Philips DCB352 DAB Micro System/iPod Dock

Special offer

Product information

Free the music on your iPod/iPhone/iPad and enjoy it in superb sound quality with the Philips DCB352. Stylishly designed with a cool metallic finish, the system packs some great features including DAB digital radio and a thunderous 30W RMS power, delivering dynamic sound.

Key benefits:


  • With Dynamic Bass Boost the DCB352 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 – allowing you to enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.

  • Enjoy smooth DAB+ digital radio is, on top of FM analogue transmission, offering you a wide selection of choice and is delivered in a clear and crackle-free sound quality. With DAB+ digital stations there are no frequencies to remember, and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no retuning on the move.

  • Digital Sound Control makes it easy for you get the most out of your music by precisely adjusting the sound balance to match the type of music you are playing. It offers you a choice of pre-set Jazz, Rock, Pop and Classical controls that you can use to optimise the frequency ranges for different musical styles. Each mode uses graphic equalizing technology to automatically adjust the sound balance and enhance the most important sound frequencies in your chosen music style.

  • Enjoy all your tunes on your MP3 player or laptop thanks to the MP3 link. Besides the benefit of enjoying your favourite music in the superior sound quality delivered by the audio system, the MP3 link is also extremely convenient as all you have to do is to plug your portable MP3 player into the audio system.

  • Enjoy your favourite music from your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad whilst charging your device! The dock lets you connect your portable device directly to the system, allowing you to listen to your favourite music in superb sound for hours on end.

  • If you’re sharing tunes with friends then just plug in a USB device into the port on the DCB352 and your digital music will be played directly from the device.


Please note: iPod with colour display, iPod classic, and iPod with video are not compatible with dock charging. In Eco power standby mode, iPod/iPhone/iPad cannot be charged.

Q & As

Philips DCB352 DAB Micro System/iPod Dock 4.7 5 53 53
A smart looking all rounder I purchased this for the kitchen but it would look perfect in a bedroom or lounge as well. Goes well with all the other black & silver electronic devices already in the house. Good sound, looks very smart and does a great job with my iPod, CDs and of course listening to my favourite DAB radio station. Covers every option of music I would ever need, what more can I say! Would agree with other reviews that the screen text isn't particularly easy to read in daylight but if this is its only fault I am happy to live with it. Delivered in just 24 hrs from ordering even though it was ordered on 5 day standard delivery so well done John Lewis, excellent service once again. 04 September 2013
Great value for rmoney Compact, well-designed unit. Great sound for the price. Ideal for bedroom / kitchen or anywhere where space is a premium. 23 August 2013
Great sound, few drawbacks The sound from this system is fab, really good bass and good clear sound. The DAB is really easy to use and sounds great (most of the time, see below). The drawbacks are: It doesnt look as good in real life as in the pictures, has a plasticy cheap look to it (a little to shiny). The pop up iphone holder is a bit fiddly to open unless you have really dainty fingers. I would also prefer a bass treble control rather than the presets as the bass can sometines be a bit high on all settings. The biggest problem for me is that although my DAB reception is normally perfect, as soon as I pop in my iphone (eg to charge whilst listening to DAB) the reception disappears. I could fix this by having the arial cord running up the wall behind it (normally just drapes over the worktop and hangs down out of the way), but that would look rubbish. To be fair I am in a basement flat and other people might not have this problem. Overall fairly happy with purchase but with hindsight would have gone into a store to see what it looked like in real life first (bought online and collected at waitrose, very convenient) 31 July 2013
Good but flawed This is a great value good looking bit of kit which is very compact. The sound quality is good with strong bass. I have used my iPhone 4S and iPod classic with the device and have both worked and charged at the same time. My sister-in-law visited and was using Spotify through her iPhone with no problems. I would give this 5 stars if not for the CD deck. I have a lot of gapless albums I.e. dance music compilations. For some reason when playing these CD's the system puts a gap between tracks which spoils the enjoyment of a seamless mix. I have never encountered this with a CD player before only when playing mix albums via a USB stick, this really is very poor! 27 March 2013
Not exactly what it says on the tin! We bought this to replace our broken bose system and because we wanted a combined iPod player and also a digital radio. Whilst the system is excellent in terms of look, sound, ease of use and playback for the radio and CDs, nowhere on either JL's website or Philips' own website does it state that it does not charge certain iPod models - for example, iPod classics and videos - although they are compatible for playback but it is very frustrating that the system does not charge them. Only when you look on the small print of the instruction manual does it say so therefore I feel we will be returning it. My main complaint is in some way the lack of information or, rather, misleading/incorrect information. 22 February 2013
Unhappy with appearance John Lewis's ordering service and speed of despatch is, without question, first-class...I placed my order over the phone late yesterday afternoon and I received my parcel early this morning...How is that for excellent service? However, my disappointment is with the appearance and quality of this Philips Micro System, which is cheap and plasticy in appearance, as was the remote control. I re-packaged it straightaway and will return it to John Lewis. Suffice to say, I am unable to pass comment on the operation of the Philips Micro System. 20 February 2013
Incredible product I ordered a Philips DCB352 DAB Micro System/iPod Dock, John Lewis quoted up to 5 days delivery, it was with me in 2 days!'s fabulous, easy to operate, fantastic sound and good value for money, I also compared it with similar products and this came out tops! 15 February 2013
Don't usually write reviews, but this deserves one! Great product - compact and very good sound that fills the room. One point - I almost didn't buy this because the on-line details didn't confirm whether there was a remote control or not. The assistant in the store couldn't tell either and concluded that it didn't have one. I bought it anyway for the size / sound quality / price, but was disappointed by this aspect. However, when I unpacked it, there was a remote after all and I'm delighted with the overall package. So a note to John Lewis - please update your website to make it clear to your customers and staff that this includes a remote control. Thanks. 11 February 2013
