I have just spent most of this morning in the Apple shop in The Trafford Centre with the Apple technicians trying to get this docking station to play music via my ipad2. All we kept getting was the error message that 'this accessory is not supported by ipad' and it wouldn't play through the speakers - we could hear the music only from the ipad2. However it would charge the ipad2 OK.
After trying two different DC390 machines and a different ipad2, from within the store, the technician announced there was nothing more he could do and offered me a refund.
I left the store empty handed and extremely disappointed.
If anyone from Apple or Philips can give me an explanation as to why this product does not perform as stated I would be interested? I am still in need of a docking station with speakers, ideally with an iphone charger (I am aware of the DC291)..
I have given this 1 star and I was not able to submit this review with no stars.
