(Avoid extensive use of the set in a volume higher than 85 decibel because this may damage your hearing.)

Okay, this thing has all the technology - It's got bluetooth connectivity, including the ability to play music from another device wireless and answer phone calls (built-in mic). It has an SD card slot, and a USB slot for other devices (haven't tried this out yet). It has an iPod dock. It'll even rip your CDs. I haven't seen anything on the market with this many options.
* Ease of Use (Interface)
This is where things start to go a bit off. It's not the easiest device to use. The display doesn't show the most relevant information. For example, if you're looking at it in bluetooth mode, it just keeps repeating the words "BLUETOOTH" in caps on the screen. But that's redundant because I already know that fact due to the big flashing blue light in the corner. Also, though this thing looks like a clock radio, it doesn't function very well as one (it rarely shows the time throughout the various functions - alarm is hard to set).
It's fair - Not a whole lot of bass, mids are a little muddy, highs are very nice. Having said that, I don't have a comparable reference - I'm comparing it to my home stereo system and the bose wave radio.
* Quality / How's it Look
A good looking device - Definitely doesn't look cheap. It's got a big back end on it, but overall isn't too large. Fits on my nightstand just fine. The buttons are a little plasticky.
* In Summary
I'm going to continue using it - if only because there's no stereo out there that has this mix of features. I bought a bluetooth adapter for my ipod touch. It's very cool that I can be sitting anywhere in my bedroom and picking music. And if it runs short on batteries, I can drop it right into the ipod dock. But... I'm going to have to dig my 15-year-old clock radio out of the closet.
We haven't tried it with an iPod, or other solid-state playing device (MP3 player, USB drive, etc.) but we've used both the tuner & CD player. The Tuner seems to work like a charm.
The CD player worked great for a few weeks, but now it stops playing after just a few tracks are played, and cannot be made to play other tracks. The CD's are in good condition without smudges or scratches. Using the old computer trick of cutting off power to reset the device, we tried to reset it by turning it off & on... which only temporarily helped. We also pulled the plug & replugged it, with similar results. However, that technique no longer works. The user's manual doesn't address this problem in the instructions or the troubleshooting section.
We got this from a re-furbish reseller through Amazon (assuming that whatever problem it had would have been repaired) and I understand they don't deal with warranty issues, so I guess I'll have to contact Phillips to see if I can get some help, or a replacement.
If you want a cool looking clock radio to play your IPod at low volumes, get this. If your looking for a higher quality stereo sound, buy something else.
-Works with the 3G iPhone: I was a little worried that it might not work, as Phillips doesn't specifically say so. But when I got it, I was able to physically dock the iPhone and play my music through the system. I was also able to easily pair, and connect via Bluetooth. Furthermore, it charges the iPhone/iPod while docked.
-More connectivity than you can shake a stick at: We keep my girlfriend's mac in the kitchen, and this system was meant to replace that as a music player. We can now connect the mac via USB and play through here. We can listen to the radio, CD's, her iPod and even SD - though I'm not in the habit of carrying my music around on an SD card.
-The sound is pretty good: I'm not an audiophile, and the reason we got this was to have something that could put out music at a level louder than the mac's speakers. With that said, this system can get pretty loud (so much so that when I was setting it up in the kitchen, my girlfriend hollered from the upstairs bedroom to turn it down). The highs and mids are pretty good, and the bass is OK for such a small unit. It's not going to win any awards for the crispest, clearest sound, but I'm happy. Furthermore, this system will be perfect for the small get together's we have in our town-house when we're entertaining and have a group of about 8-15.
-The bass tones could be stronger.
-The controls feel plastic-y, and without the remote the system would be a bit of a pain to deal with (volume through the remote is easy, changing radio stations through the remote is easy.Read more ›
