Philips Fidelio SoundCurve DS8800W AirPlay Speaker

Philips Fidelio DS8800W AirPlay

The Philips Fidelio SoundCurve DS8800 is the second AirPlay speaker announced by Philips earlier this year, and will form part of a range of 5 systems, all with their own unique style and features, including the iconic Fidelio Soundsphere DS9800W/10 speakers with docking station.

Philips Fidelio DS8800W AirPlayWith the Fidelio SoundCurve DS8800 they have stripped out the docking station but kept a design that looks almost identical to the Fidelio DS9/10 speaker dock with the convex front panel, making it a stylish and simplistic design.The addition of wi-fi ensures AirPlay streaming runs smoothly and you can place the system pretty much where ever you want it (still needs a power supply though).

Although Philips are yet to release the full details of the Fidelio DS8800 system, we already know that it will come with 2 x 15W of total power output (RMS) and neodymium drivers. Backfiring bass pipes ensures enhanced bass reproduction from the DS8800. It will also feature USB and AUX connections, but it is yet to be confirmed if the USB supports charging/playing of connected iOS device/iPod.

Hopefully more information about the upcoming Philips Fidelio DS8800 Airplay speaker dock will be released soon. In the meantime you can find more information about the Philips Fidelio speaker dock range here. I hope to be back with a full review of the DS880 in the near future.

After Philips Sound on a Facebook wallpost mentioned the “The Philips Fidelio Docking speaker range with Airplay” i asked the question if there is more than one system with AirPlay available, to which they replied as follows:

“AirPlay is a feature unique to both the Fidelio SoundSphere but will soon be available on the Docking Speaker (DS8800) which is part of the Fidelio Docking Speaker Range to be released later this year. Watch this space…”

Philips have been quite aggressive in the speaker dock market lately with their Fidelio range, including signing up Liam Gallagher as Philips Fidelio spokesperson for their latest adverts.
