Philips DS8300/10 Bluetooth iPod Dock with Apple Lightning, White/Grey

Product information

The powerful Philips DS8300 docking speaker delivers exceptional sound from Lightning connector compatible iPods, iPhones and iPads. Charge your device while listening to lossless audio, or enjoy the flexibility of easy Bluetooth streaming from anywhere in the room.


Key benefits:

  • Enjoy your favourite music while charging your iPod, iPhone or iPad via Lightning connector. Just dock it directly on the speaker to hear your playlists in superb sound. It also charges your device quickly while it's playing, so you don't have to worry about the battery running out.

  • Bluetooth allows easy wireless connection to compatible devices, such as smartphones, tablets or laptops.

  • The curved back cover of this Philips dock 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.

  • Advanced sound processing offers superior performance compared to analogue audio processing. By collecting your iPod's/iPhone's digital audio output and using digital processing at each stage of the circuit, a much higher signal-to-noise ratio is produced.

  • SoundStudio lets you change every aspect of sound, using only your iPhone, with controls that are intuitive and simple. Now you can tweak, tailor and create your desired sound experience and have your favourite songs sounding better than ever. SoundStudio also lets you listen to thousands of Internet radio stations worldwide, broadening your listening.

  • Audio-in connectivity allows direct playback of music from devices without Lightning connectors. All you have to do is to plug your portable MP3 player.

  • A 3L acoustic volume is allocated to each woofer with precisely tuned back-firing bass pipes that deliver truly more focused bass performance.

  • Includes AC power cord and remote control.

Q & As


Philips DS8300/10 Bluetooth iPod Dock with Apple Lightning, White/Grey 5 5 1 1
pounds translates to excellent value A really fantastic dock packed full of features, it is an excellent alternative to those other overhyped docks. For a start it sports the new lightning connector. If you dont have an ipod or an older 30 pin model ipod then you can always connect wirelessly via bluetooth. If your device doesnt sport bluetooth there is always the audio input. As a bonus its one of the few docks that can comfortablty support a new gen ipad. Then there is the app for iphone which allow you to turn your unit into an internet radio and tweak the sound, though thats already possible through your idevice's equalization settings. Minimalist design, nothing over the top with bright led functions add a nice touch to the unit. A small shame that it only comes in white. Sound is excellent, bass is in moderation and it doesnt sound too bloated or over the top. There is plenty of sparkle to bring out those little details and vocal performance is satisfying enough though could do with being a tad richer and warmer overall. Overall, crammed full of features, excellent sound quality with ipod/ipad and bluetooth connectivity make this a jack of all trades. 15 August 2013
