SoundSphere Technology for Lifelike Audio
Equipped with SoundSphere technology, these speakers let you experience music in its clearest, most lifelike form. A free-floating tweeter design creates a wider sound stage and much more natural audio experience than traditional speakers. By centering the tweeter directly above the woofer, a single sound path is created, delivering more detailed and authentic audio.
Stylish Wood Construction Enhances Acoustics
Wood has natural acoustic properties that make it the material of choice for the best instruments and sound equipment. The Fidelio SoundSphere's enclosure is handcrafted in wood for lifelike audio.
FullSound and SoundCurve for Distortion-Free Sound
For additional sound enhancement, these speakers utilize Philips's FullSound technology, which restores sonic details to compressed music, dramatically enriching and enhancing sound quality while reducing distortion. FullSound combines Philips's knowledge of music reproduction with the power of the latest generation digital signal processor (DSP). The result is fuller bass with more depth and impact, voice and instrument clarity, and rich detail.
The clean curve design of the speakers dramatically reduces internal resonance and eliminates vibrations and distortion for sharp, detailed sound quality.
Easy Operation with Remote Control
For straightforward operation, the speakers come with a remote control that complements their design and an aux-in jack for fast and easy connection to virtually any electronic device, including MP3 players and stereo components.
The speakers are handcrafted from 70 separate pieces of real wood, precisely shaped to maximize the acoustic properties of the cabinets and provide a natural experience so authentic, it's like the artist is in the room with you. They have a sleek, modern design with a polished black lacquer finish.
Free Fidelio App for Music, Alarm, and Other Fun Features
If you own an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad, you can unlock even more features for this wireless speaker using the complementary Fidelio app. The Philips Fidelio app gives you access to over 7,000 free Internet radio stations. It also lets you share your favorite music with friends via Facebook and Twitter, set customized alarms to wake up to your favorite music, and enjoy detailed weather reports.
The speaker set is compatible with iPod touch; iPod touch 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation; iPhone; iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4; iPad, and iPad 2nd generation.
