New Philips Fidelio SoundSphere uses Wi-Fi and supports Apple’s AirPlay

Sydney, Australia – Philips today unveils the merging of two of its most successful product lines, SoundSphere and Fidelio, in order to bring music lovers the ultimate, full-fidelity listening experience. Combining the impressive functionality of its docking speaker range Fidelio, the superior sound quality of the Philips SoundSphere technology and Apple’s AirPlay®, the Philips Fidelio SoundSphere docking speakers deliver authentic sound – while your device simply stays in your hand.

With AirPlay, these Fidelio docking speakers give you both an amazing sound and hassle-free access to all your music from iTunes.

The Sound is in the design

The amazing sound quality of the docking speaker lies in its design. The curved design of the separate speakers with their unique free-floating tweeters on top of both speakers means the SoundSphere delivers sound in all directions, for a deeper and wider audio impression with minimised interferences.

The Sound is in the Air

The Fidelio Soundsphere docking speaker utilises AirPlay1 to seamlessly play music over a home Wi-Fi network from iTunes on Mac and PC, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With AirPlay, you enjoy all your music via the brilliant speakers without plugging in cables or even docking your device.

The docking speaker integrates perfectly with your iTunes, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and gives you an authentic sound experience everywhere in your home through a unique combination of technology, design and functionality. Philips Fidelio SoundSphere will be available from November 2011 with a recommended retail price of $999.
