Philips Fidelio AD7000W AirPlay speaker

Philips Fidelio AD7000W AirPlay

While some of Philips Airplay range is already available in the market there are still a few models that we are waiting for, including the Fidelio AD7000W which Philips have confirmed for an end of October / early November release.

Philips Fidelio AD7000W AirPlayPhilips seem to have taken some inspiration from the likes of the Bose SoundDock and other more traditional looking iPod speaker docks when coming up with the design for the AD7000W. But unlike those more traditional systems, this one is stripped of most other  things than the absolute necessary for an Airplay speaker; wireless connection, on/off button, and volume controls. The AD7000W is all about AirPlay streaming.

Black mesh front and black plastic finish at the back, highlighted with a stylish aluminum top cover to give it that extra edge of style and finesse. All onboard controls and connections are discretely hidden away at the top or back of the unit, keeping the front clean and crisp. At the back you will find the wireless set up button, power connection, USB for connecting a physical docking station, and Aux-in for those that want the system but can’t use Airplay.

The AD7000W Airplay is the entry level unit in the range so the output power of 10W RMS is reflected in that as well. It is however reported to bring the same quality of sound has you have come to expect from Philips Fidelio speaker docks. To get the most out of the system you need to get the Fidelio App from the App Store, giving you access to set-up, 7000+ internet radio stations, weather forecasts, sound settings, and alarm clock functionality.
