Philips DS8530, Sound that Fits Your Home

The elegant & chic Philips docking speaker delivers stunning sound from your iPod/ iPhone/iPad with PureDigital technology. Advanced pure digital sound processing technology offers vastly superior sound performance compared to the conventional analog audio processing technology that is found in docking players that use the analog audio output from an iPod/iPhone. By collecting the iPod's/iPhone's digital audio output and employing digital processing at each stage of the circuit, a much higher Signal-to-Noise ratio is produced. The result is unsurpassed sound clarity that is in perfect balance.
