Great Sound

Room-Filling Sound

The DCM278/37 features 10 watts of total output power, pumping 5 watts each into two 4-inch woofers. It's a bass reflex (ported) system, which enables it to pump out a lot more low-end than you might expect in a system its size.

Dynamic Bass Boost

When you want a little extra low-end, use Dynamic Bass Boost. Similar to a "loudness" feature, it lets you get deep and dramatic sound, even at low listening levels.

Digital Sound Control

Dial it in a bit more with Philips' "Digital Sound Control" EQ processing, which offers preset EQ curves for various styles: Jazz, Rock, Pop, and Classic Rock.

Solid Design

Wall-Mountable

The slim and versatile DCM278/37 will blend right into your living space. It can sit securely on any shelf or cabinet, or you can wall mount the device.

Motorized Sliding Door

A motorized sliding front door is another slick addition. The door housing the disc slides up and down at the touch of a button, and offers the visual bonus of seeing the disc spin through the transparent window.

What's in the Box

When I got this piece, there were no reviews at all, but still I wanted to buy it for its stylish looks. Frankly speaking, I didn't have much expectations on this prodcut interms of the sound quality, since its just 5W, but I was really surprised to see the sound it generates! Awesome sound quality - Too good for your bedroom. Obviously, you cannot compare it with a hometheatre system but for a iPod/iPhone dock, its way at the top. The FM radio, CD, AUX and USB ports are a big advantage and I was very pleased that it supports iPhone 3G and 3GS as well. I totally liked it and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

ths sound quality is sufficient. it can be loud enough for my enjoyment. what i really like the most is that you can get your music from many ways. it has radio, it plays cds, plays mp3s from a burnt cd, mp3s from a usb drive and you can dock and play mp3s from your ipod. I think you can also link other players using the earphone jack adapter that was included in the box. I also like the design and how compact the player is. I also like what I paid for it too. over all this product is a great deal.

I really liked the look of the unit and the functions that it offerred, and after seeing only 5-star reviews, I decided to purchase it. I wanted a good CD player, usb drive player, radio and it to function as an alarm clock. It provides an alarm, slowly increasing the volume of whatever you decide to wake up to, but no snooze. However, it does not provide a clock for very long. 15 mins after turning the unit to normal standby mode, the unit will enter Eco standby mode saving 1 watt, and the clock will no longer display. Therefore, I cannot see what time it is when looking at the unit. Also, when the clock is on (for the 15 mins), you have to look at the display straight on to actually read the display. I don't understand why Philips designed it this way. I may now return it because one of the basic features that I desired (a clock) is not up to my standards.

Otherwise the unit provides decent sound, pulls in FM stations pretty well, and has a lot of features. The remote works well, but the layout could be a little better.

First of all, I'm 40, I dont listen to the radio or music a whole lot, basically while I'm in the car. That does not mean to say I dont have a good ear for sound, I do, I just dont listen to music a whole lot.

That said, a few previous posters mentioned something about a rattling noise. Yes, I heard it too & it is a little annoying. The volume wasn't turned up real loud either. I do expect better from a brand such as Phillips. That rattling can be lessened by turning off the bass boost or by adjusting the pre-set equalizer setting to something different. But who wants to keep doing that, right?

The sound is clear & fills the room. Some posters complained about a muffled sound. I think that comes from too much bass & selecting the wrong equalizer preset & the fact there are no separate treble & bass adjusts. If it had those it would sound much better.

However, this thing has it all...CD player, ipod/iphone doc, radio, USB & the other mp3 input jack & a headphone jack. Plus it has a remote control. Dont lose the remote or you lose the ability and access to all the features.

Very stylish, not too high, not too deep, elegant.

I bought mine used for $60 + shipping. I would be very disappointed if I paid full price, despite all the features. I am just a very casual listener of music & the flaws pointed out in previous posts are noticeable. This is going to be for my son's birthday, he'll be turning 13, so if he doesnt like it (I know he will) I'll be buying something else.

I could have bought something similiar with fewer options & only slightly cheaper but went with this because I respect the brand, love the styling & for all the features it has. Bottom line, I'm happy with it but I wouldn't pay more than $50-60 + shipping. Anything more than that I'd choose a different model, a different brand or buy a new but inferior brand with similiar features.

Update: Purchased this in November 2009. As of September 2011, the speakers crackle. We have very rarely exceed a moderate volume (10-14) the whole two years, even though we do tend to leave it on most of the day each day. Still, I expect speakers to last about 7 years on average, especially when used at a moderate volume. I have a pair of 40-watt speakers from radio shack, for example, that have lasted over 12 years before starting to crackle and they were used extensively--and at higher volumes.

Like the looks of this thing still, and its sleek functionality, but if it can't reliably pump out sound, who cares about the bells and whistles?

---------------
Easily hung on wall. Provides piece of paper with labeled drill holes to make it easy. Includes screws and dry-wall mounts. Manual states that the two screws should go into a stud but I had no problem mounting it on drywall. Very sturdy.

Sound quality is great. We're using it for the kitchen and living room in about a 1400 sq ft. space. It's great for the price. For not having a subwoofer, it's clear and does decent bass. By far the sleekest stereo I've seen or used.

Works great with iPods and iPhones. I'm using Pandora on it every day and LOVE it.

Programs up to 20 FM channels. Pretty easy to do. Remote control is not the most intuitive in the world, but it works at a pretty good range--at least 25 feet (haven't tried further than that) with line of sight.

Highly recommend!
