else with a line out. So if you have devices other than an iPod or iPhone, like a non-docking iPod shuffle, you can still enjoy your music over the system's speaker.

Compatibility Information

The Philips docking system is compatible with iPod touch 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation; iPod nano 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th generation; iPod 5th generation; iPod classic; iPod mini; iPhone; iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4s; iPad and iPad 2.

Product and Warranty Information

The docking system comes with a remote control that includes all functions. The unit measures 4.48 by 10.35 by 6.5 inches (H x W x D).

The Philips docking system is covered by a limited one-year warranty.

Highly recommend--nice appearance, very good quality product and great sound for a smaller system.
M. Leach
It does have some problems that make it difficult to like -- mostly it was not as user friendly as I expect things to be.
LookinG for Trouble
Even the brightness can be adjusted from the remote, including shutting off the clock display altogether.

I was looking around for something to replace my "Moshi" talking alarm clock. I wanted something with a nice display, and realized that I had all these nice clock apps on my iPads (both 1st and 2nd gen for my son and I). So I started looking for better options that could use my iPad. Found several, but most were ones that held it from all sides, so would be impossible, problematic, or just loose with the newer generation of iPads. I didn't need rotation - I have no need to have it displayed in landscape, so finally found this one here. Nowhere mentioned specifically iPad 2 compatibility, but after some google searches, found a webpage at one of the main electronic brick and mortars, which DID list the compatibility. So I found one locally, picked it up at their store, and brought it home.

Unpacking was easy, 2 AA batteries for the power loss backup. Getting it set up took about 2 minutes, including setting both my alarms, one for when I need to get up at my time, one for when I have to get up at my son's time. It supports 12 or 24 hour format display. Easy to see what alarm is on, time, and setting. So for a standalone alarm clock, it was very quick and easy to set up. And all of it can be done either on the unit or on the remote. Even the brightness can be adjusted from the remote, including shutting off the clock display altogether.

Then came the fun, and I plugged my iPad 2 on top of it. Instantly was charging. Changed the input to the iPad, and bang, there's my music. And I almost soiled myself at the volume levels and bass this unit puts out. I guess I'm so used to the tinny sounds from the iPhones and iPads, that while I was expecting more out of the dock, I didn't expect THIS much. Outstanding sound, 5 equalizer presets, fantastic bass response.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Philips DC291 has an impressive list of features that had me quite interested. Having iPhones, iPods, and an iPad 2, the compatibility with Apple products was a major draw. Overall I was pleased with how these features worked. There are some flaws (which I will detail below) but for the relatively low price, I'm willing to forgive these failings.

Handsome alarm clock is sleek and modern looking.
Sound is very good and very loud for the size.
The included remote control works well for basic navigation of your playlist.
Time is automatically set when your iPhone/iPad/whatever is plugged into it.

The numbers in the time display on the LCD screen are too small (< 1 inch tall).
The viewing angle of the LCD display is really bad.
iPhone 4 will not dock with Apple Bumper installed.
iPhone 4 gives sporadic error messages when docked.

iPhone 4
The first device that I tried was my iPhone 4. Mine has the Apple bumper installed and when I docked the iPhone, nothing happened. The phone seemed firmly attached to the clock but the battery wasn't charging and I couldn't get any music to play through the clock.

On a hunch, I removed the Apple Bumper from my iPhone and tried again. This time it immediately made the "charging" sound and any music I played on the iPhone played through the clock speakers.

In addition to using the standard "iPod" app, I was also able to play the Sirius satellite radio app and Pandora apps through the speakers. The included remote control was able to pause/fast forward in the iPod and Pandora app but not in the Sirius app. I believe this is a limitation of the Sirius app.

This radio sounds very good considering the size and price. It includes an FM only radio, docking station for most ipods, iphones and iPad. I have tested it with the iPhone4 and ipod Touch 4. There is an input jack for non-Apple music devices. You can set 2 alarms and each can be set for everyday, weekdays only and weekends only. The alarm can be a sound, a specified FM station, or an Apple MP3 player with a playlist named PHILLIPS. Note that the actual station frequency is not remembered in the alarm - it just uses the last station tuned in. This means you cannot go to sleep listening to one station and wake to another. The display is a soft white glow and there is a brightness adjustment for the display but it is of no value because it resets to full brightness whenever the radio is turned on or off. So for example you can set the sleep function and turn down the brightness but when the sleep timer expires and turns off the radio the display goes to full brightness. You might not want to put this near your face when sleeping for this reason. Every new computerized clock radio I have tried has this same stupid flaw with the brightness control.

The controls on the radio are not clearly marked and mostly use symbols that don't make it obvious what they do. However the remote control has clearly marked buttons and is easier than the on set controls.

UPDATE: After using this radio for a little over a month it has quit working. The radio will play for 5 to 30 seconds at a time then the sound goes off for 5 to 30 seconds. This repeats continuously at random intervals.
