5.0 out of 5 stars Nice dock-seems like a lot of misinformation about it, January 18, 2012
This review is from: Philips AS140/37 Fidelio Bluetooth Speaker with Micro-USB Dock (Electronics)
To begin-I almost passed on this dock because of the reviews--but there seem to be some misconceptions
first-right out of the box with no downloads of any kind-this dock paired with my samsung galazy 5.0 via bluetooth. The sound was fine and seemed as good as one can expect reasonably with 5 watts per channel. I then paired this with two different sony walkmans--one with an external blue tooth adapter and the other with blue tooth integrated. Both paired easily and produced good sound.
Now I may add the apps to my samsung--but it certainly isn't necessary as some reviews make it seem. I haven't tried the wired connection as there seems to be no reason to at this time--though it's nice to know I'll be able to if I want to.
I will say-as connected-I do not get the automatic time sync between the samsung and the dock--but the time is quite easy to set. Radio quality is ok--nothing fantastic but adequate-better than my Yamaha tsx 140 which cost considerably more.
So I'm quite pleased with this dock-though it would have been nice to have had a remote control. Volume is not overwhelming-but it reaches quite loud levels. Sound is clean and clear-though I would say the bass is quite weak-as expected.
Charging seems very good and my samsung docked quite easily--it helps to lean the docking mechanism slightly forward.
All in all a nice little dock with good sound for the cost and quite easy to pair with blue tooth devices, with a decent FM radio as well. Certainly there are systems and speakers which provide a fuller sound-but they will cost a bit more than this-and generally take up a bit more space-so for the price I recommend it quite highly. More detailed instructions may have helped others with the blue tooth pairing-the instructions provided are minimal
