SoundSphere Technology for Lifelike Audio
Philips Fidelio SoundAvia AirPlay Speaker AD7000W/37 Product Shot

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.

Compatibility Information

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. The Fidelio app requires a Fidelio speaker and iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad iOS 4.3 or later. It also works with a Wi-Fi-enabled PC or Mac installed with iTunes 10.

These speakers stopped working about a week ago, 6 months after I purchased them. I contacted Philips Electronics about the issue. They sent me the following reply.

"Dear Mr/Ms. Kaya

We have received the proof of purchase for your DS9800W/37. However, it does not meet the required criteria and is considered invalid. Our policy for this seller is to return back to the point of purchase for any warranty exchange.

If you have any questions please contact our customer service center at 1-888-744-5477 with the following reference number: INC1113518. Thank you for choosing Philips.

Have a great day!

This was a product Sold by: Dave Parkers.

When I was checking for the serial number of the product I noticed that the actual model number on the product is different than the one advertised here. The advertised model number is DS9800W/37 but the one on product is DS9800W/10!

If I realized this sooner I would have never accepted the product at all because this is a typical bait and switch case. The Philips representative told me on the phone that DS9800W/10 is not sold and supported in US!

I will never buy any product from Dave Parkers in the future. Obviously I should also be more careful about bait & switch methods used by such sellers. I don't know what else would be considered an act of fraud. I feel like I'm being penalized for shopping at Amazon.com and victimized by a seller who is practicing bait and switch in their sales.

The seller of the product is still an active vendor at Amazon. Shouldn't Amazon stand with their customers and obtain a reasonable settlement for them. In this case this would be either a full refund for the payment or an exchange of the faulty product with a brand new one of the exact model I've paid for, not the inferior model I was tricked to buy.

Here was my situation - I moved and didn't feel like putting in the effort to wiring the entire house for speakers, amp, IR control, etc... And the cost to do all that can be hundreds. So I set out trying to get an AirPlay speaker even if it was to hold us over for a year. Well two months of trying different units I ended up here. And before the first song was done playing I was hooked.

First - iHome's WL1 - I liked the mobility and battery life but HORRIBLE sound quality, sounds like a pillow was on it, it tries to over emphasize the bass to the point where it flopped the speakers at 1/2 volume.. went back in 2 days. (also went back because if iPhone 4S issues of dropout which later was identified as an Apple defect that's still not fixed, so note that the 4S is not compatible with ANY, AirPlay devices at all... not until they release iOS 5.1 some time in Feb 2012 or beyond)

Second - Bose - OK sound but weak and not real AirPlay (didn't realize when I purchased) - went strait back

Third - Philips sound ring - far better sounding then the iHome, but battery life was short 1-2 hours depending on volume, much less then iHome, and the bass was awkward...

Fourth - Philips 8800 sound curve - I gave up on battery power and decided that I needed a plugin and focus more on sound quality. I was extremely happy with this unit, it had great sound, look, and fit in all the places I wanted to put it... I planned on keeping this unit and most people may want to stop here... it's a fantastic speaker.

Fifth - However, Amazon had a huge 30% discount on this 9800 & 6800 units, so I couldn't resist and ordered both...

Absolutely breath taking sound. Like nothing you've ever heard or experienced even at low or full volume. After two months my lights on the back like so many others have just decided to turn to red which leads to reading forums and finding out there are huge issues with them. Then writing reviews like this and making people aware . There is a massive flaw in these lovely speakers they don't work and break on their own accord and once they break they are broken for good.
Do not buy this product ever if you value your time and your sanity. $700 down the drain. Now they go for 300 here. I just spent 2 hours on the phone with Philips pleading my case because I owned two pairs and they will not replace them because I am few months out of warranty. Now they are just trash. A gorgeous high end speaker... just done.

Only used for 6 months, then it got broken and even Philips Authorized Repair Center could not fix the speakers.

It's a good looking with nice sound, but the quality does not match the look and price tag.

Update:

Sent the speakers to Philips authorized repair center, and the center could not repair it, and suggested to sent back to Manufacturer for warranty repair.

So I called the Philips Service Hotline for the shipping address, and they just told me they could not repair the speakers because the speakers had been repaired by their authorized repair center, also they don't have repairing facility for this type of repair service. So my $699 speakers just become a junk.

It's a very bad service and product from a well know brand company! Never buy anything from this company again!
