On your desk or anywhere else, this docking speaker delivers crystal-clear sound that fills your personal space and ensures wireless Bluetooth streaming and also synchronises your iPod/iPhone/iPad with your PC.

Philips Audio
DBB to Preserve Low Tones for Deep Bass at Any Volume Level

Dynamic Bass Boost maximises your music enjoyment by emphasising the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings--from low to high--at the touch of a button. Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.


Philips Audio
Precisely Tuned Bass Pipes for Deep, Tight Bass Reproduction

The generous 3L acoustic volume allocated to each woofer is perfectly aligned with precisely tuned back firing bass pipes to deliver truly impressive and tight bass performance from such a compact speaker. The result--exceptional realism and an immersive listening experience.


PC Synchronisation with Your iPod/iPhone/iPad

Dock it, play it, sync it and charge it. Dig in to your favourite music on your iPod, iPhone or iPad while it charges and synchronises with your PC via USB and enjoy superb sound quality together with thoroughly unbeatable convenience. Let the great tunes go on and on without ever running out of power.


Philips Audio
Discover, Share Music and More Features via DockStudio App

The free Philips DockStudio app brings lots of cool exclusive features to your docking 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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this to replace my Philips Fidelio iPad dock DS3500 which is a neat box but it doesn't have remote control. So the obvious first bonus of the newer DS3600 dock is that it has a remote, as well as a more powerful (twice the output wattage) sound output. The bass is quite punchy and the sound is room filling. The iPad slots onto the dock very nicely (I have iPad 3) and in fact it works well with all iPad types (my other half has the iPad 1 and that sits on the dock nicely too). It looks and sounds great with iPod touch too.

The main things that stop me giving it 5 stars are the following:

- the Bluetooth streaming is easy to set up but a bit stop start because the first tracks often just misses the first couple of seconds ... Strange. I don't know why that is, and can only think that the Bluetooth capability of the speakers aren't as good as the DS3500 model this had replaced.

- there are no USB and headphone cables which the Amazon listing claims they have. Ad it' not that they're missing, the instruction booklet clearly only lists the speakers, AC adapter plug and remote ad the contents of the set. I will report the misleading listing to them.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This dock from Philips has a really nice size for those who don't want to take up a lot of space, it also has a very neat look to it.

The contents also include the power adaptor to power this unit up(it doesn't have any slots to insert batteries into to make it portable), and probably one of the most stylish looking remote controls you will ever see, the remote can be used when using the dock or Bluetooth feature.

I managed to get hold of a family members iPhone to which I tested the dock, it inserted very nicely with no hassle. Upon docking I received a notification to download a special app for this speaker, however do note that it's not mandatory to download it as it works fine without.

As you would expect from most docks these days, it does indeed charge your iPhone when docked.

When it came to trying the Bluetooth feature, I was a bit anxious to whether it would work on Android phones, this is probably down to a Bluetooth device I had used in the past which would only connect to iPhone Bluetooth and the fact on the page description & product box, it mentions nothing of compatibility with Android/smartphones with Bluetooth capabilities.

Well I can assure you it does work! I used my Sony Neo V to send audio to the speaker.

Another way you can connect your audio devices to this speaker is by using an auxiliary cable and plug it into the "MP3-LINK" slot located at the back.

When it came to the sound quality, apart from it lacking in bass, which is bad for heavier rock & dub-step audiophiles, it does deliver fantastic quality when it came to music such as pop, electronica & classical etc... For the price it's currently at, I can't fault the quality.

I have received this product as a gift and unfortunately only after I've received it I realised that it is not compatible with my iPod (7th generation). I have found a solution -> buying an adapter that connects the Iphone old versions or old iPods to new connection. However, it did not help either. I went to the store, found the product and asked customer services guys to explain why even with the adapter it does not work.
The reason is just simple - it is simply not compatible with the software/network of new iPods/iPhones. So if you are looking for a stereo for your iPhone 5 - don't waste your money on this product. Hope this review finds relevant people and you change your mind before making the purchase.

Bought on a warehouse deal at a great price. The item was missing the outer 'pretty' packaging but as far as I can see beyond that it is in brand new and unused condition.

Using it in the kitchen which is pretty big (7m x 3m with high ceilings) and it is easily powerful enough to fill the room nicely even with the washing machine and extractor on. You would need more grunt for a party, but for general familiy listening this is great. The bluetooth feature is much better than I was expecting it to be - it's actually really good! I have two devices paired and it will always perfer to connect to the last one used if it is in range which isn't always what I want but hey ho.

Internet radio is very good too - I can listen to almost every Slovak radio station I could ever dream of.

Really, really pleased with this purchase.

I have only had this item for a couple of weeks, it seems to work very well once I had got it paired with my iPhone. my only misgiving is the scarcity of any setting up info, you have to download it from the web site.

I'm reserving full judgement on sound at the moment. Sounds a little concert hall, wide, I've played with equaliser settings and still not there yet. I wanted to comment as I don't have an i-blah so I thought how I got on with Android etc might be useful.

BLuetooth connection
Samsung Galaxy S3 (android)
Dragged down from Top, pressed bluetooth, scanned, found speakers as 'philips ds3600', went to music, pressed play. That simple.

Cowon J3 (their own software)
In menu/settings/bluetooth selected scan (initially after first time did it automatically), had it scan (won't find it if the speakers are paired with something else), found speakers as 'headphones' initially then after it does say Philips 3600, selected this, connected straight away. Played music no problem.

Remote
What really surprised me with both was that the remote works. Not just volume up and down but also track forward and back and pause etc with non apple products.

Cons
There's no bluetooth on/off on the remote, you have to go to the machine to do that which seems a little silly the point of bluetooth is to do things a little remotely. Whereas as the aux has an on/off on the remote but because the Mp3 player will be connected via the jack and therefore close to the speakers and making it so that you have to go to the speakers to turn the mp3 player on/off select album etc. Surely it would make more sense to have the bluetooth on/off on the remote or even go crazy and have both.

It's expensive

The silver pill shape in the middle is tacky cheap looking silver plastic. It wouldn't fool anyone.

Power
Apparently it will go onto standby after 15mins. There is no power off button on the unit or remote.
