According to Philips their DS7510/10 Fidelio model is “designed to go places” and although it is on the larger side its slim design and battery power does turn it into what can be categorized as a portable speaker dock.
Design, features & sound
The design of the DS7510/10 Fidelio is in line with most of its siblings in the Fidelio range, a slim and functional design that ensures the unit does not take up any more space than it has to. This also means that the unit is small enough to fit into a bag or suitcase should you want to take it with you when out and about.
Some of the features i think are great with this model includes that it is iPhone friendly, meaning it has shielding technology allowing you to dock your iPhone without setting it to flight mode first, a feature i expect from all new speaker docks in these iPhone times. The way the pin- connector is placed and the shape of the unit itself does also support docking of most iPods and iPhones, even when in their cases. The fact that you can also run it of battery power (AA/LR6 Alkaline x 4) means that you have the option to take it with you, with an advised battery operating time of 8 hours. It would have been even better if the battery was rechargeable.
Philips have added wOOx technology for precise bass without distortion to the system as well as Dynamic Bass Boost. The advised RMS output power is at 10watt, but without having had a chance to listen to the system yet i can’t really say anything about the sound performance of the system.
I will be back with more information and a full review of the Fidelio DS7510 as soon as possible.

* This is not a full review as the model has not been tested hands on and as such is based on product information and my own view of the collective information available on the system.
