Philips Fidelio DS9800W – iPod System with Airplay

For lovers of the uncomplicated by the sofa streaming, Philips has a special system in the range: the Fidelio Soundsphere DS9800W (1000 Euro) relies fully on exceptional optics and Apple’s transmission protocol AirPlay.

At the latest with the unusual music server complete system is MCi 900: the developers at Philips have not afraid of new ideas. The design of the boxes with the free-standing tweeter and at an angle above bright woofer is at least as striking as unusual. Target this design is not only a spectacular appearance – instead she should lead to radiate the sound in all directions and to ensure a better and deeper staggered stereo imaging.

Philips is now consistently continuing this approach with the Fidelio DS9800W and combines it with Apple’s streaming standard AirPlay. Instead of a built-in player a Mac or PC with the playback software serves the Philips system therefore iTunes (starting with version 10.1) or an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (from iOS 4.2) as the primary music source.

From the sofa or desk, the music tracks wirelessly land right, active SoundSphere loudspeakers via Wi-FI. This includes the amplifier unit for both boxes the Wi-FI and control electronics, a receiver for the supplied infrared remote control, as well as an “aux” Jack for analog guest players.

The left box is passive and is available through a standard speaker cable with its right colleague in contact. Both systems impress with their solid and weighty construction: composed of two hand-carved solid wood shells and with seven layers of black piano lacquer sealed, crowned by a sunken Burlwood, the also the gooseneck tweeter is. The slightly curved shape of the Cabinet while away is reminiscent of a flower vase, is designed to reduce vibrations and resonances but to a minimum.

Read the manual

Before you come to enjoy of his music collection, you must register Philips Fidelio system at the local WI Fi network . This is because of a missing display and Ethernet connection for the first time not so easy as you thought. The system is configurable with a look in the manual and the help of an Internet browser itself but ultimately with reasonable effort.

And once successfully paired, the set when you turn automatically connects to from now on your home network. Finally the desired song or playlist on iTunes or the iPod press play – and already you hear the music through the Philips system select. Data is in quasi “on-the-fly”, so during playback, convert the Apple Lossless Format and genuine CD quality (44.1 KHz / 16 bit) packet sent.

These audibly better audio quality is also – in addition to the range – the biggest advantage over the Bluetooth transmission. So don’t go too fast, the juice runs out iPhone & co at of the inside streaming binge, also a loading dock is included in the package.

Sovereign from pop to classical music

After a few bars surprised the very brilliant and dynamic sound of the speakers. The play was balanced in an impressive manner – without this blur details. Tommy Emmanuel “Green Thumb” (“Endless Road”) sounded freshly alive and very detailed, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in f major impressed with uniformity and a nuanced game of the oboe. This remarkable performance is limited by no means only on certain styles of music. Whether classical, jazz, pop, rock or House – felt the Philips system in each Division at home.

Also, SoundSphere concept of the Philips designers seems very good to go: the stereo image built up very natural that with a fairly wide range of sweet spot. Also, the speaker even at higher levels were always Mr. of able.

Conclusion

You can unconditionally recommend the Philips Fidelio DS9800W any Apple aficionado, looking for a visually impressive and above all also great-sounding system. However, one – word should have configuration – no fear of manuals.
