Philips' innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' renowned expertise in music reproduction with the power of the latest generation Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The result is fuller bass with more depth and impact, boosted voice and instrument clarity, and rich detail. Rediscover your compressed music in true-to-life sound that will touch your soul and move your feet.
The carefully designed curved back cover creates a highly effective acoustic structure for sound reproduction. Its clean curve enforces the rigidity of the speaker cabinet, dramatically reducing internal resonance and eliminating the vibration and distortion of sound. You get to enjoy superb crystal-clear sound in stunning looking speakers.

You can listen to your favourite radio programmes, discover new music with thousands of Internet radio stations worldwide, browse through your music collection and share what you're listening to with friends via Facebook and Twitter.

Wood has been used throughout history to craft the finest musical instruments. Its natural acoustic properties continue to make it the material of choice for the best instruments and sound equipment today. Not only is this docking station handcrafted in wood, advanced wood bending techniques have been applied to create the right curvature for the enclosure. The calculated curve reduces vibration and eliminates the distortion of sound, resulting in the delivery of natural, life-like audio.
This beautiful wood-crafted docking station has been coated with seven layers of lacquer, each applied with care, and polished to a perfect finish. The speaker shares this deeply gleaming look with grand pianos - a refined and elegant look that lends grace and charm to the home.
RMS refers to Root Mean Square, which is a typical measurement of audio power, or rather, the electrical power transferred from an audio amplifier to a loudspeaker, which is measured in watts. The amount of electrical power delivered to the loudspeaker and its sensitivity determines the sound power that is generated. Essentially, amplifiers are limited by the electrical energy they can amplify and loudspeakers by the electrical energy they can convert into sound energy, without distorting the audio signal. The higher the wattage, the better the sound power emitted by the speaker.
