    Philips Original Radio ORD7100C/10 review

    4  

    Styled after a classic Philips radio from 1955, the Philips Original Radio strikes a deliciously retro pose with its heavy duty Bakelite-ish casing, chrome knobs and brushed metal trim.

    These headphones have a refined, stylish appeal to them - but does the price tag buy you perfection?

    Philips' penchant for simple, robust design is noticeable, with the circular Fidelio SoundRing speaker featuring the same grey and metal aesthetics as the DS9010 iPad dock.

    You can always count on Philips to do something striking with the design of its speaker docks, and the doughnut-shaped Fidelio SoundRing DS3800W is no different.

    Featuring two 15W 3-inch speakers, a microUSB 'flexidock', Bluetooth connectivity, a slick design and a £200 price tag, it's a premium product for sure. But is it really the Android dock that users are looking for?

    The single-driver Philips SHE9850 earphones definitely offer impressive audio performance considering the price. Previous pairs of earphones from Philips have failed to live up to the benchmarks set by the likes of Shure and Denon. So we were rather pleased to discover that a corner has been turned in that respect.

    If you've got £200 to burn, then there are probably better things to spend it on than wireless headphones. But if your heart's set, then the Philips SHD9100s are sleek and lightweight for your bonce.

    Philips' stylish HTS6600 comprises a central unit for spinning discs, a subwoofer housing all the amplification and two attractive stereo speakers. It's a very handsome system at an attractive price, but will the touted 'Ambisound' technology really make us feel as if we're at the very heart of a full-on surround sound system?

    There have been several 'pseudo-surround' technologies over the years, but few work as well as Philips' Sonowave, which is found on this devilishly good-looking system.

    You have to take your hat off to Philips for coming up with the most innovative and literal interpretation of the one-box home cinema solution. Its SoundBar is easily the most practical TV-friendly form-factor in its class

    The Philips MCD908 DVD stereo system uniquely combines analogue hi-fi technology with the latest digital advances. The twin shoebox-sized components are well constructed with brushed metal fronts

    Philips' offering to this group test can be used as a straight iPod speaker system, but it's also got functionality as a radio alarm clock. It's ideal for anyone after something for the bedroom who would like the option of waking up to their own music rather than Terry Wogan's wit.

    Philips' HTS8100 Ambisound surround sound home cinema fits unobtrusively beneath a 37in or 42in TV screen. The neatly designed 'sound bar' can be wall mounted using the supplied fixing plate

    Philips' new multi-room WACS7000 Wi-Fi music system demonstrates that you don't need to be a computer whiz to install a wireless music network. The latest Streamium plug 'n' play music system replaces the WACS700 and is surprisingly easy to master

    The idea is simply that a microphone built into the outside of the earpiece picks up ambient sound which is then added, in inverse phase, into the signal applied to the driver of each channel, reducing the level of outside noise

    This ultra stylish, well specified 6.1-channel system boasts wireless rear speakers, which is a godsend if you're a stickler for tidiness. The unusual main unit features a touch-screen control panel and a side-loading disc slot.

    Think that a wireless multi-room music system would be too costly and complex to install? Philips' futuristic looking WACS700 Wi-Fi system is likely to make you think again. Its 'plug and play' approach means that there's no custom installation...

    There are no obvious flaws with Philips' HD1500s: the luxury headset is the most sophisticated pair of cans we've seen. At £350, the wireless HD1500s needs to be some kit to be worthy of the outlay. And they are
