Digital FM Radio
When you feel like a little live programming, flip on the radio. Digital tuning with auto scan makes it a breeze to dial up stations, and you can store up to 20 presets for instant access.
USB Direct for MP3/WMA Music Playback
Thanks to USB Direct mode, you can also enjoy music directly from USB devices. Just plug in your USB Flash device loaded with MP3 or WMA audio files and enjoy playback, complete with ID3 tag display of track information.
Play MP3/WMA-CD, CD, and CD-RW
Play back your favorite CDs and CD-R/RW discs, or better yet, burn a CD full of MP3 or WMA files--for hours of tunes on a single disc.
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.
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
Philips micro hi-fi system dock with CD for iPod/iPhone, remote control, wall-mounting kit, 3.5-mm auxiliary cable, and documentation.
Top customer reviews
My iPod hooked up easily and the remote gives basic control of it. The connection is good and there's no noticeable distortion or hum when using it.
As advertised, the unit has FM and it's in stereo. No AM, though. The auto-find feature starts scanning in the low-end of the FM spectrum and pulls in the first 20 stations it finds. In my case, it had problems with stations that were nearby.
Note that there's no battery backup. Even a slight power issue will cause it to lose all the settings. I plug it into a UPS since I can't afford to be late to work due to random power blips, which happens a lot out here.
My final whine is that the instructions are poorly written. They don't really give enough detail on how to do simple things like set the clock or the alarm, navigate MP3 or iPod directories. You know, the stuff that you'd buy this unit for.
Economical - $79.00
Thin - easy to mount, does not protrude
Integrated iPod/iPhone connector
Sound Quality - for a $79.00 product, it's pretty decent
Built in CD Player
CD Player has nice design. Motorize cover slides up and down
Supports USB Media
Remote Control included
Wall mountable, screws included
Batteries did not come with the remote! How much more could it cost for two AAA batteries?
FM Tuner only, no AM.. huh?
iPod/iPhone dock is not well designed. there's a spring loaded latch and it can take two hands to insert the iPod into the dock.
Remote control for iPod is tricky. Sometimes work, sometimes doesn't.
LCD display is very dim, very hard to see, not to mention it looks ugly
Remote has limited angle/range. At times, I literally have to be standing two feet away
Buttons on top not labeled very well. Hard to see
The screws included are flimsy. Once mounted, it feels like it would fall off. I had to use some oversize screws to make it sturdier.
UPDATE: October 6th
All of sudden, the unit started producing a low humming sound. when the unit is on, the humming sound increased. Tried a different outlet, and still same problem. Also, the left speaker started crackling and popping. I don't listen to loud music, and the kids listen to their children song on it via the an iTouch. Didn't even bother to exchange and just asked Amazon for refund.
